    It was about 20 dollars (no tax!), and came with a liner.

    Oddly enough, I found out the liner was a sort of pile liner used in the m51 fishtail parka. It guess since the coats are similar, it (kind of) fits. There are fewer buttons on the fishtail liner as opposed to the m-65 style one. I can't tell if it was lucky to get this type of liner, since it might be worth more, or inconvenient since i have to find a desert storm liner now.

    It's just called Night Camo from what I can see on the Camo site . We should have a section for modern items , there seems to be a few modern camo posts lately . It would be nice to have them all in the same section . Nice item by the way , I once hear the US wasn't sending these to surplus , so that is why it's hard to find this pattern .
    Cheers Chris

    There is a modern camo thread in the 'collections' section-had displayed my example there a couple of years ago-photos taken outside at night with flash.

    Default Need your help fellow forumers! :)

    Hello to everyone!

    I found you through google and I am very happy to have done so!
    I am also looking to get one of these Desert Storm Parkas but I read
    they are quite large in size as they were made to be worn over other
    garment and gear.

    Looking through the internet I have found that the tag sizes (chest size)

    SMALL 31-37"
    MEDIUM 37-41"

    are not even close to reality since they are actually bigger than this chest measurement.

    So please any member that could help me out?
    I need an inside armpit to armpit measurement (inches or cm would be just fine) of a small or a medium Parka
    when it is lying on its back on a flat surface.


    Note: I need the Thermal Liner to be attached on the Parka in order to get this measurement

    So if you open a parka
    (Internal thermal Liner Facing up - External camo parka lying on the surface)
    what would be the measurement at the armpit height level from the one side to the other?
    I need the inside measurement since that would be the internal limits of the Parka

    Please see pic 1 (this is a members photo I used)

    And what would be:
    The armit to cuff length (bottom seam)
    The shoulder to cuff length (top seam)

    Please see pic 2 (this is a internet photo I used)

    Or please any other measurement that would help me determine
    that the parka with the liner will not be to small or to big for me.

    I don't mind if it is long, I am just worried about the chest, shoulder and cuff sizes

    Thank you very much in advance fellow forumers.
    This will greatly aid me in my search

    Best Regards to all of you
