MILITARIA COLLECTORS: EXTREMELY RARE VINTAGE 1950S CANADIAN ROYAL AIR FORCE (RCAF) MARK III PILOT'S WINTER FLIGHT JACKET. MADE BY TRADERS MANUFACTURING COMPANY LIMITED. INTERIOR ZIPPER SHOWS IT WAS TO BE USED WITH THE CORRESPONDING LOWERS.

STAMPED WATERBURY BUCKLE CO. BUCKLES ON THE FUNCTIONING ELASTIC WAIST ADJUSTMENT STRAPS. ALL BUTTONS, HOOD AND POCKET LACE PULLS, HOOD ETC. ARE PRESENT, LININGS ARE INTACT WITH NO TEARS ETC. AND IN EXCELLENT CONDITION ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THEIR AGE

ISSUES: SMALL TEAR ON SEAM AT BACK OF LEFT ARM, COUPLE OF SMALL PINHOLES, SOME DISCOLOURATION (FADING) IN INSIDE, ZIPPER TAPE IS RIPPED AT BOTTOM AND AFFECTS ZIPPER OPERATION. MISSING MAKER'S IDENTIFICATION TAG SO EXACT MANUFACTURE DATE AND SIZING ARE UNKNOWN. JACKET IS AUTHENTIC AND DID HAVE A TAG LIKE OR THE SAME AS THE ONE IN IMAGE ONE (1), THE JACKET SHOWN IN IMAGE ONE (1) YOU CAN SEE THE OUTLINE OF THE STITCHING ON MY JACKET WERE IT WAS. I KNOW THIS FOR SURE AS IT HAD THE TAG WHEN I BOUGHT IT BUT FELL OFF DUE TO WEAR AND WAS LOST OR TOSSED.

I BOUGHT THIS JACKET FROM A WELL KNOWN SPORTS/SURPLUS STORE ON YONGE STREET IN DOWNTOWN TORONTO IN THE EARLY 80S AS I WANTED TO HAVE A REALLY A UNIQUE WARM JACKET, THAT LOOKED SHARP AND WAS NOT BULKY. EVEN THEN IT WAS COSTLY. MAKES A GREAT MILITARIA HISTORICAL DISPLAY ITEM BUT IF YOU DECIDE YOU WANT TO WEAR IT WILL FIT SOMEONE WITHIN A RANGE OF 5'.5" -- 5'11" AND 135-170 LBS. I WAS NEARLY 6” AT THE TIME AND AROUND 160 LBS AND IT FIT ME SHORT AND HAD ENOUGH ROOM FOR A THIN SWEATER UNDERNEATH. THIS JACKET HAS WOOL INSULATION WHICH RETAINS HEAT EVEN WHEN WET. AND NATURAL FIBRES POCKET AND HOOD LINING THAT FEEL SOFT AND WARM WITH BARE SKIN UNLIKE SYNTHETICS. HOOD ROLLS INTO THE COLLAR I USED IT AS AN UNDETECTABLE HIDING/STORAGE/CARRYING PLACE FOR MY WALLET, WATCH ETC, WHEN KEEPING THEM ON MY PERSON WAS NOT PRACTICAL.

DIMENSIONS

WAIST CIRCUMFERENCE 42"
BASE OF ARMPIT TO END OF SLEEVE 19"
