M-42 Jump jacket, size 36L

Quick Overview

Iconic cotton jump jacket as proudly worn by US paratroopers troughout the war. Size stamp 36L. The color is strong and the jacket is complete with its waist belt. All zippers present, original to the jacket and working. There is no label present in the pocket and it seems there never was one, which is not uncommon for this type of jacket (see second last photo). There are ghosts of an Airborne Command patch and chevrons on the sleeves but they are hard to see. The belt has been sewn to the back of the jacket to create a neat appearance of the waist. In all a very nice example of this type of jacket, which is becoming very hard to find. Also see last photo from Quartermaster catalog. View the many photos.

Very good condition.
