Italian Guardia di Finanza Parka

(11)
The Italian Guardia di Finanza Parkas we have were originally issued to the Italian Guardia di Finanza which is an Italian law enforcement agency. In Rome it is said the three words any business owner fears the most are in fact Guardia di Finanza as they are like the IRS but armed with guns. It is apparent from the level of quality of this parka that the Guardia di Finanza is a well funded organization. The parka consists of a water resistant outer shell, very similar to Gore-Tex but is an Italian designed material surface treatment. Secured by two front zippers is the fantastic liner, which can be worn as a light weight jacket by itself on days that the full parka is not needed.

Details

We have bought and sold in excess of 100,000+ military jackets and parkas. This gives us a good perspective on what makes a great parka. This Italian Guardia di Finanza parka would rank in the top three overall best parkas we've ever had.

What makes this parka so impressive? Well start with the style, which is clearly Italian from the sleek lines and cut of the jacket. This was not designed by some one looking for a purely functional parka they wanted the Guardia agents to look sharp. From the assortment of zippered pockets to the way the liner attaches to the shell, this jacket is the perfect mix of form and function.

Features:
  • Water Resistant Outer Shell
  • Zippered Removable Liner
  • Interior Left Velcro Closed Pocket
  • Stowable Hood
  • Removable Collar
  • Buttons are Guardia di Finanza Emblems
Specifications:
  • Grey Color of the Italian Guardia di Finanza

These jackets have been around on the surplus market for awhile now. KeepShooting has offered them in the past. I have been wearing of these coats on and off for a little over a year. Like a lot of surplus coats this one has a removable liner. Most of these coats with a removable liner suffer from the problem that the shell is too large when the liner is removed. However, this coat uses an unusual system to account for the difference is size when the liner is out. If you look at the front of the coat when the liner is installed you will see not one but three zippers going up the middle of the coat. The middle zipper is the liner itself while the two outer zippers keep the liner in place. When the liner is removed the two remaining halves of the outer zipper come together to remove the slack and reduce the size of the coat. The liner system works well; and as a result the coat still functions well and looks good as a spring or fall jacket. The liner has great insulation and is very warm for the Winter months. The shell of the coat blocks the cold winds of Winter very well.

This coat also has a lot of pockets. There are six pockets on the front of the coat. Besides the typical hand pockets, and inside pockets, there are two large front chest pockets; which have zippers under the fabric where the rain cape ends. Overall this coat does look sharp, the build quality is excellent and the coat is well designed. You can tell that controlling costs was not a concern when the coat was made. However, after wearing the coat for awhile I do have two minor problems with the coat; neither of which are deal breakers for me. First, in the roll up hood there is some sort of waterproofing. Over the years the waterproofing on the hood had begun to degrade and become sticky. I was able to clean most of the tackiness off with a citrus based cleaner; and then I used a silicone spray on the hood and it is no longer sticky. The second problem I have with the coat is that the sleeves on the cuffs of the arms are a little narrow when the liner is in; and I don’t think I have especially large hands or wrists. Both of the problems I have encountered are minor for me and overall this is an excellent coat for the price given it’s quality of construction and three season functionality.
