Gorka 3 M - New BARS copmany mountain storm suit for everyday field wear.
A modernized modification of the Gorka-3 storm mountain suit, developed for the conditions of everyday field wear during the demi-season.
Having absorbed all the best from the Gorka 3 suit - the prototype, this modification is characterized by some improved performance. So the upper layers of the shoulder area and the middle part of the hood, in addition to the typical reinforcing pads, are made of a raincoat blended fabric, which increases the resistance of these areas to getting wet. And the absence of a shoulder seam excludes leakage along the seam in this area.
For sewing the Gorka-3M suit, BARS used a vat-dyed fabric with oil-water-repellent impregnation.
The jacket closes with a zipper and is additionally fixed with buttons.
The jacket has additional chest pockets with a zipper, which is closed with a strap to protect it from moisture.
The shape of the pockets has been changed on the sleeves, the flaps on the pockets, and also supplemented with Velcro. An additional zippered pocket for small items has been added on the left sleeve.
Pants got a high belt on the back.
The type of fastening on the trousers has been changed from buttons to zippers with additional fixation on the belt to the button.
All pockets have been changed for ease of use.
The side pockets have been re-shaped to prevent the contents from falling out. Additionally, a button is made in the pockets for dividing it into two parts.
Velcro flap closure on back pockets.
The side cargo pockets have been re-shaped. They became more close to the leg, but did not lose their functionality.
The system of fixing the trousers in the ankle boots has been modified, which eliminates their picking up and chafing when walking.
The Gorka-3M suit includes:
Suspenders (suspenders are put in a jacket or trouser pocket when shipped).
Will they be available in larger sizes aswell?
Yes, a bit later
I did the mistake of taking it a size too big, but It's still a really nice suit of what seems like good quality.
Delivered to France 18 days after order, really fast shipping.
I'll just need to see how the suit stays together after a few months of wearing it.
What colour does this come in?
Gorka 3m is available only in the classic olive-brown pattern as pictured.
See Gorka 3 - it is available in varios camo patterns
Made of a nice heavy canvas like material, looks sharp, and is easily able to fit my heavy leather jacket under it. Really looking forward to getting to use this during the winter.
Just be aware, mine came looking more coyote brown rather than OD green like the pictures. I don't mind it in the slightest, since overall it's a pretty good suit.
