Sergeant Giafes,

 

First, thank you for the opportunity to test the  Windstopper GORTEX Forum

jacket as a daily piece of uniform.

 

During my evaluation period, covering approximately 10 weeks; I have had the

opportunity to wear the garment in snow, wind and rain, all in a variety of

temperatures ranging from sub-zero to the 70's. I find the garment

exceptionally comfortable  and wearable in all conditions regardless of the

elements or temperature. Body temperatures seem to regulate accordingly when

going from inside to outside and when wearing the garment from sub-zero to

warm climates making it an ideal All-Season garment.

 

Adjustments I would recommend would include..

 

1)       lining all pockets on both sides with the fleece like material

instead of just one side

 

2)      Potentially making one of the exterior breast pockets an interior

breast pocket

 

3)      Using smaller/thinner eyelets on the badge tab; currently for usage

it was necessary to bend the securing pin slightly to make it fit.

 

I would recommend this garment for professional by the agency and if

available within the private sector, I would purchase one for my personal

use.

 

 

Professionally,

Lawrence W. Waldridge Jr.
