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:
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.
These are the actual sizes when the jacket is laid out flat on the floor, these are designed to be worn loose over your clothing, these are not made from modern breathable fabrics so the loose fitting is designed to give some air circulation.
In general if you order your normal coat size there will be enough space to wear the raincoat over something like a tankers jacket.
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.
