With winter in full swing, battling the elements while on-scene becomes an ever-present challenge for emergency medical professionals. But don’t worry; Elbeco’s got you covered: As a reliable provider of quality products that easily exceed the expectations and enhance both the performance and experience of their customers, Elbeco’s new Shield Color Block Soft-Shell Jacket is fully equipped and capable of keeping you dry, warm, agile, and protected. Here’s how:
As part of Elbeco’s stretch, micro-fleece soft-shells in color-block styles, the Shield Color Block Soft-Shell Jacket is designed to be worn as a stand-alone outer garment or as a mid-layer liner combined with their Shield Duty or HiVis shells to provide three-in-one, seasonality protection. The jacket features a two-way, full-length Vislon zipper, so you can easily zip up and be protected at a moment’s notice. The Elbeco Shield Color Block Soft-Shell Jacket’s abrasion-resistant chin protector serves as a durable barrier against inclement-weather conditions.
Need to store all your essential gear for quick access when needed? Rely on the Elbeco Shield Color Block Soft-Shell Jacket’s six functional, pocket-storage options, including large, lower-dual-entry pockets with fleece-lined, hand-warmer pockets with zipper closures and a “D” ring in the right pocket, plus dual, large, internal-patch pockets with zipper closures and communications-access openings. You can ensure that you’ll be seen while wearing it, even with little-to-no light on-scene thanks to the jacket’s heat-sealed, 3M-patterned, hi-vis reflective striping.
Along with the Elbeco Shield Color Block Soft-Shell Jacket’s ample levels of protection, you can still enjoy top levels of comfort thanks to its fleece-lined body and collar. Its versatility is unrivaled: Utilize the jacket’s stealth loop (located at the cuffs), which allows attachment into multiple, outer-shell options. Additionally, an optional badge tab, mic loop, and name tape are included. Some other specs include:
- “quick release” size-zipper vents with stability tabs with adjustable snaps
- tricot-lined sleeves
- low-profile, utility-shoulder snaps
- HiVis jacket is ANSI 107-2010 Class 2, Level 2 Certified
- the jacket is available in a number of sizes, ranging from X-Small to 4X-Large
- the jacket is available in two color options: hi-viz yellow with red trim and red/navy
