This is a United States Army IPFU reflective windbreaker. The Improved Physical Fitness Uniform (IPFU) has come to an end for the US Army which now issues the Army Physical Fitness Uniform (APFU). Made from a water resistant nylon fabric with a mesh lining for breathability - keeping you cool while exercising. Zips under the armpits can be opened up for increased ventilation. These jackets are built to protect against rain, snow and freezing winds. And of course, it wouldn't be a US jacket without the classic "ARMY" print on the chest.
Used and in very good vintage condition with minimal signs of wear, the label dates this to 2000. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
All our vintage listings - unless otherwise stated - have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
