The OE TECH Soft Shell Jacket is a lightweight, weather resistant that is versatile for all types of weather. The outer layer is made of polyester with many pores in it that are smaller than a raindrop but bigger than a molecule of water vapor. This means that it keeps water out while still remaining breathable to allow moisture from the body to escape. Other features includes a lined stand up collar with storage space for the hood. There are two shoulder pockets, each have a 4x4" Velcro panel for patches. There are two internal pockets and two large chest pockets. On the left forearm there is a small zippered pocket. On the back is a double zipper pocket for glove storage. Under the sleeves are ventilation zippers, on the elbows are a double layer of fabric for reinforcement while crawling. This is the perfect solution for a tacti-cool look that won't burn a hole in your wallet.

This jacket is a steal. For $72 (GET out and play promo) this jacket is beyond worth buying. I just received it a couple of hours ago and I'm still finding new pockets and zippers all over the thing. I like how the jacket is pretty light and it sits well on your body. There are no problems with mobility and if you wear it long enough, you might forget its on you. There are many pockets and zippers all over the thing that can hold whatever you want. The two front chest pockets are fairly large and fit my phone easily. I've put my plate carrier on with it and It worked well with the jacket. Overall, this is a must for anyone who is looking for a good outdoor jacket or something that you can wear wherever.
Lots of pockets
has a tactical look
hide away hood
iPod routes through the pockets
works well with chest rigs/plate carriers
None as of now
As for the fit, I'm 5'10" and growing. I opted for the XL because I have fairly long arms and was afraid the sleeves would be too short. The XL fits perfectly and gives me a little room for when i get taller. Like most people say, order a size up and you will be fine.

Amazing quality for the price. I love this jacket! Looks really tactical and can be worn in either extreme weather or even just cool weather with the same comfort due to the zipper vents. If you are still in question weather you want to buy this jacket or not, i really suggest that you do. I had to wait for almost a year to be able to find a seller that actually had my size in stock. Another seller tried sending me a $20.00 fleece as a weak substitute since they were having a problem trying to get them back in stock. I later ordered it from Airsoft GI and received it in 2 days.
Looks really expensive, breast zipper has extra pockets for cell phones, pens, wallet, (iPhone 4 fits perfectly snug) repeals water, hood can be stored away, nice deep foliage color, the arm Velcro squares are a perfect size for any patch including a full sized IR US FLAG patch.
Like mentioned before from other buyers it does run kinda snug. I am glad I read someone's review that stated that it should be purchased a size bigger than normally worn. I wear a MEDIUM/REGULAR ACU/BDU top and I went with a LARGE. It fits well on my torso when worn with a t shirt underneath but im not too sure how it would look with a full uniform top on. The other thing to consider with size though is that you cant go 2 sizes bigger either since it gets longer on the sleeves. The sleeves at one size bigger are much longer than a MEDIUM which is the reason I stuck with the Large. The only other thing I can think of that might bother some people is that the hood hidden away in the collar kinda makes the collar stick up.
