We have no idea about the official nomenclature of this jacket, but it wipes the floor with fairy-like Western creations and keeps the wearer warm even if he'd have to shake hands and make eye contact with Angela Merkel herself. One-off lot, buy now or die trying!

Not just a jacket

This beautiful jacket features a fixed fur collar, hood and thick lining, with windstopper flap on the inside. The top of this flap can be raised up to cover the wearer's face if he's particularly unsightly. There are also snow locks hidden inside the sleeves, because it would be embarrasing to openly show them. There's also two belt loops to run your favourite belt through them. This makes even a potato sack shaped user a prime specimen of his kind.

The top material is of the familiar Soviet type, i.e. rough quality cotton canvas. those who mock and fear cotton do not understand its enigmatic national-historical virtues. Under the cotton top layer there's the padding material, which is mostly MORE COTTON. Under this the lining, which is COTTON FLANNEL.

This jacket will stay up on its own when placed on the floor.

Washing

The jacket is too bulky to be stuffed inside a washing machine.

Size info

First the Russian GOST size, then recommended height & chest circumference in centimetres. The sleeve length of these is just a tad more generous than usually, that's why our centimetre sizes for height are a bit bigger than usually.

Condition

Unissued, but stored for a while.

Availability

Just a handful, with no more in sight!

Speculation on the type of the jacket, first i must say i did not get my piece from leka, and neither is it entirely identical. The jacket in question is likely a variant of the soviet m88 afghanka winter jacket. My jacket variant has additional pockets on the sleeves as well as the upper chest, my jacket variant may have been an officers one while these leka ones are normal trooper ones?



The jacket itself looks good for soviet surplus and it will hold off the cold. But you don't want to wear it with less than -15C outside, at least not with the liner attached. Leka did not mention the weight, while i have not weighed my piece, i'd guess it's 2-3kg of soviet industrial textiles.

Edit: After having another look it's likely possible that this is not an afghanka variant at all. Considering the manufacturing date in the display pictures this jacket is likely some interim variant made between Chechen and the afghan wars. If you looked at enough pictures of the later conflict i'd bet money you could see some motorstrelki or spetsnaz with jackets close to this.
