British RAF Wet Weather Jacket
The British RAF Wet Weather Jacket is an authentic Royal Air Force jacket that is designed to be worn during wet and windy weather. Royal Air Force soldiers are issued this jacket to support operations on ships, in the field, and on base and it is worn to combat foul weather.
The British Royal Air Force is the premier air power in Europe and has been so since the formation. With a standing force of over 30,000 and a need to operate in all types of weather the RAF has issued a number of specialist uniform components. The mission of the RAF is critical to the success of the United Kingdom, so no operation can be stopped due to inclement or foul weather conditions. This makes the issuance of wet weather gear for ground crew to be one of the more essential parts of the RAF uniform components.
The centerpiece of the RAF wet weather uniform is this jacket that we now have available for sale. Officially this jacket is known as the RAF Foulweather Jacket and has seen a number of small design changes since it was first fielded. Soldiers in the RAF have been overwhelmingly pleased with the performance of this jacket in wet weather conditions and it has become a favorite of civilians after the RAF began to sell them as surplus. We have sorted these by size and found a small number of differences between jackets, some have been fitted with snaps on the storm flap while others have Velcro. Since these jackets were all previously issued, there may be some that come with unit patches or name tags.
