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 Combat Woodland Jacket (CWJ) is a woodland version of the combat desert jacket.
The jacket and trousers are designed for use in moderate to cold weather conditions as a soft shell layer combined with other base and insulative layers.The jacket and trousers provide light weight, low bulk and extreme comfort for movement.
The LEP layer 5 wind resistant fleece jacket is fabricated in heavyweight fleece wind resistant fabric. It is the same basic design as the layer 4 heavyweight fleece jacket with the addition of wristovers and a hood.

The jacket features high collar for added protection, zippered chest and sleeve cargo pockets, and two flapped double pen pockets.
