Coldsmoke M-51 Fishtail Parka

Jul 16, 2018

Category: Gear

When you look at fashion trends over the course of American history, you’ll notice that military apparel is quite a significant influence. Taking a page from the U.S. Military, Coldsmoke reinvented the M-51 trench coat and turned it into a finely constructed fishtail parka that’s built for harsh conditions.

Using Swiss-made ‘C-Change’ fabric that mirrors organic technology found in mother nature, the fibers of the parka work just like a pine cone, closing when temperatures drop and opening back up when they rise. That makes this lightweight, breathable coat’s adaptability to changing weather conditions highly receptive. Further making it a functional go-to coat, it has a snap-off hood, over-sized hip pockets with waterproof zippers, two spacious interior pockets, a microsuede collar lining, an interior zippered media pocket and Japanese nylon satin lining. Slip this cold-weather coat on and you’ll be ready for even the worst weather.
