The M-1847 US Army Parka came into fruition after the end of World War II in 1945 and was first patented in 1947, thus giving it the name M-47. Production continued until the mid 1950s before it was replaced with the more modern, better known parkas such as the M51 and the M65. The M-47 takes details from the Mountain Parkas that came before it and is the direct thread that connects the mountain parkas to more modern day parkas we know and love today. This particular parka was US Air Force stock.

The jacket features an exposed button storm-flap, belt-buckle waist fastening and upper chest hand warmer pockets with two lower large patch pockets. This one is fitted with the original removable wool pile liner, attached with fully-functioning interior buttons to secure the liner.

CONDITION:
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear and small marks throughout. There is some fraying to the cuffs and hem, with some small holes and scratches to the shell. This is a great and rare bit of kit in cracking condition considering its age. Freshly steamed and ready for a new owner.
