British CS95 parka, ripstop, DPM, surplus

Price 18.99 USD excluding VAT

British Army Soldier 95 parka with DPM camouflage. Kinda like the classic Windproof Smock, but slightly lighter and not as oversized. A very nice allrounder whenever you need a decent jacket - just stuff a thick fleece or a sweater underneath if needed.

British Army Soldier 95 parka with DPM camouflage. Kinda like the classic Windproof Smock, but slightly lighter and not as oversized. A very nice allrounder whenever you need a decent jacket - just stuff a thick fleece or a sweater underneath if needed.

In a nutshell

  • Unlined, ripstop reinforced field parka
  • A proper handful of useful pockets
  • Made in England!

A true go-to parka

The parka is made of very durable windproof, ripstop reinforced nylon/cotton material, and features a generous cut, zipper closure, four large front pockets and adjustments wherever needed. The buttons are of the large CS95 type (aka. Canada buttons), which are big enough to be operated with gloves on and are attached with a piece of flat lace rather than just threads.

All in the CS95 parka is a pretty straightforward modern field jacket. It's sensible and well thought out, fits pretty well and is just the right thickness for general use as a shell layer. The tall collar protects your neck when raised and looks alright when folded.

Liked by the squaddies too!

Perhaps the best reassurance of the quality and functionality is that the garment is praised by British soldiers, who are known to complain about anything other people would shrug off. An approval from the original users is something not lightly gained, and you can trust they have been through shit wearing these.

Sizing info

Sizes are given in centimetres, first up is user height, then chest circumference. If you use inches, divide the centimeters by 2,54 or use the converter.

These run large enough to fit some warm stuff underneath.

Condition

Used, but in serviceable condition.

Review of British Soldier 95 parka, ripstop

I have used this parka for a couple of years on different journies through the mountains and I am of the opinion that is is one of our most under-appreciated jackets. Among the jacket's features are a brilliant cut, fantastic pockets, "Canadian buttons", windproof fabric, and a tall collar. The fabric's "stretchy" rip-stop build also allows it to dry quite quickly.

I could very easily get rid of my backpack due to this jacket's plentiful pocket space. You can fit food and cooking supplies, fire-making tools, a compass, map, knife, a first aid kit, a flashlight, snacks, and almost anything else that you may need when venturing out into the real world. I highly recommend it.

Pretty much like-new in condition. The only sign of issue were unit tabs on both arms, and a two pack of cleaning napkins in a pocket. An excellent jacket and great price.

Erittäin hyvä leikkaus eli todella mukavat päällä. Kangas on ryynäyksen kestävää. Maastoutuu todella hyvin suomen metsiin. Metsästyskäytössä ym plussaa ääneettömistä napeista.

Oikein näppärä takki, omastani oli hihansuut melko rumassa kunnossa, joten ompelin ne kuntoon kanttinauhalla. Todella isot ja hyvät taskut, pärjää melkein ilman kauppakassia pikku ostokset.

Very fine product and quality. I absolutely love it but, make sure to possibly order a size tad smaller as they do run quite large for underlayers.

Third british Combat camo jacket I buy from varusteleka. This one a bit more used than the others. But still long life left in it. I recommend buying this jacket. Can be used all year around. Just wear a wool fleece in winter. Me 164cm chest 92cm 70kg wears a 170/96 with room for layer underneat.

Great parka,The one I received came with unit patches and the previous owners nametape.The zipper had an issue so I brought it down to my local dry cleaners and they put on a new zipper for $5 US, I also had it cleaned and pressed.I wear the parka over a fleece jacket and I am plenty warm.I highly recommend this parka! Thanks again Varusteleka! 5 stars! (Update on washing surplus clothing,just my opinion,try washing the clothing using white vinegar 1/2 to 1 cup in a normal wash cycle to remove any soap from previous washings,it helps to soften the clothing also!)

Aluksi epäilin onko kehujen arvoinen,mutta kun takki ja huppu tuli niin yllätyin positiivisesti,kertakaikkiaan mukava päällä,hinta ja laatu kohdillaan,yksi pieni repeämä oli rinnassa,tullut varmaan merkkiä poistettaessa.Alle paksu fleece niin kyllä pärjää talvellakin.

Kohta kuukauden ollut käytössä ja en voi olla muuta kuin tyytyväinen. Oma takkini ainakin on juuri sopiva, villapaita mahtuu alle on riittävästi taskuja. Jos pitää jotain miinustaa, niin ei kyllä kestä kovinkaan paljon sadetta, mutta näin lintuharrastajalle ja rengastajalle sopii kuin nenä päähän.
