THE TRADECRAFT JACKET | INSULATION SYSTEM BY OUTDOOR RESEARCH
by Erik MeisnerApr 12, 2018
Tradecraftis an old word that used to refer to the work, or craft, of any profession, or trade. It likely acquired its specific association with spy work during World War II, though it is a word most heavily associated with the Cold War. ~vocabulary.com
The wordTradecraftcan trace its lineage to the Cold War spy jargon of the 1960’s. Although the Cold War is over…I think…the word has continued to be used in the Special Operations community.SOF soldierscontinually hone their tradecraft to reap maximum effectiveness in their dangerous profession.Outdoor Researchhas been supplying the military and more specifically, SOF Units with high-quality outerwear for some time now. In a previous article, I covered theInfiltrator Jacketand Pants. Which is the company’s premier Gore-Tex outer layer. One part of their IAS (Integrated Apparel System) is the Jacket
Designed to be used as an insulation layer or a stand-alone piece, theTradecraft Jacketis a versatile garment. Lightweight ripstop nylon makes up the majority of the shell. While critical wear areas like the elbows are reinforced with a thicker, more durable rip-stop nylon.Primaloft Goldis the gold standard for synthetic insulation. And it’s what will keep you warm in theTradecraft Jacket. Whether wet or dry. The adjustable cuffs, drawstring hem and insulated soft-touch collar all help keep your body heat where it belongs. Nearyour body. Finally, on the exterior, you’ll find a pair of zippered hand warmer pockets along with a chest pocket for your phone.
These types of insulated jackets maintain their usefulness for 8+ months of the year. Because of this, they remain a critical piece of my kit. Living in Northern Michigan, my closet is full of various insulating layers. Some for skiing and snowshoeing. Others for a day at the range or fall camping. Either way, I find them to be the most useful type of jacket available. Although not entirely waterproof, the Primaloft insulation does a great job of maintaining loft and warmth even when soaked. Something most down jackets can’t claim.
While the Tradecraft Series consists of three different pieces available in different colors, don’t feel like you need to purchase all of them. Pick and choose wisely because they are not inexpensive. However, I’ve always lived by the mantra “you get what you pay for” and it hasn’t let me down yet. TheTradecraft Jacketis no let down either. Made from the highest quality materials available, coupled with a very well thought out design, it’s a true performer.

All user reviewsAll reviewsMost relevantLinwood2 years agoI only wish I would have gotten this soonerThere is a good reason this jacket has such good reviews. It\'s because it delivers lasting quality and performance without compromise. I compared this jacket to many other high end jackets and this one won out as having the best overall performance, durability and versatility. I would agree with other reviewers that if you need to layer under this that you should size up unless you prefer a very fitted fitment. I am between what I would call a small to medium sized frame for most manufacturers winter outerwear with dimensions being 5\'10\" height, 40\" chest, 33/34 sleeve, 15.5 to 16\" neck, 33\" waist; and, while the medium fit in sleeve length was better than the slightly longer sleeve length in the large, the over all fit for the medium was a little snug under the armpits and if I tried to layer underneath, the medium jacket somewhat restricted my mobility so I purchased a Large. If you require to wear gear underneath then I would definitely size up, in my opinion, if you like to give yourself a little more of a comfortable and relaxed fit but not a baggy or loose type of fit. The sleeves are a little longer in the Large but the velcro keeps them in place well and during full range of motion the extra length prevents the sleeves from riding up your forearm; so, it\'s a fair trade off for a better fit under the armpit, chest and torso area if you desire to have more versatility and increased mobility/range of motion. I own many OR products and they have always met or exceeded my expectations in the field; combine that with their excellent service and it\'s a win-win in my opinion! Thanks OR for the great gear and service! I can confidently recommend this product and I would definitely buy this again.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comRick3 years agoGreat Fit, Great Look, Stays Warm!So I was going back and forth about this jacket vs a 800+ filled down alternative. I really wanted to stay with synthetic and the Primaloft Gold has a great track record. This jacket is really reasonably priced when compared to the alternatives. A bit heavier and less compressible than down, but keeps you warm when wet. I\'m really happy with how good the Mas Grey looks. It doesn\'t look super tactical and I think does a good job of passing for a normal-ish but serious puffy. Added bonus is that the pockets all mirror those on my other OR jackets (single breast pocket and two on the side). Side pockets stay pretty warm as well. Interior pockets do fit a nalgene. The elastic there is a little loose but with it zipped objects there are fairly secure. The coat is definitely warm and seems to do a good job cutting the wind by simple virtue of being pretty dense. It is really comfortable to wear, collar is really nice, the two-way zippers are nice if it is cold and you want it partially zipped but you want access to your beltline, just move the zippers up from the bottom and you can have the bottom unzipped but the top half zipped. Zippers seem solid. Cons, it is not a super packable coat. Parka+synthetic should have everyone realizing that. I wouldn\'t have any hesitancy to throw it into a small compression sack or stuffing it down into a backpack, but this will not stuff as small as down-different jacket for different purpose. It is more streamlined than the PCU puffy coat-I\'d say comparably warm, and you don\'t look like a total nut walking around town with it. Sizing seemed pretty accurate. I can wear either Medium or Large OR jackets. I went with the Large and am glad I did. It feels good and just a little snug when I am testing my range of motion. I\'m 5\'8\" and the sleeves go down over my fingers but the Velcro cuffs let me secure them comfortably.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comCyrus4 years agoIt feels like a woobie turned jacket.I bought this hoping I could get away with wearing the Multicam version in uniform. However, with the logos on the right sleeve and chest, and the black inner collar material, I don\'t think that\'s going to happen (OR, maybe add some velcro for patches on the next round?). The feel of the collar material isn\'t my favorite as it has a velvety texture. That\'s could be just a weird personal preference though. The rest of the jacket material feels like a thin sleeping bag and seems to be more durable than what I initially thought as it did well rubbing on the concrete while working under my car. I especially like the inside and the pockets are lined with the same material as the exterior. Some jackets with the softer fabrics tend to irritate my hands when they get dry during the winter. The jacket is very warm with only a t-shirt underneath and has worked well regulating my temperature anywhere from 25-65 degrees Fahrenheit in damp conditions. When I\'m being cheap around the house and not turning the heat on, it\'s been a great casual jacket, and I\'ve even slept very well in it a few times. Which to me, is the ultimate test of comfortable clothing and everything you could want in a woobie, or now jacket. I\'m a thin 5\'11\" and I would rather wear a size small for a trimmer fit in the chest, but have learned OR tends to short the sleeve and waist lengths, so I went with the medium. It\'s roomy enough for me to fit a sweater or fleece underneath.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comJ2 years agoGreat jacket! Nice fit!This jacket is great! I purchased Mas Grey in size medium. The jacket is a good fit. Usually OR jackets are tight in the chest for me (I am 5\'10\" 175lbs). The fit is an athletic cut; thin in the waist and wider in the chest/shoulders. You may want to get a size up. As a size reference, I wear a size small in Arc\'teryx LEAF and Army 7 ECWCS. I have enough room to add a couple layers underneath. The sleeves are cut longer which helps when stretching your arm out with gloves. The material is thick and has weight but is nicely constructed. Cons: - the jacket is kind of shiney (eggshell). It would be nice if it had a matt tone. - not big deal but the inside has a bronze color. It would be nice if this was earth tone or another shade of mas grey. - it would be nice if the shoulders had velcro. I will probably sew this on myself. Pros: - great fit with an athletic cut - rugged materials - well constructed hood with extra protection around the neck and face. - very warmLessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comMike24 years agoBest buy of the winterI bought this jacket because I needed a heavier winter jacket - score. I bought the gray color and I use it for taking my boys to school and before and after ops. Used it for about two months and I can say this is a very warm jacket. Wore it to the snow (45-50° F) and it was too warm for that. Windy mornings, around 20-30°, perfect. I do not layer under this jacket expect for a light long sleeve shirt. You have to know it\'s not down, so it doesn\'t pack down small (pun intended). It lofts very well, but is a little bulky. Way less bulky that the military \"Michelin Man\" jacket. Someone reviewed and said it was like two smoking jackets - close. It\'s way warmer and thicker than two. This is not going to be great for being active, but standing on scene, when the action\'s over, this is my go to. I work then throw it on when I start to cool off. I\'ve brushed up against stucco, adobe and rough textured metal and worried the fabric was torn - jacket still looks new. Appears to be two weights of material on the outside and has held up very well. I have recommended this jacket to coworkers and I feel very prepared for worse weather.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.combooholtz4 years agoI love this parka!I had been watching this parka for a long time and finally bought this during the Veteran\'s Day sale. I needed a parka for my OCP wear since we do not have our cold weather issue yet and definitely won\'t this year. I am always hesitant when ordering items as a medium sometimes fits but can run small and a large will fit but can be too big. I am 6 ft 185 lbs with an athletic build or lean. First impression when putting the parka on out of the box were amazing. The sleeves and length of the parka are a perfect length. I am always frustrated when I get medium tops and the sleeves are too short. This drives me insane and I have to order medium long with my OCP tops. The length of the parka is a bit below the belt line which is perfect in my opinion. Definitely not too short. When it comes to the velcro on the wrists, I\'m sure it might be helpful, but I don\'t foresee the need for adjusting it too often. So, no issues there. When it comes to the hood, I would say it is spacious. Definitely room for a hat or helmet. When it comes to the zippers, yeah there could be a better pull cord on them but they work just fine. I will have to see about long-term. The only thing I see as an annoyance is that it is tight in the underarm area and will probably retain too much heat because of this. Otherwise, cause undue sweating in the armpits. This might not be an issue, just a first impression. So, next question my wife asked. Will it fit over your uniform? Yes, it does and it does perfectly. No need for my fleece with this parka. I will be just fine with the sleep-shirt, uniform top, and this parka. Am I happy with my purchase? Absolutely! This parka is great. I will see about the durability over the long-term, but I am not worried with Outdoor Research\'s infinite guarantee. I have had to use that guarantee on a pair of gloves and I was truly impressed. Yes, the prices can seem high, but when purchasing for the long-haul, you have to consider quality and warranty.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comNate4 years agoThis thing is seriously warmThis jacket is incredibly warm - probably one of the warmest I\'ve ever owned. I particularly like that the neck and face baffles are well-placed, so it really feels like the jacket is really well designed and made. Two minor complaints - like some others have said, the zippers suck. Expect to try 2-3 times before it finally zips. I have the transcendent down hoody, and its got a rock solid zipper..why not use that one. Second, I think it runs a bit small. I liked the fit of the large (I\'m 6\', 205lbs) in the chest and arms, but it was too tight around the lower waist, where the jacket sits below the beltline. It restricted my movement and made me feel like i was going to pop a seam if i bent over too fast. I ordered an XL, and now can fit a layer or two underneath. Sleeves are a tad long, but the cuffs work well. Overall, I think this is an excellent product, but needs a few tweaks. I would buy it again.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comPete5 years agoNo longer cold on a long wet winter nightUsed this for about 3 months now during the wet PNW winter. Good kit. For comparison this fits somewhere between the ECWCS Lvl 3 Fleece Jacket and Lvl 7 Down Jacket in terms of warmth. 25% heavier then the similar Patagonia jacket but 50% warmer. Not water proof but definitely water resistant. Couple of improvements I would make; 1. Remove all exterior branding. If you\'re wearing a jacket on a cold night in the field, dudes are going to ask where you got it. This will also let you fly under the radar from the sharp-eyed nitpicking fun killers. 2. Additional exterior zipper pockets. Especially on the sleeves. 3. Interior glove pockets. 4. Tie down points in the pockets. Similar to the quick clips for keys OR has on some of their other products. 5. Change the interior collar material to a coyote or multicam fleeceLessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comJamie4 years agoBest thing for a cold weather environment ever!This jacket is awesome! It easily allows you to do away with at least three of the layers of the Army\'s 7 layer system. I\'m easily comfortable with layer one (and 2 for some) and this jacket in 0 to 20 degree weather. If it\'s raining I\'ll throw a light hardshell over it. I\'m also able to compress it down and it takes up very little space. I will say I ordered a Lg first and it was a bit to snug for my liking. I\'m 6\'0 210lbs and when I bent over or extended my arms over my shoulders the bottom of the jacket would rise up over my waist. The XL wound up being perfect. I highly recommend this if you plan on spending long periods of time in frigid weather.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comLuke O.4 years agoTradecraft JacketThe good: Its very lightweight, breathable and definitely warm. Construction is solid and attention to detail is greatly appreciated. This item will definitely be used as stand alone as well as part of layering with the Infiltrator Jacket. The bad: Like according to most other reviews, the fit is tight, especially in chest/shoulder area. I will be returning and exchanging it for a large. I wear almost all my tops medium, but this one was too constricting in the chest. I should have listened to other reviewers when ordering. I think all will be nice and dandy with the bigger size.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comCav Scout4 years agoMulticam for DaysOR has some amazing products in their military line, but don\'t triple the price just because they\'re offered in multicam or drab colors. This coat is built from the same fabrics and insulation as the Dead Bird brand, but sells for half the price. And being OR, the quality is on par and the customer service is a head above. Figure out sizing before ordering though. I\'m 6\' y\'all and trim. I wear Small in Arcteryx but Medium in OR, very consistently. The medium size in this jacket allows it to be worn over several layers or an external vest carrier.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comEndorphin Rush5 years agoLight weight, low mass, impressive insulation piece.This jacket is impressively light weight, low mass, and is surprisingly warm considering those factors. While not windproof, it blocks the wind much better than I expected. With nothing other than a next-to-skin thermal layer underneath, I stay comfortably warm in this jacket into high-30 degree weather while remaining static. While active, I\'ve worn this jacket into the mid-20 degree weather with comfort. Like the Colossus parka, this jacket fit too snug for me in size XL. I am 6\'0\", 225 lbs, and normally wear an XL pretty comfortably. I\'ve needed to bump up to an XXL in the Tradecraft Jacket and the Colossus Parka.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comDesmopilot4 years agoWarmest coat I\'ve ever ownedI love this coat. It\'s lightweight and tremendously warm without being bulky. The hood is effective for use with a helmet or without. I particularly like the folding brim. The neck baffle helps keep heat in when the coat is slightly unzipped. My only negative is the 2 way zipper. It tends to come unlocked at the bottom after movement. Not sure if it\'s a design flaw or perhaps a fault with mine. Otherwise I would give this jacket 5 stars.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comDerrick3 years agoWarm but very trimFit is a bit tight overall, especially the chest and hem. I\'m 5\'7\", 32\" waist, athletic build, and I purchased the medium. I wore this in 5 degrees, moderate activity, for about 8 hours, layered with a grid fleece 1/4 zip and base layer, and I didn\'t feel cold so it\'s a fairly warm jacket. Wouldn\'t be able to wear a fleece jacket underneath so I wouldn\'t use this if I knew I would be static in temps below 25. Overall, a good insulated jacket for mild-moderate activity. Size up if wearing layers though.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comJason D.2 years agoMas Grey Colosus by ORHighly recommend this item. Warmest coat I own. Also the most comfortable. Like wearing a sleeping bag. At 6\'5\" and 36/37 sleeve lengths the XL fits perfectly. Schedule jammed to the left had to purchase without using the pro deal and U.S. Elite had the best price for paying out of pocket. Sidenote: I wound up getting rid of the other cold wx coats in my deployment kit. Highly recommend this item.LessReviewed onus-elitegear.comWilliam3 years agoWorth the moneyWith the very warm winter we\'ve been having, I finally got the chance to use it. It never fails when I teach classes, it always gets cold. The cold wind always beats you up when watching from a catwalk above the walls. This jacket was amazing. It blocked the wind and cold as advertised. I can\'t wait to try it out on a call out/ barricade when I\'m in kit and static. Awesome product!!LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comMike4 years agoA little heavy, but warmThis jacket is warm, but on the heavy side. The insulated hood is a welcome addition when the wind kicks up. It would be best used during relatively stationary activities where you don\'t have to worry about hauling the weight around in your pack or on your body. Fit is pretty true to size. I\'m 6\'1\" and 190lbs and the large fits me well. The hem is a little tight, but not bad, and the arms are long enough that I can reach overhead without being too long when my arms are at my sides.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comAndy Kz4 years agoWarm, but durable?This jacket is Windproof and water resistant. It is an excellent jacket. If worn as your outer layer in the woods, it will snag on everything and is not durable enough to wear as an outer layer. I have ridden my motorcycle to work with it on and didn\'t feel the wind though. I highly recommend this jacket as an insulating layer or just to head to the office in cold weather, it would definitely not last in a tactical environment.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comEthan5 years agoNever feel cold againAmazing jacket, like a field jacket liner for arctic conditions. Im 70 inches 200 pounds and a large fits me great under or over body armor. The zipper requires practice with gloves on and is the only negative. This jacket absolutely crushes the ECWS. Amazing for throwing on over kit after a movement, or wearing in a patrol base. Breathable and articulate enough to wear under kit comfortablyLessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comCobra - LE/Mil4 years agoGreat, comfortable insulated jacketThis is a great insulated jacket. If you have used Primaloft Gold products before, then you know how warm it is. Very lightweight and very packable. Don\'t know how durable it is yet because I\'ve only been using it for the past month, but I don\'t see it having any issues. On cool days I just run it un-zipped down the front and it isn\'t too warm. Would recommend, great valueLessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comMike5 years agoSo warm, very quiet, solid buildThis is a solid jacket. Feels like two Patagonia Das parkas sewn together. Sooooo warm. Very quiet jacket for birdwatchers or hunters. Hood fits great with or without a helmet. Zippers plenty durable. 6\'5\" 200 lbs and XL fits perfectly. This may be the most solid jacket I own. Well done OR!LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comChewy4 years agoGreat cold weather jacket....FOUR AND ONE HALF STARS!!!!!!Solid piece of quality cold weather gear / not too bulky, great fit, perfect amount of insulation for moderat, active wear- and provides a suitable beefy layer for beneath a decent piece of Goretex for heavy weather conditions- pockets positioned just right for easy access of gear, hood is not too cumbersome - that said, zippers could be smoother given the price of this item! Overall I rate this at. 4 and one half stars!LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comH35 years agoSuper WarmThis is The Jacket to have if you will be static in the cold. As a police sniper in Wisconsin, static in the cold is my job. This is easily twice as worm as the level 7 ECWCS parka it replaced. If you are wearing over body armor go up a size. Probably wouldn\'t fit over super bulky armor like an IOTV but definitely over a plate carrier or some of the lower profile vests from Velocity Systems. Hood and pockets are perfectLessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comJr5 years agoSuper warm jacket...good qualityJacket is made well and is super warm...layers nice under plate carrier or other body armor...if you are active I would go up one size...i normally wear a large in everything but found this jacket to be tight in shoulders so went up to xl...only negative is they need to add more hook and loop to the wrist closures...a slight modification fixed the problem but out of the box there wasn\'t enough Velcro to tightly secure the wrists. Other than that good jacket P.S. the jacket is only 70d fabric not durable enough if you plan on moving through thick brush without a shell worn over it.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comEndorphin Rush5 years agoWarm and ComfyI traded my XL Tradecraft for an XXL Tradecraft Jacket, and all is now right with the world. The XL Tradecraft fit too tight in the torso, but the XXL fits just like it should. I am 6\'0\", 225 lbs. and normally wear an XL comfortably, so this jacket\'s sizing does run a bit on the small size. As I\'ve said in a prior review, this jacket is warmer than it\'s weight and mass would lead me to believe it could be. On top of that, it is also feels fairly wind resistant. Although I have worn this as an outer layer, I\'m not sure how durable this jacket will prove to be in rough conditions. But, as a layering piece, it should hold up quite well.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comEndorphin Rush5 years agoI love this parka (in a bigger size)Absolutely love this parka. It is relatively low mass considering the amount of warmth that it provides. It is also surprisingly windproof. For what it\'s worth, however, while I wear everything else in size XL fairly comfortably, I had to bump up to XXL in this parka. Size appears to run a bit small.LessReviewed onoutdoorresearch.comDesert2 years agoColor is great!The gray / silver color is actually beautiful, not flat like it appears in the photos.
