Kakadu’s Kimberly Jacket combines concealment with comfort and fashion. They have combined a single leather flap that covers the top pocket that is offset by a draw corded waist and two large bellowed bottom pockets. The chunky metal zipper is covered by a snap down placket cover, and it features cow hide trim on the collar, flap and sleeve adjuster tabs. The Kimberly Jacket is made of 100% cotton canvas on the outer layer, with a 100% cotton lining. The reinforcement lining is 100% Nylon. This high quality jacket has genuine leather trim to complete the classy design. Sizing covers all sizes from small to XXL, and comes in camel or black color. A big plus is how comfortable the jacket is to wear, especially when concealed carrying.

The jacket isn’t just about fashion though, it is completely set up for function. With deep shoulder pleats to allow full arm movement, double back vents with snap closures you are sure to be able to move where you need to go. As with all concealment garments from Kakadu, the coat is fully lined, has 2 internal pockets, and they have built-in small panels of 300D Nylon. One major advantage I found with this jacket to others is that it is designed for both left and right hand side entries to the internal holsters. The internal holsters are protected with anti-imprint neoprene pads that are fully adjustable and removable through side seams. These camouflage the outline of your handgun.

I like that I can throw on my jacket when I am running out the door to take the kids to their activities or wear it with my boots in the woods and I know the canvas shell will stand up to anything life can throw at it. Since I am left-handed, it is important to me to have my handgun close at hand, and also easy to draw.

While I have never needed to use my handgun in a serious situation, I have practiced drawing and firing at a target until I am proficient at all movements. I have 2 CCW’s; a S&W .380 and a much larger Ithaca 1911 .45. Even the .45 can be worn without shifting the jacket or having the handgun outline show.
