Police Jackets FAQs

What kind of jackets to police officers wear?

A police officer spends a lot of their shift exposed to the elements whether it be warm and rainy or cold and windy. In order to stay focused, calm and comfortable while carrying all their duty gear, police officers need high quality technical outerwear. These jackets must be lightweight and breathable to keep them from overheating while wearing body armor and carrying their gear. But, they also need to be durable and functional so that they continue to be rain and wind resistant season after season. Some key LE features found on many of Propper’s outerwear items include side zippers so the officer can access their firearm while their jacket is zipped up and detachable hoods that won’t become a grab hazard during a close encounter.

Do police officers wear leather jackets?

Motorcycle officers typically wear leather jackets. The leather provides a lot of protection in case of a fall. Most patrol officers have moved on to wearing more technical outerwear made of either a waterproof hard shell or a water resistant but comfortable soft shell. These jackets provide maximum durability and professionalism while being lightweight, breathable, and comfortable. These jackets also build in all the modern features LE professionals need to help with their job, including drop panels, side zippers for firearm and duty belt access, and even quiet magnet close pockets for no look opening and closing.
