    The MK3 Jacket, very warm and insulated.

    I honestly dont know what the Velcro strap is for...

    Concealed Hood

    NSN Label

    Virtually brand new, but I think it is of earlier issue...

    First Label

    Second Label

    A clearer pic of the velcro strap, earlier issue is in lighter grey

    Both Jackets....

    Velcro strap

    Same function as the beaver tail on a para smock. goes between the legs, hold flap down across rear end and comes up front of matching trousers and around the trouser belt to hold the ensemble together so that the two do not separate when blown out of an aircraft on an ejector seat or otherwise.
