Ultra Rare 1950's RAF Ventile Cold Weather British Groundcrew Parka

Ultra Rare 1950's RAF Ventile Cold Weather British Groundcrew Parka

0.00

One of the most sought after and rare military garments around, and for obvious reasons! These things are the ultimate parka in pretty much every way. Issued in very limited numbers (due to the extreme expense of manufacturing these Ventile beasts) in the 1950’s and 60’s to RAF Groundcrew, they are unbelievably rare.

This parka features pristine thick white wool sandwhich between two layers of heavy duty (and super expensive!) Ventile cotton (which is both water and wind proof).

The hood is lined with soft, warm sheep shearling, and trimmed with fox fur. Wooden toggles, heavy duty NZ zipper, adjustable belt and strings, and tag all intact.

The design itself is one of our top favorite military designs of all time. The slanted map pocket on the chest and the wooden toggles are so great.

Not only is this in fantastic condition (with only a minor rip on the inside lining, one broken button) but it is also the best fitting size we have had. These are usually an incredibly BIG fit, but this one is a great size Medium (wearable for someone size large as well. very adjustable fit)
