The Sentinel Anorak isn't the only really cool combat/tactical jacket Otte Gear had on-hand at SHOT Show 2013. They also had a pretty badass cool-weather/cold-weather jacket called the Otte Gear Helo Jacket, which is a lightweight, collapsible and reversable synthetic-fill insulated jacket that can be collapsed, rolled up and stored inside a cargo pocket for easy packing and transport.

The OG Helo Jacket's fabric is breathable, and its synthetic insulation material is Primaloft Sport, which helps the jacket achieve it's light weight and comfort. This is one very comfortable jacket.

It's also oversized to be able to fit easily over the operator's/wearer's tactical armor plate carrier (body armor), mag carriers/pouches, etc. Theoretically, an operator/end-user wearing a plate carrier with an OG Sentinel Anorak over it could just unpack and don the OG Helo Jacket over both when the weather gets chilly.

The Helo Jacket sports a hood and is reversable with two color-scheme choices: MultiCam-Tan and Ranger-Green-Tan.

The jacket's fabric is IR-compliant (infrared-compliant) and fire-resistant.

The following information on the Helo Jacket comes directly from the Otte Gear website:


– Can pack down into your cargo pocket
– Loop on sleeves for I.D.
– Hook/loop wrist closure
– Two large handwarmer pockets on both sides of jacket
– Hem drawcord seals out wind and debris


– Over-sized to fit over equipment (order one size smaller than usual for casual fit)
– Reversible in Multicam/Tan and Ranger Green/Tan with all features on both sides
– 60 gram lightweight PrimaLoft® insulation keeps you toasty even when wet
– Deep hood accommodates helmet
– Nylon fabric breathes and sheds wind and light rain
– Fabric is IR-compliant and functions as a fire-retardant shell


Created to fit over your 2nd-line kit, the lightweight and reversible Helo helps take the chill off during infil/exfil flights or when the mission goes into overtime."
