Not sure what I have here and who (all ?) it would have been issued to.

Im mostly curious about the piping that runs full length of the sleeves and why it was

designed that way. Very heavy jacket.

Used by Topside Watch personnel on submarines in the 60’s and 70’s. 
 

USCG may have also used them on the “wind” class icebreakers of the era. WAGB= Wandering Arctic Garbage Barge.

I have no idea on that piping. Maybe just a more weathertight method of construction......?  These are before my time. Maybe a “bubble head” will chime in. Just kidding, but seriously....

They were used by the USN surface forces too, especially in the Arctic regions
