Heritage Research has released their Sierra Nevada Ventile Parka for Fall 2011, one that takes inspiration from a 1952 photo printed in A LIFE magazine of Jack Kennedy in the Sierra Nevada mountain range wearing a classic 1950’s military mountaineering parka. It’s got all the proper details like a navy weatherproof Ventile shell, adjustable hood with removable shearling sheepskin lining, military RiRi zip under a double front placket nickel popper closure stormflap and much more. The authentic pivot sleeves allow for climbing while the four front angled hand warmer pockets will give protection when you need it most. The light tan Ventile and wool blanket lining looks tremendous and does a splended job insulating as well.
