Thanks to the brand 'Climate Control System' we can regulate the entry and exit of air inside the jacket. This allows you to wear this jacket in summer days even being a winter jacket.

In the chest area there're also compartments designed to incorporate Bionic Chest protections. Both Level 2 guards do not come standard with the jacket, but are an important safety element to consider.
