M1938 Dismounted Raincoat Rubberised by Kay Canvas

American WW2 M1938 raincoat, rubberised.

This waterproof raincoat was general issue to all US soldiers in WW2.

The M1938 rubberized raincoat is made from the earlier treated cotton canvas similar to the WW1 raincoats and British WW2 rain capes. Later rain coats where made from a synthetic resin fabric (which are lighter and thinner and sometimes feels like nylon).

The raincoats went through a few design and fabric changes in the 1930's and 1940's, this version has been copied from an original. It has taken a while to get a fabric and colour that was the same as the original but the wait was worth it.

The WW2 raincoat by Kay Canvas features:

  • Cotton canvas fabric treated, compare this to the later war fabric the Kay Canvas raincoats weigh about 1.5 kg.
  • Closed by 5 large buttons, to hold the buttons on and to prevent the stitching ripping holes in the fabric they are sewn with a small button on the reverse side just like the originals.
  • Internal storm flap.
  • Button and tab below the button closures to bring in the bottom of the raincoat if needed.
  • All seams are taped.
  • On the back of the shoulders it has several round holes cut into the fabric to allow some air circulation and breathability. The holes are covered by a panel (sometimes called a flap) the panel is sewn down on the top and sides and just the bottom is left unsewn to allow the air in. So it does not look like a flap from behind it all looks sewn down.
  • Several small holes under the arm pitts for breathability.
  • Two hand pockets with rivets on the edges of the pocket for strength, pocket designed changed during the war the earlier ones had straight pockets.
  • Tabs on the sleeves.
  • Collar can be worn down or pulled up.

These are made like the war time raincoats and constant folding and crunching up of the coat may like the originals loosen the taping on the inside as they are not as flexible as modern taping on modern waterproof clothing, so if this happens you will need to glue the tape back on to retain the waterproofness of the coat.

This raincoat is made by Kay Canvas and is different to other replica raincoats.

Size measurements.

These are the actual sizes when the jacket is laid out flat on the floor, these are designed to be worn loose over your cloth, these are not made from modern breathable fabrics so the loose fitting is designed to give some air circulation.

Chest is measured across the chest from under each arm. The back length is measured from the back of the neck seam to the bottom of the jacket.
