    sequal of my collection of Austrian Armed Forces items, textiles/clothings and equipment of the 1960s and 1970s,
    mostly NEVER WORN, respectively NEVER USED

    There are one or two differences of this first version Feldjacke 75 to models later on (1976/77 - 2002):
    1.) This field jacket was made of 100% pure cotton. All others were produced in a mixture of cotton & polyester [65% : 35% or vice versa]
    2.) The zipper in front is a very heavy duty model, silver-coated and pretty short

    While my commission in a clothing depot, such field jackets were never handed out, AND I haven't seen any of this kind.
    In 1998/99/2000 I handed field jackets STILL without the velcro for name tag, which even became compulsorily almost 10 years earlier for recruits for their topmost item of clothing.
