Details

The French Microporous Parka is a heavy duty parka that is suitable for cold weather climates. With the button in fleece liner, the French Army has used this parka as their standard issue parka for exercises as far north as the Arctic Circle. This means no matter where you are in North America, including Alaska, this parka is designed and built to keep you warm during the Winter months.

WIth an exterior shell made from a Gore-Tex like material, this parka resists water easily yet remains breathable for comfort. There are ventilation holes in the arm pit area of both sleeves to allow your body to better regulate your internal temperature while wearing this parka. This is important so that as your body sweats that excess moisture from your body can be controlled. You will be more comfortable, drier, and more warm due to this feature on the parka. There are relief ports in the hood where your ears would be located to help make it easier to work outside in a team with the small ports being just big enough to allow sound waves in but keep out the cold due to the nature of their design.

With each parka there is an included button in fleece liner that will provide additional warmth. When you are outside in temperatures that do not require the fleece liner, it is easy to remove making this parka more of a three season parka. With the liner removed this parka makes a great outdoor parka for the fall or rainy season as the water resistant exterior is superior to virtually all other similar parkas. There are also three large exterior pockets including one on the sleeve that make transporting your essentials easy and best of all the parka will keep them safe and dry.

    A great "good for any weather" jacket. The arms are a little bit short on me, but I wear a 35inch sleeve.

  2. Quality is unreal. review by James on 2/5/2017

    First impression on opening was no odor and appeared brand new. Was not in a separate package, but I couldn't discern from brand new. Coat is not overly bulky or heavy at all. Seems to be very warm, but haven't tried it in rain yet. I'm sure it will repel water. I had looked at these before and there weren't any large enough for me, but I had bought the gore tex French Foreign Legion coat in 120L and it fit very well. This one in the same size is slightly snugger, perhaps only due to the liner, but still comfortable. It is not nearly as stiff as Foreign Legion gore tex parka and is more comfortable. I like the pockets very well and that is where a stocking hat and pair of gloves go to be prepared. I am 250 pounds and 5'9'' and 48" chest and it is a good fit for me. By the way the lined hood is very warm and comfortable also and makes you feel like you are ready for Eskimo weather.

  3. Warm , 2 big pockets and nice review by Eric on 3/6/2016

    Its warm I have been wearing it with a Tshirt in 20f weather. The main pockets fit a 380 auto perfectly with my hand inside. The outer fabric is soft unlike most goretex type fabrics. The fleece liner is removable and the hood is also lined no cold neck , Definitely a great buy. Made in 2003 but still like new . left sleeve has small pocket , and velcro patch on chest in center.
    As with most European zippers the tabs are opposite , L/H.

  5. real nice. review by Robert on 1/12/2016

    Finally getting some weather over here (autumn was very warm this year) so was able to run it when its cold. The high collar / hood does great at blocking snow squalls, also the lining goes the full length into the hood. The left sleeve pocket is easy enough to get to and wide enough to store two cans of dip, side by side without any stacking. As another mentioned the sleeves do run a little short, I am 5'8" (about 33" sleeve for dress shirts)and the sleeve of the 112L hits right at the wrist, meaning any shorter would be no good, as it can ride up a little when shoveling snow. Long story short, you'd have to put in a serious effort to find something better for less money.

  6. Excellent Waterproof Parka review by Kristopher on 1/8/2016

    I've have this parka for a month now and am very happy with it. It appeared to be new and unissued. I have worn it outside in cold and rainy weather several times, and it has always kept me warm and dry. The fleece liner is very cozy, and the shell is definitely waterproof - water beads up instead of soaking into the fabric. I am 5'8", 180 lbs, and the 120L XL/XXL size fits around me perfectly. The hood seems a bit large, but I suspect it is designed to fit over a hat or helmet; regardless, the hood does have drawstrings, so it can be cinched down. The sleeves are just the right length for me. The parka seems long, extending about halfway down my thigh. I like this, as it keeps more of me warm and dry, but it might get in the way if you were working outside and needed to bend over or down frequently. I find this parka to be a great value for the price, and a great alternative to the camo options if you need a more low-key waterproof parka.

  7. Good kit, typical Euro fit. review by Dan R on 12/27/2014

    Quality

    Shell: heavier than Goretex. Sleeves ran a little short which is typical Euro fit for me so ordered one size larger. Left hand zipper. Stiff material but hope will loosen up when laundered. Pockets are not lined.
    Lining: Man made materials. Warm. Sleeves too short for me. This is not a modular system so no utility when separate from shell as no way to close up the front.

    Excellent customer service when asked for a swap to a larger size.

    I just received my parka today and I cannot believe how sweet it is. If you are looking for a nice winter coat and don't want to break the bank, this is it! The fur liner inside is as comfy and warm as it gets. I got mine on sale for 40 bucks but even at 60, you will have a top notch coat. I think I'm gonna grab another for my dad for Christmas. Can't beat it!

    I just got this jacket today, and it is totally worth every penny! It appears brand new, and it is really warm. I've paid more at a box store and gotten less.
