The US Military Extreme Cold Weather Parka Gen III is the ultimate cold weather parka. The US Army spent a fortune on developing the Generation III Extended Cold Weather Clothing System which this parka was born from. This mission critical system has been battle tested and combat proven, with soldiers capable of sustained operations in extreme cold weather conditions.
The US Military Extreme Cold Weather Parka Gen III is a current issue item, with soldiers actively using it in some of the harshest winter climates. WIth the seven layer system, the parka would be the final layer that is outermost and visible to the elements. Previous systems would dictate that the parka would need to be heavy and cumbersome, which is not the case with the Generation III ECW Parka. Whether you wear all seven layers or just use the parka, you'll be incredibly warm and will be able to move effortlessly in the extreme cold.

I bought this after purchasing the GEN 3 cold weather pants when they were on sale for $15. I am wearing this jacket right now, and it is warm, but breathable warm. I don't feel like I'm sweating or anything. With winter fast approaching, I would highly recommend this.
My size to consider when making a decision. 6', 240 lbs, 48-50" chest. Ordered an XL and size was perfect. Good range of motion in the shoulders. Donned with a shirt and sweater vest and did not feel in any way tight of restricting.
Quality - Used but in fantastic shape. No rips of tears. Overall looks like light use. Did have a couple of stains but quick use of a Tide pen had those vanish. This jacket feels warm and had a big smile with this online purchase.
Mine looks like it is brand new. I don't believe it was ever issued and if so well taken care of. Great coat and one of the warmest coats I have ever owned. Do yourself a favor and order one before they are all gone.
