TRU-SPEC H2O Proof ECWCS Gen-2 Parka & Pants

To make this easy (on me), Let me go ahead and list out the features as Tru-Spec details them on their website, and then will discuss how the "system" performed and how some of the features come in handy.

The system performed as it should. When I came in out of all that rain (and it really down-poured for part of that walk/march), I was dry except for my hands and feet. My boots were not waterproof (stupid me) and, well... there's just not much you can do to keep your hands dry if you have to work with them.

For the first half-hour / first mile of the walk/march, wearing the waterproof outer garments felt odd. After that I'd gotten used to them and they didn't bother me. When I took everything off and realized that I was dry as described, I really appreciated how well the system had worked.

I encourage you to check them out online at

Stay safe!
