Tactical jackets are much more complex than most people think. Unlike regular winter attire that can be as puff and rigid as the designer wants, tactical clothes need to keep as low a profile as possible. Tactical jackets need to stay warm, dry, and flexible, lightweight, without adding too much to your weigh. Also, you should be able to move freely inside the jacket, even if you have body armor on top of it. While in some situations you won’t need any body armor, dangerous jobs don’t know which these situations are and we need to be ready for everything. There are three levels of tactical jackets for army, depending on the severity and type of cold you might be facing:
  • Rain & Wind Jackets
    • Hydrophobic rural jackets
    • Flexible urban jackets
  • Winter Anti-Frost Jackets
    • Thin thermal jackets
    • Puffed hydrophobic jackets
  • Severe Cold Arctic Jackets
The last type is meant to enclose as much of your body as possible, trapping the heat inside. Additionally, the type for even lower temperatures is made to work in tandem with hear-locket tactical shirts, providing a lot of protection without adding a lot of volume to your clothes. Thanks to new technologies, there is quite a bit of diversification when it comes to tactical jackets. Those who want to buy one to complement their security can find an ideal model for sale, with the price being less than any designer jacket in the market today.

What Makes a Tactical Jacket Special?

For civilians, protecting yourself from the cold is relatively simple, just add more layers. But, if you know that you will need to have a bulletproof vest, additional gear, and carry your arms as well, this becomes an issue. Tactical desert jackets use better and thus a bit more expensive materials in their construction to reduce the volume and weight of your clothes. We know that the more you add to your non-ballistic garment the less you will be able to add to your armor. Also, you need to have unrestricted access to your jacket pockets when you are wearing body armor, as some of the essential gear may be stored there. Additionally, while mens’ and womens’ jackets need to be cut differently due to relative proportions, they still need to serve the same purpose.

What are the Best Tactical Softshell Jackets?

As is the case with any type of tactical clothes or tactical gear, the best jacket will be the one that fits your mission requirements. Picking out an item that is optimized for what you need will give you the greatest tactical advantages. These differences include the size, weight, and thermal protection provided by the jacket, but also the design. Using urban olive jackets in the city will reduce detection and allow you to move from cover to cover in a dangerous situation. This allows both military and police personnel to do their job with reduced risk of attack. And, for arctic conditions, having an orange jacket is ideal if you want to be visible from the air in case you need a rescue. The vast distances in the open frost or tundra mean that there is little chance of enemy flanking you, so being visible to allies is much more beneficial.

How to Choose a Combat Jacket?

Make a list of mission and personal requirements, starting from the essential and finishing with what you would like to have. For instance, having a concealed carry jacket may not be essential in the open field, but you will want to have it in urban settings. Additionally, if you are concerned about wearing ballistic protection for security, you will need to take that into consideration. For domestic situations, including law enforcement and locations security, taking warmer options with concealed body armor has proven to be the best option. But, if you will be under any risk from rifle fire you will need a hard plate, and that carrier will go over your jacket. Thankfully, with modern tactical winter jackets that stops being that big of an issue, provided that you can keep your plates from freezing.


Keeping warm in the cold has been a tactical issue since the dawn of time. It’s a good thing that now we have options to stay very warm and dry without adding too much weight and volume to our gear.  If you pick out a good jacket, you will have a tactical advantage over any threat that you might encounter with inferior gear. And, while the thicker options will lower your agility compared to your summer outfit, the thermal protection it will provide will more than make up for that fact.
