The M-1943 field jacket was the successor of the M-1941 used during WWII. In WWII, the US military designed the M-1943 to solve the practical problems of the originally M-1941 field jacket nondurable and not carrying too many things. The M-1943 was a revolutionary jacket in U.S. Military history, which set the bar for future U.S. Army field jackets to come.
This M-1943 is made of cotton sateen, was originally issued with a removable hood and pile liner, making the field jacket extremely versatile in warm and colder conditions.

Very good M-43 replica, seems quite faithful to an original. The only (small) fault that I could find is that mine is missing a button under the collar; no big issue, i took care of it in less than 2 minutes!
This is a high quality and well-made jacket for the price. Fits me a little large but great to layer under. My only complaints would be that the chin strap is very tight-- hard to get around my neck when I want to fully button up, maybe just a me thing. Also, while it hasn't happened yet, the buttons seem in danger of pulling off, but considering it hasn't happened yet I'm confident they'll stay. Thanks bronson for a great fall/spring piece!
I am 182 cm. height and 104 kg. weight and bought size 44. It is perfect for me. It is heavy cotton with premium quality. Outer shell has smooth surface and little silky texture. This jacket is absolutely cool thing. I do not know where i may buy something better for this price! Thanks, Bronson!
Great jacket. High value and comfort.
I've been looking for a M43 Jacket for some time. The used ones on ebay looked in rough condition. Ones from Military Impressions, were poor quality, and cheaply made in appearance.
I am glad I stumbled upon Bronson's site. The jacket is cut to authenticate standards and color is correct! I get compliments all the time on my field jacket.
I have and will be ordering other vintage military clothing among other things. Your clothing is top notch, accurate time pieces, and excellent quality! Thanks Bronson!
merci à Bronson pour ses conseils pour le choix de la taille ; la qualité est parfaite, au niveau des meilleurs Japonais...
I am very impressed with quality of build, fabric, details and weight, authentic in every way.The fit is spot on for this particular jacket, a little oversized for layering.One
can go by the accurate measurements on
this sight. I’ve been a collector for many
years and I recommend it. Well done Bronson!
