Versengtarn Lite "Scorched" Parka

Vers·eng·tarn from the German versengt “scorched” and tarnen “camouflage.”

The Versengtarn parka is a tribute to the fall of a king. The German Flecktarn parka, one of the most prolific and well-loved pieces of military surplus, is no longer being sold to the public. Instead, the Bundeswehr is burning it.

Our process takes the iconic Flecktarn pattern and scorches it with a reactive dye, darkening the print and giving each piece a unique appearance. Black, but not quite black — the color of the fabric shifts in the light.

After the dye bath, the parka is washed with a binding agent, removing any residual dye. The resulting Versengtarn fabric will not leech color or chemicals — it is clean enough to put in your mouth.

These 'Lite' variants of the original Versengtarn Parka (which was a pre-order only item) do not feature additional pockets or reflective tabs, making them closer to the original Flecktarn Parka. This is because the Lite parkas are manufacturing overruns from an intermediate step in the Versengtarn parka process.

Hey Herr Tony, this is for you.

So like, the merch is great. It fits the way it's supposed to. It has the right shade of camo. It's actually really great. I love the merch you sent me. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in buying it.
