Redesigned for 2012, this third generation version of the now legendary Recon Jacket is Norrona's most durable and weather-protective shell jacket yet. Developed with the help of the Norwegian, Swedish and Danish Special Forces, the Recon range is truly at the top of its league as a waterproof, windproof and breathable outer shell.
Made using the latest 3-layer GORE-TEX Pro material, the Recon Jacket is ideal for use both in the UK and overseas, offering fantastic protection from wind, rain and snow. It comes highly recommended by Ray Mears and the Woodlore team after extensive use around the world, particularly in the Arctic wilderness where it has become our go-to jacket. The GORE-TEX membrane uses a woven liner to reduce weight and bulk, enhance moisture transport and minimise abrasion, all while maintaining durable waterproofness, making it the ultimate storm-protection fabric.
Designed for use in the areas of trekking, mountain hunting, forest hunting, expeditions, glacier walking, general outdoor pursuits and military use, the Recon Jacket is a truly versatile and heavy-duty outdoor jacket. Despite the excellent barrier it provides against the elements, the Recon Jacket is surprisingly lightweight, at just 740 g in size Large.
GORE-TEX performs at its best when it is cleaned and cared for regularly. Woodlore recommends Nikwax Tech Wash and Nikwax TX. Direct for care of this garment. While GORE-TEX is perfect for use in extreme outdoor conditions, it is not indestructible - care should always be taken around fires, thorns, brambles etc. More information on the properties of GORE-TEX clothing can be found in our Bushcraft Tips and Advice section.
