Description / French Foreign Legion Gore-Tex Jacket

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.

well made and good quality will definitely use
Review by Jon Savage
arrived in brand new condition in new packaging. love the fit XL true to size. Im 5-10 and 215lbs. plenty of room very comfy.
Jacket is well constructed and very nice looking
Review by Ed
This jacket is a US size large. I normally wear a US large. My shirt sleeve is 33-34” US. The jacket is slightly large on me however By adjusting the velcro adjacent to the cuff openings and tightening up the inside draw strings it will be fine. It will fit nicely over my wool sweater in the winter. It will also perform well as a rugged duty rain and hunting jacket. Or just everyday use
It is exceptionally well manufactured. Remember that the zipper is different than US zipper but easy to adapt to. I anticipate purchasing more, one for my son and another as a spare.
Best rain jacket I own
Review by Mike
I bought 1 of these back in 2014 (I think) later got the polar fleece to go with It. After wearing a few times including a nor’easter. I bought a 2nd as a spare, it’s still in the closet. I work outside in all weather and use a lot. It’s been awesome. rain, wind cold (with the fleece jacket) pockets are in the right places. The zipper takes some getting used to, it’s backwards to a USA men’s zipper.
Very good jacket
Review by Richard
well made
Well worth the money
Review by Tom
Great heavy jacket. Not too bulky. Material is almost like canvas. I was worried about size because milsurp tends to run small but as in description, it is true to size. I normally wear a 46L coat but would usually order a 2XL in military surplus. The XL fit me perfect. Normal jacket/coats of this type at normal stores would be 2x price and 1/2 the quality.
Fantastic authentic Jacket

French Foreign Legion Gore-Tex Jacket
Review by Billy P.
My jacket arrived quickly and is everything the description says. This is a BRAND NEW jacket and is on the large size which leaves enough room for something underneath in the extreme cold. Looks great and has a very nice front closure! Definitely worth the price!
Excellent jacket
Review by Jay
Very well made. Looks like it would withstand a hurricane. Just what you need in Seattle. Just might be too nice to wear in the woods. I wear a 46 coat and the XL fits fine with room for under layers.
Serious gear for serious work
Review by James
6'1", 240 lbs., and the XL is easily roomy enough for a heavyweight fleece and down vest underneath. We farm, and we live in an area known for getting torrential rains and high winds when it storms, and those storms have been getting progressively worse each year, but I digress. This jacket has been through it all and it has been flawless. The adjustable hood allows you to fully extend it and hunker down in the really bad driving stuff, or you can quickly and easily restrict it to give you better peripheral vision and hearing for hunting or less severe conditions. The pockets are big and roomy enough to accommodate even the largest artic-type mittens, and the coverage is good enough to keep your rear end dry if you don't have the pants. The storm flaps are effective and simple, and being able to self store the hood is especially handy. Overall, and for the price that KS offered it, I can't imagine a better value. Now to find the pants. As a breathable storm shell I've seen similar products sell for well over $200, so this is a virtual steal. Also, mine was brand new, never been issued, first quality, not a second.
