Details

These lightweight jackets are made from a 50/50, cotton/polyester fabric and are designed to be worn over other clothing. They are unissued and in their original factory plastic wrapping. 

The Smock, Windproof, DPM' was issued alongside the standard DPM Combat Jackets by the British Army. Aside from being made from a windproof material, it differed from the standard combat jackets in being cut to fit more loosely, allowing it to fit over other layers of clothing more easily, and in having an integral hood. Where the standard jackets were closed by a full-length zipper, covered by a buttoned flap, and buttoned cuffs, the windproof smock used velcro to close the flap over the zipper and to fasten the cuffs. The buttons fitted to the Windproof Smock (on the four, expanding front pockets, and the small arm pocket for the First Field Dressing) were all of an overlarge type, to ease use by cold or gloved fingers.
