Arktis Black Smock




The B310 is the archetypal, staple, and still underated, Waterproof Smock. Back in the 80’s we pioneered applying a waterproof finish to Ripstop Poly-cotton, we then added a waterproof ‘Drop-liner’ to the inside, to prevent any moisture getting to the wearer. The fabric now battle proven is still used by many specialists globally today. The cloth with its mixture of durability and breathability, combined with a great waterproof finish, still cant be beat. As testament to this it is not uncommon for Smocks over 20 years old to come back to the U.K. factory for reproofing or repairs.


Combat Smock. Arktis’s rugged basic, the Combat Smock is exactly the same as the Waterproof Smock except it lacks the Drop-liner. This means it is lighter weight and is a ‘stripped down’ version of the B310. Ideal for high exertion use in extremely hot climates.


The classic northern hemisphere windproof smock. The interior of the garment is lined with nylon mini rip rather than drop liner (as appears within the B310).
