We have seen SORD introduce some great military outerwear including their popular SORD Smock and more recently the Light Field Anorak. They are now branching out into warmer garments with the insulated Mountain and Cold Weather Operations (MACWO) Jacket. Two versions are available including a 80 grams per square meter single layer model and a double layer option for extreme cold.

The MACWO jacket is stuffed with Prima-Loft and utilizes Duro Industries' Epsilon MultiCam Ripstop fabric, featuring a water resistant Schoellor NanoSphere finish for the outer shell. The jacket features a large insulated removable hood with adjustable drawstring, large hand warmer pockets with inverted zips for comfort, and a full large zip closure. A storm flap is secured with Velcro Tabs over the closure for added protection and the adjustable wrist cuffs are kept close to the wrist with elastic. Integrated wrist loops can be utilized to secure your gloves.

MACWO Removable Adjustable Hood

The jackets have been tested in temperatures down to -13 degrees Fahrenheit and hold their warmth well. Two concealed pockets inside the jacket can keep any gear protected from the elements. An elastic cord at the base of the jacket can be pulled tight to keep out snow and rain. The MACWO can also be compressed down for easier storage in a pack when not in use. SORD is always big on detail with a laundry list of specs. A Coyote version is also available as an alternative to MultiCam (OCP), utilizing the water resistant and breathable EPIC by Nextec shell fabric as used in Gen III ECWCS and the SOF PCU. We look forward to taking out the MACWO in the nether regions for some good cold weather testing.
