I ordered this MilTec jacket because the Helikon ECWCS in Olive colour have been out of stock for some time and the EU division of Helikon told me there would be no more available until July or August (it's currently May). I need a new jacket before then as I am off to the Scottish highlands soon.

On paper the Helikon is better (more waterproof by HH measurement, and more breathable) and I have no idea as to how that works out in real life because I don't have the more expensive Helikon equivalent!

What I can say is the quality of this jacket far surpasses what I expected for the price. As such, it's excellent value.

The Helikon doesn't come with a fleece, but this MilTec did. It's a good quality and very warm and comfortable fleece too - but wearing it on it's own makes me want to say "Geet orf moy land!!!". This MilTec is very waterproof in practice. I cannot imagine it leaking unless swimming in it.

The fleece fits in nicely to the jacket by internal zips on each side and some very resilient poppers in the sleeves and around the neck area.

I have a large chest (about 48") so ordered the XL and this is probably a little too big.

It is warm, even without the fleece. It has map pockets in the jacket lining like the Helikon and this was a big reason for me wanting the Helikon in the first place. Easy access to a waterproof OS map in all weather condition without opening a backpack in a downpour is necessary for my highland treks.

My only quibbles are the Helikon appears to have bigger and better front pockets with a top-opening, whereas these are angled and therefore hold less. They are not really pockets in the jacket itself but pass-through to the fleece pockets, or whatever you are wearing underneath.

Love this coat. Originally I ordered this in black. Unfortunately, when it arrived I could have got someone else in there with me too and I had to return it to the seller (at my own cost = £8.36) and order the next size down. Even then, there is plenty of room in the coat. So beware.

The coat itself is great. Best I've had. I wear it on my motorbike and it's warmer than my leather and very good at keeping the wind out too.
It's also good in the rain, although it hasn't been in torrential rain for any length of time yet, I am confident it will cope.
It has a good high collar against the wind and an adequate hood too.
There are plenty of pockets, I have never run out of space yet. I have found the poacher pockets to be the most useful, but it's sometimes difficult to find a small thing in amongst the masses of stuff you can get in there, so be organized.

I have had to stand out in all weathers watching my little boy play rugby, it gets bloody cold on the sidelines for 2 hours at a time. This coat has kept me warm through it all and keeps out the biting wind (wish I'd had it at the beginning of the year).
The fleece (detachable) is very effective, but not very pretty to wear on it's own. But that's OK 'cos I bought this to do everything at once.
All in all, I know I can grab my bug out bag, put on my coat and be pretty much able to go anywhere and tackle anything. So job done.

This coat is very warm and can withstand the worst weather possible, the fleece inside can be removed and worn on its own, very good quality.

Very good jackets, loads of pockets and very warm. Bought for a trip to the Artic. Jacket a bit heavy but otherwise great.

Jacket is excellent both in quality and value. However I ordered the size down from usual (as feedback indicated the sizing was generous) and, as a result, the jacket is a snug fit - I will re-order using the size guide above in my usual large .
