Located on top of the chest pockets there are small pockets for the jackets accessories; fire-starters, whistle, compass and led-light. In the waist- and bottom channel there is fire-cord to assist you when using the fire-starters to ignite a fire. The jackets collar houses a tarp to shelter you from harsh weather conditions. The inner lining has a contrasting orange color for signalling if in emergency. On the shoulders there is Velcro to attach patches.
