    I have been testing the U.S. Army Elements Jacket & Pants. as shown below.

    Not a new product but one that does what it says it will do.
    Water Proof, Wind Proof and tough as nails along with being highly fire resistant at 90% Nomex.

    The older Camo Style is easy to came by and inexpensive.
    Another style is the Massif Elements in Coyote Brown, more subtle for EDW and very expensive if purchased new.

    Basically the same product with some design changes in the Jackets.

    The pants have only minor changes between the two types. Both style pants have calf level cargo pockets since this style wear is for Mounted Troops that must spend hours in a vehicle and thigh pockets would not work as well for that group.

    The Caveat as noted below is the standard sized Mil Clothing and the Massif are about one size different. That being the Massif's ergonomic fit is smaller than you might expect.

    I always have a perfectly new Massif shirt at the ready. Spent many days wearing them in the desert, best fabric to wear under body armor.
