The fishtail parka hails its history from the US Army in Korea during the rigorous wet winters of the early 1950’s. In the 1960’s, the fishtail parka became a staple item on the streets of London, protecting the suits of working men that needed shield from the city’s elements. Cockpit USA’S version of the fishtail comes with options of a plain back and an embroidered U.S Army Airborne Parachute Wing insignia version that cherishes the bravery of the military parachutist. With its authentic water repellent tight canvas, the 100% Mil. Spec cotton gives the wearer a perfect cold or wet weather protection. Authentic, historic, and unique; the M51 Fishtail Parka is designed for those on the go.
