Ever heard of Steingrau-Oliv? This older Cold War era parka is almost as popular in Germany and Europe as the M65 jacket in the States - if you haven't seen one of these before, it's about time to get acquinted with it!
The older Bundeswehr field jacket is a hooded parka with an excellent cut and a removeable fake fur liner jacket. The model is refreshingly old fashioned - no iPod smart phone pockets, mediaports, membranes or other hi-tech stuff. Instead, you'll find good practical solutions for field use, like the heavy zipper, pockets with normal button closure and thick cotton material. If you're seeking a classic military parka, this is the archetype!
The production started in the early 60's, and stopped in the 90's when the Bundeswehr dared to go all camouflaged again. However, the old model was so loved that it went to production again - not by the army, but other German manufacturers. Of course these parkas we sell here are actual German army issue ones from the olden days (or made by contractors but all have seen actual use in the Bundeswehr). In fact the current Flecktarn-camouflaged parka is merely an evolution of this old jacket, just with more zippers and snap fasteners.
Sizes are given in centimeters, first up is user height, then chest circumference. These fit like a parka jacket should, i.e. generously. You should not exceed the max. height scale more than just a centimetre or two (a bit less than an inch).
Used surplus. Expect repairs, a bit faded colour, or a missing button or two. Sometimes there's a rubberized piece sewn inside the shoulder area. Sometimes this is a bit crusty. It can be removed or used up until it's silent.
The availability is getting very poor. If you're after one, act before it's too late.
