Russian winter jacket with detachable liner, Flora, surplus
A winter jacket in the slowly aging Flora camouflage pattern, which will soon receive a cool vintage status. Because these are Russian, they have that all-important fur collar and because they're modern, the liner is removeable too! Just wear this over your favourite Telnyashka - that's all you'll need! Very random availability.
Complete with all the national peculiarities of Russian winter clothing (heavy, manly, glorious to behold), this imposing winter coat will keep you warm in whatever temperatures. Along with the two-part design (shell jacket and button-on liner), the jacket has a cute but sad little hood too hidden behind the collar.
The liner can indeed be removed, rendering this just a shell of its former self, suitable for top layer during a bit less cold weather. Unfortunately the fur collar stays with the liner.
About washing. Well first of all, if at all possible, don't do it. If airing our and spot cleaning with mild soap won't cut it, wash the shell separately in about 40 degrees Celsius. Then wash the liner with gentle wool cycle and hope for the best.
First Russian GOST size, then the same deciphered to user's recommended height and chest circumference in centimetres. These are generously sized, so if your measurements slip a few centimetres over the recommendations, it's no big deal.
Real Russian "surplus"
Officially they don't really sell army surplus in Russia, so everything that comes out from there is somewhat "illegal". So are these. In good condition, at least!

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
