The Snugpak® MML Softie® Smocks are ideal for a diverse range of operational environments, all year round, where the main environmental considerations are wind and cold weather, when thinner layers are insufficient to protect against the elements:
• HM Forces
• Reserve Forces
• Combined Cadet Forces
• Range Training Days
• Deployed Military Operations
The Snugpak® MML Softie® Smock is a tri-layer garment and uses both Paratex Micro as a face fabric, and an internal Softie® Premier fill, encapsulated with a Paratex Light lining. Designed to provide excellent thermal protection against the cold, as well as high protection against wind.
• MML3 (Softie® 3) 0℃ to -5℃
The MML Softie® Smock is lighter than normal expedition style jackets, and uses water resistant YKK zips, making it ideal for when size and weight need to be kept to an absolute minimum. It is ideally worn with a variety of base layers, such as a base layer, or issued UBACS, to move moisture away from the skin, keeping you dry and regulating core temperature in extremes of cold.
The quick drying, Paratex Micro 100% nylon material has a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish. Water repellency can be maintained with a cool tumble dry after washing and periodic re-treatment with suitable after care products, such as Nikwax and Grangers. The MML Softie® Smock will keep you dry in a short, light shower, giving you time to find a safe place to stop and put on more effective (hardshell) waterproof layers, if required. The MML Softie® Smock can also be worn under waterproof [PTFE] membrane hard shells in severe weather, still allowing easy access to your essential equipment.
In dry, colder conditions, the cut of the MML Smock enables you to layer effectively with additional thinner insulation, or warmer layers worn underneath so that core temperature can be effectively managed. In warmer months, the Softie 3 weight is light enough to be worn when static for long periods, such as on ranges, etc.
The MML Softie® Smock allows essential equipment to be carried centrally, with easy access when wearing a day sack, Bergen or climbing harness, as well as plate carriers and webbing systems and maintains its core functionality with other operational equipment, such as body armour.
