Jacket, Parachutist, M-1942, Size 38


Great genuine WWII US Army M1942 parachute jumper jacket, made in wind- and water-resistant cotton cloth, introduced in December 1941 and intended for being worn with matching trousers. This type features slanted breast pockets for easier access to contents.

The present jacket retains all original snap fasteners and waistbelt. The front zipper, manufactured by Crown, and the Conmar knife pocket zipper are in working order. Laundry number C-8059 has been handwritten inside. Excellent overall condition. No label; size seems to correspond to 38R.
