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

Fits perfectly and it's really cool! Not too warm by itself, but can be layered up easily. The only complaint that I have is that it's dyed just a tad too dark to see the camo pattern.

Very nice

Maybe a little bit darker than expected, but certainly far, far more comfortable to wear than I could have hoped. Very good stuff. Looks pretty cool to boot.

Very cool addition to the wardrobe

I'm a shorter skinnier person and am always pretty wary about sizing when it comes to clothing, but the overall shoulders and sleeves fit well, and the combination of Velcro and drawstrings do well to adjust it further.

It's nearly there in terms of insulating for 0-10C weather, I might have to look into a liner but the usual layering works.

Functional and very aesthetic!
