Designed for the airborne solider, The Keela Parachutist has been developed & designed by the 

2nd Battalion the Parachute Regiment in conjunction with Odin Systems & Keela International to be a multi-use smock providing the wearer with the necessary garment for all theaters that he may find himself in when dropped with limited space and weight available

Using the same unique Dual System Protection as our standard SF jacket, it is the only outer jacket that provides complete protection from the elements, while the double membrane is able to manage inner condensation creating an improved wearer comfort environment no matter what Mother Nature throws at you.

The jacket is packed with additional features required for the airborne solider, while also being able to provide a weatherproof outer jacket as well as a piece of warm kit as space is limited on the drop

Problem: The Airborne Solider when jumping into war has limited space and even limited weight, with re-supply being only ammunition, batteries and rations for the foreseeable future the paratrooper has limited space to be able to pack and carry his own personnel kit. There was an operational need for a duel smock that the soldier can use as his standard smock, a weatherproof outer layer and piece of warm kit

Solution: – The Keela Parachutist – 3 solutions in 1 Smock
