Rated 1 out of 5 by from I ordered a Large. What I got was about a 54 in chest with very short arms. Yes, technically that is a large. I'm about a 42-44 chest. Great camo pattern. unacceptable fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a treat-dated 1958-some patching-fit really well as a medium (I wear a 44 coat). Looks like it came right out of the Belgian Congo. Snaps only-no zippers. My friends were jealous.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The jacket has been repaired in large portions and several areas are in need of repair. Perhaps because of the age or country of origin that is all that was available. However for my intended purposes of displaying with related items, it will be unusable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jacket was in excellent shape. Every button/zipper works. I'd say THIS is unissued. Really shows you how serious the Belgians were about the congo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mine was "used plus" condition,if there is such a thing.Had giant sewing repair on the arm that was pretty cool, blends in with the camo so not overly noticable..Someone spent a lot of time years ago working on this jacket,LOTS of buttons and no zippers as it was dated 1958 the year before i was born, very cool when you think about it!.Real brass snaps,nice hood.Just a neat jacket for the money.Got an XL and would buy another if they ever come available again,mustyness finally gone.LUV IT!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This post war jacket is close to the ww2 German design. Short waisted, roomy in the shoulders and has adjustable snaps for the waist. Made of an almost canvas thick cotton similair to wearing a zeltbahn. Better in construction than American M-65 (they're not made in america any more). Will check pattern in the spring, basically Italian '29 pattern with some black shapes and interspersed white borders. American M-65 is 29 pattern with black added. Will not fit self-propelled stomachs. A+

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My jacket was never issued. It has all sorts of extra features like a hood and a flap attached to the bottom of the back of the jacket that goes under your crotch and buttons to the bottom of the front of the jacket. It also gets stiff as a board after you wash it, like it was made of canvas instead of cloth. Way to much starch. I will have to wear it and "break it in".
