The US Army's Tankers jacket was officially called the "Jacket, Combat, Winter" and was originally designed for armoured crews but was soon used by all Branch of Services in the US Army.
Although it was issued as part of the Winter Combat uniform it is more commonly called the Tankers jacket, this is one of the iconic jackets worn in WW2 by the US Army and can be seen in many war films including "Saving Private Ryan" and "Kelly's Hero's" etc.
This Tankers jacket has all the details of the original American Army winter combat jacket of World War Two and is made by "Kay Canvas". It has a nice thick wool blanket type liner and a cotton outer with light brown knitted cuffs and the knitted is waist band gives a neat finish.
The Kay Canvas Tankers jacket features:
The Kay Canvas vintage Tankers jacket is made slightly longer and the elastic is slightly tighter than on the Miltec Tankers jacket which we also sell on our web site.
The colour and feel of these Tankers jacket is very similar to the American made ones from the late 1990's we have a couple which we purchased from the film set of "Band of Brothers" and these compare very well to them.
Please note unlike our other Tankers jacket the Kay Canvas Tankers jacket does not include any patches on the shoulder so you can wear it plain or stitch or own unit patch onto the shoulder.
