    Current JGSDF field jacket

    Post by ripcord on Wed Jan 17, 2018 3:58 pm

    Recently arrived issue JGSDF field jacket.

    This type is made of a Cordura like fabric.  Very rugged and somewhat water resistant, it  is a green dominant type.

    Cut similar to the classic M65, but longer in lenght ..

    Very nice find! Reminds me of a mixture of an M65 and M51. I find it odd that it's in the normal green variation, most field jackets I've seen are the brown dominant.

    Thank you..

    This type of field jacket to me feels more like a foul weather/ adverse conditions use garment.

    Most field jackets I've seen are cotton or a blend containing some cotton.

    This one is all synthetics so it does have a good degree foul weather resistance..

    Fairly certain that brown dominant field jackets are more akin in fabric type to conventional field jackets.
