Arctic Leopard GORKA-3 Suit Fleece Khaki
Th Gorka-3 Fleece lined suit is designed for everyday wear in the colder spring or fall (referred to in Russia as the demi-season). It is popular among hunters, fishermen, and those who enjoy outdoor activities like camping or hiking.
This is the most famous iteration of Gorka. It was the state standard of the Soviet special forces (Spetsnaz) and is still used by the Russian special forces today. It is made in Russia by bAPC, which is the only authentic manufacturer of these suits.
-This suit is designed to be worn in outdoor environments to protect from rain, snow, and other elements.
-The use of mixed fabric in the upper layers of the shoulder area and the middle part of the hood increases the resistance of these areas to getting wet.
-The absence of shoulder seams eliminates leakage.
-The suit has a system of ties based on rubber-fabric tape on the sides of the jacket, on the sleeves, under the knees and at the bottom of the pants.
-The pocket flaps and sleeve Welt back pockets of the pants are triangular in shape to reduce reflection of the extreme corners of the pockets.
-The Gorka 3 suit combines camouflage overlays with the main tent fabric khaki (olive) and distorts the silhouette of a man at remote distances.
-Fleece lined jacket and pants
-Made of water resistant tent fabric
-Quiet and silent material
-The suit is made of 100% canvas (tent) fabric with fleece lining
-Jacket and pants are free cut for a better fit and to avoid "sailing" in the wind
-The pants have notches for optionally attaching suspenders. Please note that suspenders are not included.
-Bottom pant legs include ties for securing inside boots

Aside from being mistaken for a VDV paratrooper that drifted a little too far from the drop zone, its great!
I ordered a 5 height unsure if it would fit right since I'm 6'3 but another reviewer said this gorka was a bit longer. It's essentially the same length as the regular 6 height bars gorka so it worked out. Quality is great and superior to the unlined bars gorka. It's also quite warm and a different material than a typical gorka. More like a water repellent jacket material. The trade off is that it is a little more swoosh-y. Russian Cold Camo shipped quickly and I had the gorka for a winter backpacking trip. I very much appreciated that. I'll be back for gorkas in other colors when they're back in stock.
It’s an awesome suit, warm and tough. Customer service is awesome as well.
it is a different material than the summer gorka, but it is generally better quality than that of the non-fleece lined gorkas. gets to be pretty warm past 35 F degrees moving so definitely for 35 F or colder. it removes the need for a layer from the normal gorka. color is good, sizing is accurate to the chart, however being taller I am limited typically to the 6 instead of the 7 size which is serviceable for my height typically and the fleece gorka is longer than the normal gorka so that it fits perfect.
Customer service was outstanding and you can tell they care about their customers. This Gorka 3 fleece is extremely comfortable and true to size. I'll be purchasing more in the near future because of the customer service and the quality.
