I got what I ordered quickly and it was in good condition.
I was issued the fishtail parka while serving in the Army. This hood is the real deal, it was never used, definitely NOS. This is a very warm hood. Because it is nostalgic and nostalgic is in, you can wear it anywhere anytime. You can shape it however you like. It will fit on an M-65 field jacket or on a fishtail parka. It is very comfortable and will block the wind keeping you very warm. Wash it to soften it up. You'll enjoy it for years.
This hood is effective in cold winter weather. It keeps you warm and blocks the wind, even when partly down. It is, however, stiff and can be uncomfortable if the Velcro closure is pulled too tight. The faux fur is coarse, but it does block falling, blowing snow. The wool liner is somewhat coarse. The main fault is that male snap to secure the right side of the hood does not fit the female part on all after market M-65s. This can easily be remedied with a simple safety pin or installation of a snap set, which you can find at sewing and hardware stores and online. I’ve used it quite a few times so far this winter and I’m glad I attached it to my field jacket.
Quick delivery. Looks to be in brand new condition.
Received the hood yesterday. It was packaged well and in impeccable condition. Fitted it to my Field Jacket and it looks and fits like its made to be there. I won't get cold on long walks this winter.
