Not really sure if there is any interest for something like this here, but here it is anyway.

Vintage Class 5 parka in orangey red with tan lining. Beautiful and vibrant color, which I really can't photograph. Too many details to list, but here is a strikingly similar jacket to the one I have (tags and color are different, the pockets, zippers, etc seem identical). Interesting facts about the history of the brand.
I'm fairly certain the fabric is 65/35, a supposedly better version of 60/40. Possibly hand sewn.
Better pictures of similar jackets!
For something older than me, it is in surprisingly good condition, I doubt it's ever been worn on a mountain.
Tagged a size small, fits a 38 with room to wear a chunky sweater of a light down vest under. That's the way things were being done back then.
Price includes shipping in the US.

Measurements in inches:
Shoulders: raglan
Pit to pit: 21.5
Sleeve (taken from the armpit because of the raglan shoulders): 21.5
Back: 31

$60 > $55 > $45
