From £59.99 £49.99

American WW2 M1942 Jump Jacket reinforced model.

This is the classic Normandy M42 paratrooper Jump jacket with the reinforced pockets. For Operation Overlord, the D-Day landings the US Para's modified the M42 jump suit by adding elbow patches and they reinforced the edges of the pockets so they could carry heavier loads.

The Normandy jump jacket used by the 82nd Airborne and the 101st Airborne Divisions on Operation Overlord, the D-Day landings.

This American WW2 M1942 reinforced jump jacket is made by Kay Canvas Manufacturing and is one of the most accurate M42 jump jackets available.

The “Kay Canvas” M42 jump uniform has been researched with help from various people including the "Screaming Eagles" re-enactment group.

This is more accurate than other M42 jump jackets as it is has the correct style of press studs (only the outer part of the stud is black the rest is nickel) which are made by "Scovill" and the zips are made by "Talon" (both war time manufacturers) its the correct design and the extra finishing touches like the press studs that make the difference.

  • Scovill Mfg Co press studs.
  • Nickel press studs with a black front.
  • Talon branded chrome zip.
  • Chest sizes are correct sizing just order your normal size.
