This is the French army
issued from the late eighties/ early nineties until the change to camouflage
in the late 90s. The parka
is a well-designed item but not as long in the body as most parkas and slightly more fitted in style. It has a removable fleece liner
, 2 slanted waist pockets with a snap fastening flap, drawstring adjustment on the hood and adjustable cuffs. It also has shoulder epauleetes and a pocket on the left sleeve. The small velcro patch
at the front would have been for insignia.
