Product Description

Reproduction of the jackets issued during WWII to US Army paratroopers up until the late Summer of 1944. This pattern of jacket was worn from early 1942 through the D-day landings 2 1/2 years later. Shortly before the invasion of Normandy, a large number of jackets and trousers had their knees, elbows and pocket gussets reinforced with canvas by the divisional riggers in order to make them last longer in the field.

These reproductions feature hidden zipper closures, armpit vents, expandable pockets, waist belt, split cuffs, zinc plated snaps, and the small pocket in the placket for the M2 knife. The fabric is 8 oz., 100% cotton twill, dyed the correct olive drab no. 3 shade used for WWII uniforms. Assembly was done with the period correct seam types, including double needle chain stitch where applicable. These are made with zinc-plated snaps (the most typical finish found on WWII jump jackets) and Talon zippers.

Care: Hand wash cold/ hang dry is recommended. To use a machine, it's best to flip the garment inside out to prevent damage to the snaps and the unholy racket of the clanging against the sides of the drum.
