OR – Wild Things

Wild Things Low Loft Jacket – FR uses FASTPACK technology with GORE® PYRAD® flame retardant and 80 grams of PrimaLoft® Fusion (2.4 oz). The fact Thais new jacket integrates WL Gore’s PYRAD technology should be enough but that jacket integrates even more new garment technology. PYRAD is a treatment for existing fabrics so you retain most of the base fabric’s inherent capabilities.

The Wild Things Low Loft Jacket – FR is a lightweight insulation piece that is durably water resistant, windproof, highly breathable and fire retardant. It can be worn as a stand-alone outer-layer or as an insulating mid-layer with a cold weather clothing system. Low water pick-up and quick dry properties maintain the effectiveness and lightweight nature of the jacket. 80 grams (2.4 oz) of PrimaLoft® FUSION is used to provide superior lightweight insulation – wet or dry. PrimaLoft® FUSION has the highest warmth to weight ratio (clo/oz/sqyd) of any Berry-compliant synthetic insulation.

Air permeability is optimized to facilitate “fast packing” and low pack volume of an insulated layer. This enables the soldier to quickly don and doff (pack and unpack) the jacket as their mission and/or environment changes.

GORE® PYRAD® is a self-extinguishing fabric that offers protection in heat, flash-fire and arc-flash incidents. Key features include:
• Protection against heat and flame
• Increased thermal stability
• FR properties build into laminate structure – will not degrade with wash and wear
• Maintains physical integrity of the garment after exposure to flash fire

The jacket is designed for use by the dismounted soldier in cool to cold and dry to damp conditions. The lightweight and low pack volume enables the soldier to easily stow and carry the jacket while on movements. Once the soldier comes to rest, the combination of insulation with high breathability make the jacket ideal for “baking dry” any moisture build up in the base layers thereby maintaining soldier comfort and effectiveness.

Compared to the current ECWCS L3 Fleece, the Wild Things Low Loft Jacket – FR offers a much broader temperature range capability, greater breathability, significantly higher water resistance and windproofness, as well as lower pack volume. It also provides FR protection. In addition, it does not retain dirt and other contaminants like Fleece.

    That’s one nice looking jacket, I’d love to have a version of it in regular Gore-Tex and a solid color since it would just be for everyday wear and since I’m not even a Tier 1.5 Mall Ninja I don’t need the FR or the camo.

    • We hear you, and we’ve got you covered as well. A non-FR version in Coyote is planned in the same style. FR is hot for us at the moment.

        What ever happened to your Belay Jackets in military colors? – those were great. However, now even the civilian colors in normal range of sizes seems hard to come by/

        Also your short lived run last year of the reversible Primaloft sweaters/ yest/ hooded sweaters were a big hit. Wish those were a regular part of your line up. esp in multicam.

    These jackets have the worst zippers ever. The first one I was issued, the main zipper got stuck (for no apparent reason) right at the bottom and wouldn’t disconnect. I got a second one and the same exact thing happened. both were worn only a handful of times..

    • In the past we’ve had some negative feedback regarding zippers on a few particular styles. But, then again, also some positive. We strive to make improvements in every iteration of our products, based on user feedback, both negative and positive. This particular FR style has not been released to market yet, and it’s construction and components, including zippers, are unique.

      A little early to bash the zippers Rawboss, don’t ya think?
