B-7 Aleutian Parka

Pull on this parka and step back in time. Zip it up, secure the toggles, and you're thoroughly prepared to take on winter's fury. A WWII-era original, the B-7 Parka was regulation outerwear for pilots and ground crews stationed in the bitterly cold environs of Alaska. Built to handle the torturous conditions of windswept airfields as well as the frigid environment of unheated cockpits at altitudes of up to 20,000 feet, the heavy-duty, three-quarter-length, hand-tanned B-7 jacket is shearling lined for unparalleled warmth and comfort. Signature features include two extra-large front pockets, two exterior zip pockets, an attached hood, two interior pockets, and a zip-front closure concealed behind a toggle-closed wind flap. In brown. Genuine shearling. Professionally clean. Made in USA. Regular even sizes: 38-46; about 33" long in size 40.

"Over $2500.00 for a coat, and NO regrets. It was everything it said it would be. In Buffalo, this year we had a polar vortex and -50f wind chills. No problem.
I even added it to my will.
Michael.
P.S. I also bought my daughter and myself each a complete set of luggage. Extremly happy there too.
Orvis offers me accsess to high quality items not available elsewhere.

Well-made and Warm!,

"This is a very good coat for extreme cold. It's very warm and heavy. Has good internal pocket space and hood keeps cold off your face and head. However, I'd prefer all shearling on hood and not fur. The fur can get in your eyes. Also, the leather button closure loops may be a little difficult to unbutton at times. But these are minor gripes. Overall, this is a great coat. It's a genuine cold weather buster! I have gotten many compliments for others."

Review part II,

"Part II of my review. The fit on my parka size 44 is very snug in arms down to wrist. Would be hard to layer.also noted fur hood brim has significant shedding. More than other high quality coats. Also many loose thread terminations. Again I am a very critical customer and have very high expectations in a parka that is offered at this price level."

"Parka is very close to the original B-7. I have my fathers original Parka from his Boeing TB-29A Air-Force service. However at the extra, extra cost of this parka a few items of note:
The fur hood brim is too small 1/3 the ratio to the pic on web, and the seam is exposed.Looks like the fur was added by a cheap tailor. Seam should be welted. The leather buckles and details are not of the quality expected at the price level. However that being said it is a substantial coat. And the overall quality is acceptable. The shearling on my coat is darker then the pics on web.Please note I am a very critical customer and many of these points will not be noticed by the average customer.
