Produced with feedback from operators and already in use in some areas of interest around the world. The SORD smock in A-TACS FG Camo is very generously-sized, designed to be worn over armor or numerous layers of cold weather gear.
Like the A-TACS AU version already available, the ATACS® FG version is produced from 52/48 NYCO Material.
The SORD Smock features a generous hood. Instead of the usual wire common in most smock designs, it’s been replaced with a more pliable tubing.
The smock features ELEVEN pockets (five around the waist, four on the chest and two on each bicep). The bicep pockets consist of a large zipper opening main pouch, with a smaller top opening pocket for range cards, etc. The outer face of the bicep pockets features a large 4” x 4” Velcro panel for attaching IFF, Flag patches etc, however if this feature is not needed, each garment comes with a spare panel of matching material to conceal the loop.
The four chest pockets include two large pockets with button closure and two side zip opening pouches for easy access while wearing body armor or chest rigs. The two main pockets feature large slotted buttons for quick and easy access while wearing gloves or with numb fingers. In the center of the chest on the left side there’s a zipper opening to allow access to chest pockets on any garment worn underneath the smock.
The remaining five pockets around the waist (four same size as chest pocket, fifth double sized) also sport large slotted buttons and can be used to stash gloves, rations or just about anything else to boost your load carrying ability if required.
The smock also features a large pit opening on each side which when undone allow the wearer to dispose of unwanted body heat. Each forearm is reinforced with matching 1000D cordura in case a low crawl is necessary. The lower forearm of each side also features four tie off points for gloves, etc.
