The Austrian Army Field Jacket is an authentic military surplus jacket from Austria. Austrian soldiers are issued this field jacket for use during the Spring and Fall where the weather is not cold enough to warrant a heavy duty jacket but weather dictates the need for an outer layer.

Austrian Army Field Jacket
The Austrian Army is unique in many ways including their decision not to use a formal camouflage pattern. Articles produced for use by the Austrian Army are made using a distinctive olive drab green. Once you are familiar with this shade of olive drab green you can quickly recognize items like this field jacket as being from the Austrian Army by the use of this color alone.
While the color on Austrian Army issued equipment is unique, it is far from the only unique aspect of this field jacket. The material used to produce this field jacket is RipStop material which will help prevent any rips or tears from ruining the jacket. Most modern military forces no longer use RipStop as it costs more than traditional fabrics. This field jacket also has a vintage look that is not overly military, perhaps making it the only military issued jacket that is truly "urban" camouflage. You can wear this field jacket in a public setting and only those familiar with the Austrian Army would recognize it as a military jacket.
Decent used field jacket, nice material and well built. I got the III/IV-96/100 which looks like US Medium with some room for shirts underneath. My jacket is a little faded and does not look like the one in the picture.
Review byejd Verified Buyer
I recently bought one of these from Varusteleka and was horribly disappointed. The item was heavily worn and missing many zipper pulls. I threw it right in the garbage.
However, the one I received from KeepShooting was apparently brand new with "made in Austria" tag still attached. A wonderful, lightweight field jacket that doesn't look overly military and is exceedingly high quality. Fit me like a glove, too. I adore Austrian surplus clothes as they fit my Anglo-Saxon-descended self like very few civilian items in the US will.
Functional lightweight jacket
Review byJulio Verified Buyer
I can't speak to the durability of this jacket because I just received it yesterday. It appears to be very well made and practical. It looks to be brand new with no missing buttons or wear. It's only a single layer with no lining, so it's definitely good for warmer weather. I'm 6'-0" and 180 lbs and the medium (Austrian V-VI) fits me perfectly, with room for a light sweater or fleece under it. The pockets are great with smooth-running YKK zippers and elastic loops in the shoulder pocket for pens and such. All in all, a functional jacket with a stylish look at a great price.
I've already bought a spare!
Review byHarry Verified Buyer
These are totally awesome. Looks good, quality material, and deep pockets. You could easily pay triple for a less quality jacket at the big brand camping stores.

This has quickly become one of my favorite jackets. It is well made, looks nice, and breathes well in hot weather. For the price it simply cannot be beat. Buyers be aware that there are multiple versions - some are cut slightly differently and have different features.
Good thin Jacket

Great for spring and fall, I don't see this falling apart.

Good quality, light weight, all around durable.
Review byShane Verified Buyer
This jacket is great! It has the impression of looking like a regular department store jacket, while still having the versatility of a tactical jacket. Thanks Keep Shooting!
Very good low cost jacket
Review byDevin Verified Buyer
I picked up one of these because of the super low price. After receiving a medium jacket I discovered that the sleeves were a tad bit short, so I contacted keepshooting and got an exchange for a larger size. Keepshooting customer service was fast and effective.As for the jacket it's made of a moderately thick material good for cool and cold days. The pockets have elastic for holding items securely and the jacket is made of high quality ripstop fabric. The zippers are also very good and the velcro spots are an extra bonus. This is one of the newer versions of Austrian surplus clothing and is brand new.So get one.
Well made used surplus
Review byJoe Verified Buyer
Ordered 2 at this price. 1 came with button sleeves& missing some buttons & zipper tabs,2nd with Velcro sleeves & intact zip tabs. Well made ripstop textiles. Roomy pockets bigger than US current issue a plus. Looks smart and not take that hill cammo pattern blends well in urban setting. Tough & durable thanks again
