Sizing Chart

These parkas come from the 'Bundespolizei', the German Federal Police. This lineage is reflected in their design; unlike state police clothing, BGS gear is produced by the same manufacturers that supply the Bundeswehr. In fact the only difference between this, and some military parkas is a more olive shade of olive drab.

Some Germans aren't too happy about this. According to the German constitution policing is the responsibility of individual German states, not the federal government.

Regardless, everyone should have at least one olive drab military parka in their life, and it should be the real thing—not a department store knockoff. The Germans know what they're doing, they won't let you down.

Sufficiently olive, drab, and parka-y

It's a nice, hefty, good-looking parka. No visible signs of use other than two of the buttons being looser than they should be, and what I assume is someone's name written on the liner's material tag thing. For whatever reason, I ordered it in size 50, even though I'm a size 48. I lucked out and got one with a size 50 liner, but a size 48 outer jacket.

Fur parka

The quality is good and it is very comfy. I got it late in the winter so I haven’t used it too much but I did go camping with it once and was able to sleep with it on comfortably.

BGS Jacket

The BGS jacket is exceptionally comfortable and I have just been waiting for the review feature to return so I can say what a great product it is. I sat in this mf on an 8 hour flight and the only thing that made me uncomfortable was the fat bitch next to me. With the liner and a Czech tube scarf I was plenty bundled up for a cold north eastern winter and when spring rolled around I removed the liner for a jacket that was comfy in the ~50 degree weather. The liner is easy to remove and return. The jacket is alright weight wise. It has plenty of pockets for my phone, wallet, keys, etc. had to send it to the tailor for some damages but other than that the jacket is great. My one minor gripe is that there is a button on the top of the hood which is kinda ugly but, among the vast sea of things that makes this jacket awesome this is one minor point.
