I recieved mine in which seems like new condition. As soon as you put it on, it’s like a bear is hugging you. The fur material on the inside is great and definitely will keep you warm. Not to mention the outside is a Gor Tex like material. Excellent for the price
French have short arms

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

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.
Warm , 2 big pockets and nice
Review by Eric
Verified Buyer
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.

Review by Robert

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.
Excellent Waterproof Parka
Review by Kristopher

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.
Good kit, typical Euro fit.
Review by Dan R
Verified Buyer
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.
