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!

Some history

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.

Regarding sizing

Sizes are given in centimeters, first up is user height, then chest circumference. These fit like a parka jacket should, i.e. generously. Sometimes the user's recommended height is marked as, for example, "170-180 cm" and sometimes just "174 cm". A "174" will fit a person a few centimetres taller or many centimetres shorter.

Condition

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.

Parka has a nice thickness with the faux fur liner and is very comfortable. The hood is accommodating even if you're wearing an ushanka. Pockets are good size too

Described well, as always. This old parka is unique and reminds you of a time men were men and parkas were parkas. At 186 cm and 80 kilos I ordered the 180/190-105 chest. It fits well, the sleeves could be a touch longer, but I have monkey length arms. Still fits okay. I love the unique side pockets, brilliant! The ends of the sleeves came a bit tattered and a button was ready to fall off. It is a bit faded with some stains and looks as if it has been well used. Still completely functional. Good old coat overall with some unique features and old school goodness. I wish I would of got a nicer one, but I wish I had a 7 figure bank account and a 12" cock too.

No stains, no missing buttons, liner looks un-issued. One small hole at the left cuff, and the button next to it looks a bit loose. Other than that this is much better than I was hoping for. Eventually I'll learn how to sew and fix the hole and button. Also came with some genuine BW issue pocket lint, old gum wrapper, and bit of wire in the pocket. Just can't beat that.

My parka came with a 1987 manufacture date and looks almost brand new with no stains, frays or missing anything and it fits me like a glove.
