This Vintage 1970s Swedish Military Snow Parka was made to be worn as an outer layer in snowy regions. The jacket has two large front pockets and a drawstring at the waist to tighten the fit. The hood is large enough to be worn over a helmet and the jacket has a double layer behind the buttons to make sure that the cold can't break through. This jacket is very wide and intended to be worn as a protective layer above other clothing. Made in Sweden.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear and abrasion. There is a small mark to the upper left back of the jacket (as worn) as well as small marks to the lower left pocket. Freshly laundered 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, 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.
