Description / French MP Blue Goretex Jacket

The French Military Police are known as the Gendarmerie in France which translates into English as "men-at-arms" which describes the French Gendarmes role in French society. Essentially a military force tasked with police type duties, the Gendarme are a common sight all over France that the French people take pride in for the services they provide.

One of the most important services the Gendarme provide is security at outdoor spaces in France. With the climate in France being distinctly four seasons, the need for a high performance jacket for the Gendarme that was completely weather resistant. That includes wind proof, water proof, and capable of providing great warmth for the Winter months or in areas of France that experience extreme cold. These jackets deliver results for all of the Gendarme, and present each officer wearing one of these jackets as being a member of this national police force.

We have sold many jackets from virtually every European country and these are exceptionally nice jackets. They were produced with no expense spared as the materials are all first class and are considered to be the best. The zippered removable liner is quilted for extra comfort and warmth and adds to the list of pockets the outer shell provides. Every zipper is a YKK zipper, recognized around the world for being the best zippers made. Enhancements such as all seams taped to ensure water resistance and perfect stitching will ensure these jackets last a very long time.

Love This Jacket!
Review by Jeff
This is such a great jacket, especially for the colder months when it gets below 40 degrees. It's warm and really comfortable. I love the blue colors of it, especially since it doesn't look like military.
Gendarmerie Parka
Review by Slobo
This parka was used by the French Gendarmerie from the early 1990s (I have a photo of it being word by a graduating class of specialists for the Albertville Olympics) to at least the mid-2000s (mine is dated 2006 and I have photos of it being worn in Kosovo with Gendarmes supporting KFOR in Mitrovica).

It fits as expected and is quite full, as one would expect with a parka that was typically worn over a shirt ans sweater. Photo evidence I have supports its wear oer standard service dress, olive green F1 field dress, and dark blue ski overalls (known as salopettes which fortunately I was able to acquire).

Irt is extremely well mades, of commercial quality. It began to be replaced c. 2004 with a newer goretex parka with the advent of new Gendarme uniforms, to include the MP pants also available here.
"excellent!"
Review by Michael
Everything is exceptional about this coat. Stitching, quality of material, features, water proofing, etc. I have had numerous compliments from people who know what quality is. In fact, they wanted to know where I purchased it so they could get one for themselves. I have worn this in single degree weather on my bike and its has kept me very warm and dry. Almost to heavy to be worn in a car. 52 L fits my 5' 2". 160 lb frame. Lengths perfect but bit wide in the torso. No problem since I layer. I Highly recommend this coat for someone who spends a lot of time outside. The reflectors that can be hidden are first class!
Buy This!!
Review by David
This is an awesome jacket. It does not look surplus to me at all -- which is good if you are buying to wear around town and don't want to wear camo!! In terms of quality, I would match this up to any of the high end brands.

With liner, it has the bulk and weight of a ski jacket. I would imagine you could wear this is pretty harsh conditions.

Mine was brand new. I cannot say enough good things about this product.
Crazy Not to Get One
Review by Jason
I couldn't believe the great quality of this jacket. At $49 it is as good or better than my North Face jacket. I am 5' 10" 190 pounds. I ordered XL. Fit great. Arm length was just right. If you have long arms these may be a little short in the sleeve for you.
Grab One While They Last
Review by Frank
Received the jacket in the mail today. Outstanding quality especially at the price. If your considering on purchasing one, get it before they are gone. Goretex jacket at this price is unheard of.
Well made Gortex Jacket
Review by Beanster
Without a doubt this jacket is a tremendous value for those who know about the value of Goretex clothing. In addition to the advantage of Goretex this jacket has other advancements over other similar jackets. A zip out liner,for cold rain and or snow,coupled with numerous pockets and "hidden" yellow reflective panels for safety,a hide away hood,and heavy zipper that's backed up with a storm flap with snaps-makes this jacket ideal for riding or walking during bad weather.You will not find a better jacket for this price point! I'm 5'8 150lbs and T50 fitted me well.......
These are a rare find, warm& looks great!
Review by Joe
Just got in mail today, these jackets are a real find for surplus unissued!
Metric sizing pay attention to so in doubt GP next size bigger as I have to reorder mine now. Note: size T50 equivalent to men's large - a very close fit 44to 46chest so I gotta go bigger for room to wear more than T-shirt under. These are very nice & top quality as well. Gore-Tex at this price I had to move quick before they sellout, as I've recently seen online. By the way - customer service dept. Good at assisting my needs so.... Get yours,, look sharp, warm, waterproof, Price!! You won't find better. t
Thanks!
