Arc’teryx LEAF Drac Jacket and Pant

We’ve mentioned the new Drac Jacket from Arc’teryx LEAF several times, but they’ve just released the new Drac Pant. In fact, I literally purchased mine yesterday from Tactical Distributors.

Both are manufactured from Burly Double Weave softshell (look for an in-depth article soon). The thing about Burly Double Weave is that it’s a cold weather product so keep that in mind. You’re getting wind and water resistance along with a generous 4-way stretch. We’ve mentioned that the DRAC Jacket offers a generous cut and the same can be said of the pant. If you’re on the edge between sizes, go down rather than up with Drac.

The Drac Pant features an interesting combination of styling and features. It’s as if the Combat Pant and Sphinx Pant had a baby. All of the features of the Sphinx with the stretchy goodness of Burly Double Weave.

You get:
-Two slash hand pockets
-Two rear pockets with angled access
-Two tool pockets with Cordura reinforcement
-Two calf pockets with flaps
-Two cargo pockets with flaps that fit standard rifle magazines and are easy to access from a seated position
-Built-in gaiters
-Ingenious webbing covered kneepad pockets with access points for straps

Both the Drac Jacket and Pant are available in Crocodile as well as Wolf sizes Small – XXLarge.

    I concur that they tend to run a bit generous in the fit and to size down rather than up. My only complaint with the jacket is that the cord locks that came with it on the hem line don’t work, could just be my jacket or it could be because it was made in the China factory. If it matters to you where it was made, be sure to ask the vendor before you purchase. Otherwise, it is a good jacket to have and the burly double weave fabric is just right in weight for when you don’t quite need a hard shell.

    I’ve really been lusting over the Drac jacket in Wolf. I have quite a few years on my Gamma MX and it’s been one of the best jackets I’ve owned.

    Pliner,
    Some cord locks require priming before they’ll work. Try pulling on the tab until you hear a click and they should work just fine (my drac needed this as well).
