  1. Jeep caps are back! These beautiful caps are made to last and keep your head nice and warm. Great color. Visors are leather or waterproof fiber board. https://www.wwiiimpressions.com/products/200
  2. I do see that you are asserting that OD#2 was the standard for design specification purposes regardless of the outcome and I agree with you. Tom's remarks that web sites indicating OD#3 on field jackets as erroneous could have been misinterpreted by other readers to suggest that the color of our M41 jackets was wrong since the they leaned more towards OD#3. I feel the need to defend our product for this reason. Here is a photo of a swatch of the interior unfaded side of an original "5oz" M41 jacket fabric. This swatch sits on top of one of our M41 jackets from our last run. I have weig
  3. Just saw a post on the GI Reenactors Help page about this ebay listing and thought it would be a good time to return back to this discussion with some more information to reinforce my assertions. OD#2 may have been the intended color for the initial contracts to produce the M41 Jacket but over time this spec was not set in stone and changed. Indeed, many Army contracts for hundreds of thousands of jackets had to be completed and delivered with whatever the contractors could get their hands on which the Army allowed for. Here is just such an example of the M41 jacket in OD#7. https://www
  4. Negative. The strap on style was from a spec dated 1939. The slip on design was spec'd in 1942. I've got the specs to back this up.
  5. Yes they are. See... http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/58139-airborne-us-paratroopers-gloves-late-war/
  6. These are genuine WWII US Army issue M42 horsehide riding gloves. Note the slip on design and lack of adjustment strap on the palm side. They are the style that was approved at the beginning of American involvement in WWII. They were also the style that was issued in mass to the paratroops. You can always tell the M42 design because soldiers would flip up the hem. You can't flip the hem on the earlier M39 style gloves. Everyone always assumes that the earlier M39 strap on style was the style used by paratroops but it is NOT. Sure there were M39 strap on style gloves in the system and
