Can anyone give me any more info on this type of jacket. I was chatting to an old ex-crab over the fence the other day and I was telling him that I am going to Canada for christmas. He then scuttled off and came back with the above jacket, "You'll be needing this he says". It weighs a ton and has never been worn. He can't remember how he came about it but thinks they were part of an aircrew arctic survival kit. This would explain why it looks more civvie than tactical, (colour - blue). Label has stores ref. 22C 1240 which must make it old. Are they still available as an issue?
