Swedish M90 Parka

The Swedish M90 Parka has been the standard issue parka of the Swedish military since it was first introduced in 1990. Soldiers in the Swedish army operate in cold weather climates year round including exercises in the areas of the Arctic Circle. With over two decades of proven performance in the cold, the Swedish M90 can be counted on to keep you warm in any part of North America during the cold Winter months.

The Swedish M90 Parka is an excellent example of Scandanavian military design. With the unique requirements of the military in Sweden due to the geographical location of their country, the Swedish Army needs to have the very best cold weather gear. The proximity of Sweden to some of the coldest places on Earth mean that each soldier in the Swedish army needs to be prepared for combat in sub-zero temperatures.

When the Swedish M90 Parka was designed, it was built with the intention of it being the outer most layer of cold weather clothing. With the M90 being made from a heavy weight cotton and featuring a quilted liner the ability of the M90 to keep you warm is very impressive. In addition to the insulated characteristics of the M90 it also happens to be on the light weight spectrum of military parkas. While this may not seem to be an important attribute right now, imagine wearing the M90 and being on patrol where you are carrying a full combat set.

Bring ONN the SNOWW!
Swedish M90 Parka: I love this jacket already. The material is heavy yet flexible. The outer shell is similar to a Spanish M65 Field Jacket I have, but thicker and tougher, which is expected since it's meant to be warmer. It's also slightly darker in color. The inner liner is permanently sewn in, but it is similar to the liner in my M65 as far as look and feel. I got the XXL 170cm x 85cm 5'5"+, even though I'm 5'9". I picked it that way because my guess is that the XXL 180cm x 85cm 5'9"+ would have been down to my knees, and I wanted it to be a couple inches above the knees. Jackets that long bother me. The zipper is nice and chunky [nylon teeth not metal] and the hidden hood when it is unfurled is very functional and fits well over a winter hat. The POCKETS are enormous! That's my favorite thing about this jacket. The top of the pocket actually folds underneath the flap when you go to button it down. This helps keep what you store the the pockets warm. I plan on keeping my left and right glove, one in each pocket, so they can stay warm until I need to use them. The pockets are so big, I doubt I will even notice the gloves in there. The specific jacket I got has a small hole on back near the shoulder but that was patched up quite well, so no complaints there. Also, the bottom slider of the zipper [it has a dual-slider zipper] has a busted attachment for the slider handle, so it's essentially inoperable. Not a big deal though cause I'm not a big fan of dual zippers, so I will just keep the bottom slider all the way down and stationary. I have no plans of moving it anyway, so no big deal. One last item to review, the ARMS seem short on this jacket compared to most jackets. I have read other reviewers say the same. Honestly, I LIKE that about this jacket, because it allows one to wear bulky gloves with bulky/long wrists without interfering with unnecessarily long jacket cuffs. So, that's actually a big plus for me. All and all, $25 for this parka is well worth it. I hope this item stays around for a long time, because I will most likely be buying another one down the road!

Great Jacket
I bought this jacket because the price seemed right. It is a great budget addition to a go bag, or it works as a jacket to keep in the trunk for emergencies.

Alright!
My wife made fun of me when I got this and the matching pants, which I considered a great deal and excellent full-on winter kit. I like to cold-weather camp, but the truth is, I don't go so much anymore. So, these sat in my closet until one cold winter day I come home from work and my wife is hiding in the arbor vitae hedge wearing my Swedish winter set and she jumps out and says "Suprise! Swedish Wednesday!" Oh boy, now what, I thought... but when we got inside, she says, "you know, these are really warm!" and to my surprise, she's not wearing anything underneath. Thanks KeepShooting!

High quality jacket and lighter than expected
Great jacket for hiking in the fall or dry winter months. It's warm and light, but the outer shell is not water proof.

Lightweight warmth
As soon as I put this on, I was amazed by how light it is and by how warm it made me, though I will echo the other reviewer who mentioned that the shell isn't windproof, and I doubt it's very water resistant. If you wear this under a shell, that will be no problem, however, and you'll be ready for sub-freezing temperatures. This would be my first choice for camping, especially for backpacking, as the warmth-weight ratio is up there with coats that people pay a LOT of money for. One final note, it is quite long: I ordered the Medium Plus size, I'm 5'11" and 190 lbs, and it reaches almost to my knees. It doesn't usually get in the way, though, due to how light it is, and that the zipper only goes to about the belt line.
