German Military Jacket
Out of stock
Each German military jacket offered by Keepshooting.com is an authentic piece of German military surplus. These jackets were once pieces of standard-issue clothing and were originally designed for and issued to service men enlisted in the German heer, or army, which is one of the five service branches that make up the Bundeswehr, otherwise known as the unified armed forces of Germany.
Though we are unable to confirm issuance of these German military jackets, each appears to remain in great condition, requiring nothing more than a quick laundering and still fully capable of providing prospective buyers with years of service stateside. Likewise, these jackets are free from the typical rips, tears, stains and scents that often plague previously issued military surplus clothing. Those looking for a unique piece of German military history or a versatile, all-around jacket suitable for multi-season use should definitely give the German military jacket a look or two.
Heavier than a windbreaker but not quite a parka, our German military jacket is, as noted, a versatile jacket that is suitable for multi-season use. Boasting a cotton/polyester blend that offers comfort and durability alongside a score of practical features, the German military jacket is one that commands attention. It is secured via a traditional full-length zipper, but that is where traditional form stops and function cuts in. A removable rib-knit collar adorns the jacket and offers warmth for the wearer's neck. Those who prefer a hood, however, will love the stowaway hood housed within a small zippered pouch at the base of the neck. Of course, with the German military jacket, not everything is about warmth. The jacket also includes four underarm vents to offer a slight cooling effect where too much warmth may prove uncomfortable. Then there are the pockets. Four interior pockets (two at the breast and two at the waist) are joined by four exterior pockets (two at the breast and two at the waist), offering ample storage space for wallets, cellphones and other accessories.
As for the jackets themselves, the German military jacket is available in a single coloring only. Bucking the traditional olive drab characteristic of military surplus garb, the German military jacket is presented in a deep, forest green. Additionally, it is available in size large only.

I'm 5'8", 190 lbs, and the fit is "right there." With a heavy sweater added, it's do-able, but a bit tight, but without a sweater, or with a light one, it's just fine. Realistically, with the canvas weave and liner, it's not as if you really need much else, I'd estimate, until encountering sub-zero temperatures. Mine has adjustable liner collar cuffs, and underarm vent holes, and a two-way zipper (a very nice feature for extended days in the field). Mine appeared to be unused, and possibly unissued.
I'm thinking that this will be an excellent late fall/winter/early spring coat.
