Each Czech military M85 parka offered by Keepshooting.com is an authentic piece of Czech military surplus. These parkas were originally designed for and used by members of the army of the Czech Republic, which consists of the general staff of the Czech armed forces, joint forces and support and training forces. Because we cannot verify that these parkas were unissued, we have to assume that they are used even though many of them appear to be like new. As such, each parka is in excellent condition and is free from the typical rips, tears, stains and scents that are characteristic of military surplus. In other words, these parkas stand ready to shield you, Santa and anyone else from the harsh winter winds. If you are looking for a military surplus parka that does not look like a military surplus parka, consider Czech M85.
The Czech military M95 parka is a winter weather parka that consists of two layers. The outer layer is characterized by an olive drab shell that is constructed from a cotton/polyester blend and serves as a buffer for the elements. This outer layer boasts a number of features that include a full-zip front with a button storm flap, a turn-down collar and epaulets. Additionally, there are two slash "hand warmer" pockets as well as two button-flap pockets on the breast. The inner layer is a synthetic fur liner that is buttoned into the outer shell and provides for warmth. The only noteworthy aspect regarding the inner layer is the presence of soft elastic cuffs that serve to keep the elements from entering the sleeves of the parka. Joining the button-in synthetic fur lining is a button-in synthetic fur collar, fully capable of rendering scarves useless.
I bought one of these parkas and saw that I really liked it so I ordered another to keep in the trunk of my car. The first one was like new, but some of the buttons on the liner were in the wrong place. Easy fix. The second one didn't have that problem, but the liner seems to have show some prior use. That one will probably go in the trunk.
The liners make the coat super warm. They work just fine without the liner too.
The color is more OD green than in the picture.
TIP: the fur collar will fit in one breast pocket and the removable hood will fit in the other breast pocket. It's a tight fit for both but they do fit. That's how I store them. Haven't had to use them yet. Also, a good treatment with some Camp Dry would be a good thing. That's what I plan to do.
I don't really like the zipper, but it does look about like the zipper on the old London Fog coat that lasted so long, so maybe it's fine. Something just seems a little weak about the zipper, but most folks say that it looks like a good strong zipper to them. Maybe it's just the wimpy zipper pull that I don't like. I can probably replace the pull with some cordage or something.
But overall I think this is a GREAT deal on a good, general purpose work coat that, aside of the OD green color, doesn't look too military.
Excellent material quality - durable and comfortable - although my particular issue was used with torn nylon(?) cords towards the hem of the coat. Warm even without the liner attached.
Purchased at $14.95 USD. Would do it again for a hopefully better issue, but that's wishful thinking!
Order your actual size.I purchased two,both arrived in new/unused condition. Total satisfaction.
