Cougar® is an urban light outer (softshell) garment. The fabric used protects from wind and light rain. Collar-stowable hood is easily adjustable via pocket-accessible drawstring and rear tab. The hood is quickly accessible, with hood pocket zippered with a two-way zipper. The jacket has three concealed ID panels, suitable for law enforcement stake-out jobs: two smaller front ones and one larger on the back. Two Velcro-attached blank ID panels are enclosed for the user to embroider or print suitable identification. Breast pockets have small organizers and D-rings for lanyards, upper-sleeve pockets have wiring eyelets. There’s a fairly large velcro-closed inner pocket at lower left.
Quick Side Access™ (QSA™) system allows easy access to belt-mounted tactical items. Due to QSA™ ergonomic features the user gains access to belt-mounted e.g. holster in one fluid movement, to cut down reaction time in an emergency, life-threatening situation. Casual outlook and proper placement of the QSA™ zippered slots would facilitate urban law enforcement operations.
