VINTAGE US ARMY WOMEN FIELD JACKET M-1943 M43 1948 SIZE 10 REGULAR

$225.00

Vintage US Army Women Field Jacket M-1943 Size 10R.

Stock No. 55-J-193-35

Lightweight like its predecessor, the M-1943 served essentially as a wind breaking layer that could be worn in any number of climates. Unlike its predecessor, the G.I.’s needs were actually considered during its design. More pockets, more versatility, and a darker shade of green to get people to stop calling soldiers Brown Jobs. The most important thing about the jacket was the layers that could be worn under it.
