OTTE Gear – MultiCam GP Tote, Overwatch Anorak And Patrol Parka Review
From its very roots, this company has been focused on one thing: producing the very best gear for the US combat soldier.
For this reason, Otte Gear makes some seriously high-quality kit.
Materials to build quality, everything is top notch. This drive for the best can be traced back to the needs of the soldier but now extends far beyond combat. If you are a backpacker, skier, or outdoorsman in general, Otte Gear has something to offer.
Whether you have a need in cold or warm climates, look no further. Travel or general use gear? No problem. Otte makes some of the best jackets, pants, parkas, trousers, windshirts or anoraks out there.
New patterns of Camo are being added to their webpage with descriptions of their development and ideal environment. The most recent at the time of this writing is the Warrior Assault Pattern // WASP-FG (A-TACS FG), which OG offered a small run of. It’s refreshing to see companies bring forth innovative and new approaches to a diverse range of applications.
If ever there was a positive indication of a company’s direction, it would lie in the fact that OG is aligned with producers of the most advanced modern fabrics and components. These relationships bring cutting edge features such as antimicrobial, moisture wicking, odor control, flex, and stretch capabilities together with the best design.
In need of the best wear for the worst conditions? Otte Gear is that solution. Also, check out below for a write up of personal field experience with Otte Gear.

MultiCam OTTE Gear GP Tote Review
If you are looking for an all-in-one tote that you can bring and use anywhere you go, the GP Tote is the answer. It is designed for anyone who needs a trusty tote where they can carry items they have purchased from the grocery store. If you have a field exercise to go to, take this bag with you, along with your essentials.
The GP Tote is big and sturdy with lots of space indeed. If you have just gone from the gym and you need a bag where you can put your sweaty clothes, this product is right for you. If you have just gone through tough training, be sure to have this tote by your side. It is designed in such a way that your grimy or wet gear and clothes can fit without damaging the tote.
Put your ammo, boots, jackets, or any piece of equipment you have inside the GP Tote so you do not have to carry those items by hand. It also provides certain features, such as a loop patch so you can personalize it based on how you would like to use it.
GP Tote is made with 500 denier (500D) Cordura, which means that you get one of the best types of fabrics on the market today. As you may already know, Cordura is durable and can fight certain damages, including abrasions and punctures. The 500D gives the tote the right weave so it stays manageable rigidity but without extra weight.
When carrying heavy items, the padded handle will protect your hand, particularly your palm from injury. Plus, it has a storage pocket with a zipper so anything you put in there will remain secure. Most importantly, the GP Tote has a reinforced bottom, so you can count on it to never surrender even with your hefty gear inside.
MultiCam OTTE Gear Patrol Parka Review
There is so much to love about the Patrol Parka from Otte Gear.
First, it has a number of great designs to choose from with colors ranging from Ranger Green to Flint to MultiCam to Earth. Sizes start from small and go up to XXXL so it can fit virtually anyone on the planet.
It is a lightweight parka that has a hard shell style, making it the ideal outerwear for operators. If you spend a lot of time in the field and the weather conditions can be quite tough for you, this parka should be in your collection.
As a dedicated operator, you may have to face critical missions from time to time. Therefore, you require extreme protection, particularly during tough weather conditions. While you want to be protected from the cold, you also do not want your outfit to get in the way of your performance. You need a durable piece of clothing that will provide the protection you need without being heavy.
The Patrol Parka uses YKK waterproof zippers, along with a hood that has high mobility. The pit zippers are there for better efficiency. They help prevent overheating, as well as moisture buildup, which can take place internally. As for the hood, you can simply pack it in your collar and you can choose from the two adjustments. If you have a helmet that you have to wear during your operations, you can still wear the hood under it.
The parka consists of two low-profile sleeve pockets that are high in volume, which you can still access even if you are wearing body armor. The sleeve pockets are looped on while the two chest pockets are deep enough to give you ample storage. They are situated on top of the belt line, which makes them ideally positioned, particularly if you have a rucksack.
Multicam OTTE Gear Overwatch Anorak Review
There is nothing better to pair your ghillie suit than with the Overwatch Anorak. In fact, it is exactly what this product is about. However, it is full of features that enhanced the classic British design. With this soft shell-styled suit, marksmen can keep themselves concealed with its Multicam color. Even though the weather may not be ideal for the job, the Overwatch Anorak from Otte Gear will keep the wearer protected.
For you to do your work efficiently, you know how crucial it is to keep yourself out of sight. The perfect look and style of the Overwatch allow you to hide comfortably no matter what the weather conditions may be.
The Overwatch Anorak is not known to be feature-rich without a reason. First, despite its size and thickness, it can easily be packed and you do not have to worry about it taking a lot of space in your rucksack. It has an oversized hood that is large enough to accommodate your helmet. Its sleeves can be looped so you can attach your patches or ID.
The hood comes with elastic webbing, which you will also find on the shoulders and the upper back of this outerwear. There is a zip pocket that you can find right on the forearm of the piece where you can place a plastic card sleeve measuring 4” x 6”. If that is not enough, you can reach out to the sleeve where there is a large pocket that you can use as well.
The features do not end here because the Overwatch also has a thumb loop, which allows the jacket sleeve to stay in place. It is a common problem with this type of clothing, particularly with the sleeves riding up. As for the cuffs, you will like the fact that they hook and loop fasteners.
