M-51 Fishtail Parka


You are looking at a stunning reproduction of the legendary M-51 Fishtail Parka.

Adopted in 1951 by the US Army who spared no expense into making these excellent quality coats to protect its troops from the heavy winters of the Korean peninsula so they could win the fight against the commies.

The parka is a single breasted outer garment with hood and with epaulets and slide fastener front closure with snap fasteners, sleeves with adjustable cuffs, two slit type breast pockets with flap and snap fastener closure, waist and hem line drawcords, inside buttons for attachment of liner (not included) and buttons on the collar for attachment of fur ruffed hood (not included).

Our M-51 Fishtail Parka is of extremely high quality, made of the original specification cotton warp and nylon filling oxford cloth, water repellent, in the olive green 107 shade. It features mil. spec. buttons and snap fasteners and an exclusive reproduction of the Crown, 2nd Model (M-44) #10 zipper.

You will not find a better fishtail parka, guaranteed!

Note: These parkas run large as they were made to be used as outerwear on top of soldiers' full gear. Please check out the respective size table before ordering.
