Yeah I know, the old four pocket parkas could be considered a little tired now, or played out as our American friends might say, and yours truly needs one like he needs a hole in his willy, but a classic is a classic. I like them, and was wearing them before these trends which come and go, and no doubt will be after. There's lots of bland and boring ones out there, lots of rehashed expensive ones too, but sometimes tired or played out is what I like, if and when it comes in it's original form, especially when it looks like this.
Alpine Designs (Alp sport) originally based and created in Boulder, Colorado - at the foot of the Rockies, one of the original pioneer brands of American outdoor wear in the 60's, another short-lived brand which produced sleeping bags and tents of superior quality. Yellow is always a fave of mine and this, which is older than me and still looks great, and despite gaining a bit of extra padding from the last month, comes in a size small and yet fits like a glove.
