Agilite Unveils Latest Version of Its IDF Soft-Shell Jacket


Agilite will soon offer its Battle Element soft-shell jacket in Ranger Green.

“The Battle Element is engineered to keep out wind, cold and moisture whilst maintaining an inordinate level of flexibility, breathability and durability,” according to Agilite officials. Developed together with “Israel Defense Forces and Israeli Navy operators, it was designed with the needs of special operations and extreme outdoor professionals in mind.”

It’s made of a tight-woven polyester with exterior breathable, waterproof membrane. Special features of the Battle Element include the Agilite "Half-glove" that covers half the hand and helps bridge the transition area from jacket sleeve to glove. The Half-glove can also be folded inwards to form a regular sleeve if required.

There is also a low profile hood hidden under the collar to provide added rain and wind protection and yet is completely inconspicuous when not in use.

The inside of the Battle Element is Agilite premium grade Micro-Fleece for warmth and it also features twin under-arm vents for heat release after exertion.

“The Battle Element is incredibly comfortable and despite the external wind-blocking membrane. It’s ultra-lightweight and even stretches to allow for full arm and back manipulation," Agilite officials maintain.

It is also has a high waist cut in order to allow for full freedom of movement of the hips and abdomen. The lower waist size is adjustable with internal quick-closure stoppers.

The Ranger Green version is coming soon. It will be available in both an IDF version with shoulder epaulets as well as an international version without.

The black version is on sale now for $159.95, down from $199.95.
