    Original 2006 Dated RAF MK3 Cold Weather Flying Jacket - Size 7

    Item details

    An original Royal Air Force MK3 Cold Weather Flying jacket made by 'Ballyclare' in 2006. 

    This pattern of jacket was introduced into service with the RAF in the 1960s and stayed in issue for decades. This example is a more recent manufactured jacket but retains many of the same details as the original jacket. It is made from a ventile cotton which was popular with the RAF for many years due to its very good waterproof and windproof qualities. Metal 'YKK' brand zippers are fitted throughout and the cuffs fasten with velcro. A pen pocket is located to the upper left sleeve and a drawstring is located to the bottom seam. Between the outer layer and the lining is a mess liner which is intended to keep the wearer at a good temperature. There is also a hood concealed inside the jacket which pulls out through the back of the neck and there is a large fishtail inside the jacket which is held in place with velcro. 

    Inside the jacket the original label is still present and bears details pertaining to size washing instructions. 

    The jacket will fit a taller person with around a 36" - 38" chest. When laid flat it measures - 

    Chest - 24"
    Inside arm - 22"
    Outside arm - 26 1/2"
    Shoulders - 19 1/2"
    Length - 25"

    The jacket is in good condition but has plenty of signs of wear, particularly to the cuff and the bottom seam. Please take time to study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that this is a vintage, pre-owned jacket with some small issues commensurate with age.

    A nice example of this classic RAF flying jacket.
