Russian Army VKPO (VKBO) Layer 5 Demi-Season Suit EMR (Digital Flora)
This is the 5th layer of the VKPO all season 8 layer clothing system, which is standard issue to the modern Russian military. This layer serves as a "shell" layer and keeps the insulation layers underneath from getting wet and dries quickly. It also breaks the wind and protects the heat trapped by the underlying ventilation layers. This layer is highly water resistant but not completely waterproof. This is intentional. It is made to be both water resistant and highly breathable, lightweight and compact. Choose your layers carefully and you can survive any weather you encounter whether hunting, fishing, camping, or working in your own backyard.
This layer consists of a jacket and pants
-Hood with drawstring closure
-2 way zipper with chin protection and Velcro closure flap
-2 breast slit pockets with zipper closure
-2 breast Velcro strips
-2 upper arm pockets with Velcro for closure and patches
-Zipper controlled ventilation flaps under the armpits to either trap in heat or allow sweat to evaporate depending on the conditions.
- The elbow area is reinforced with a lining of high-strength fabric type called Cordura 350D.
-Snap closure with zipper fly
-4 belt loops, loops fit 7.5 cm belt
-Elastic at the back of waistband
- Removable suspenders
-Side slant pockets
-Side thigh pockets with drawstring closure and Velcro flaps
-Knees and seat are reinforced with high-strength fabric called Cordura 350D.
-The top and bottom of the side seams contain zip closures for easy removal of pants and provide free access to shoes.
-The bottom of the pants is adjustable with elastic and snap closures.

Solid, well built, and a very cool piece of authentic Russian military gear. Great pattern, and versatile.
The suit is wicked comfortable and with the layer 3 fleece, extremely warm! I haven't had a chance to try it in the field yet, but just wearing the jacket and fleece out and about, I can't say enough good about it!!
I will update it when I get the chance to try the full suit in the woods!
Almost perfect size, good at resisting the cold breeze, and it didn't tear or anything while scraping against logs and other obstacles in the forest. I also had no problem walking through fields of thorns as the material didn't let them through. I would definitely recommend! The customer service is also very helpful, thanks Tyler!
