Italian Army Arctic Parka

Was: $199.00
Now: $99.00
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! These arctic parkas were designed to save your life, and may be used for sleeping in. XXL only. weighs about 8.5 lbs

I am in Bagdad, KY. One night, this last January, in a heavy ice storm, at zub-zero farenheit, I heard my transformer explode on the electrical pole, as the sun was setting. I had recently purchased your life-saving (as I found out) Italian Army Arctic Parka. Living in a rural area, I could still see light's in the distance, so the reality that I was the only farm without power, with the darkness setting in, I grabbed my newly purchased coat, brought the Great Dane's in from there now un-heated mud-room, said a prayer & fired up the hearth. It was so very cold, that I have no doubt that if I had not had the Italian coat, I would have nodded off to the Abyss. Being 6'1'' I could still tuck my legs up & stay warm inside the Arctic coat, even though my house temperature was in the single digit's. Needless to say, The Dane's were amused at my predicament, & the next day Shelby Energy did yeoman's work with 6X's to bring me back on line. Deutsche-Optik staff, especially The Big Man, Thank You for your prowess in the realm of excellence, that is more than you may realize. Just by y'all being y'all, you saved someone's life, wholeheartedly. I owe ya!!!! P.S.: Great Dane's love & respect the dog whistle you sell. Again..... excellence on your part. Good Day

Bad grammar be damned, I forgot to add to my Italian Arctic Parka review, that the large hood was vital for my survival, as was the thick, removable liner. As a big man, I was able to pull the hood completely over my head, which produced a warm cocoon effect, due to one being able to stay toasty in the sub-zero's. Basically your breath keeps you warm & the liner keeps you sweat free. I'm not prejudiced by being 1/2 Italian, so forgetta'bout it! Deutsche-Optik, Chris Cornett approves this review for submission to the Big Man, for his discretion & rebuttal to the frustrated ice fishermen's review who needs a different colored liner to stay warm. WTF is he fishing for? Demented Elf indeed! Personally I like staying warm, fashion be damned. What a maroon....
Cheer's Y'all!!!
This is the Real Deal. Ice Fish and leave the Shack at home. Beats leaving It at the bottom of "The Fishing Hole" come Spring. When Your Chum's are starting to stutter from that Thermia thing you might want to throw a "Rub" like, If they had thrown another hundred or two at Their Winter Wear they could have gotten the model with a bigger "Logo". The white liner is a bit of a "poser", lot like a Deer's Tail and I give a majority of today's Hunters half a Star because they missed 4 and just winged the 5th. May try Dying with a paint brush one side OD Green, the other side, never know when going "White Out" is prudent. The Hood is meant to fit a Helmit, so learn to sew or look like a "Demented Elf" which I kinda like. Its also a great place to warm "Noon's Lunch".
