The SS fur parka was designed as a uniform for the polar regions, and there it was tested. The first model was shorter and had a hood of smaller volume. It differed in some minor details too. The new model (the longer one) appeared on the front in winter 1942/43. A lot of photos of SS soldiers in this uniform taken during the fighting for Kharkov, so 2nd model parkas often called "Kharkov parka".
After studying the experience of using the 2nd model parkas, the SS decided to make it with front completely open, with buttons from up to the bottom. This simplified the process of dressing and allowed to wear it open, in case a soldier was hot after active movements.
After the allies landed in Italy, the Germans expropriated the military depots of the Italians and used their fabric stocks for sewing military uniforms. So appeared parkas, overalls etc. in Italian camouflage.
