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 lightweight water resistant cotton/nylon shell fabric. It’s very durable yet nearly half the weight of the original from 1956. Removable quilted body liner with rib knit cuffs and separate wool hood liner allow for greater flexibility of wearing. Our fur is fake, although a very close imitation. Coyotes are beautiful and very much against our principles to use in garment production. Nearly every other construction hallmark closely aligns with the original M-56 Parka. From the multi-paneled hood to the copper wire framing the funnel hood opening, to the deep 2-ply fleece lined pocket bags. Every detail painstakingly considered and built to last.
