I imagine that filing paperwork in an office setting can get quite chilly under certain circumstances. But that is nothing compared to the freezing temperatures officers may face in the field during the winter season, which was probably one of the deciding factors when designing a new field jacket for German military police forces in the late 20th century. The German police field jacket was originally designed for and used by members of the feldjager, or military police of the German Bundeswehr, known to us Americans as the unified armed forces of Germany. As noted, each German police field jacket offered by Keepshooting.com is an authentic piece of German military police surplus and makes an excellent choice for collections and real-world utility.
Though each German police field jacket appears to have seen issuance at one point or another, they remain in great condition. As such, they show little wear and are free from the typical rips, tears, stains and scents that are characteristic of previously issued military surplus clothing. If you are looking for a lightweight cotton field jacket for an unbelievably low price, then look no further than our German police field jackets.
Constructed from 100 percent baumwolle, or what we stateside like to call "cotton," the German police field jacket is a lightweight, olive drab field jacket suitable for layering and providing warmth during the autumn months. Featuring both a full-length hook-and-loop closure as well as snap fasteners, this field jacket is one that is capable of being bundled tightly so as to lock in the warmth. Each also boasts adjustable cuffs in addition to a number of other features that aid in the comfort of the wearer, including vented underarms. And if pockets are your forte, then the German police field jacket is primed to become your favorite. Each sports zippered chest pockets on the outside and buttoned pockets on the inside – not to mention the pen and pencil slots also found on the interior. Note, however, that overall style and pocket inclusions and locations with this jacket may vary. As they were produced over a wide range of time, small variances exists among the jackets.

It's a worn out jacket that was used for some strange tactical purpose. No hand pockets! It's a very interesting looking jacket and I wear it all the time. Not too stuffy, but I've pulled it off in freezing weather without much problem.
Awesome for the price. Sizing appears to run just a tad large. I grabbed a small and it hangs a little loose. I'm about 5' 6''. The jacket itself is in very good condition. One small rip on the right sleeve, but otherwise very sound overall. The shoulders seem to be supported by a plastic liner, presumably to help keep its shape. Pockets on the outside, pockets on the inside, and even a few slots for a pen or three. Good deal.
Only had one snap/button on collar that was missing. No significant fading of color, and no rips, tears. Velcro along front of jacket and cuffs showed some signs of wear (still serviceable though). This is a unique jacket, and for $5.00 you can't beat it!
This is a great jacket and the fabric that it's made out of is tough as hell. I ordered a large, and felt it was a bit big, but I'll take it for the price. The only complaint i have against it is the plastic that goes through the shoulders to help them keep form has broken down a big creating a loud plastic sound while doing too much movement in the back area.
Jacket arrived very clean in heavy plastic bag. patches where removed. i'm guessing there is a place for a internal holster, as there are two lace points. Jacket is rated up to 95 degrees Celsius.
Solid quality, thick elastic band across the back, and a comfortable fit for me.
My only problem is with the pockets. It would be nice to have some front pockets at the hips, and the chest pockets can be slightly awkward to access. Both are very minor problems, especially considering the must-have price.
The jacket I received is in new condition, and is very comfortable. Anything German is usually made with quality. Fast shipping as always, and it goes perfect with the German Police hat.
