These trousers are part of the
Uniform, Mountain which included a Mountain Jacket (Not available).
In the early years of WWII the Army allowed for a multitude of unique
uniforms for specialized troops requiring special uniforms.
Eventually the M1943 Field Uniform would replace the mountain uniform.
Mountain and ski troops felt that a uniform characteristic of the
styling of era along with practical nuances was necessary along with
many unique pieces of mountain equipment. Although developed by
mountain/ski troops, special operations units like the 1st Special
Service also wore them during operations behind enemy lines.
Our mountain trousers are
made the same type of windproof sateen as were the originals.
These high quality garments are exact duplicates of original mountain
trousers. These are perfect for 10th Mountain Div. and 1st Special
Service Force impressions. As they are new they depict that new shiny
look that sateen is so famous for. They have authentic brown buttons and
brass zippers, authentic fly and front pleats, cargo pockets and
zippered front pockets, and black elastic ankle tapes, Complete with an
authentic WWII style contractor label. Note: Be aware that the
pants run very small at the waist.
