Condition:
Items are sorted into Battledamage when they require repairs to be fully serviceable. Because military garments are strong by design, the majority of our Battledamage consists of broken zippers, buttons, and other replaceable components. Other items may end up in Battledamage due to significant staining, tears or other evidence of wear.

Please note that all sales are final on both Battledamage and Grade 2 items. Additionally, we do not offer any hand selection or sizing on Battledamage.

 



Condition & Date Guide


Issued to the Bundeswehr (the unified armed forces of Germany), this parka sports flecktarn, a camouflage developed from a long line of ancestors dating back to just before WWII.

Many agree flecktarn is one of the best camouflages to wear both in and out of the field (unless you live in Germany.)

Fleck Parkas are about more than just looks. Water resistant fabric, plenty of pocket space, and a cut built for retaining agility while keeping yourself covered. There are even zippers at the armpits for cooling off the body or warming your hands. The Germans have well mastered parka engineering.

If there was a degree in Flecktarn, we’d hang ours on the wall. Warehouse Ivan spent hours sorting, studying, analyzing, and researching the fleck-info barren internet. He has found the way: the true method to sort Flecktarn surplus, and the most comprehensive understanding he is aware of. (fun infographic in process)
