    M-64 Jacket.

    Post by Easy Gee on Wed May 16, 2012 3:06 pm

    Hi Guys.

    Thought I would share one of my favourite French Jackets with you, this one has the original hood, and is clearly dated 1969, not bad for a 43 year old Jacket no Wink



    Note the internal sleeve cuffs, which were dropped from the F1 jacket.

    And the detachable Hood ,sometimes used as a Helmet cover.

    Oooohh, is that a German built French jacket then? Isn't Warein a German contractor?

    A great piece all the same, Dr. Gee!

    Thanks sh4pak, glad you like this one,I love this one too Because they're not exactly common,and especially because it is the same age as me Wink

    Ronny, The Warein company is based in Mayenne, France, but may well be involved in German uniforms too, but I do not know a great deal about BW stuff, it's not really my thing, oh and thanks for calling me DR Gee, I like this it appeals to my sense of humour, I wish I had a doctorate in some intellectual subject, sadly I'm as thick as two short planks:lol:

    Salut, and here's another one from my collection, this one is a later dated model,possibly one of the last run, before this model was introduced as the F1 Jacket.

    Another lovely piece Gary!

    Thank you for the Warein info, I had put them down as Germans for sure!

    The construction og the first jacket reminds me a lot of the Mehler & Fulda-made Sumpftarn jackets for German BGS in the same period.

    Salut, here's my third M-64 Jacket,dated 1978, this one is very faded, and has lot's of usage, just how I like them.Hope you do too!!!




    This one differs from the rest in that the storm flap runs the whole length of the from,rather than just a small piece of cloth that covers the neck area.

    Here's a 100% FFL jacket, due to the shortened elasticated waist /pocket area. And the evidence of original thread to attach brevet,lozange and unit insignia. This one is dated 1977, I would like to think that it "could" have been worn in Kolwezi??
