The Sabre Jacket is 5.11's take on a full featured highly weather resistant jacket. The creation is likely a response to the growing demand of high-end jackets. After a brief look-see, the general layout appears very response jacket like, but with numerous additions. Starting with the pockets, there are 2 classic side hand pockets with zipper openings. Flaps are sewn on top of the opening to help with item retention when zippers are open and weather protection. Both shoulders have zippered pockets with highly water resistant zippers. 3"x2" loop velcro areas are also on these pockets so you can mount your favorite cool guy patch. Both sides of the upper chest also have fancy weather resistant zippered pockets. The more central placement is easiest to use for most users, but will be covered by those who wear armor. On the inside of the jacket is a zippered pocket on the left and a velcro sealed pocket on the right. I guess they mix it up to give the user options on speed vs. security.
