5.11 Tactical – Taclite Anorak


5.11 Tactical first unveiled the Taclite Anorak at this year’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market as part of their upcoming Fall/Winter 2015 line. It is made of 5.11’s exclusive poly-cotton blend Taclite fabric, with a Teflon finish for stain and soil resistance, as well as a 100% cotton flannel lining which provides 40gm of insulation. The addition of 5.11’s Quixip two-way zipping, which extends through the sleeve, allows for the Anorak to transition from cool to warm conditions while maintaining comfort. The Anorak also features kangaroo style pockets with 5.11’s Rapiddraw for access to a concealed firearm.

    With Teflon treated instead of a REAL waterproof membrane and a big 5.11 logo at the shoulder.

    Why… Why? WHY?!

    Mein Gott, I want tactical clothes without a prominent logo again!

      I know. I actually liked the look of it until I noticed that stupid 5.11 logo.

      If it’s made of membrane fabric like Gore-Tex, than it would be not Anorak anymore, technically. Anorak is not designed for pouring rain or freezing arctic cold.
      Anorak is purpose built highly breathable, quite, versatile simple field layer. Kinda similar with british smock.
      There are tons of substitutes in the market if you want the absolute waterproof and wind break function.

        >> Strictly speaking, an anorak is a waterproof, hooded, pull-over jacket without a front opening, and sometimes drawstrings at the waist and cuffs, and a parka is a knee-length cold-weather coat, typically stuffed with down or very warm synthetic fiber, and with a fur-lined hood. <<

          I was wrong in terrible way. Didn’t know it was origin from Inuit words. Sorry for my ignorance. It was indeed for freezing arctic cold.
          I was only just aware about market and military term and value. All the anoraks I’ve seen were lightweight water-repellent packable layers since combat anorak.

    Note to 5.11, I’d probably buy 5.11 gear if they didn’t plaster their logo all over their stuff, or made it easy to remove their logo.

    The logo is nothing a black or brown sharpie can’t fix. From my experience, that coating is amazing for the first few hard uses in wet environments, but degrades pretty quickly, and once it’s gone you might as well wear a sweatshirt.
