Vintage WWII US Navy M-445 A Heavy Winter Flight Vest
This is a vintage original American made Aviator Heavy Winter Flight Vest, the original is a jacket but someone has chosen to cut off the sleeves from this and made a vest out of it instead, maybe because the sleeves were too worn. The M-445 A Heavy Flight Jacket was used by the US Navy through out world war two.
This vest is vintage but in great condition. The surface of the leather is painted in a dark brown color and the top layer has a few small cracks in some places, but it appears to be that these scratches are only on the surface. As this is made of sheepskin, it is extremely warm and is guaranteed to keep you warm during cold winter days. Wear it above on a denim jacket as Douglas does in the picture or on top of a heavy flanell shirt to help you stay warm during autumn.
