DESCRIPTION
**THE M-42 FIELD JACKET FITS ONE SIZE SMALLER THAN THE TAGGED SIZE, PLEASE REFER TO OUR SIZEGUIDE FOR THE BEST FIT.**

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.
