This is Buzz Rickson's version of the pullover used by the US Navy in the 40s known as the gunner smock.Originally intended to be worn as a protective outer layer worn on top of the other garments. The oversized hood is shaped to wear on top of a helmet and even if you do not, it sure gets an interesting shape. The parka has a single pocket with a pocket flap. It's overlapped at the front buttons for extra protection. Thats the origin of the name "Gas Protective". The smock has a draw string around the hood and one at the waist. It can also be tightened around the neck by tying the two straps located on each side.
