Brilliant item of clothing. It's hardwearing, comfortable and blends in well in woodland. It is very warm when worn with the issue liner too. Highly recommended. - Submitted by Paul Hardy
I got 2 German parkas in flecktarn camo. I'm tall, so the 42 is long for my arms and goes well with my flecktarn pants and hats. - Submitted by United California Infantry
Although I got mine from another site, it has to be another vote for this parka - in addition to Paul Hardy's points, as a photographer I have found the pockets are all usefully sized too with plenty of room. The only things I would say is that while the jacket is reasonably showerproof, it's not waterproof as standard and if you also get the liner you'll need to allow for it when selecting a jacket size - this would most likely be the next size up. Also, if like me, you're big and tall with long arms, you may well need to consider a larger size still so you get a better fit across the shoulders and a decent arm length - this was what I found in practice. To sum up, I've worn mine + liner in sub-zero conditions for hours on end and have no hesitation in recommending this jacket. A truly excellent bit of kit - so much so, I bought another one... ;) - Submitted by Bob Meldrum
