DESCRIPTION

The M42 color was Olive Drab #3. The coat consisted of four front patch pockets with two button snaps on each, along with a unique dual-zippered knife pocket located on the upper lapel which was designed to contain a switchblade pocketknife.

The M42 was mostly worn by Paratroops assigned to Airborne units. The M42 was eventually phased out in favor of the new M1943 Uniform which was a darker green, OD #7. Despite this, various individuals chose to keep their M42s in order to show their veteran status.

  2. Equipped with a waistband
  3. Talon zipper
  4. Military marks, Contract NO., Military code NO., and Stock NO., as the original version
