There is a slight smell that the ten c's have when there brand new but that has gone now. I smelt it straight away when I put the coat on. I think it must be the dying process or it could be the material.
The jackets fantastic, I love that almost industrial feel that this substantial jacket gives you. I'm looking forward to the material softening up a bit but it won't get any proper use till the weather changes abit
I have a Parka (fishtail) but I can't afford to add an official Ten C liner to it at the moment. I'm wondering if a generic army parka liner would work inside of it. Perhaps one of these from Alpha industries: http://www.alphaindustries.com//mens-field-coats/alpha-industries-m-65-liner-als92.asp
Has anybody tried that or know the answer?
the alpha industries one you are referring to may fit into your parka but is like a jacket as it buttons on to itself whereas the Ten c liner below does not as it buttons into the jacket.
if you don't mind that there's no harm in giving a go if you can return for free or try an army surplus store for a liner if there's one nearby. let us know how it works out!
Bang for your buck.
And because I have too much time I went in to shower. 5 seconds front and 5 back. Notice how some parts get darker as they drink water (Right shoulder, from wearing messanger bag, and sleeves from just lots of movement) and some stay dry even against a moderate amount of water pressure (below pockets and triceps). Interestingly, the hood was the most water proof-y part of the outer surface, confirming my hunch that surface friction is what is causing the loss of water resistance.

@ceoceo, care to give us another update on your jacket here? Is it still losing most of its properties and aging fairly rapidly?
I am a little concerned that I should have gone with a 48, but Haven's measurements look like it should be just right in 50, my usual size for outerwear. It doesn't really look like a boxy fit like some of their other parkas, which is good. We'll see...
