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 — they feature 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).

          Great Parka

          The delivery was fast and their notifications kept me up to date with where it was and when it would be here. Once the jacket got here i was very pleased with it. Its nice and comfortable and its a little thicker than most jackets which makes it good for whatever weather. Its a very nice jacket. Also, thanks for fullfilling my notes, ivan.

          Unissued Flecktarn parka

          Took a while to get it. I'll blame the various courier/postal services and not the Kommandostore.

          Parka is beyond expectations. Add a liner and its a great 3 season jacket.

          Can't hate flecktarn

          This is the 3rd or 4th flecktarn parka I've bought (from various sources). If you know what size to get yourself, you're going to get a good parka. The parka has no stains to disrupt the pattern, there are no failing stitches in the pockets, no worn out elbows, all draw cords in their places, zipper functions as it should. This one is NOT waterproof though, so paint it with some melted microwax, let it dry out for 2 weeks, then tumble it in your dryer and you just turned the 50 dollar parka into a 200 dollar parka (compare to similar products from places life dicks or rei). I'd buy another but the prices are going up and up, and I only have one body for all this camo.
