Suitable for wearing in civilian life, too! (2007-12-24)
Imagine my surprise when, while shopping an online surf catalogue, I spotted a M-43 jacket clone being sold by a big surf label, and selling for over a hundred dollars!

I bought this jacket for winter WW2 history events and it got its first use during 4 days of continuous outdoor activity at a fly-in, where a front came through and brought high winds and temps in the 40''s. This jacket served its purpose well, keeping me warm during one of the coldest Novembers I''ve ever experienced. I didn''t have M43 pants, but wore unreinforced M42 pants instead (still historically correct, as many guys kept theirs instead of turning them in after D-Day). The big front pockets are deep enough to be used as hand-warmer pockets.
