Quick Overview

The OSSA Jacket is a culmination of Platatac’s 29 years of market place experience used to engineer the perfect HARDSHELL. Years of research has lead us to our refined OSSA pattern, which allows for optimum practicality. We have developed our own PLATATEX fabric, which comes in carefully chosen colour options. These colours represent the future of both tactical and outdoor wear.  The waterproof properties of PLATATEX is complimented by its light stretch. We have carefully selected a 2-Layer Gore-Tex®, waterproof, breathable, Ripstop, Nylon MultiCam® fabric, for our camouflage variant. 



Colours


GOTHIC OLIVE – Based off the natural earthy colours found in early Romanesque architecture, this colour allows for both use in outdoor and urban environments. The subtle green hue overlaying an earthy tan creates the perfect middle ground between smart and tactical. We have tested this colour in many environments and believe it to be one of the most versatile colours we have produced to date.


MOUNTAIN BLACK – From our recent expedition to Mt OSSA, we took notes of our surroundings. One thing that stuck out to us was the presence darkness void of light pollution. This darkness was accompanied by a slight reflection of the ocean creating a cool hue scattered through the sky. Our mountain black is a true representation of the sky that we experienced that night.
