One of the earliest Adventure Tech offerings is this Gore-Tex Parka based on the ECWCS system. Lightweight and compactable. There is a distinct lack of velcro to make way for metal press studs and elastic drawstrings. They were considered state-of-the-art when they first entered production and are much lighter-weight than the general issue ECWCS parkas of the same era.
These jackets were a private purchase option for US Special Forces and NSW personnel who had the means to acquire them in the mid-1990s and are the predecessor to some of the more available and better-known Adventure Tech waterproofs.
This particular item was independently sourced from a collector in the States who often acquires rare Special Forces and Navy SEALs equipment and uniforms.
This parka is briefly mentioned in this USMF forum thread:
