Testing Out The 5.11 Tactical Thermees Insulator Jacket
I mentioned with my review of Sitka Gear that I’m so picky when it comes to my clothes. Finding the perfect jacket sometimes takes me forever! Recently I had the opportunity to test out the 5.11 Tactical Thermees Insulator Jacket and this jacket pleasantly surprised me!
Light and Warm
When I first received the jacket I was surprised at the thickness of the jacket. It was thinner than I thought it would be but still kept me warm! The quilt design looks great on the jacket, and really allows for the jacket to be warm, but you don’t overheat.
I really like with this jacket that I’m going to be able to wear it throughout the day. Some jackets are way too warm, and you are constantly taking it off and on. The breathability of this jacket keeps you super comfy. Perfect for those afternoon weekend hikes!
So Many Pockets!
As a photographer I’m always looking for places to secure my gear, especially if I’m taking photos on the go. Nothing is worse than loosing your favorite lens cap because your pocket was not secure! The 5.11 Tactical Thermees Insulator Jacket has 3 pockets including a concealed pocket. The pockets lay nice and flat, and don’t add any extra bulk to the jacket, keeping the jacket looking nice and stylish!
The Perfect Hood and More!
Not only does the jacket fit your body very nicely, one of my favorites parts is the nice and snug hood. No worrying about tie strings or the hood falling off. I was able to pull the hood up nicely over my ponytail, and the hood did not budge, protecting my ears from the cold, Northeast Ohio wind!
Speaking of the perfect fit, the band at the bottom of the jacket is such a nice touch! It keeps your jacket from moving up and down. This is great for someone who likes to move around a lot when taking photos!
Overall a Great Jacket!
For this review, I really put the jacket to the test. I wore it hiking, to the store, on the farm, and even on a photoshoot. I could not find anything I didn’t like about this jacket. If you are looking for jacket that keeps your warm, but is light and looks great, check out the 5.11 Tactical Thermees Insulator Jacket, you won’t be disappointed!
