Details & Specs

As seen in use by Belgian commandos during numerous engagements with rebel factions during the Congo Crisis of the 1960s. In 1964, 350 commandos wearing irregular uniforms (including this jigsaw camo) were air dropped into Stanleyville (now Kisangani) to rescue hostages under guard at the Victoria Hotel. Over 1,800 Americans and Europeans, as well as 400 Congolese, were evacuated to safety.

Rugged history you can wear.

Each Jacket is in used condition, pre-tested by Belgian commandos during numerous activities. Each stitch is packed with history, but with plenty of life left for real world use.
