The Jacket, Combat, Winter as it has been officially called by the U.S. Armed forces came into service in 1941. Originally it was a set consisting of lined hat, a lined bib and a lined jacket for winter. However, due to its functionality and casual look the jacket was soon favored by all members of the armed forces. Especially officers were keen of wearing it because it was warmer, more casual and more practical than any other military jacket that was in service in 1941. After the war it was one of the most copied designs due to its wide range of uses. Today, original Tanker Jackets are highly sought after items and can cost small fortunes if you can find one. The Pike Brothers 1941 Tanker Jackets follows a typical period example which had been privately tailored for and worn by an officer. This version has a thicker wool blanket lining and does not have the bi swing back or action back giving it a sharper appearance. With authentic 1940s Talon zipper, left opening, 2 chest pockets, one inner pocket and genuine tube knit wrist cuffs. On the bike this your jacket for shorter trips, especially on days when the air is chilly.
