Danish M71 Civil Defense Jacket
In the 1970's the Danish government needed a jack(et) of all trades. As a civil defense worker, you could be putting out a house fire one day and building a flood wall during a rainstorm the next. Not to mention, there was always the fear of the Cold War going hot. The Danish answer to this problem? The M71 Civil Defense Jacket, which is just as fashionable as it is functional.

Predecessor to the Danish M84 Civil Defense Jacket, this jacket is a little heavier at benefit to the user, and a lot more subtle. Despite them being made in the 70s and 80s, these remain in excellent condition. It sports many of the same features as the M84 such as being fire retardant and size adjustable, while having a more subdued overall look for everyday wearing.

Specs
  • Water resistant
  • Fire retardant fabric treatment
  • Drawstring adjustable waist
  • Drawstring adjustable chest
  • Four large front pockets with Velcro flaps
  • Shielded, heavy duty zipper with flared pull tab for ease of use with gloves
  • Epaulette straps on shoulders
  • Button wrist fasteners
  • Danish Civil Defense Force emblem on right shoulder
  • Reinforced stitching on elbows
  • Made of 100% cotton
  • Internal cotton netting on upper half of chest and back

A phenomenal jacket

Super comfy, and amazing pockets. However, despite being in basically flawless condition, my jacket arrived missing the two buttons for its left shoulder. It’s an easy fix though, as the right shoulder came with both of it’s buttons.

awesome!

Great fit, looks terrific. Struggling with calling it a jacket, though, because the thick material layers make it more like a coat. Still would absolutely recommend.

Excellent thick coats

Got TWO of these in the recent gumball which was amazing. These things are thicker than you'd expect and I'm a god damn idiot for trying them on when it's blazing hot out. Gonna be coming with me skiing this year I think just for general walking around in the alps

Great Jacket

Got a clean functional jacket that looks good. Will say it is heavy though, like a jacket you'd see a welder wearing to protect from sparks and metal shards.
