Vietnam Jungle Fatigue Jacket (Dated 1970)


Recommended Posts

Yes, those tiny sizes are still found in unissued condition, like this one. A NOS boonie in 6 5/8 or 6 7/8 can be easily found online and would match the top.

When I first saw it I didn't think it would fit me because it's xsmall (I'm a chest size 38R), but it fits good.  I think I read somewhere that they made these oversize so they would be loose fitting for cooling purposes.  Although it's not loose fitting on me, it fits well.  Prior to getting this, I picked up a pair of the jungle fatigue pants dated 1969 size small reg (I'll post a pic of that when I have time).  The pants are well used and faded with stains, but no rips tears or fraying.  The zipper fly was no longer functional, so I had it replaced by a seamstress.

They were definitely made to be loose fitting to allow for airflow.
