This is the first pattern reversible ski parka ever made for ski and mountain troops. Original
WWII pictures show this parka being worn by ski troopers while training at Mount Rainier
National Park prior to Camp Hale, and also at Camp Hale. All zippers are original
WWII “talon” zippers. Parka has both original draw strings (one at bottom to tighten jacket
across waist and one for the hood). There are a few small stains on both green and white sides.
This version is a lot harder to find than the later fur trimmed reversible parka. Price: SOLD

WWII Overcoat, Parka Type, Reversible With Pile Liner “1943 Pattern”
This is the 1943 pattern of the "Overcoat, Parka Type, Reversible." It was a full length parka
with a hood, offering full body protection from the head to below the knees. It was reversible
with an olive drab side and a white snow camouflage side. A long zipper closed the front with a
button flap over it, plus three buttons at the neck to close the hood. There were two hand-warmer
slash pockets above the web-belted waist and two large cargo pockets below (on the OD side).
The bottom hem and the hood both had snaps that could be used to adjust the size. The sleeve
cuff could be drawn tight with a two position strap and buttons. The button-in pile liner had
knitted cuffs at the wrist to help seal out the cold. (Description is from www.olive-drab.com)
This particular parka looks to have been unissued. Olive drab side is near mint while the white
shows some fading and stains from age. Original tag says the parka is a size 38 and dates it
to “July 11, 1943.” Original web chin strap belt is still in place. This parka was minimally worn
at Camp Hale by the 10th Mountain Division but is still part of their history. It’s rare to find this
with the original tag. Price: SOLD

stamped “Camp Hale” on the inside. Manufactured by “G & R Co.” and are a size Medium.
Marked “M” and “US” on the inside. The large round leather patch on the outside distinguishes
these from the later 1943-1945 version. The white ski gaiters were prized by ski troopers as their
unique issue gaiters different from all other soldiers in the army. They typically wore these on leave
while visiting Leadville, Colorado from Camp Hale as seen in period pictures. Gaiters were
primarily worn to keep snow from accumulating in the ski boot while skiing or snowshoeing
through deep snow. Price: SOLD

Jacket, Field, O.D., Cold Climate (M-1941)
This is an original early WWII Cold Climate Model 1941 Field Jacket. This is the type of jacket
used by the 1st Special Forces and 87th Mountain Infantry Regiment in combat on the Alaskan
Aleutian Island of Kiska during the summer of 1942. What is unique about this jacket making it
different from the regular standard issue M-1941, is the tightening buckles around the sleeves and
on the back of the jacket. The standard issue M-1941 simply had buttons on the sleeves whereas
these had the capacity to tighten for warmth. Also, the cold climate version was longer in overall
length and had a heavier liner on the inside. This jacket has the original tag dated “September 25,
1942” It is rare to find the original tag on this type of jacket as most were washed out. Size is a
34L. I have no way to verify the originality of the 1st Special Forces Patch but I do know the rest
of the jacket is WWII original and in excellent condition. The patch may also be original.

Jacket, Mountain
This is an original WWII issue mountain jacket. The mountain jacket was based on the same design as the
M-1943 field jacket in 1942 but had some unique traits to it that the M-1943 lacked. First, the mountain
jacket had the capacity to tuck the attached hood into a hidden pocket on the back top of the jacket.
Second, on the back of the jacket was yet another hidden pocket closed with a Talon zipper. This pocket
was added to the jacket so that ski troopers could add equipment and clothing for short day trips into the
mountains while skiing, hiking, snowshoeing or rock climbing. It was meant to serve as a small attached
backpack without actually being a rucksack. A ¾ length Talon zipper ran down the front of the jacket.
Also, the top two pockets had zippers that closed them so that important objects could be placed in there
and would not fall out while participating in outdoor activities. Next, the jacket also featured an external
belt loop that ran around the jacket, so that a web trouser belt could be slid through and used to tighten
the bottom of the jacket in stormy and cold conditions. Finally, the inside of the jacket had an attached
harness system that was meant to help support heavy loads, especially when the back zipper pocket was
being used as an attached backpack. These suspenders were often times removed however due to their
inefficient nature and their lack of comfortableness for some ski troopers. Specifics: This jacket does not
have the belt and the tag is washed out. It has all Talon zippers, the suspension system, and the attached
hood. It is a size 36R. Price: SOLD

Jacket, Mountain
This is an original WWII issue mountain jacket and Mountain Trousers. The mountain jacket was based
on the same design as the M-1943 field jacket in 1942 but had some unique traits to it that the M-1943
lacked. First, the mountain jacket had the capacity to tuck the attached hood into a hidden pocket on the
back top of the jacket. Second, on the back of the jacket was yet another hidden pocket closed with a
Talon zipper. This pocket was added to the jacket so that ski troopers could add equipment and clothing
for short day trips into the mountains while skiing, hiking, snowshoeing or rock climbing. It was meant to
serve as a small attached backpack without actually being a rucksack. A ¾ length Talon zipper ran down
the front of the jacket. Also, the top two pockets had zippers that closed them so that important objects
could be placed in there and would not fall out while participating in outdoor activities. Next, the jacket
also featured an external belt loop that ran around the jacket, so that a web trouser belt could be slid
through and used to tighten the bottom of the jacket in stormy and cold conditions. Finally, the inside of
the jacket had an attached harness system that was meant to help support heavy loads, especially when
the back zipper pocket was being used as an attached backpack. These suspenders were often times
removed however due to their inefficient nature and their lack of comfortableness for some ski troopers.
Specifics: This jacket has the original mountain web trouser belt and also has the original tag but it is
barely readable given age fade . Tag is dated “1943” (I can’t make out the full date) Jacket is manufactured
by the “Goodall Co.” It has all Talon zippers, the suspension system and the attached hood. It is a size
34R. This jacket is named and identified to the vet who is “Zimmerman.” His name is written at the top
of the jacket next to the size, along with his last four which are “5335” Price: SOLD

Jacket, Mountain and Trousers, Mountain (Vet Acquired Set)
This is an original WWII issue mountain jacket. The mountain jacket was based on the same design as the
M-1943 field jacket in 1942 but had some unique traits to it that the M-1943 lacked. First, the mountain
jacket had the capacity to tuck the attached hood into a hidden pocket on the back top of the jacket.
Second, on the back of the jacket was yet another hidden pocket closed with a Talon zipper. This pocket
was added to the jacket so that ski troopers could add equipment and clothing for short day trips into the

attached harness system that was meant to help support heavy loads, especially when the back zipper
pocket was being used as an attached backpack. These suspenders were often times removed however
due to their inefficient nature and their lack of comfortableness for some ski troopers. The trousers were
meant to be specific for ski and mountain troops with the stirrups at the bottom which prevents snow
from getting onto the soldiers skin and the pants riding up while skiing. Specifics: This jacket has the
original mountain web trouser belt and also has the original tag but it is barely readable given age fade .
Tag is dated “1942” (I can’t make out the full date) Jacket is manufactured by the “Goodall Co.” It has
all Talon zippers, the suspension system and the attached hood. It is a size 38R. This is an original vet
estate sale acquired pair of mountain trousers. These are in used combat condition with stirrups intact,
