This WW2 Mountain Troop Jacket is a 1942 dated mint original. It does not look like it was ever worn or washed. This style of jacket was extensively used by the members of the 10th Mountain Division during World War Two. This type of jacket featured a large pocket on the back that could be used as a substitute backpack. There are even internal suspenders in this jacket to help support the load on the back.
This type of jacket is one of the harder to find WWII Mountain Troop uniform items. I was very happy to add one in such nice condition to my collection.
