Outdoor Research Releases Infiltrator Jacket & Pant

Outdoor Research is the first company to fully commercialize WL Gore’s FLEX2FIT fabric into a garment. The Jacket and Pant are Hybrid-Mapped designs featuring a combination of lightweight GORE-TEX and the GORE-TEX FLEX2FIT fabric.

You can see the Coyote FLEX2FIT panels in these photos which are a great demonstration of the Hybrid-Mapped design.

Referred to as ‘Topo’ during development due to its similar look to a topographic map, FLEX2FIT is a stretchy version of the popular GORE-TEX fabric. This stretchability means the wearer is more mobile even though the garment offers a closer fit which better facilitates the transfer of perspiration from inside to outside the garment.

Design Features:
Fully Adjustable
Advanced Combat Helmet Compatible Halo-Hood
YKK™ AquaGuard™ Vislon Zippers
Zip Hand Pockets
TorsoFlo® Venting
Internal Front Stormflap

Functional Details:
Pocket Placement Above Harness or Pack Belt
Hook/Loop Cuff Closures
Elastic Drawcord Hem

The Infiltrator is offered in three colors: MultiCam, Gray and Coyote. The FLEX2FIt panels are color matched for the Gray and Coyote. However, due to the stretchable nature of the fabric, FLEX2FIT is not available in a printed variant because the pattern is distorted when the fabric is stretched.

Both US Elite and Tactical Distributors are selling the garments and have inventory. In Europe, they’re available from Armamat.

    Outdoor Research, Please make FR shell line. Jacket and paints.

    This will cross over into civilian market too (think bushcraft / campfire) and burn holes.

    SSD,

    Any ideas how this fits compared to the Ferrosi ? I’ve been waiting for the release of this from the original post from a while back and am excited to pull the trigger.

    USE has a nice OR sale right meow, but of course this jacket doesn’t qualify.

    Is it just me, or is everything on the OR Military site not able to be added to a shopping cart?

      rearmount, I had the same problem..I called the number provided and ordered over the phone with a very helpful CS rep..

    While I’m a huge fan and an end-user of a lot of OR’s mil-spec products, this jacket & pants set is way too expensive. As well made and thought out as most OR’s gear is, think the Wild Things Hard-shell jacket & pants set are a superior deal.

    Anyone know if this is Berry compliant? I know Beyond had a similar jacket in the works too.

    After Outdoor Research on their Facebook page supported the protests against the President the day after the inauguration, they’re not going to get any of my money. Too bad, I like their clothing and have bought a lot in the past, but playing politics was enough for me to move on to other brands.

    Just received my jacket today. Ordered a large (wear a size 44 jacket) and it fits perfectly. I would definitely describe this as more of an athletic fit; not sized to over your kit. Side zippers are a cool feature. Quality appears top notch and consistent with other OR products I have invested in. Yes…invested in.

    • SSD says:

      It stretches. It’s not going over Equipment, but it will go over insulation.

    The OR Military site has both a “TAA” and “USA” version that have the same specs, but a $55 price diff. Anyone know the difference? Berry vs. non-Berry?
