An exclusive collaboration between Platatac & Minerva Technical brings you the aptly named Helsby Smock, named in honour of Operation Helsby in Malaya, 1951.
This lightweight, wind & water resistant traditional pullover-style smock has been designed by frontline specialist operators who need a technical garment that provides enhanced functionality while wearing plate carriers and other mission-critical equipment.
The dual directional side zippers allow easy donning & doffing while wearing kit & provide extra ventilation in extreme environments & fast ease of access for critical medical situations if required. The shorter-style cut allows unhindered leg movement & is designed to sit above assault belts and the stowable hood which provides full coverage and secure fit while still providing the wearer exceptional freedom of movement and vision.
The smock also features two Velcro closure bicep pockets, two forearm pockets and a front zippered kangaroo pouch for maximum storage. The elbow areas are articulated for ease of movement and reinforced with 500D Cordura and can accept various OEM protection inserts.
