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

Nice Quality

These jackets are in nearly perfect condition and have the same sort of fit as most European blouses and jackets. A little heavy compared to technical gear from an outdoor company but I appreciate that it doesnt look like you are larping as a SWAT team or a ski instructor. Just a nice low key jacket

Pretty solid jacket

A pretty comfy jacket to wear, A little big but that just gives you room to wear an hoodie or sweater underneath it.
