Personal Protection Starts With A Good Outer Layer Like This Rothco Soft Shell Jacket
As human beings in any critical emergency situation we have 5 Basic needs that could need to be addressed in order for us to survive the situation.
- Personal Protection (Clothing, Shelter, Fire, Self Defense)
- Medical & Health (First Aid)
- Sustenance (Food and Water)
- Signaling and Recovery
- Navigation & Travel
The outerwear we choose is the first line of defense against the elements and is the one item that does the most to keep you from getting wet and succumbing to hypothermia. The Rothco Covert Ops Light Weight Soft Shell Jacket is a great three season jacket. I have been wearing it for a couple months now and have really enjoyed it.
A few of the things that I like most about it are that it is lightweight and flexible, not bulky at all. It is also long enough for outside the waist band concealed carry. It is also waterproof and keeps the wind from cutting through on cold days. I would estimate that you can comfortably wear this jacket in the spring, fall and early winter.
If I were going to make any changes to the Rothco Covert Ops Light WEight Soft Shell Jacket, I might add an interior and breast pocket and perhaps a drawstring at the waist. But other than that, I like it a lot. I am actually considering picking another one up in Coyote Tan. Take a look at the video below to see my review of this Rothco Jacket.
