    Dutch Gore-Tex Jacket?

    Post by Gaust on Wed Mar 14, 2012 7:30 pm

    I picked up a Dutch gore-tex jacket along with a Dutch woodland and desert shirt off eBay. Do the gore-tex jackets have a hood? If they do does anyone have a source for them? If not what was used to stay dry?

    GOODMORNING!

    Great Dutch gear.
    This is called the parka in Dutch .Almost a obsolete item.
    The parka has got a outer from a cotton mix.
    Then a weth weather gore tex liner [removeble]
    then a warm layer [removeble]
    The rain head was a loose item.
    The parka was isseud around 1992/3 the it was a revolution because Gore tex made a lot of noice and with a outer from cotton .There was no sound.

    Hello Jeroen and thanks for your reply! It's just past midnight here. This parka in the picture has a permanent gore tex lining sewn in with taped seams. I also have a second parka like the one you are refering to. It has a removeable gore tex liner and warm layer. I do not have either items for the second parka. Is the "rain head" a hood that buttons into the parka? The collar on the back of both parkas have buttons for what I assume is a hood, but I have not found or seen any available.

    Ok now i see it ,
    That version is not as common maybe even rare in the size XL.

    This jacket was also very popular with foreign SF personel.

    Great jacket and no sound for the gore tex ,
