Hip hop hijacked this military look, thankfully. These three-quarter length nylon and polyester shell coats were designed for subzero temperatures. But when you're literally out here, only the heaviest-duty gear will cut it. The fur-lined hoods kept out the most biting winds, and haven't really fallen out of favor ever since they first started popping up. They also might be the only thing rappers have in common with Antarctic explorers.
