This is a vintage Military Finnish camouflage pattern combat coat. This was originally issued in 1962 to the Finnish Army as a reversible coat, one side is camouflage while the reverse is off white to make it adaptable between woodland and snow terrain. This jacket is dated to 1983 and is fully reversible.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion, and discolouration throughout, with fraying to the cuffs and hem. There have been stitch repairs to the left (as worn) chest pocket and to the front left hem, plus a patch repair to the lower right pocket corner. Freshly steamed and ready for its 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.
