This is a vintage US Army WW2 M-1943 Wind Resistant Field Jacket. Lightweight like its M-1941 predecessor, the M-1943 served essentially as a wind breaking layer that could be worn in any number of climates. Unlike the M-1941, the G.I.'s needs were actually considered during its design. As a result, it became the most popular field jacket among the US Army and became the base for its predecessors, evident in the designs of the M-51 and M-65.

The jacket is woven from densely-woven windproof cotton sateen in order to provide wind-chill protection. Features which made the jacket so popular included the four frontal button-close flap pockets for storage, a drawstring internal waistband for a customized fit and its darker shade of green providing better camouflage. The M-43 saw use by the US Army during the latter half of WW2 and is arguably one of the most iconic military garments of the era.

CONDITION:
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear and marks throughout. The cuffs have been repaired and the back features a darning repair. The internal drawstring is missing. This jacket has bags of character and is still going strong after 80 years. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.

Olive Green.
