The Shok jacket is virtually identical to the Flak jacket - it has the same heavy-weight nylon face/eVent membrane combination, highly water-resistant Riri Aquazips and a close, active cut. In fact, the only difference is the pocket arrangement, the Shok having a more versatile (and conventional) external access to its cavernous chest pockets.
The Shok jacket is no longer available. A new version, along with some new, additional styles, will be available in mid-2018.

eVent is a fabulously breathable fabric, better than any other. To ensure the performance and longevity of your eVent jacket, it is really important that you wash it regularly, particularly if you are using it a lot. We appreciate that this can be a hassle, but at the very least you should always wipe down the areas of the neck and lower hood that most commonly come into contact with sweaty skin. Build-up of salt will contaminate the membrane and cause it to start to delaminate, so a good rinse with water is vital.
