BW parka, Tropentarn, surplus
The standard field jacket used by the Bunderswehr in a nice desert theme. Tough as nails, functional cut and smart features make this a really good 3-season jacket.
The BW parka showcases Teutonic ability to make comfortable, stylish and generally just really good clothes. Suitable for any outdoor activity, but also right at home in casual everyday use.
The Bundeswehr model parka is a longish, durable field jacket with zipper closure and four front pockets (two zipper operated and two with snap fasteners), a sleeve pocket and drawstrings in the hem, waist and hood. Though unlined, the cotton used is pretty thick and blocks wind wonderfully. For additional warmth the Germans use a separate liner jacket, which we also most likely sell when you read this. If we don't have it, just use something else!
The material is in most cases a mix of 65% cotton and 35% polyester.
Sizes in the regular Bunderwehr system, with sizes in the brackets (height/chest). If you are between sizes, round up.
Because BW jackets have relatively short sleeves, our designation is 5 cm shorter than the BW size. So if the BW size is 175-185 cm for example, we say it's suitable for a 170-180 cm tall person. Don't shit your pants if the tag on your jacket states it's for a 5 cm taller person than the sizes we have listed.
Used German surplus
In used but serviceable condition. Of course being used, the colours might be a bit faded and there might be some repairs, but all in all these are all way better than just usable.

The coat is in perfect shape, no holes or color fading. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I feel spoiled ordering from Varusteleka because they are one of the only surplus stores online that provide proper sizing. As i'm sure most people who collect MilSurp know, nothing is more annoying than the basic S/M/L sizing that most places use...
As always shipping was fast, 4 days to get from Finland to Canada,Ontario with basic shipping. 10/10 would support their global takeover again.

These folks are easily my newest most favorite surplus dealers and their products are the best out there.
