The UK Immigration Service Parka is an excellent parka for those who desire a water resistant, breathable, and comfortable parka. When the UK Immigration Service was renamed UK Visas and Immigration, a large number of these unissued parkas were offered for sale as surplus. Knowing the value in a brand new Gore-Tex like parka, we purchased as many of these parkas as we could find and now have them for sale.
There are many aspects to this parka that make it a good value and an item of interest. The first thing to point out is the material used to construct the parka is a high quality fabric known as T-Tex. T-Tex fabric is water-proof, wind-proof, sweat-permeable and breathable. This makes this parka an excellent choice for protection in any windy, rainy, or cold weather day. Using T-Tex fabric allows the parka to provide superior protection without the need for thick inside liners or other layering as the characteristics of the T-Tex fabric make such things unnecessary.
One of the more interesting features of this parka is the front and rear "UK Immigration Service" agency badges. You can easily hide them by folding them up into the specially designed Velcro sealed pockets or display them proudly as you wear the parka. The fact that the parka has badges that represent a foreign government immigration service makes this parka collectible, suitable for possible Halloween costume, and a very interesting conversation piece when you wear it.
as described, it performs very well and the quality of craftsmanship is exquisite. I had the opportunity to test it in windy condition and rain. It is doing its job as describe and looks very "official " Strongly recommend it, especially when On sale.
