REVIEW – Vertx Multicam Smock
ITEM: Multicam Smock
A next generation offering of the classic combat smock.
The traditional combat smock made of a cotton or NYCO blend of material, is intended to be a windproof (but not waterproof) garment to allow some protection from colder conditions yet allow breathability during high activity periods.
This iteration of a combat smock from Vertx is not only windproof, but waterproof as well, due to it’s highly technical material that stops water droplets on the external surface, yet allows water vapour to pass through to prevent the wearer being struck by hypothermia.
