This is a vintage Swiss Army combat camouflage sniper jacket, with a metal zip front, a multitude of generous pockets for all your kit, and a sniper veil concealed inside the hood. Made from a tough and durable twill fabric, which was made to last. This internal stamp dates this jacket to 1971.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear and abrasion. The plastic coating is coming away on the left arm (as worn) as well as there being 2 professional repairs to the cuff ends in order to remove broken zips. Still a cracking jacket with bags of character. Freshly laundered 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.
