Gray fur is the longest and the most fluffy of all that we put on our parkas (and obviously the warmest).

Since December 2019, we use new gray fur in sizes I (small) and II (medium). The new fur has a name "blue fox", it's like sewn from pieces of different shades. If fur is important for you, specify in advance which fur is installed in the parka of your choice!


We also have (if you can choose it next to the Add to cart button) a parka with a hood from gray fur and the main "fur coat" from a raccoon. In the original parkas, it was completely normal: to put different fur in texture and color; the “fur coats” of the parkas were sewn from old fur products, including civilian ones. For military purposes they did not chase beauty and could collect one fur parka from different fur products.

The high-quality faux fur that stands on this park gives it the following benefits:

1) The parka can be washed with water! A parka with natural fur should never be wetted with water, otherwise the skin of the fur will harden and break. Our parkas can be washed even in a washing machine. It's important feature for reenactment, isn't it?
2) Artificial fur does not cause allergies and does not begin to shed hair with time. Natural fur in 2-3 years begins to "moult", why all the clothes under the parka is covered with a nap, which is difficult to clean. Artificial fur "lives" as long as the fabric of the top, allowing you to use an expensive jacket for more than a couple of years.
3) Natural fur would raise the price of the parka to $500. Therefore, we use fake fur, which looks the same, but allows you to save real money. Parka is not cheap anyway!

This parka of the 2nd model (with a middle-chest opening, a large hood and chest pockets with bow folds) is an own development of the Replika shop! This batch of parkas is sewn especially for us and from materials selected by us. It's sold nowhere else, although other copies can be found on the market (for example, cheaper ones have higher, narrower shoulder and, in general, awkward cut). During the development we studied a lot of photos, we also studied several copies in order not to repeat their mistakes.

Fur parka "Replika" is made of thick cotton fabric of Feldgrau (pale gray-green) colour. We also sell parka with another fur colour as far as special winter pants from the winter set. No-one besides us produces the suitable trousers for the parkas. We sold them separately. There are several reasons to buy a kit right away:

1) The question of tailoring the next batch of certain products is decided by the results of sales of the current one. If the item is sold out, it may simply not be there afterwards. Or it will be more expensive.
2) The next batch of parka and pants will be sewn, perhaps from another similar fabric. And if you don’t buy the kit right away, there is a chance that you can never assemble it: the fabric will be different.
3) Selection of the size and getting a discount for a set is possible only at the beginning of the sale of the lot. After a few months, some sizes (or variants, for example, fur color) may disappear from sale.

How to choose the size?

Usually, German winter and camouflage clothing was made in only three sizes: small (I), medium (II) and large (III). We offer only two sizes: medium and large.

You can choose the size remotely using the table below. To measure your chest you need a flexible meter or at least a rope. Also measure similar winter jacket that fits you.

Explanations to the table:
• Bare chest girth — the maximum around measurement of bare chest (while inhaling), you need to measure on the widest part of the chest.
• Jacket size you wear — corresponding clothing size in Russian and international units. The parka is sewn taking into account that it is outerwear! No need to add "size for a sweater".
• Shoulders of parka — shoulder width from sleeve to sleeve and behind the neck along the shoulder seam; this is a very important size, use it to compare with a similar jacket you already have.
• Sleeve of parka — sleeve length along the longest side.
• Back lenght of parka — the length of the back from the collar to the bottom (in brackets: to waist (elastic)), without hood. Please remember that the parkas on original photos often reached the knees when worn, they were quite long. We offer no other lenght!
• Chest / waist of parka — the width of the chest and waist of the jacket (at the level of the armpits and elastic band, respectively), when the parka lies flat on the floor. The jacket is designed to be worn over the uniform. And the fur park is quite larger than, for example, an overcoat of the same size. Because the overcoat is roughly 0.5 cm thick, and the jacket with fur is 7 cm thick.

You need to start by measuring the girth of your bare chest, and then compare the winter jacket you have with the selected parka size by shoulders size. Other sizes are for reference. If you choose the size like "well, I wear L", then you can make a mistake, because L is the conditional size, which means simply "Large".
Compliance is true for this product only! Divide cm to 2.54 to get inches

Historical reference.

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.
