Fleece Tanker Size*:

Product Description

This started as a project to reduce the cost of the classic Tanker Jacket- and we ended up with one of the nicest coats ever. Identical to the WWII Winter Combat Jacket in every way, except that we substituted high quality polar fleece for the wool lining. It's warmer, softer and breathes better than the wool serge of the originals. This is the same type of fabric used on the fleece jackets made by companies like North Face and Patagonia. The color and appearance is very, very close to that of the wool fabric, and does not stand out or call attention to itself...it looks like wool until you feel it. The shell is the same olive drab no. 3 100% cotton twill used on the regular Tankers.
The jackets feature nickel plated Talon zippers, spec labels, and tubular cuffs.

Washing: Unlike the wool lined Tankers, these are machine washable. However, the fleece will pill up some, especially if a dryer is used. We recommend cold wash and hang dry for longest garment life and least fade. Shrinkage is approximately 1 inch.
