The M-1941 Arctic Field Jacket was created in anticipation of wool shortages during WW2. Soldiers were also in need of a new and practical jacket unlike the M-1939 service coat that came before it which was impractical for field duty. Based on a civilian windbreaker as suggested by Major General Parsons. The relatively lightweight M-1941 jacket was made from a poplin outer and featured a wool flannel lining. This jacket is dated 1944 in the printed label and features a Talon aluminium zipper.


Used and in good overall vintage condition considering the age is almost 80 years old, with general signs of wear, abrasion, discolouration and marks. The cuff adjusters are missing as well as there being some fraying to both cuffs. Not quite perfect but still a great bit of kit with bags of character. Steamed and ready for a new owner.


All our 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.
