Czech M60 Field Jacket - Raindrop Camo
The Czech M60 Field Jacket is an authentic Czech army jacket from the days of the Cold War. When Czechoslovakia was aligned with the Warsaw Pact during the Cold War, they would often adopt other Soviet aligned nations military equipment and modify it to make it uniquely Czech. These M60 field jackets are a great example of this as the base camouflage pattern is from East Germany's Strichtarn "Rain Drop" camouflage pattern with modifications made.
The Czech M60 Field Jacket was issued to soldiers in the Czechoslovak People's Army and was a central part of their official uniform. When you first pick up one of these M60 field jackets you immediately feel how durable it is. During the Cold War, the Czechoslovakian people took great pride in fielding an army that was competent, capable, and well prepared for any battle and that started by producing the best equipment.
With these M60 field jackets, the Czech army started with a well proven design for combat jackets. Produced from heavy cotton, these jackets were built to stand up to combat conditions. Most of the jackets are from the 1960s and 1970s and while they do look vintage, they are in better condition than today's combat jackets will be over a similar period of time. Recognizing how well the East German Strichtarn "Rain Drop" camouflage pattern performed in Central Europe, the Czech army used this pattern with a modification made to add a mottled backdrop which will help the jacket perform better when the enemy was using night vision.
