The Gamma Jacket is a full cut, full-length model with two-way zipper front and provision for zip-in liner (in combination w the Propper Echo F5474 Softshell Jacket). The jacket’s nylon shell fabric has a waterproof/breathable barrier throughout the body, sleeves, and collar, and is fully factory seam-sealed. The jacket is completely lined for a clean finish.
Exterior Shell Materials All jackets in the line except for the Echo Softshell and the Halo I Hi-Vis rain jacket, have a durable nylon shell that is coated with a Durable Water Repellency (DWR) finish. The DWR coating helps ensure the jackets have less water uptake and provide faster dry time. The DWR coating keeps the water from soaking into the face fabrics of the jacket. The exceptions to the Nylon shell fabric are the shells for the Echo Softshell and the Halo I Rain Jacket. The Echo Softshell has a 100% polyester stretch-woven face and lining with a 100% polyester fleece interior lining. The Halo I Rain Jacket outer shell (i.e. the Hi-Vis yellow fabric) is 100% polyester. This is also true for the hi-vis yellow side of the Halo II reversible jacket, which is also 100% polyester HALT (Highly Advanced Laminate Technology).
Barrier Layered Waterproof-Breathable Construction The Propper Defender HALT barrier achieves waterproof-breathable performance in two ways, depending on the jacket. Three of the jackets in the line have a three-layer laminate membrane system and three of the jackets have a two-layer system. The Bravo “Ike” Duty Jacket, the Halo I Hi-Vis Rain Jacket with Drop Tail and the Delta Drop Panels use a three-layer laminate system to achieve waterproof-breathable performance.
Three-layer Laminate Membrane System The 3-in-1 laminate membrane design uses a highly advanced laminate system to achieve waterproof, breathable performance. The three layers in the laminate membrane system consist of 1)The outside nylon shell (polyester shell for the Hi Vis); 2)Polyester Film laminate; 3)Nylon tricot backer knit.

Propper I.C.E.

Because this technology is engineered into the fabric itself, the wicking properties will never wash out like chemically modified fabrics. The Propper I.C.E. Performance Polo keeps you cool and dry even during intense activity while maintaining a professional appearance on or off duty.
In addition to the cutting edge wicking technology, the Propper I.C.E. Performance Polo also integrates exceptional styling and functional features such as hidden buttons located under the collar for a pro to casual look, mic clips on both shoulders and a sunglass clip under the front buttons, gusseted mesh underarms for increased ventilation and range of motion, a longer tail that keeps the shirt tucked in and a tagless label in the collar for comfort.
Made with 94% polyester and 6% spandex, the durable interlock design resists snagging, pilling and fading even after frequent washes maintaining a comfortable fit and professional appearance. A DuPont Teflon fabric protector repels spills and stains. Available in Black, Grey, LAPD Navy, Red and White in Mens sizes XS 5XL for an MSRP of $39.99.
