Was not sure what to expect. Received a jacket that shows made in 80. It does not look to ever have been worn. No patches or signs there where any. The jacket is outstanding for a 44 years. It also shipped incredibly quick from NZ to US. Such a great deal I ordered a second for my son.
Bought this and I have no regrets. Jacket is almost like new and looks hardly used. According to tag it is made in 1974 which makes it close to 50 years old! Very tough outer shell as you can expect from US military issue and lined internally with smooth cotton canvas. Very versatile jacket.
Great jacket and incredibly good quality given the age. DSA number is 100-70-C-0525, which indicates it was manufactured in 1970. A 52 year old jacket with no visible significant signs of wear, stains or damage. Very happy. Worth the money. Thank you.
Was a little dubious about how good this jacket would be given the condition guide being just “used/good may have marks stains etc”. Not so, this jacket is in excellent condition, very minimal wear. Great quality and will be an excellent addition to my collection.
