Custom Coroner Jackets
A new vendor recently came forward with two types of jackets to help keep you warm and dry in the field. Chose either a 3 in 1 cold weather or wind and waterproof version. Both can be customized with OCA and OCC logos. A reflective coroner patch can be sewn on or detachable so you can get more use out of your garment.
