Helikon SAS Duracanvas Smock - Black
The Helikon SAS Smock is yet another superb addition to the Helikon and The Bushcraft Store range
It combines tradition and functionality in one package and is yet another quality piece of kit we are proud to be stocking. The military smock jacket returns in what is an improved version of the original as it is packed with more features. Helikon have preserved the classic elements but enriched them, so the vintage style goes hand in hand with functionality.
The SAS Smock is fully zipped and fills the gap between two anoraks in the Helikon-Tex offer: the heavier and more advanced Anorak Pilgrim Jacket, and the lighter Woodsman. The whole smock is made of Duracanvas material which is suitable for waxing and increases protection against light rain and snow. It is light and universal The SAS Smock Jacket is versatile because of the simple cut and the possibility of adjustment in several places.
The light hood is adjustable in two planes. This solution allows the hood to be precisely adjusted to the head depending on the weather conditions, hat, etc. Thanks to two cinches - one at the waist, the other at the bottom edge - you can freely adjust the degree of fit of the jacket to the body. This is perfect to increase or decrease the ventilation under the jacket according to your needs. Additionally there is the convenience of having vents placed under the armpits.
Combined with lightweight construction, Helikon made a jacket for any weather from summer to winter with lots of pockets and comfort. The SAS Smock works great as a bushcraft jacket because of the simple but well thought out cut and capacity. This smock features eight pockets, on the outside, four classic square pockets fastened with Canadian buttons.
It is a tribute to the iconic British uniform jackets and their functionality. A pocket with a button sewn on the tape is easier to open, and the risk of the button falling off is minimal. Under the upper pockets, there are two more, fastened with zippers on the side. They are best for carrying flat items. Under the lower pockets, identical solutions allow you to hide and warm your hands. In each breast pocket, there is a special loop for attaching equipment, which protects it from loss. There are also paracord loops on both sides which are ideal for attaching gloves can be attached to the paracord loops on both sides of the jacket.
If you're a bit old school like me then you will remember when there were very few dedicated outdoor jackets that were not heavy, sweaty waterproofs so you searched around for a combat jacket. Now we are all spoilt for choice and the Helikon SAS Smock is a doozy and a brilliant option for an everyday field jacket.
