Real 1940s M1942 Airborne Jump Jacket, used, stains, etc.

Only 1 left in stock!

This is an actual, valuable jump jacket used by U.S. Army paratroopers in the 1940s. This is not a privately procured item, but a government-issued item that was issued by the military at the time. Airborne troops were made up of volunteers within the Army, and the concept of airborne operations was the latest at the time. Many of the soldiers were trained without knowing what they were actually doing, but after they completed their training, they were allowed to wear this jump jacket with the silver jump wings. The distinctive waist belt, four pockets with exposed buttons, and many other items of equipment were often lost, so this jacket was calculated to allow paratroopers to equip their clothing with as many items as possible. There is also a pocket on the chest for storing a knife in case you need to cut a paracord or other spare items. This jacket also has a pocket for a knife, but unfortunately the zipper is corroded and cannot be closed. It is a wonderful jacket. The Jungle Fatigue 1st Model was developed based on the Jump Jacket as a new combat uniform for U.S. Army soldiers during the Vietnam War that began in the early 1960s. The waist belt also existed in the beginning, but it eventually took the form that everyone knows.

The one we have just received does not have any rank insignia sewn on it. The buttons are corroded and rusted and require maintenance when in use. There are red stains scattered throughout. The zipper also moves well, but the knife pocket on the chest cannot be closed due to corrosion of the zipper. It is in good condition with a sense of use due to age and deterioration, but not so dirty and in such condition that it is difficult to wear. This is a jump jacket that was only worn by some of the elite of the U.S. Army, so if you are looking for one, we hope you will take this opportunity to enjoy it. Because it is a used item, returns are not possible. Please understand.
