Leo Köhler isn’t exactly the new kid on the block. The company was founded in 1927, in Poppenhausen, Germany and has been manufacturing clothing and uniforms for professionals, including German military ever since, meeting the strict requirements associated with such production. Suffice to say, the company has extensive experience and the name is associated with strong reliability and credibility.

The features of the Leo Köhler KSK Smock are as follows:

  • 50/50 cotton & polyamid fabric
  • 2-way sturdy, quality zipper with wind flap secured by buttons
  • “Canadian” military slotted buttons big enough to be usable even with gloves on

  • Velcro attachments for patches on chest and left-side sleeve
  • Long 2-way ventilation in the armpits
  • Bendable wire inside the front of the hood
