This is a vintage US Air Force Wind Resistant Field Jacket with a Conmar zip away hood, fly button front, and plenty of pockets for all your kit. The internal label dates this jacket to 1961, Vietnam War Era. Made in the USA by John Ownbey Co., Inc.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion, discolouration/ marks throughout, and some fraying to the cuff ends. The cuffs have one button missing but still fasten fine with the current buttons, one of which is a replacement. The front bottom concealed button is also a replacement. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

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.
