Regular price £125.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

 

A fantastic and incredibly unique Royal Canadian Air Force issued C.F. parka worn by a flightline crewman.

The white reflective strips are a common modification, often seen in use by military flightline crews to stand out in poor visibility conditions. The designs and placement of them vary greatly and the yellow triangles are seldom seen - they are likely only relevant to a particular unit. 

The parka is dated 1973 and is made with a nylon/cotton shell and nylon lining. It is designed for extreme cold weather and is insulated with thick batting. 

In overall excellent condition with minor wear. Stong colour. The zip is broken, but all other buttons, snaps, zips, fittings and fixtures are present and working. The front closure may still be secured with buttons. The contract label is present and legible. The knitted cuffs are undamaged and are in excellent condition. There are a few holes in the lining of the hood, but are mostly unnoticeable when worn. There are a few other minor sporadic stains and small holes as seen. A short length of stitching has come loose on the reflective strip on the left arm as seen.

Recently washed and steamed.
