"Extreme Cold Weather Combat Parka" Canadian Armed Forces. Comes with arctic combat hood that can be shaped to the desired size in the front. Warm gortex lining. Parka has a small repair patch sewn on below canadian flag patch, but otherwise looks to be in excellent condition.

Zipper for hood is a little hard to work (may need to be oiled). Main zipper and buttons in perfect working order. Jacket is extremely warm. I've warn this coat in the -30C (-22F) degree Ottawa winter with only a t-shirt underneath and felt extremely warm. There is nothing else like it. Was used in the Canadian forces for extreme cold (arctic) conditions. Hood tag says 1974. Tag on body of coat is unreadable (probably from fading in the wash). Jacket has heavy duty zipper with brass tracks. The zipper connecting the body to the hood is stuck, and probably needs to be oiled. The hood can attach with buttons though, so the hood zipper is not really necessary.

Fits like a medium, but see measurements. The model in the photos is 5'7 and 165 lbs and usually wears a size 38 chest jacket. He found the coat to be a loose but good winter coat fit. Measurements are on outside, but please remember that this is a thick winter coat, and will therefore should not fit tightly:

shoulder to shoulder: 19 inches
across chest, pit to pit: 22 inches
sleeves, from shoulder to cuff: 24 inches
Length, from back collar to hem: 36 inches

Shipping:
USA: add $29
Canada: add $19
