    It has a little thing in the front to keep the bottom of the coat closed.

    Unlike most rain coats I have seen the back has no buttons for closing.

    An odd double button sleeve strap.The buttons are what I call "fun sized"

    Thank you Panzerwerk!I thought so,it is very light and there is no place for a liner.

    They didn't use a liner on those. That one has a contract date of 67. I've got a blue Air Force one too. Pretty neat jackets

    Thank you Fins!I love it.A overcoat I can wear all year round lol It keeps the wind off of you and lets in just enough cold to keep you comfortable.And it is in great shape.Had only one tear at the seam on the right shoulder that I had to fix.Took about 5min.Other than that it was good to go!
