    Hi All,

    I know it's waaay after the fact but I'm trying to get my hands on a decent shape Vancouver 2010 Blue Volunteer Jacket, looking on Kijiji, Craigslist, and Ebay hasnt gotten me anywhere, checked with Byran Coes of the BC government with Zero Response :rolleyes:

    Does anyone know where I can purchase a Men's Blue Volunteer Jacket in a large or extra large? If anyone can help me if you could PM me or email me at [email protected], I'd hugely appreciate it!

    Thanks,

    Kyle

    At the moment, only ladies jackets, but mens come up as well.

    The volunteers in Vancouver looked soooo sharp in their blue jackets and hats. If I was one I would never give up my uniform. Except maybe to feed my kids if need be.



    Good luck!

    I checked BC Auction, nothing's coming up atm, I guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed!
     
  6. Yup, I'm keepin' mine. Aside from the nostalgia, it's very a practical rain jacket for Vancouver weather, plus the printing on the back & sleeves are reflective so it's great for walking at night.

    I also loooove the long-sleeve tshirts that were part of the uniform -- they're ├╝ber-soft bamboo, and I wore them as pjs all winter.

    Sorry Kyle.
