The M-51 Shell Parka was produced by the US Army in 1951. The length is a little shorter and the silhouette is a little looser, but the pattern has been modified to fit today's style. FOB FACTORY'S shell parka can be worn not only with casual styles but also with suit and jacket styles. The fabric can be enjoyed as it ages, and the very light and stress-free fit makes it an item that can be used in a variety of situations.
The material is a reprint of the moleskin used in the US Army B-9 flight jacket. The moleskin fabric is woven with tricot yarns and is dense, strong, and flexible.
Wear as an outer garment or underlayer in cold/dry climates.
