Super hardwearing outer made of densely woven Bedford Cord style fabric (referred to as Jungle Cloth)
Alpaca lined making it extremely warm, inside tag can still be seen
Alpaca collar with button chin strap, one of small buttons missing (could be swapped to other side so chin strap can be used)
Knitted cuffs keep wind out and the warmth in
Gusseted underarms with eyelets for ventilation
Had a new Conmar zipper put in, originals rarely work on these jackets
All original buttons still intact, including throat tab buttons
Super high quality, made in the US jacket
Hard to find a better jacket to keep out the cold/wind all these years later
Has some marks/holes as expected for this age which all add to the character
