    About this item

    An original 1971 dated Canadian Army Extreme Cold Weather Parka in a size extra large.

    These parkas were designed to be worn in very cold temperatures and are extremely well built. Featuring an olive coloured nylon outer shell and nylon lining which has a thick intermediate layer, creating a very warm jacket which is also highly waterproof. The coat features an integral hood which has a fur trim to the edge and is lined with a wool shirting material as illustrated in the last picture. A drawstring is fitted around the mouth of the hood and features plastic stoppers. There is another drawstring located to the bottom hem. The front of the coat fastens with a heavy duty brass zipper whichhas a pull string fitted to the slider. The pockets feature the turn back flaps also employed on British military garments such as the ventile smock and ventile parka. The chest pockets are small and desgined to hold a magazine each. 

    Inside the jacket the original label is still present and bears the title 'Parkas, Men's Cotton and Nylon' along with the maker's name of North Peerless Garments Ltd. The date is marked as July 1971 and the size is stated as extra large extra long. 

    The coat is designed to fit an extra large size of up to 6' 2" and a 45" to 48" chest and when laid flat it measures - 

    Chest - 32 1/2"
    Inside arm - 23 1/2"
    Outside arm - 25 1/2"
    Shoulders - 22"
    Length at back - 32"

    The coat is in good condition with some signs of previous wear and use. It displays well and is totally wearable with some limited staining etc. Please study the pictures and bear in mind that it is a vintage, pre-worn item which may have small issues commensurate with age. 

    A nice original early 1970s military parka which is seriously warm!
