We're not sure if the Germans have started burning these too, but we really hope not. The Flecktarn SympaTex parka is the hardshell first cousin of the classic cotton/poly Flecktarn parka you know and love. It wears hard, while being light enough to wear in the summer.

SympaTex is a fabric/membrane that is both water and windproof but allows water vapor to flow through. It's very similar to American Gore-Tex but originates from a European parent company. SympaTex is widely used across Europe in sports and recreation gear and has had considerable success winning military contracts.

 TL;DR It's a damn good waterproof shell in Flecktarn.

Specs

  • German Flecktarn pattern on delicious weatherproof SympaTex membrane
  • Zippered main closure with snap-secured double storm flap
  • Two roomy low-front snap-secured pockets
  • Hook and loop fabric for nametape, patches on both shoulders, and tightening cuffs
  • Cinch cord in hood and at bottom of parka "skirt" (that's what that part is called, apparently)

 Type

 Flecktarn comes in two color versions.

  • Pre-2005:The five-color pattern everyone thinks about when they hear Flecktarn — vibrant and robust
    • Pre-2005 variants: Sometime during the 90s, Germany was in high demand for BDUs, so it contracted a handful of different companies for manufacture. Construction is identical, but color is not. With the number of different batches being produced by different printing equipment, the tone of the five colors varies from company to company
  • Post-2005:In 2005 the five colors of Flecktarn were altered into more muted tones. Since then, the colors have stayed free of variation. Every piece made since 2005 features this muted version of Flecktarn

Condition

All parkas are in like-new to very good condition with no indications of damage.

Flecktarn über Alles

Very straightforward and simple parka. Love it. I like that it has areas for patches on the arms. I'd say it fits as close to perfect as can be for what it is, which is usually my biggest fear when it comes to buying things to wear online.

My new daily driver

This hardshell is perfection. The exact right amount of warmth, the exact right size, the exact right cut so that you can move freely as necessary. And if all that wasn't enough, it looks really nice when you're wearing it. It's drawn compliments from people who couldn't identify Flecktarn from Bushstroke, so that's a nice side benefit as well.

All in all, a very solid purchase that I'm very happy about

Awesome

Was worried about sizing but it fits great and works well. Even works well with a German parka liner
