Russian Cold Camo
Russian Army VKPO (VKBO) Layer 6 Water Proof and Wind Proof Suit EMR (Digital Flora)
This is the sixth layer of the VKPO all season clothing system, which is standard issue to the modern Russian military.
This layer consists of a waterproof and windproof jacket and pant set.
This layer is waterproof and windproof. It is most comparable to a wearable fitted poncho and is made of 100% polyamide. It is a shell layer used in heavy rain or snow, when preventing water from entering the suit is deemed more important than sweat evaporation from the the body. Since this is waterproof instead of water resistant, it is not highly breathable. This trade off is apparent in the design of the layer. All zippers are covered with a membrane flab to increase water resistance at the point of the zipper. The hood is oversized in the front to prevent water from hitting the user's face when the user is looking directly forward. The suit does not have pockets. Instead, where the pockets would normally be located, the zippers allow access to the pockets of underlayers. This allows the wearer to easily remove and add this layer without having to move their items from one layer to the next.
Note: The material is waterproof but it does not seal around the entire body like a wetsuit and therefore does not prevent water from getting through creases such as where the pants meet the boots, the waistline, and the ends of the sleeves. Therefore, if the user intends to wade through a river or remain dry while submerged, we recommend a one-piece wetsuit.
We recommend testing the suit by blasting a water hose on it with a dry piece of clothing underneath. The clothing should remain dry and water should not seep through the grey-silver inner membrane.
