Hey! I saw that on Grailed!
Now a trademark of high fashion, the bomber jacket and its long lineage of spinoffs are a piece that have made nearly as much impact on fashion as the ever-stylish M65 jacket. This collared tanker's jacket is nothing short of a certified hood classic when it comes to military surplus. The ones we got our hands on are in excellent condition, too.
Issued to vehicle crewman (hence, C.V.C., combat vehicle crewman) for the cold, this fire retardant jacket is as functional as it is a staple of fashion. Featuring a permanent FR fabric construction (typically Aramid, Nomex, or No-Melt Nylon), and a super comfortable quilted lining, you could weld in the cold and not worry about a stray spark or ember ruining your cool bomber jacket or, y'know, your skin.
It comes complete with all the trademark monikers of a bomber jacket - elastic cuffs and lower hem, zippered shoulder pocket for pens or your favorite cancer sticks, a turn-down collar with hidden hook and loop flaps to secure in an upright position, and two front hook and loop-secured hand pockets.
- 100% Permanent FR Nomex/Aramid/No-Melt Nylon construction
- Built-in quilted cold weather liner
- Elastic bottom hem/wrist cuffs
- Zippered shoulder pen/cigarette pocket
- Pop collar with hidden hook-and-loop flaps to secure in upright position
- Two hook-and-loop hand pockets
Follows standard US military sizing. You may want to size up if you want the jacket to be a little less fitted, as the interior tag suggests crewman do this if they are wearing the underlayers that go along with this.
Jackets are in excellent condition with all hardware intact, and with no stains, blemishes, cuts, or tears on the jacket. Jackets may have patches sewn onto the chest, or shoulder of the jacket from when they were in service.
