Quick Overview

The Swedish civil defense parka is a winter weather parka that consists of two layers. The outer layer is characterized by powder blue shell that is constructed from a cotton/polyester blend and serves as a buffer for the elements. This outer layer boasts a number of features that include a button-up front, button-adjustable cuffs and an interior drawstring at the waist. Additionally, there are two oversized, button-flap storage pockets that provide a wealth of space of just about anything you could dream of carrying on your person. The inner layer is a synthetic liner that is buttoned into the outer shell and designed to provide warmth. Together, the two layers provide for a heavyweight parka that is truly capable of providing real warmth.

Details

These parkas would have originally been stored by the military or some other governmental response agency and issued to citizens as needed during civil defense emergencies. Though we cannot confirm that these parkas have never been issued, each is in excellent shape and is free from the rips, tears, stains and scents that typically plague military surplus items.  Stand out and stay warm by picking up one of these high quality Swedish civil defense parkas today.

During the 20th century, civil defense programs became more and more widespread. With the threat of nuclear war growing, many nations began building civil defense programs that involved principles typically found in emergency operations (prevention, mitigation, preparation, response, evacuation and recovery) to protect ordinary citizens from military attacks, and later, non-military emergencies and disasters. These parkas are just one of the many components that went into Sweden's civil defense program, or what they call totalförsvar.

Good as a utility, but isn't too pretty a sight
Don't be fooled by the image, the color isn't quite it what it seems. If you need to survive an extremely cold winter, this is your jacket, but don't buy it for any other reason.

Very good value, tough coat, but is baby blue color
Size Large fit me OK and I'm 6'4". Sleeves are just a bit short for me. Coat is very long, falling somewhere above my knees. Outer material is densely woven and tough. I guess this was designed as a tough cold weather work coat, and that is my intended use.

update
I got this coat last year. Ive worn it on some bitterly cold, windy days, in sub zero temps. It is warm and you cannot feel the wind through it. Ive had customers ask about it when I wear it on service calls. My mother in law has a house keeper, who picked it up when it was in her way cleaning, and she remarked how heavy and warm it was and wanted to know where to get one, so I ordered her one.
Get one of these babies while they are in stock, this is awesome survival gear.
