The classic Avenger has quickly become Arktis' bestselling coat. Entrusted by many to brave the elements and perform in extreme circumstances, it is currently in service with Police forces all over the UK, including firearms and dog handling units. It has also been in action with the Royal Household and is continually being picked up by Security Forces around the world.
With practicality and comfort in mind, the Avenger was designed as a '3 in 1' system. The main coat is made of 50/50 Ripstop with a waterproof dropliner and taped seams. The outer coat can be worn by itself in warmer conditions. If the climate is colder, then the fleece jacket can be attached to the inside of the coat providing a complete dry and warm environment for the wearer. The fleece can also be worn by itself as a standalone jacket if the waterproof element is not required. With three configurations for different conditions, the Avenger continues to be a very versatile coat.
The jacket also contains drop down panels for police/ security badges to attach. These can be hidden for civilian and covert use. A total of twelve pockets feature on the Avenger, two of which are on the zip-in fleece and vary in size and use.
This Arktis jacket features:
Outer 50% Cotton 50% Polyester Ripstop
Waterproof 100% Polyester Dropliner with taped seams
Included zip-in fleece (100% Polyester)
‘3 in 1’ design, for optional layering
Roll away hood
Covert panels for optional badges
Arktis Police Avenger Story
"As the winters get wilder, colder and harsher, and the rain, relentless, the police came to us with an issue. The standard issue kit wasn’t cutting it anymore. A familiar story in our ever-shifting climate. Sometimes officers were being asked to stand in these horrendous conditions for up to 12 hours, cold, wet, and miserable. Arktis was put to task to come up with a solution.
The design had to work for the police, meeting all their demanding specifications, but also give comfort to the wearer, that they are equipped for anything. Fighting every day on the front-line, facing hazards in everyday life, it needed to inspire confidence and authority. With Arktis, quality is always guaranteed, and thus a feat of design and engineering marvel, The Avenger, was born.
The Avenger is the epitome of design and function, providing comfort and practicality to anyone who wears it. These days the Avenger has been recognised by the police forces in the UK and has now been deployed to the majority of these, who all sing its praises."
Great service, advice on fit and item Review by Sammy
Wanted to post a review for two reasons; firstly to praise the customer service I received from Carol who was very helpful and responsive to my emails. Secondly, to comment on the quality of the jacket which I purchased to replace a hand me down of the same jacket I was given by a Dog Handler many years ago. As with Arktis you get high quality, handmade and built to last for years. Finally with regards to the sizing I hope this will be helpful. I am 6ft, quite broad and athletic. I weigh 75-80kgs. I opted for the large and was a little concerned given the chest size is listed at 44+cm however however it is fine and fits just how you want you big winter overcoat to do so. You must remember how thick this is with the fleece inside and the fact you can also pull it in around the waist as necessary. Having seen colleagues in smaller sizes they look awful if not fitted properly; they ride up at the back and are short in the arm. Not what you want. Ultimately this will be you go to jacket in the colder months and the fit should be how you'd want an overcoat not slim and streamline. (Posted on 17/03/2021)
Excellent Review by Jake
Ordered the B135 jacket black and it was delivered the next day, worth the money very good quality not thin and cheap at all, it certainly has some weight to it. I'm about 5ft 9in and 80kg I was worried that a medium would be too big as many jackets do run larger but the medium is perfect doesn't run too low it runs to the bottom of my trouser pockets. I'd say what ever size you Normally wear in t-shirts is the size you should get for this. Very pleased cop shop has plenty in stock as the arktis website were sold out. Definitely worth the money very breathable yet extremely warm. (Posted on 14/10/2019)
The Avenger is a ‘3 in 1’ coat with a detachable fleece. Naturally when the fleece is removed the garment will feel bigger. It‘s important to know which configuration you will use most, and take this into account when ordering. If you plan to wear without the fleece, it may be wise to order a size down.
It’s always best to measure an existing garment to get an accurate size.
Note: Arktis garments are hand made by people not robots, please allow a 1.5cm tolerance to measurements.
