WW2 101st Airborne M42 jump jacket by Kay Canvas 2022

From £74.99 £62.49

American WW2 M1942 Jump Jacket fully badged with the 101st Airborne Division shoulder patch.

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.

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

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.
