Developed by Snugpak® with input from members of the Police and military personnel, professional navigators and meteorological staff and the UK Search & Rescue Community. The new functional Snugpak® Venture Range has been created to support you on operations, whether you are completing urban search operations, tactical and dynamic entry, or need an identification layer when called upon for immediate actions. The Snugpak Tactical Windtop Smock has been created to support you in the face of adversity.

The Snugpak® Tactical Windtop is ideal for operations where the main environmental considerations are wind, when a single layer is sufficient to protect against the elements when wearing additional heavy equipment, such as Body Armour:

• Police Search Operations
• Military Operations
• Deliberate and Immediate Action
• Dynamic Entry
• TSG & ARV Operations
• OGA Operations, such as Coastguard or Immigration

The Snugpak® Tactical Windtop is designed to provide excellent protection against winds, as well as sunshine and light rain showers. The Tactical Windtop is much lighter than a normal jacket, using small YKK zips, and packing down to the size of an apple, ideal for when size and weight need to be kept to a minimum. It is ideally worn with a long sleeve base layer, such as the Snugpak 2nd Skinz Coolmax base layer to move moisture away from the skin, keeping you dry and regulating core temperature when completing deliberate and immediate search actions.

The Snugpak® Tactical Windtop is a single layer garment and uses Paratex Micro. The single-layer windtop is ideal for summer months and is light enough to be unnoticeable and worn all day; becoming a stalwart item of clothing for anyone involved in Tactical operations. 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 aftercare products, such as Nikwax and Grangers.

The Tactical Windtop 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 Tactical Windtop can also be worn over waterproof [PTFE] membrane hard shells in severe weather, allowing easy access to your essential equipment, such as radios, Plate Carriers and DE equipment. In dry, cooler conditions, the cut of the Tactical Windtop enables you to layer effectively with additional thinner insulation, or warmer fleece layers worn underneath so that core temperature can be effectively managed. In warmer months, it is light and cool enough to be worn to protect against UV rays, especially when at higher altitudes or summer alpine mountain walking. 

The Tactical Windtop can also be layered with the Softie® SV3 Vest, SJ3 and SJ6 Jackets for colder conditions or when searches are slower and more methodical, when insulation needs to be maintained. The Tactical Windtop allows essential equipment to be carried centrally, with easy access when wearing a day sack, Bergen or DE harness and maintains its core functionality with other equipment.

Hood 
For the entire Snugpak® Venture Range, the hood has been removed, allowing greater compatibility with other items of clothing, but the storage space remains. This allows you to roll up items such as a neck scarf, Buff®, fleece liner gloves or skull cap and store them close to hand.
 
Central Pocket 
The Venture Range includes a central map case pocket in the chest area, for the storage of a full size (Large) map case, such as the SILVA® Carry Dry Map Case (265x480mm), or an iPad® mini™ within a waterproof eCase® (185x238mm). The main pocket also incorporates two D-rings to secure essential items, such as a compass or whistle, to prevent accidental loss, as well as tethering other waterproof cases so that they do not need to be carried in an unsafe position around the neck.

There is also a large Outer-Pocket on the front of the central chest pocket, with a hook & loop security tab and a functional D-ring. This pocket can accommodate an A6 folded map, or a notebook and pen/pencil, or smartphones in a waterproof case, such as the iPhone 5S in the waterproof eCase® (105x175mm) as well as small digital cameras. In front of this is a smaller outer-pocket with hook & loop security tab, ideal for keeping your compass close to hand, or used for securing smaller energy gels, pens, pencils etc. when on the move.

The large outer pocket is compatible with an issue Magpul® Dynamics 30Rd eMag and the smaller outer pocket can accommodate a Glock® double-stacked 9mm magazine for fast and efficient tactical reloads, when additional equipment and plate carriers are not to hand.

Hook & Loop Patches
Throughout the Venture Range designs, there are various Hook & Loop Patches, designed to accommodate APALS® Personal Identification (PID) LEDs, or 3M Scotchlite™ Reflective Tabs to make you more visible in low-light conditions. Small APALS® patches are located on the back of the collar, as well as the left sleeve. There is also a larger soft Hook & Loop patch on the Right arm, for ID’s, Morale Patches as well as Group and Organisation Patches, allowing you to personalise your Venture Smock. Soft Hook & Loop is also available on the front of the small outer-pouch, for either an APALS® LED or reflective marker.
