Because of the reviews, I ordered a size large than my actual size. I should have ordered the same size as my gortex jacket. Also, the picture does not show the velcro for the name tapes and rank. The velcro name tapes I ordered from this site were too long for the pre-placed velcro spots on the jacket. You will need 4inch long name tapes.

This is a warm jacket, however the front zipper broke on me the first week I had it and it could not be replaced. In my opinion they used cheap materials. I contacted the manufacturer and they would not help at all.

I was very excited when the jacket arrived. I had orderer a smaller size to facilitate layering. The chest, arms and shoulders fit just fine and did the girth. ONE PROBELM, IT ONLY CAME DOWN TO MY NAVEl! Look at photo and get a hint! Any cold drafts would not be kept out. Long enough to cover my buttocks, but woefully short in the front. Everthing else seemed quality but these things should be longer in the front. BACK IT GOES!

In my opinion....
The ECWCS is just what I'm going to need for the cold days to come. It goes perfectly with my ABU APECS. Couldn't have asked for better quality!

I received the jacket and it was thicker and heavier than I had expected. I ordered a size larger than normal and it was a perfect fit. Thanks again to US Cavalry for providing a perfect product and excellent service.

So i ordered this jacket thinking that it would be a cheap way to go look like the real thing. wow!! its great!!! it is so much heavier than i though it would be!! it really almost identical to the standard issue, and it is the only one in this color that i could find right now. it is a great deal, and an awesome jacket. youll love it. guranteed!!

For an import from China it serves it's purpose. It's not as thick as the issue fleece liner but it does make a big difference when worn under ECWCS Parka (much cheaper too). The color says dark navy, but it really looks black. I haven't washed it yet so I don't know how it will hold up or if it will fade or shrink. The inside mesh pockets are shallow and don't have any elastic at the top to keep items from falling out.
