For an exceptional quality reproduction US WWII M1942 Jump Uniform - look no further!
This is an excellent reproduction of the "Operation Overlord" paratrooper uniform jump-jacket and trousers used by the US Army airborne units during WWII. This re-enforced model saw action in Normandy Campaign until replaced by the M-1943 uniform around the time of the Arnhem-Nijmegan operations.
This is a two-piece uniform "set" and includes both the jacket and trousers. This "deluxe" model comes with two extra ammunition pockets to sew on the sleeve and 101st Airborne patch. These items are NOT sewn onto the uniform.
The airborne uniform jacket is made from a heavy weight 100% cotton and canvas. It features the four distinctive "second pattern" large bellowed front pockets with double snaps. (The "first pattern" models never saw combat). The upper two chest pockets are angled for easy access and the lower two side pockets are in an upright position with basic cover flaps. The pockets and elbows have been re-enforced with olive drab canvas (just as the "riggers" would have done).
The jacket has a fine cut around the waist and shoulders. It has the concealed vertical pocket (for a hidden knife), 3/4 length talon brand zipper, cloth waist belt and metal snapped collar and cuffs.
The trousers are also re-enforced on both the knees and pockets and have a button fly, watch pocket, waist belt tabs and buttons for suspenders. The side pockets are bellowed with cloth leg ties (perfect for stuffing items into).
This uniform is coloured a fine olive drab #3 (khaki)
