FS: Vintage Alpine Designs Goose Down Filled Parka - Medium

Postby normankirk » Wed Nov 08, 2017 4:12 pm

Full on winter parka for very cold temperatures. Made in Boulder, CO by Alpine Designs (George Lamb and Alpine Designs - http://www.oregonphotos.com/Alp-Sport1.html). This is a well used parka that has been brought up to snuff with some repairs. It is fairly clean and has just a few stains:

- New sleeve cuffs.
- Restitched seams, on right and left pockets and reinforced zipper stitching.
- Tenacious Tape applied onto 2 worn spots and a ripstop patch over a small tear.
- Added goose down to left, hand warmer pocket (it was a little skimpy). 
- There is some color fading.

- Double offset quilt construction for a continuous layer of goose down insulation. Each outside stitch line is backed with an inside down pocket.
- Parka length covers the buttocks.
- Removable hood.
- Double toggle, HD #10 YKK plastic tooth type zipper. Getting the zipper started with the double toggles can be a little finicky but you get the hang of it. Zipper runs smoothly.
- Cargo/hand warmer pockets.
- 1.9 ounce ripstop nylon, the standard of the day.
Nice classic parka ready for continued use. Any winter outdoor purpose or climbing related: Base camp, belay, winter camping, alpine climbing in cold temperatures. Asking $125.00. Shipping at cost. Payment through PPFF or please tack on 3%.
