Vintage Snöblus (Snow parka) used by the Swedish army in the middle of the last century. This cotton pullover jacket was made to be worn as an outer layer in snowy regions. The jacket has two large front pockets and a drawstring at the waist to tighten the fit. The hood is large enough to be worn over a helmet and the jacket has a double layer behind the neck buttons to make sure that the cold winds wont get through. There is also a strap that can be buttoned in place between the legs to prevent the jacket from catching the wind.
The jacket is vintage and has been worn. The traces of use adds a great patina that only can be achieved from years of usage. On the left hand pocket one of the tree buttons is missing but other than that, the jacket is in great condition for its age and will last for years to come.
