Jeez.., I don’t even know how to start this rap! Having long been in the alpine equipment manufacturing business myself, I know what it takes to put together a piece like this! This, BRAND-NEW unit, consists of basically three pieces. A heavy, fully lined, cotton duck outer coat, with a huge faux-fur collar, and large, 1.75” wooden toggle closures (to easily operate with cold hands in gloves or mitts), with a huge, inset pocket, with big flap, on either side. Then it has a matching, detachable, cotton duck with faux-fur lining, hood. But what makes this truly the ne plus ultra of cold-weather parkas is the thick, quilted polyester filled, cotton-cased, detachable lining! The lining is sort of like a shin-length vest. (No sleeves). And, as the Italian designers understood only too well, standard zippers and velcro closures don’t work worth a shit in snow and the extreme cold, and therefore all closures and connectors are a over-dimensional, using an offset #8 delrin 2-way zipper, along with toggles, buttons, and loops! The wrists have strap and slider closures; the hood has a draw-cord. You may wear this fine garment, without hood and liner, with the panache of a duster. And when it get’s deadly cold, button in the lining, attach the hood, draw it all tight, and you’ll be among arctic cognoscenti, for real. These arctic parkas were designed to save your life, and may be used for sleeping in. The sizes run large. Just tell us how big you are, and we’ll probably be able to fit you.
