    Winter M05 parka.


    Fairly used and faded M05 parka but still in excellent conditions.

    Looks quite similar to Luxembourg woodland.

    In natural light, the gray shapes look nearly white.


                                                   

                                                                                                                                             M05 winter type 20240322

    Both the clothing and the manufacturer are very rare, a very good find!

    Private purchase, not issue, and not Varusteleka .

    Brand new Origopro, made with some improvements, like a 2 way zipper and a zip chest pocket.

    Fantastic find! I think this is the first genuine issue I've seen in a collector's hands.

    Not easy? As in you flew to Finland in the middle of winter, thumped a soldier on the head, stole his clothing, then returned home to post pictures? Because honestly, that's what I imagine you had to do to get this Smile
