This U.S. Military ECWCS Parka is the top part of the same cold weather suit seen worn by U.S. forces during mountaineering operations and arctic exploration. This is the last outer layer of the legendary ECWCS (Extended Cold Weather Clothing System), intended to protect the wearer during stationary activities in extremely cold, dry conditions. Perfect for staying warm during deer stand hunting and ice fishing. Unlike most versions seen on the surplus market, this Parka is decked out in tactical black. Part of a failed government contract, only a small number of these black Parkas were manufactured before the original order was released to the public in never used, never issued condition.
