From the “Golden Age” of backpacking and climbing – 

(2) Vintage Men's Snow Lion Mountain Parkas – Size Small - Snow Lion of Berkely CA, early 1970’s – 1977. Very lightly used in excellent, nearly off the shelf condition. Tightly woven 65% polyester, 35% cotton material. 2 available: (1) Green outer and royal blue inner and (2) wine colored outer and royal blue inner. Double layer fabric.

 – Single, zippered chest and 2 lower Velcro closure cargo pockets. Hand slots behind the lower cargo pockets. Zippered access to a full, upper back panel pocket which I suppose could be used for carrying an emergency blanket………among other things. 

– The Mountain Parka is a shell garment and is not insulated. – Dark brown, abrasion resistant nylon on the shoulders, neck, hood, upper chest and back. May be a Urethane coated nylon for additional protection from downpours but this is uncertain.

 – Heavy duty #10 YKK tooth design entry zipper with an outer, snap closure draft flap. The zippers work well. – Wide Velcro closure cuffs and a waist draw cord, none at the hem. – Hood cinches down around the face with a double toggle draw cord at the neck. 

– This is a burly parka weighing 2&1/4 pounds. 

Asking $50.00 per jacket inclusive of shipping. F and F paypal or please add 4% 

Men’s Snow Lion Mountain Parka – Size Medium Same model as above in medium. – Wine colored outer and royal blue upper lining. Asking $50.00. shipped.

 Each of these parka's appear to have been only slightly used and are in exceptional condition. The colors are bright and there are no worn or damaged areas, stains or grime on the fabric. Certainly old school in the evolution of garment technology but still a highly functional piece for many applications. Also, makes a nice travel jacket without being too technical. Or, paired with a sweater for a classic appearance when going out.
