Have you heard of Czech Vz. 95? It’s Czechia’s “we have multicam tropic at home”. It’s an ERDL inspired pattern but with an Eastern European twist, with its lighter shades of greens, browns and blacks it screams temperate environment, wherever that temperate environment in Eastern Europe might be…? Perfectly suited for any uprisings in Prague. Just don’t drop (your) Soap.
The parka has some unique features compared to the classic M65 that inspired it. With a zipper to store the hood when not needed and multiple pockets to hide your compact CZ, this versatile jacket is perfect for use in spring and fall. And when you pair it with the buttonable liner (not included) it’s well suited for wintertime as well. We recommend using a quality spray on waterproofing agents for use in the rain.
This quality garment is a basement level bargain from the only country in EU with the cajones to give the “right to acquire, keep and bear arms” despite the nannies.

Parkas are sized in typical European fashion with your height in centimeters, and your chest circumference in centimeters. To measure your chest circumference, take a measuring tape and wrap it around the largest part of your chest.
Parkas are in excellent condition, with no tears, holes, cuts or stains. Parkas show only minor signs of use.
Exactly what it says on the can. This is a good old fashioned cheap army surplus beater parka. Take it anywhere, use it for anything. It's got all the essentials, hood, pockets, zipper, buttons. Arrived basically brand new. Fits large to accommodate liner.
Size ran a little large
Baggy and Long
I personally don't like baggy clothes, and much to my dismay this was way baggier than I was expecting even though I ordered 1 size smaller in both chest and height.
But I was able to cinch it up, and after wearing it a while the bagginess didn't feel so bad.
The sleeves are pretty excessive though, which is surprising because 90% of clothes barely fit my arms right.
For reference, I'm about 193cm (6'4) and ordered 188cm.
(pic related before and after cinching, sorry for shit quality)
I would recommend considering buying 1-2 or maybe even 3 sizes shorter if you have normal/short arms and don't like long sleeves.
The chest however, fits perfectly assuming you plan on wearing a moderate layer underneath, as intended; if you only plan on wearing a thin layer such as a tshirt, then ordering one size down is ideal.
