I hope one of you can answer a question for me. I just watched Dave and Cody in Tierra del Fuego. I like the green jacket that Dave Canterbury wore through the whole show. It looks like it might be mill spec? Do any of you know where or how to get ahold of one?

Why not get ahold of our Introduction section and tell us something about yourself? You don't have to go all the way to Tierra del Fuego to do it either.

It is the first gen gortex jacket issued. Otherwise known as the ECWCS gortex parka, gen I, or something like that.

This it?

FYI
If so this guy has used one for $40 bucks, but mostly in Med and small. New ones in large 1X, 2X etc for $110 bucks. (made in Korea)

When I was in Louisiana, over the winter, I picked up a orginal Medium, (used) at Bob's Surplus in Stonewall, La. as well as the pants.
It fit fine with out much under it, but I wanted to have a Large to put over a different hunting coats.

So when I was out hunting last week, I stopped in at J&R, he traded my Med and a little extra money, for a large new jacket.
Good people, (guy and his wife) good prices, I stop in all the time.

P.S. his site only shows a little bit of what he (they) have.

So, the green anorak in Tiera del Fuego episode is not the ECWCS jacket. It is not military issue. Sorry for my earlier post. I hadn't seen the new episode. In a lot of the first season episodes, he wore the ECWCS jacket. I don't know what kind of jacket he was wearing. I was trying to see if it was gortex or canvas.

Dave wore a ECWCS in the very first episode called "Shipwrecked":

Definitely a different jacket in this episode.

Anoraks do not open in front. They are pull overs. This design keeps wind from coming through zippers and can be put on with frozen fingers/hands.

Ya know, that took a while to sink in, pull overs don't have zippers to freeze up....Duh,...... you are right.
It's funny that a basic truth can be so simple until you deal with it.
Thanks for bring that up.

So, what kind of anorak are you wearing?

This one's from Cabellas. Yes sometimes it is a pain to have a pull over but mostly when I need "access" I just pull my arms out. The problem is bibs which is what I wear under them. Hooking the bibs back up, underneath the anorak is also a pain. But it's worth it to not have a zipper. In this picture it looks a bit deformed as I have my camera in my front pocket.

Rick

Yeah, I figured that's what it was. You can tell something is in the front pocket. Do you have trouble with zippers in extreme cold if they have a storm flap? I can understand them freezing up but do you still have infiltration of the cold with the flap?

if there's a strong wind i'm sure they would.

I have a winter coat that has a storm flap on it and I've never had a problem with cold infiltration. I've worn it in -0 weather with winds probably at 20-25mph. That's a far cry from what they get in Fairbanks so I was just wondering how a storm flap would fair. I hate pull over stuff. Just my preference.

Yeah, I hate pull-over stuff my self, so I guess that is why I haven't had any experience with them.

Seems like it would more difficult to regulate heat/moisture build-up during times of heavy physical exertion (other than taking it off).

The pockets and neck opening have velcro closures which work very well. The thing is, zippers don't work if they get wet, they get frozen shut. Also as I said, if your fingers are frozen, it's hard to work them lol.

Well, every time I see an Inuit put on an outer wear or take one off it's always a pull over type so there must be something to it. They have that whole cold as a cucumber thingie worked out pretty well.

Yes. I mostly use mine as a final over layer. It's actually quite light weight. So especially with running a dog team where I am doing a lot of running, kicking, pushing the sled up hills, I will just take it off. But I have several layers underneath. On the trip in that picture though, it was really cold and we were up on top of a mountain. We took a snow machine up there to mark the trail with flamingos for the incoming dog teams for the Yukon Quest. It was so cold that my camera froze up. That's why it's in my pocket as I couldn't get back into it's bag easily so just stuck it in there.

Here is a description of how to regulate heat during heavy activity.

Layers are the key. And yea, no cotton underneath. Sometimes I wear jeans under my bibs but I always have on silk or synthetic long underwear between them and my skin. Other then jeans (sometimes) I never wear cotten out on trips in the winter. In the summer I can just pull my arms out of the sleeves if I am scrambling up a mountain to keep cool as it is cool enough here even in the summer that if you stop for very long, you get cold quickly, especially if you have been building up a sweat.

Heeheee it was our summit prize. I like bringing a little something special to have once getting to the top. Chocolate, cheese and crackers, brandy, tequila rose, only a small amount of course.

Perhaps you should define a "small amount". One man's warehouse is another mans bar.
