This US Army parka was originally issued to the 10th mountain division in the 1940s WW2 era. One side is green for woodland and the other white for use in snowy terrain.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion, discolouration and some marks throughout. The original belt buckle and hood string are missing, and some buttons have been replaced. There is a split (7cm) to the back seam, and a stitch repair below the pocket and darn stitch repair to the bottom button. This parka has bags of character, steamed and ready for a new owner.
All our vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

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.
