For $597, I hope to shout shipping is free. Who do they think they are selling to, the military??

Seriously, 597? It is a decent coat, and if I were given it I would wear it occasionally. My Columbia though has great features, light weight warm waterproof, many useful pockets and breathable. Add a cheap hunting vest and I have all the features of this coat, and I have removable layers. I think I will pass on this monstrosity lol

i cant see bpaying that price for that jacket. i go all out on items like a backpack, and knife. but for 597 i can get a top quality anorac (which will be alot stronger) and spend the rest on insulating layers

Im guessing you posted this without noticing the price of that jacket? Interesting Jacket, Interesting Price.

You are right, I didn't look at the jacket. But I didn't say 'buy this' either

I always thought that jacket Adam wore on Mythbusters was some sort of firemans coat.

Mall-ninja for sure.

Rib pads are pretty useless, back pads are better (covers more area, less spacing) pockets are few.

Better go with a SCOTT jacket if you can aford it or de-thread the sleeves of a black or tan BDU shirt, use it for a vest and put a thrift store coat over it that has at least two large pockets in the front and one inside.

Make your own padded H2H vest if you want out of closed cell sleeping pad foam for a lot cheaper.

Your money is better spent on food and Carhartts.

I have a Mark I in black and a liner. Yes they are pricey. They are also indestructible and very well-made in the USA. It is standard issue for the 504th Sidewalk Commando brigade.

Not to rehash a 100 year old thread here but..

I recently purchased a Mark I Kitanica for the low price of $150. The guy selling them said he's taken a beating on them, simply because no one is going to buy a $500+ jacket. So they're out there and for cheap too, if you do find one definitely buy it, you won't regret it.
