I ordered the jacket in size large. It is actually an 88-92 Austrian - which is normally a small - but the coat does fit like a large. Thus, size large here is good for size 40-42 US.
Coat is amazing - if not brand new then rarely ever worn, most likely never saw field use. Touch, heavy cotton/blend material. Solid zippers and normal Austrian large buttons. Pockets are spacious and well positioned.
Collar is great - waist string is great - bottom string is somewhat annoying - too tight - I pulled mine out - but if you like that sort of thing it is there for you.
This is a great purchase - high quality, excellent condition and very good price for what you get. This is one tough jacket.
Of note is that aparently European Large sizes run small, as the Large jacket I ordered and received fits snug and the arms are a bit short, coming in above the wrist. The overall length of the jacket is a bit short, with the bottom coming in at my waistline, at the beltline.
If you normally wear a large, order the X-Large so as to have room and hopefully longer sleeves.
I would recommend that if you usually wear Medium, buy the Large size.
Thank You Keep Shooting for another great surplus item!
