I bought this jacket because, yes, I'm in the military. I wanted something that I could get on base with, but could be put away once I leave the gate. This jacket does that very well. I have the black one, and when the orange reflector vest is in the pocket on the back, you can't tell. The vest pulls out and clips to the loops on the chest. Very simple. Works great. You do need to take jacket on/off to set up. But it takes 1 min. Comes with Joe rocket liner. Full sleeve, and stays in place, and isn't a funky plastic feel.It is excellent, and, if you know you're going late (or early!) You can carry the liner in the back vest pocket.
