The US Army needed a longer and more water & wind repellent jacket than the M-41 and developed the M-1943 Field Jacket. It was proved very versatile and became the base design for future field jackets - The M-50, M-51 and M-65.

  • OD#7 olive green
  • Made of heavy cotton twill
  • Pockets lined with HBT cotton
