The Czech response to those bitter East-European winters; this is a modular winter jacket with a shell layer, hood, thick liner and the essential teddy collar, all separable. Thanks to the design, it works well in warmer weather too. It's even a pretty good looking parka considering its origin.

A properly done winter parka from the Czech Republic. They got rid of these a decade after the Cold War ended when the army went all camouflaged. Fortunately, the ex-Czechoslovakian army was also a conscript one, so these have been made in great numbers!

Round the year jacket!

The shell parka

  • Water resistant, windproof fabric
  • Long hem, zipper & button closure
  • Essential pockets, two handwarmers and two breast pockets
  • Drawcord adjustment on the hem

The extras

  • Teddy liner jacket, buttons up to the shell. The liner worn by itself is great for that "Russian peasant in the 1800's" impression!
  • Teddy collar, a great complimet to the liner and gives the jacket that wintery finish
  • A small hood to complete the package - when the collar is lifted up and the hood drawn over everything, you'll stay warm with the cost of looking daff.
  • Often comes with a fabric belt

Material and care

Being made of mostly synthetic materials, this is a surprisingly lightweight jacket despite its generous and wintery appearance. Wash at about 40 degrees Celsius if necessary.

Size info

Sizes according to user's recommended user height and chest circumference in centimetres. This parka is designed to accommodate other clothing underneath, no need to pick a larger size just to be sure. If you're a few cm wider or taller than the recommended numbers, it's still OK!

Genuine military surplus

We would like to reserve the right to sell these as "used", but most of them are in fact unissued or otherwise in excellent shape. The only fault to expect is the missing belt in some cases.

Lämmin ja ihan tyylikäs rotsi. Huppu on tehty kypärän kanssa käytettäväksi, mutta sen saa onneksi irrotettua. Kannattaa huomioida, että kun muhkean vuoren irrottaa, äsken sopiva takki muuttuu helposti liian isoksi. Itse käytän tätä lähinnä vain kylmimpinä aikoina ja siihen hommaan ihan bueno. Armani muuten seikkailee tämmöinen päällä Siperiassa. Täytyy käydä joku kerta metsässä kökkimässä tämän kanssa ja testata, että miten toimii.

Godtier takki maalle ja ehkä kaupunkiinkin, kelpaa vuorinkin kanssa nollakeleillä jos ei turhaan sykkyile ja kovemmilla pakkasilla voi pistää lisää tavaraa alle ilman ongelmaa.
Syksyllä ja keväällä fleecevuoren voi korvata vaikka hupparilla tai villapaidalla joten vuoden ympäri käyttäminen onnistuu, tosin voi tulla paha mieli kun ole vuorin resoreita suojaamassa ranteita.
Kaulus suojaa nostettuna mutta napitus on vähän suurpiirteinen, tuuli pääsee keskeltä läpi kaulaan. Tämä tosin korjataan putkikaulurilla
Huppu on täysin turha mutta onneksi sen saa irti. Kovilla pakkasilla tai kovassa tuulessa tämä saattaa tosin koitua ongelmaksi
Kaiken lisäksi tämä näyttää ihan tarpeeksi sotilaalliselta että kehtaa katsellakkin.

Takki on tosi lämmin, alle sain mahtumaan t-paidan & ohuen pitkähihaisen paidan, muuten aivan mahtava takki mutta nappeja laittaessa sormet kärsii, on nimittäin aika pienet reiät niille, ja toinen "huono" puoli on ne kiristysnauhat jotka on takin keskiosassa sekä alaosassa, oli vedetty puolittain läpi etteivät ne enää toimineet niinkuin pitäisi, mutta takki oli jo sopiva minulle niin revin ne 2 kuminauhaa suoraan pois, todellakin suosittelen tätä jos haluatte pysyä lämpöisenä talvisin.

Ihan hyvä takki oli sen pari-kolme kuukautta, kunnes vetoketju hajosi (lukon vastakappale repesi vetoketjun alaosasta irti). Joko valmistusvirhe, tai sitten takki ei ole ihan niin kestävää tekoa mitä tuollaiselta armeijakäyttöön tarkoitetulta vaatteelta odottaisi. En siis suosittele, koska en pidä asioista jotka menevät rikki.

This one definitely stands out as something made in a Soviet country. It looks Soviet and is bomb proof as AK47 of parkas. Mine had four buttons missing and when I wrote about it to Varusteleka the guys gave me a discount for my next purchase, which was pretty cool.

Well... it looks like the greatest jacket/coat I'll ever own. I'd say mine's un-issued. It's all there, including buttons (the buttons on the epaulets have the CZ crossed swords - at least that's what they are to me). The liner is very warm and is attached with buttons, not zippers, which is fine with me - I've had too many liner zippers fall apart on other jackets. If it holds up as well as it appears it will, I'll have it for the rest of my life. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that I just haven't put it through a winter, yet. I'm sure it'll be fine, tho. Oh, it's $30. It's $30. One more time: it's $30.

What can be said that hasn't been said before?
You get a lot for your money. This jacket can withstand the worse of rains and is really comfortable and warm.
The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because of the weak zipper inside and some barely noticeable wear marks on the side.

Buy it.

Top3 varustelekan tuota omaan käyttööni! Koko on tosiaa reilu! Tilasin 180/112 takin, oma rinnanympärys (ja vyötärön) oli 122 ku mittasin. T-paita, merinohuppari ja takki vuorineen helposti päälle ja sai vielä vähän kiristelläkii. Ite en vyöstä tykänny, onneks on kuminauhakiristys lisäks jolla saa vähä muotoo takkiin. Yks tähti pois kun onhan tämä sen näkönen että asus sillan alla. Tosin jos pitäs asua sillan alla ja sais takin valita niin se ois kyllä tämä! Hinta/laatu enenmän kun kohallaan!

I got a size smaller to get a better fit and it's perfect. The liner keeps you toasty warm and with the faux fur collar popped up you look positively pimpin. I'm only confused by the small number and size of the pockets. Considering most military garb has enough pockets to double as an orphanage this was a minor letdown. Still a 10/10 because it's so cheap

Rugged build, and a comfortable liner. I got one that was exactly my measurements (180/100), but it goes nearly down to my knees, and I must roll the sleeves up to not look like a complete goof. Luckily, this works great as an IDPA concealment garment; the excess size when the liner is removed leaves plenty of breathing room.

If I ordered it again, I would probably order a size shorter for a better fit.

Todella lämmin palttoo sydäntalven pakkasille. Tähän asti takki kestänyt kaksi talvea ilman mitään ongelmia. -25 pakkasilla takin alle riittä ohut pitkähihainen t-paita ja siltikin meinaa kävellessä tulla hiki. Takin kiristimillä saa takista särmemmän näköisen ja viima ei pääse lävitse mistään. Jos takista haluaa vielä muhkeamman näköisen, niin mukana tulevan kangasvyön voi korvata jollain nahkaisella sotilasvyöllä.

I just received my order and it’s fantastic but I will say that this isn’t the first one I’ve owned because I’m a 36 chest and ordered one from a different website and it was way to big (it definitely was a 36chest) so go for a size or two smaller then you actually are. The product is in excellent condition and With postage that quick (4days) I’m definitely going to order more from Varusteleka

Erittäin lämmin takki, pelkästään T-paita alla kuljettu kolmenkympin pakkasilla ilman vilun väreitä. Ainoina lievinä kitinän kohteina hiukan avonainen kaulus, joten huivia pakkasilla tarvii takin kaveriksi. Myös takin huppu on varmasti kännissä suunniteltu, positiivista että sen saa napiteltua pois.

AN AWESOME FIND! I ordered 188/106, fits my 2-meter (6'8") height PERFECTLY, even with the liner in! I usually have to remove the liner from U.S. sized XXL coats, to get the sleeve length I need (U.S. measure of 38 inches), but this parka was an inch or two TOO LONG. Very nice! Very Warm! Like NEW.

A litte bigger than I estimated when I took mesurements, but now I have room for some extra clothes when its cold outside so its ok. Took a long walk in the rain today and the fabric seems to be fairly waterproof.

It is very warm and comfy. I only had a t-shirt under and could manage a couple of hours outside in zub-zero temperatures.

The only negative I have to say about the parka is that the zipper is of really bad quality, it will probably break soon, so I plan to replace it with a more durable one. Meanwhile I just use the buttons.

I dig the jacket. Very warm, blocks wind well.

Sizing leaves a bit to be desored...I'm 6'2" with a 52 inch chest though so it's understandable that Eastern European milsurp gear won't quite fit properly.

For the price, you CANT beat this parka! Its huge, heavy, and warm. I have yet to rely on it in heavy rain for extended periods of time, however, but i plan to wax it to ensure that it is waterproof.
The down side? It is so long that if you conceal carry a firearm and use only the zipper, you are very likely to break the zipper when you draw your firearm. (Train with your gear!)
So my zipper is busted, but i still gave it 5 stars... its $30, i use it on all my adventures, and now i just use the buttons.
I liked it so much i did a video at thepreppersbunkeroutdoors on youtube, feel free to check it out.
For a woods beater jacket, this thing is AWESOME!

Mukava päällä ja mielestäni hieno. Takin kunto moitteeton. Oikean koon valitseminen tuotti netistä päänvaivaa joten tässä oma kokemukseni. Minä: 184 cm pitkä vähän mahakas herrasmies. Rinnanympärystä 120 cm ja maha vähän enemmän. Tilasin takin kokoa 180/112. Ensikokeilu t-paita ja huppari takin alla olo oli kuin makkarankuoressa, mutta tarkotukseni olikin vuori ottaa pois. Vuoren kun otti pois niin t-paita ja huppari mahtuivat nätisti alle ja liikkuvuus takin kanssa normaali. Pituus ei ihan puoleenreiteen.

I love this jacket. I'm 182cm tall but I decided to go a size shorter and get the 172/100. Jacket fits perfectly. Go a size smaller on length, keep the chest the same and you should get a great fit. It's warm, classic, and water resistant to a point. The wide stand-up collar is great, and few other jackets have one. My first day wearing it around London a guy tapped me on the shoulder and asked where I got my coat. Great product, great price.

I didnt get my parka from varusteleka because shipping would be 3 times as much as the parka itself, but i got the same one from a surplus outlet.
The price is amazing for what you get, its big its warm and depending on your style it looks good. Now the furish liner is ok, the canvas is good, bot tooo thick not to thin, the collar is gloriuos and the hood is crap. The only reason i ceep my hood on is because it helps close the collar closer to my face. I would note that the hood is supposed to go outside a helmet, and that is likely why it isnt fittet for my head that well...
Id recomend a whool sweater underneath if its really cold because the liner isnt so warm that you can go naked underneath.

All factors considered this gets a 5/5 stars from me, its affordable and high quality for the most part. For the price i couldnt eaven get the material themselves here in norway.

WOW! Excellent shape and $30? There is no better made or warmer winter coat for such a price anywhere. This is one of those military items that you love beacause you got it dirt cheap, it's like new, and works better than anything you could buy at store. Glad I got two.

Also the blonde pictured did not come with the coat in case you are wondering.

I can't call the parka perfect when it's being compared to far more engineered and modern ones, but the I can't get enough of the damn thing's USSR-esque simplicity and the comprehendable form (which I haven't found in many of the gadget-filled futuristic übercoats).
The M85 has my respect not only because of the dirt-cheap price, but I have to respect it for the fact that the coat was made to "get the job done" and it did it so well that it looks good just because it can.
I'm not going to give it the full five, mainly because of the weight and "roughness" of the thing. The buttons alone showcased to me that the coat wasn't made for the weak, but I didn't end up minding it that much.

it's a really nice year-round coat, but there's two negatives to consider - first, it's heavy as fuck compared to modern clothing which does the same thing, and second, the zipper is shit and fell apart within six months of use. replace that, probably costs an extra 10€, and after that it's probably indestructible (or close enough to it).
I'm happy I got one, even though the person pulling it from the back of the shop didn't bother to give me a belt to go with it. excellent for the price, and I've been dragging mine everywhere with me for something like a full year now, only replacing it in the dead of winter.

Hemmetin lämmin takki pakkaselle. Villavuori lämmittää sellasella voimakkuudella, että 10 asteen pakkasessa voi t-paidan kanssakin takilla römistellä. Takilla ei välttämättä rynnäkköön kannata lähteä, mutta kaupunkikäytössä/pakkasella liikkuminen hyvin mukava pitää yllään.

Ry 106 cm riittää 118 cm lantion yli heittämällä. Mutta paksu vuori pönköttää kainaloissa ja napit on ommeltu todella kireälle. Vetoketju rikki jo tullessa ja aivan onneton rempula. Hetken nyt mietin mitä tämän kanssa teen koska muuten vaikuttaa pätevälle. Jos jaksais napit ommella uudelleen ja vaihtaa kunnon vetoketjun niin tulis tuosta takki.

Pros
-its stupid cheap
-its warm
-if you get the belt it can be surprisingly fashionable I guess
-felt fairly comfy. When my heat went out for some reason this was the jacket I liked to wear around the house
-as dumb as the fur collar looks it works well

Cons
-zipper is absolutely trash
-Hood was made for a helmet, useless otherwise, you'll need a hat
-wouldnt trust it for anything more than a light mist or sprinkle of rain
-the fur collar looks absolutely ridiculous and I probably wouldn't wear that bit in public, thankfully it can be taken off to be a regular canvas collar.
-its under $30 for a reason

This is a beater jacket you buy dirt cheap so you're not worried about it getting torn up or dirty. At this it excels. I don't think you could find another jacket in this price range that will be as warm and tough for milsurp or anywhere else really. The belt is really handy as well, helps deal with a lot of the "poof" jackets like this tend to have, helps make it easier to work and move in, and looks good. When my power went out last winter storm I wore this around my house while I made a fire, cooked food, read a book, etc. and it was very comfy, even though I had more modern jackets laying all over the house.

On the other hand if you have the money other jackets do it way better. The zipper is awful, the hood is pointless without a helmet, and it's not really something that would resist water. This is something for a broke as hell guy who needs a basic jacket for the colder months or someone who wants a beater jacket and doesn't want to mess up their m65. If this jacket was $10-20 more its rating would drop very quickly. As it sits you'd be dumb not to get one to have sitting around as a backup. Hopefully yours comes with the belt, but if not itd be easy to fabricate and is worth the effort, it helps a lot.

5.5/5 Customer service.

The fur collar and hood were "missing", but popped out ( I have no idea where) after the first laundry.

Simply cheap and warm, plus a Slavic winter look. The zipper is not the greatest but functional.

Wear a T-shirt plus this thing at -5℃ weather is totally fine.

Lämmin ja hyvännäköinen takki. 172/82 koolla just passeli 177 cm 65 kg kokoiselle narulle.
Mukana tuli kaikki lisävarusteet, paitsi pari ylimmäistä nappia oli joskus matkanvarrella kadonnut, nappien korjaus oli kuitenkin helppoa.
Vetoketju aika hepposen tuntuinen mutta pitäis kestää jos ei hätäile avaamisessa ja sulkemisessa.
Keskikiristyksen naru oli haurastunut täysin koppuraksi, muuta uuden sai tehtyä paracordilla.
Takin vuori oli kuvista poiketen punaruskea ja lämpökaulus taas harmaa, mutta eipä se menoa haittaa.
Huppu on kyllä aika jännä viritys joten tuskin paljoa käyttöä tulee näkemään

Näistä asioista huolimatta erittäin pätevä talvirotsi hintaansa nähden!

I owned this jacket for over 2 years, very good jacket. The one I bought originally (not from Varusteleka) was an older one from 1988. I got another one just now as a spare, manufactured in 1991, however the newer one is of poorer quality compared to the late 80's manufacture, with a flimsier zip and slightly different material (feels rougher) and poorer finish on the stitching. However still very good jackets, especially the older manufacture. Both were made in the same factory, and the new one arrived in like-new condition.

An awesome product, it's well built and toasty, haven't tested under rain yet but it seems to keep you dry under light rain. I'm 175/110 and ordered an 164/94 and fits perfect, because here in Spain it's not needed to add many layers under the coat. I don´t like bulky or too long parkas so if you dont want to swim inside the parka i recommend to order 1 less size in heigh, and keep the same chest size as you are for adding layers underneath or go a size under for a more civilian fit.

the parka is 10/10 for the money and the item you get, excelent product.

Loistava takki, lämmin kuin mikä eikä maksa mitään. Kyytipojaksi kaulahuivi ja vaikka joku ylijäämävillapaita niin ei tarvitse murehtia suomen talvessakaan, ikinä. Itse otin kahta kokoa pienemmän ja silti mahtuu villapaita hyvin alle. Jos jotain negatiivistä pitää sanoa niin sivutaskut lähinnä käsien lämmittelyyn, eivät ole syvät eikä mitään sulkumekanismia joten lähinnä laskut laittaisin tänne turvaan. Kunto ainakin omassani uutta vastaava ellei uusi. Suosittelen ehdottomasti kaikille ketkä ovat sujut metsän muodin kanssa, mikään onnelarotsi tää ei oo.

Simply put: The best jacket I've ever had, especially considering the price.

After owning it for nearly two years, I have to say, I probably made the best clothing purchase ever.

The jacket is made from bombproof material, which makes it pretty heavy, but also indestructible.
Mine came in perfect condition, with everything working as expected.

The jacket is very warm with the liner, and also really versatile. In the summer months, I often used it as a ground sheet for sitting on, and it just refuses to get dirty.

This coat kept me alive and warm driving around the freezing winter, with no heat in my car. It has a nice Soviet look. Combined it with Finnish M65 wool trousers and green BW mittens for total protection.

Etsin edullista, käytännöllistä ja lämmintä takkia talveksi, ja kokeilin tätä. Takkia sanottiin reilun kokoiseksi, joten tilasin koon 164/100cm, vaikka rinnanympärykseni on toistakymmentä senttiä suurempi. Takki oli sopiva, ja sinne jäi vuorin ja ohuen paidan kanssa hyvin tilaa neulepaidalle tai hupparille. Periaatteessa olisin siis voinut ottaa myös 164/94, mutta parempi kun takkiin jää hieman tilaa paksummankin paidan kanssa. Yhden tähden tiputan pois huonon vetoketjun vuoksi. Sen joudun joka tapauksessa vaihtaa.

This is the full package, cold war zv.85 parka. I believe it was used from 1985 until vz.95 was introduced a decade later. It seems that the outer is a 50% cotton, 50% polyester material.

It's very warm, even when soaked. A whole day of hiking in intermittent rain and mist in the Cairngorms thoroughly soaked the outer (eventually into the hand-pockets towards the end of the day) but miraculously my inner layers stayed completely dry and warm.

One thing to note however is sizing -- Leka's size guide is super generous, so choose lower.

Lämmin, käytännöllinen ja mummolan kellarilta tuoksuva takki. Kahvimuki kädessä seisoskellessa tällä voisi tienata vahingossa pari euroakin joltain empatiaa täynnä olevalta ihmiseltä.
Vitsit sikseen, tää on oikeasti törkeen hyvä takki hintaisekseen, ei valittamista!

This season, fur collars are everywhere, on men's and women's winter jackets alike. With a bit of work, this military grade parka can be upgraded to a level of sartorial style well above what's sold on the High Street.The faux fur used on this collar is lower grade than even the low-grade faux fur found on the mass-market winter garments in most stores today. The good news is: this collar is attached with buttons, and not sewn in place; it can be removed and used as a template for tracing a pattern piece to make a replacement. Be sure to mark the positions of the buttonholes precisely, and don't forget to add the seam allowances. Faux fur is available in fabric stores today of such good quality that it sometimes takes a very close look to tell that it isn't real fur. Low-grade faux fur can often be identified at a glance by it's "dull" appearance. Brush your hand against it, and it will feel "rough". Good quality faux fur, depending on the length of it's nap, will have a more-or-less glossy appearance, a smoother, softer hand, and generally a more inviting and appealing look. An ambitious sewist might add faux fur trimming to the cuffs and hood, or even an entirely new faux fur lining. And about that hood: you know those token, postage stamp sized hoods found on all the hoodies sold on the High Street? This hood isn't like those; it's designed to fit over a combat helmet, so it's a real, proper, useable hood sized so generously that it might obscure your vision if you wear it without a helmet or baseball cap. I removed the elastic and replaced it with 1.75 mm. coated Cu wire (won't rust) as used in the electric motor industry; the Cu wire works as a drawstring, and also allows you to shape the hood to your liking. The hip pockets, although corduroy lined to help keep hands warm, are too small to also hold beer cans in your hands. The chest pockets will hold a pack of smokes, but aren't deep enough or wide enough to conceal even regular 355 ml. beer cans. There are no inside pockets whatsoever to conceal anything in. The sleeves (even without liner of any kind) are too closely cut to conceal wine bottles inside. The fabric, I'm guessing (garment tags don't say), is a polyester/cotton blend gabardine weave, which is, in, fact, so tightly woven as to be somewhat water resistant (staying on the surface as drops which roll off, or can be shaken off). I've never found this parka to get soaking wet. The colour is a plain, ugly, "baby puke-ish" and field-serviceable olive drab. And it's true: this coat does have a distinct "homeless" or "on-or-near the street" character to it. This coat is cut so long that one can enjoy a six-pack whilst sitting in a Roman chair against the retaining wall behind the liquor store without the cold blowing up one's back.

Ostin koon 172/88 (itse olen 178/90) ja takki on juuri sopiva. Tälleen nollakelien tuntumassa pelkkä t-paitakin on liikaa takin alla. Erittäin lämmin vaate siis. Tyylikäskin vielä. Vetoketju on kestänyt jo kaksi päivää eli plussaa siitäkin.

Amazing. Arrived complete and in unissued condition. Nice, heavy tight-weave synthetic fabric, highly rain-resistant and completely windproof without any extra treatment at all, and excellent workmanship for Warsaw Pact cold war surplus.

Only downsides are the iffy zipper that others have mentioned. The coat itself will be around for decades after that has stripped itself and the zipper will be an easy replacement. The liner is decently warm and fits the coat well, but pills somewhat on first wash, and became noticeably less soft after a single run through the dryer. Lower heat probably would have helped there. The design and layout is simple enough that anyone who can run a sewing machine could knock out a replacement from a fleece blanket in 30 minutes.

Sizing was perfect per the table, and comfortably loose for an additional layer below the liner at the recommendation.

Liner aside, this is the Three Wolf Moon shirt of military surplus field jackets. Buy it.

buy it. Ok the zipper is not the best, but when it breaks (if it does) you can replace it. It will make the coat worth every cent.

My first order from Varusteleka and I must say I am extremely impressed. Item left Helsinki on Monday and I received in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada in Thursday morning. Jacket was in like new condition. Hood and collar was tucked nicely into the arm just in case you are looking for it when you open box. Jacket itself was beyond my expectations. Excellent quality. As mentioned by others the zipper is the only thing that keeps the jacket from being sold for 3x the price. I am blown away by the jacket and am very happy to have made the purchase. It is rare nowadays that you feel like you get a real quality item in this age of planned obsolescence that we are living in. Really nice to receive a jacket that you can see still able to be functional 15 years down the road and probably many more than that. Since I have had such a positive experience with my first order I plan to follow up this order next week with a pair of m77 boots and maybe some chocolate! Thanks Varusteleka! - Will from Canada
