A true best-of-class parka, this jacket is everything you hope it’ll be and so much more. Our fishtail parka comes with an impressively durable, hydrophobic tri-blend shell fabric of polyester, cotton, and nylon. The shell fabric alone is worth discussing. Super supple, it’s amazingly soft yet dense enough for water to simply bead and bounce off, never congregating. A removable quilted and hooded body liner with wool blend rib knit cuffs can instantly serve as a 2nd jacket should weather dictate. Taking many of its cues from the original M-56 Parka, many of its construction hallmarks are faithfully embraced while at the same time taking it forward where modern materials can provide a better solution. From the deep 2-ply fleece lined and shell backed envelop pockets, the 180-gram polyfil S-quilted detachable liner, to the heavy-duty molded center front zipper. Every detail painstakingly considered and built to last. This is our most protective garment for the elements.
