Jacket Combat Aircrew Temperate Mk2 £56.01 each DPM

The long bits with the holes through them on the side are sleeves, you puts your hands all the way to the cuffs. :D

Not sure what else you want to know.

Expensive item that had matching trousers with built-in braces, ankle map pockets and sewn-in baggy knees. Designed for helicopter crews so that they would look a lttle bit like soldiers but still be wearing flying suits, hence the spring-loaded pencil pocket and zipped chest pockets to minimise the FOD-dispenser tendency. The fold away hood was an expensive solution to a minor problem and a bloody irritation to wear. About as good a jacket as the ordinary green cold weather flying suit jacket, ie not very, but retaining a certain aircrew cachet. There was an all-green version that preceded the DPM version.

A curiousity, no more.

Thanks for that. And is my jacket pretty much useless?

It's not quite useless, you can wear it as a gash jacket still.. go fishing in it, car maintenance on chilly days, bit of airsofting. Whatever you want really. What use did you have in mind?

Answer to the allyness: its about as ally as an AGC clerk wearing a sniper smock! (yes i have seen this done complete with brand new flashes)

I have one and wear it when I'm out dogging - a not too dissimilar activity to parade night at the local ACF det. I'd say that this garment is therefore fit for purpose. I think the wiki rates it at 'Good Effort'?
