The M-1942, also known as the "Frogskin" jacket was issued to the US Marine Corp during WWII, with the unique camo pattern developed for a jungle type environment. The jacket was designed to be multi functional and could be worn reversed with the so called "Beach" side out, which is in the same pattern but in sandy brown color.
Buzz Rickson's have carefully reproduced this garment according to the original one with all the wartime spec. Their version of the Buzz M-42 is produced of sturdy quality herring bone twill, "HBT", cotton fabric with all the correct and authentic details. The jacket is fully reversible and has one upper and one lower pocket on each side, meaning you will always have two outer and two inner pockets no matter which side you choose to wear turned out.
