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.

Cold War Cool

A great all-season coat. Clearly hard-wearing and very suitable as a work jacket. The Civil Defense patches add a subtle flash of color and a conversation starter. Pairs well with a fleece underneath for extra warmth. I've already gotten a couple compliments on it.

Only complaint is that the sleeves run a tad short. Otherwise the jacket fits great.

A little tight is alright

Fits tight, but perfect for not getting caught on branches, makes a fine choice for field work in the cold.
