Before the Poncho was ever introduced as raingear the
raincoat was widely used by the U.S. Army. Originally these came in both
mounted and dismounted versions, with many different patterns used in
the construction. Our raincoat is patterned with no shoulder vents. A
100% waterproof garment for practical use. The color of the fabric and
Rubberizing material is the Od shade that is lighter on the outside and
dark on the inside. These raincoats are authentically made using rubber
coated fabric on both sides, with seams glued and sealed together using
high strength cement. The Buttons are authentic in style and color and
are installed using a small button behind the material for added
strength, and are shanked just like the originals. Nickel plated rivets
are used on stress areas. We even include an authentic contractor
inspection tag inside the front storm fly as on originals. Cuffs include
authentic straps with rivet reinforcements. The pockets include the flap closures with rivet
reinforcements, and also are made with the reach-through opening for
access to trousers.
Be advised this is a rain protection
garment only. It is meant to be worn for a brief period of time as
required to stay dry. The original specimens (As is ours) were made from
a thin material that will not hold up to the same conditions as fatigue
and regulation uniforms were designed to withstand. However, holes and
tears can be easily repaired using a good high strength contact cement and a
piece of vinyl sheet backing.
Note: Some adhesive stains and touch-ups may be visible on some areas. Some parts may
be glued together due to overspread of adhesive. Some pulling pieces
apart using slight pressure may be needed. The rubberized material
is new and "sticky". In order to help getting in and out of the
raincoat it is advisable to wipe the interior of the shoulders and
sleeves with a dry lubricant like furniture polish or talcum power.
The fit has ample room for layering.
