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

0.00

The ultimate winter coat, bar none.

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 to RAF Groundcrew (But were often used by aircrew as well). This especially rare Gray version was also issued to RAF mountain rescue crews (As pictured)

This parka is in fantastic condition, and features pristine thick white wool sandwiched between two layers of heavy duty 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.

Tagged size 8 (Large to XL, but there are so many adjustments on this coat, that it could potentially fit a size Medium as an overcoat)
