The US Army Generation III Level 6 Extreme Wet/Cold Weather Jacket is designed for use in moderate to cold and wet conditions as a hard shell layer combined with other base and insulating layers. This shell layer is designed to be worn as a waterproof barrier over other levels in conditions that alternate between freezing and thawing. It is constructed with two-layer Gore-Tex and seam-sealed throughout. The jacket provides an outstanding light-weight, completely waterproof, windproof and breathable level of protection against the elements with 50% less bulk than previous systems. You will not believe how light weight it is compared to the ECWCS Generation I and II Gore-Tex®. Level 6 also incorporates NIR* (near infrared signature reduction) technology further enhancing soldier survivability.
What is Near Infrared Textile Technology (NIR)? Used by the U.S. Department of Defense to prevent detection by NIR Image Converters. These photocathode devices do not detect temperatures, but rather infrared radiation variances. NIR-compliant uniforms use a special fabric that allows soldiers to appear at the same radiation level as the surrounding terrain, thus making them more difficult to detaect. NIR technology also make uniforms less visible in low-light environments by reducing the reflection of light.
