Types of spring military jackets

Types of spring military jackets

When green grass has emerged from under the snow and the sun's rays shine until the evening, it's time to put your winter clothes deep in the closet. Although it is getting warmer outside, spring has its own rules - when you leave the house, you often come across rain and wind. Spring jackets that provide thermal comfort even during severe blows come to the rescue. If the protection against unfavorable conditions is to go hand in hand with a military cut, or maybe even camouflage, it is worth considering one of the military proposals contained in the article. We invite you to read!

Bomber jacket - not only for aviators

The history of these jackets dates back to World War I, during which US Air Force pilots needed warm clothing for open cockpits. The flight jacket was not forgotten during the second global conflict, when not only the US, but also the Royal Air Force proudly wore thick leather. Soon after, the men's bomber jacket became popular with civilians because they liked the high collars, military character and elegance of the outfit. Today's models may have a slightly lower collar and are usually not made of leather - nylon lined with polyester or cotton provides protection against the cold.

M65, the classic jacket of the American army

An interesting idea are also M65 Brandit jackets or jackets from another valued brand, modeled on the original models of the US Army. The sixty-five in the name comes from 1965, when the production of jackets began. Five years later, the M65 jacket went to Vietnam, where it proved its worth during the monsoons, so heavy rains in our homeland should not be terrible for it either. It is worth paying attention to models with a high stand-up collar and a warm cotton lining of a nylon or polyester outer layer with impregnation - this is a recipe for rain and wind. Sixty-five jackets have 4 pockets as standard, but they may differ in terms of regulation or the possibility of detaching the lining or the hood.

What are the varieties of camouflage transitional jackets?

A transition jacket can be defined as a model designed for changing weather, a bit thicker and better protected against rain than a standard bomber. A perfect example are neoprene jackets or cotton-lined Harrington jackets. People who like to wear a hood will also find fashionable transition jackets for themselves. Large pockets allow you to store numerous small items or accessories useful on out-of-town trips. It's easy to find a jacket with a camouflage pattern, and the most interesting idea is double-sided models - just turn the garment inside out so that instead of a solid color, there is a camouflage pattern on the top.

A fleece jacket is also a noteworthy spring jacket, as are the bombers and the M65 modeled on the model of the US Air Force. Many people appreciate fleece for its softness and being pleasant to the touch. The material additionally provides high thermal comfort, which is perfect for cool camping mornings or evenings. It is also worth considering a windbreaker or a poncho, which - thanks to their thinness - will also be useful in summer. People who are always cold will find the right solution by browsing through parka jackets. The long models are knee-length, making them fantastic for hiking in the downpour.
