Kay Canvas have made the women's version of the popular M43 combat jacket, now you have an alternative to the M41 jacket to wear over your HBT's or wool shirt.
Designed after the men's M43 uniform, the women's M43 was approved in late 1943 and was intended for wear as a field jacket for cold weather. The WW2 women's M43 jacket is ideal for the European weather (summer or winter) the longer length than the M41 and the cotton sateen outer and a thin poplin cotton liner makes for a warmer and more practical field jacket.
These quality replica jackets are made from the same material and are the same design as the original WW2 jackets.
The M43 Women's combat jacket by Kay Canvas has all the features of the originals including:
These have been made to modern UK women's sizes and are sized in UK sizing not the original US sizing.
The chest size is measured when the jacket is laid flat and are measured across the chest from seams under each arm. Please note this is not the size it will fit, it is the actual measurement of the jacket so you will need to allow space to move and to wear a shirt, jumper or liner underneath. The back length is measured from the base of the neck collar to the bottom of the jacket. The sleeve length is from the seam under the arm to the end of the sleeve cuff. If you are unsure of your size simply measure a jacket that you already have and compare the measurements.
