This is a vintage Military US Navy A-1 Cold Weather Nylon Deck Jacket, made from a tough and durable nylon twill fabric, which was made to last. The quilt wadded lining will help ensure no chills in this jacket. The back neck label dates this to the 1960s, Vietnam Era, and has a rear stencil to the upper back. Made in the USA.
Used and in very good vintage condition with general signs of wear and abrasion and some small marks from use, which all adds to the character of the jacket.
All our 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.
