This is a great quality vintage Orebro Sport Swedish Army WWII canvas parka coat with a genuine sheepskin collar and lining. The internal print date is quite blurred but dates this to 1944, WWII Era.


This is new unworn deadstock with some small storage marks and discolouration to the body, collar and sheepskin lining. The front left (as worn) pocket bag top corner stitching has come away but this is concealed under the flap and it still functions fine. Steamed and ready for a new owner. 


The Swedes know cold. They have to: the weather conditions in Sweden are deadly serious with extreme cold weather. If a product can survive in Sweden, it will survive anywhere. So, when the Swedish Government decides it needs a coat for its army, it's going to be a great coat: the M1909 is that coat.


The M1909 is a garment that can literally stand up on its own: it's a very heavy coat and this one is approximately 3.8kg. It has a durable canvas top layer, with a double stitched lining of sheepskin. The collar is also lined, and is so large and high that the wearer almost disappears behind it. The M1909 also has cavernous, rucksack-like pockets to cater for all your survival needs. 


When you're wearing an M1909, people stop and stare: it's an intimidating piece of kit. The Swedes call them Livpals - translated as 'life fur'-, and they are indeed a coat for life.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
