This is a vintage Swiss Army combat camouflage sniper jacket, with a brass front zip and popper storm flap, 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 that was made to last. There is also a detachable backpack in the same camo fabric. The internal print dates this to 1972.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear and discolouration throughout. The lower parts of both arms are in a darker cloth and must have been professionally replaced, giving an even more unique look.
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.
EXTERNAL MEASUREMENTS: Please check against a similar garment of your own that fits you well, measuring flat and fully zipped or buttoned up on a flat surface.
