The US Military APECS Parka is the US Military All Purpose Environmental Clothing System Parka which is designed to be an improvement over the current US Military ECWCS parka. With a focus on providing enhanced performance along with a lighter weight, less bulky, and lower noise generation the results have been the nearly complete military wide adoption of the APECS parka. What was achieved by the design of the APECS Parka is a lightweight parka capable of dealing with extreme cold or wet weather in all environmental conditions - something no other parka of this style has achieved.
When selecting a new parka for use outdoors you would do well by choosing the APECS Parka. The cut of the jacket gives it the appearance of a top-of-the-line outdoors parka that would cost considerably more if it had a "brand name" on it. With the Genuine Gore-Tex construction which includes taped seams you have the added benefit of the lifetime warranty W.L. Gore provides for performance of Gore-Tex. The unique and current MultiCam camouflage pattern does not immediately evoke a military reaction as most civilians are not familiar with this style of camouflage due to the recent adoption of MultiCam by the US military. Add all of these features together and include things like the multiple pockets and stowable hood and you'll see why we recommend this parka for those who demand the best.
