    Modified Flecktarn Parka

    I never thought that they could produce something really usefull.
    But it seems the did it right this time.

    Miltec/Sturm took some normal German army parkas and modified them into smocks.
    I found out that the have a tailoring shop in Poland where they modifie and produce better qualitiy stuff than the usuall
    China-copy crap.Somewhere I saw pics of German soldiers wearing them.






    They added a new tag, but you still can see the old tag stitches:



    Here are the changes:

    The hood was removed and a fleece collar added.



    On the back they placed three cordura fabric pockets:





    Cordura on the elbows.There is also room for elbow pads:



    Two pockes on the front bottom.Looks like they used the cargo pockets from the newer Flecktarn trousers, the green is the lighter one:





    Two zipper pass throughs on the front:

    Wow, very impressive! First time I've seen a Sturm alteration that doesn't make me cringe! Laughing

    Wow! I guess they have to do something to get rid of the massive quantities sitting in warehouses now that the forces in Ukraine have their own uniforms Wink

    Sturm has for sure a big fat stock of them but with this piece they did a pretty good job.
    The spent some time to think about what they could make with the odd parkas. I usually don't
    buy from them, one time I nearly bought one Dutch greyblue navy like parka from.After I found a tiny Miltec tag under the original dutch goretex and teddyfleece liner I was pretty pissed off....
    A friend gave me this one because it was to long for him. Nothing compared to some of their crappy made ,,special,, forces smocks and other gear falling appart after the first use. Laughing
    But you never know, because they sell original surplus stuff too, not only for the surplus market also for movies etc.
