The fishtail parka was first used by the United States Army in 1950 during the Korean War. Designed primarily for infantry, they were oversized as they were designed to be worn over battle dress and other layers. The 4 main styles: the EX-48, M-48, M-51 and the M-65. The M stands for military and the number for the year it was standardised. The name fishtail comes from the fish tail extension at the back designed to be tied around the soldier's legs for extra insulation and could also be folded up and popper secured.
This is a vintage US Army M-65 Extreme Cold Weather Parka complete with detachable quilted liner and snorkel hood and a heavy duty Scovill front zipper. The parka shell label dates this to 1983, the detachable liner is dated 1979 and the detachable hood from 1979 as well. Made in the USA.
