GEN III ECWCS – Extended Cold Weather Clothing System (ECWCS)
GEN III ECWCS Changes the Way the American Soldier Operates – in Any Environment.
Whether training at home or abroad, or operating in theater, our nation’s warfighters are exposed to a broad spectrum of extreme environmental conditions.
GEN III ECWCS is a radical re-design of previous generation ECWCS for the U.S. Army. No longer just a Cold Weather Clothing System, the third generation ECWCS has been transformed into an Extended Climate Warfigher Clothing System that enhances soldier survivability across broad climate ranges.
The complete system features seven levels of protection to provide the broadest range of defense from unpredictable environmental conditions. Technically advanced proprietary materials and construction combine with cutting edge garment design to allow the soldier to train, operate and sustain combat operations in a broad climate range, extending their ability to take the fight to the enemy – anywhere!
