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

Good Jacket

Thiccer that expected and that isnt a bad thing. Mine appears to be brand new. Has a heavy duty zipper in the center, 4 decent size pockets and a collar that you can button up like a mandarin. I'm 5'8" 153 lbs and a size 03 fits like it was made for me.

High Quality

Very high quality jacket and I am very impressed by how well it fits. I kind of took a guess on the sizing even with the conversion chart, but I guess I got lucky.

Good thick jackt

The jacket is nice, thick and makes an awesome outter layer to an outfit. It is cut very close to the old airforce abu jackets except it has slightly shorter sleeves.

A handsome lad in his new jacket

I have recieved much attention from women and animals alike, surely because this is a most excellent jacket and nothing to do with my storage of dried meats and candy in the pockets of this jacket.

Good quality, but high variation

Bought two, one size apart, for me and a buddy. One came in almost-unused condition and the other was quite worn and faded. No functional damage and the wear helps complete the milsurp look anyway, so no big complaints here. Quite heavy; less worn one was noticeably very stiff, but softened with a few weeks' regular wear.
