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. The internal print dates this to 1972.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration throughout. There is some fraying to the left (as worn) chest pocket, and there have been some stitch repairs to the back right pocket.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, 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.
