Made from a tightly woven cotton, the smock features a screen printed camouflage pattern called 'Disruptive Pattern Material' which has to be one of the most iconic British camo patterns to have ever been produced.

A drawstring is fitted to the hood which can be tightened with a plastic adjuster which is marked 'Fixlock 194' and a second drawstring is present along the bottom edge. A pen/chinagraph Pocket is located to the upper portion of the left sleeve.
