The French MVP CCE Parka is one of the finest military issue jackets in the world. On the surplus market, this jacket would rank number one in virtually every criteria used to judge jackets.
Top 5 Reasons Why This Jacket Is The Best:
Condition - We purchased these in the original factory boxes. They sat sealed in an army depot for a few years, and were never worn or taken out of the boxes prior to our purchase. Too often military jackets show signs of use, repairs, or other defects. We have never been offered unissued military jackets in the more than a decade of buying this type of product.
Sizing - With military issue goods, the sizing is often too small as they are designed for recruits who are generally in their late teens. These French CCE Parkas were designed for the French Foreign Legion, so they run large to accommodate the larger framed Foreign Legion soldiers. This makes these jackets ideal for the American market as we tend to need big sized clothes. There are no small sizes in this lot!
Performance - The French M.V.P. material used to make this jacket performs to military standards for water resistance, breathability, and warmth. There are two hip pockets and two hidden pockets to cut down on the chances for leaks in the jacket. All of the seams are taped and the hood stows perfectly. If you are in an extreme cold environment you can zip the jacket up to provide mouth and nose coverage. Simply put there is no jacket that out performs this one.
Style - This jacket has a very sleek stylish look to it that is distinctively European. When you wear this jacket you will have people tell you it looks really great and will want to know where you got it. We wore a few samples out to test them and every time we had someone want to know where to buy it. It is cut well, and the French CCE pattern is very appropriate for the woods or the streets. Camo clothing is making a huge comeback fashion wise, and this jacket is extremely popular right now in Europe and Japan.
Military Unit Association - This isn't a regular infantry soldiers jacket. These are standard issue to the French Foreign Legion which is known around the world as an elite military organization. Governments do not like elite troops uniforms and gear to be sold to the public, so this jacket is sure to become a collectible once our supplies are gone.
