The M-69 Air Transport Coat
The M-69 Air Transport Coat.
Worn in WWII by officers and crewmen on aircraft carriers from the North Pacific to the Atlantic.
On long haul runs and long-range sub-hunting missions.
The stakes, never higher. The weather could be relentlessly unforgiving.
Expeditionary outfitting, absolutely essential.
