It is made from a high-quality Slub Yarn Poplin (Cotton 100%) on one side and Alpaca and Wool Pile (Wool 80% Alpaca 20%) in the other side to create completely contrasting textures. Both are standard fabrics used for vintage military wear, but the blend of the two creates a new refreshing style.

Both a great insulator and a practical storage option for food, medical supplies, ammunition, etc., the parka-style overcoat was the best bet for keeping warm in spite of the harsh elements the soldiers were facing.
