It's a little late in the season to be buying a parka, but these are pretty hard to come by. Bought from the original owner, in excellent condition. Cost me $90.
Very nice pickup Doc. I was eyeing this on eBay as well, it seems the seller had a few of them for sale. Vintage Sierra Designs stuff is made extremely well.
This reminds me to post up my fairly recent "late 70's backpacker look" purchases. Great for weekend wear.
Synergy Works parka. "The best damn parka in the world" - their ad slogan. Early Gore-tex - I'd est. this to be from '76-'78.
Because It's There (Seattle) 65/35 parka. Sierra Designs coined the term "60/40" for their parka, so other makers of the era had to use a similar blend of 35/65 to get the similar feel and effect. Stormshed fabric.
