USED is the key word here. While there were no holes or tears in the material, the liner was very worn down, as were seams around the pockets. There was also significant fading all over and stains on the front. In addition, my asthma started acting up when I took it out of the shipping box. It definitely needed a quick wash with the appropriate detergent and some airing out. That being said, the condition IS listed as used, and the price was extremely reasonable for a gore-tex jacket, so I am giving a rating that reflects this. I do think the description is slightly misleading by saying “condition is very good”.. I would not describe it as very good. But as long as you don’t mind that level of wear, you get what you pay for. Extremely functional.
I was surprised the parka was in a worn out shape, the first night I tried it out, we had rain and my should was soaking wet. Other than that, the size I order was a perfect fit, MR. I don’t recall this gore-tex parka needed a additional liner.
Arrived on time. Exactly as advertised. Used but in excellent condition. Zippers work great. No damage, rips or tears. McGuires has always done a fantastic job for me.
Arrived in excellent condition for a very reasonable price. All zippers, zipper pull and fabric was intact, no rips tears or damage. Immediately took it out into the Liquid Sunshine of the Pacific Northwest hiking, the Gore-Tex repelled water as advertised. In my opinion there is no substitute for Gore-Tex and for around $75 you cannot go wrong with this used military Parka!
Perfect for the hunt or the slopes
