    So I was buying some stuff for a costume (reno 911 costume for halloween), and I stumbled across this site. It's a uniform site. I ordered a shirt and thisjacket. The jacket has a removable Thinsulate liner which takes it from a great winter jacket to a thin windbreaker. You could seriously wear this year-round. Now I don't think it's ok to try to look like a cop, but I think that this jacket, if you wear it like a regular jacket, is just fine. Water just beads up and rolls right off of it, which is great when I wore it in the rain.

    And the best part: There's a side-zip on each side, so you can expose your holster. I don't know if I really want to OC in the winter, but now I have the option! Besides, the jacket is not only comfortable, it's only 24.99! They seem to have a couple other colors, too.



    Worn casually, I think it looks fine and doesn't throw out a mall ninja/wanna-be cop vibe. Anyway, what do you guys think? Good option for all-weather OC?

    Nice jacket, great price, good little site, and nice to have a way to OC during times I'd normally CC because I have no other option.

    Thanks for the post, A.

    Looks good. And if it comes in other colors, it would make a complementary addition to this wardrobe:




    Add a muffler, some full-finger gloves....maybe a fashionable turse (for a BUG) and you can be ready for cold weather duty!

    :P

    I still like my 5.11 tactical parka, conceal holster is part of the jacket, and for when i make the leap it has the big zips on the sides. plus it's really warm, and one time while washing it i left a sub shop stamp card in one of the pockets.... didn't get wet

    You had better be careful HankT, they might think you are serious.

    It's alright, I wore my eye protection on the top of my head today after going to my car to grab my other magazines. Took a few magazines before I realized it.
