The 1951 Field Parka was the further development of the M-1948. When the USA entered the war against North Korea, it quickly became apparent that clothing was needed to withstand the harsh Korean winters. The U.S. Army developed a parka with a removable inner lining that was cut large enough to be worn over equipment.
Due to a shortage of wool and cotton, the M-1951 Parka, however, did not reach Korea in sufficient quantities by the end of the war. Because of its functionality, the parka was very popular and remained in service until well into the 1980s with only slight modifications to its form. Even subcultures like the Mod scene quickly recognized the parka’s good qualities against wind and weather.
