So years ago I was in an army surplus store and found one of the greatest coats ever, what they described as an olive drab "mountain coat." It looked quite a bit like a standard-issue US Army field jacket, though I can't for the life of me remember if that's how the front pockets were arranged. What I do remember is that it had a button-in liner for cold weather, and (this is the important part) a rather large compartment hidden in the back of the coat, accessible by one of two zippers. The damn thing was nearly large enough to hold a laptop. Sadly, mine caught fire and was utterly destroyed. And predictably, the coats were so popular that the store sold out and said they couldn't get any more. Google fails me. Does anyone know if "mountain coat" is the proper name, and regardless, where a brother can get one? I think they're US Army surplus, but I wouldn't swear on it. Just flat OD green, please, no camo.
Curious George: Make me a MOUNTAIN MAN! Help me find the coat that got away.
