Marine Corps Combat Desert Jacket

In an effort to meet its ever changing environmental challenges, The Marine Corps has identified a need for a Combat Desert Jacket (CDJ) that will provide protection from the unique environmental nature of the desert.

The CDJ is a lightweight, wind resistant, water repellent jacket intended to provide multi-season environmental protection in desert environments. It provides protection against wind, blowing sand and light rain/snow, will have a minimal impact on the combat load and utilizes desert MARPAT printed fabrics that feature moisture management, odor reduction and breathability characteristics.


The CDJ has been designed to be compatible for wear with the Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform, fleece pullover and lightweight cold weather underwear.

The CDJ has the following features:

  • Five pockets with water resistant zipper closures-two chest, two lower front, and one upper sleeve.
  • A rank tab on the left front chest.
  • Collar has a stowed balaclava (hood).
  • A light weight four-way stretch material in the underarm and upper back panels reduces bulk and provides mobility and ventilation.
  • Sleeves have reinforced elbows, a rank tab, and adjustable wrist closures.
  • The sleeves end in a monkey paw configuration that provides additional hand protection and insulation. (later eliminated.)
