Arctic Storm

Superb Russian surplus, by far the best, hardcore extreme winter suit I own, if you’re lucky to be able to find and buy one, I would recommend not to hesitate and purchase yourself this superior to all else winter garment you’ll ever wear. No-nonsense, practical, straight forward design and clever finished details. High-end fabric and insulation, indisputable second to non. Great winter camouflage, ergonomic fit and concept. Well worth the money, the pride and joy of my winter collection.
