This APECS (All-Purpose Environmental Clothing System) Parka is your “go to” coat for extreme cold weather. It has all the features you need and more. APECS is similar to the US Army’s ECWCS layering system. It is a cold weather layering system that keeps the wearer warm and dry.
The camouflage pattern on this jacket is ABU (Airman Battle Uniform) or known informally as Tiger Stripe due to its similarities to the original tiger stripe pattern used in the Vietnam war.
