Once again an army quality article for the kind of cash you find crammed in the bottom of your pocket after a wet night downtown. This Belgian parka isn't too warry looking at all, blending in fine with a civilian wardrobe while offering the wearer quality seldom seen in regular clothing stores.

All in all, a very typical rock-solid army green parka:

  • Stow-away hood hidden in the collar.
  • Four front pockets, one inside pocket.
  • Drawcord tightening at the waist. The drawcord might also be missing.
  • Light cotton lining.
  • Belgian national insigina on the sleeves (not always). If you really hate the nation, you can carefully remove them.

Now, because we are talking about genuine army stuff, the fabric is made for proper use. Keeps the wind out wonderfully and will stand a light rain shower without getting soaked. It's probably polycotton blend, the tags advise washing at 60°C / 140°F.

Sizing

Sizes are given in centimeters, first up is user height, then chest circumference. If you use inches, divide the centimeter sizes by 2,54, or use our handy converter. While these have some room for warm clothing worn underneath, they are not overly baggy.

Here are the measured sleeve lengths (shoulder seam to cuff) for each size:

  • S: 61 cm
  • M: 63 cm
  • L: 65 cm
  • EL: 67 cm
  • EEL: 69 cm

Condition

All in nice, used shape, completely serviceable. There might occasionally be a slightly musty warehouse smell, and it will go away in use after a while.

Takissa oleva huppu on lähinnä säälittävä - pieni eikä suojaa oikein mitään paitsi niskaa tihkusateelta, mutta muuten takki on oikein tyylikäs ja sopiva syksyisten ilmojen pukine. Vähän kuin trenssi, mutta arkisempi.

Tää päällä näyttää semispugelta, mutta suojaapa munia myöten tuulelta. Painaa todella paljon (46-48EL 1,3kg) metsässä tätä ei viitsi kantaa mukanaan, mutta esim. työmatkoilla jne tosi hyvä.

Lyhyesti: pirun hieno takki varsinkin hintaisekseen, mutta kannattaa varautua näkemään vähän vaivaa ennen käyttöönottoa.

Perusteluja:
M88 istuu päälle paljon paremmin kuin useimmat ylijäämäparkat. Napakan istuvuuden ja neutraalin yleisilmeen vuoksi tämä päällä voi kulkea kaupungillakin aiheuttamatta sen kummemmin paheksuntaa. Oma kappaleeni näyttää ja tuntuu enemmän täyspuuvillalta kuin sekoitekankaalta, sillä valkkasin myymälästä vähän muita vastaavia tummemman yksilön. Vanhempaa erää kenties? Joka tapauksessa takki vakuuttaa niin ulkonäön kuin ominaisuuksiensa puolesta. Taskuja on juuri sopivasti muttei yhtään liikaa, ja pituuttakin on tarpeeksi kurjemmille keleille. Sateella en ole ehtinyt tätä vielä pitää, mutta harkitsen vakavasti takin vahaamista tai käsittelemistä jollain suojasuihkeella jos kangas päästää liikaa vettä läpi.

Huonoina puolina mainittakoon ensinnäkin haju. Valitsemani takki kärysi jo myymälässä vähemmän kuin muut kokeilemani koot (luojan kiitos), mutta haju oli silti aika hirveä. Koimyrkyn ja varaston haju olisi varmasti tarttunut takista muihinkin vaatteisiin, joten kotiin tuotuani heitin sen välittömästi pyykkikoneeseen. Pesin takin koneessa 60 asteessa kahdesti, ja ensimmäisellä kerralla lisäsin huuhteluaineeksi reilulla kädellä etikkaa. Tämä tuntui auttavan, eikä takki enää haise.

Toisena miinuksena mainittakoon se, että hihassa oleva lippu oli kuvauksesta poiketen kiinni liimalla. Lipun poistaminen vaati vähän enemmän kikkailua, mutta kärsivällisen raaputtelun jälkeen onnistuin siinä lopulta, eikä kankaaseen ihme kyllä jäänyt minkäänlaisia jälkiä.

Toimii joskus talvitakkinakin, erityisesti villapaidan kanssa, mutta en voi erityisesti suositella sen kummempaa liikunta-aktiviteettia - jos takin alla hikoilee, siitä tulee kylmä, märkä ja ikävä. Yleiseen paikasta toiseen liikkumiseen ja ulkona seisoskeluun toimii kuitenkin vallan hyvin ja jos joudut yllättävälle ostosreissulle, taskuihinkin mahtuu jonkin verran sälää. Hupusta ei ole mihinkään, ota sen sijaan päähine mukaan.

This looks like the first review in English, so here goes. I bought this jacket with the intention of using it as a replacement for my cheap cotton hoodie. At first it seemed to be to large, but after trying it on I discovered that the fit was darn near perfect for how I wanted it to feel. The seams around the shoulder do restrict mobility somewhat, but that is mostly my fault for ordering it without first looking at the converted measurements. All in all, this jacket is money well spent, especially when you consider that it's only 19 US dollars. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for an inexpensive yet quality jacket.

My new favorite surplus jacket! I'm 6'2" tall with a 44" chest, so I ordered the 55-56 EEL size. The shoulder seems sit right and sleeve lengths are perfect. Little roomy around the gut, but that works well for layering. Seems to be mostly unissued, nothing worn, torn, or missong. Even has the Belgian flag on the left shoulder. This just replaced my Bundeswhehr parka as my #1.

I bought this in the run up to the winter months as I needed another jacket that was enough to keep me warm without the need of a jumper or hoody but also not too warm with other things on underneath. This jacket does the trick. The delivery was prompt and packed well, the product itself was in great condition. I wasn't sure about the sizing when I initially ordered it but the sizing lets me put on a hoodie underneath and not make me feel like an oven. It has certainly helped me survive in these chilly winter months. I can see myself wearing this after the winter as well, great buy.
