    Not commonly seen aluminum zippered brown amoeba M61 parachute jacket.
    Very solid conditions for it's age  and the largest size I've seen; has faint para brigade markings on inside..

    Of note is fading of lime color into an almost yellow when compared to a newer garment.

    Very nice! Good comparison of the colors and what happens to them with use.

    Thank you guys..

    These jackets are indeed awesome..

    Here is another one that has been with me a long time.  This one survived a flood but did sustain some  damage.

    There is some fading but colors remain strong.
