ABOUT THE DESIGN:
These tough military surplus jackets belonged to Russian Spetznaz forces around the fall of the Soviet Union. Spetsnaz are the elite forces, similar to the American Navy Seals. These are light jackets, without a liner. They have two chest pockets and two really cool pockets on the back bottom. Drawstring waist.

On the back is the MIR Eagle logo. This type of Eagle was a powerful anti-establishment and anti-authority tattoo during the 50's and 60' . In Russian prison subculture, this type of symbol was usually meant to show disdain for the system and the Communist government. The eagle conveys the message "Strike first, Dont wait for them to hit you!"
MIR is a Russian word for "peace". But its an acronym for "Menya Ispravit Rastrel" meaning "Execution will Reform Me".

ON THE FRONT: SHTRAFBAT Division(~shtra'afba'at) comes from the Russian term "Shtrafniye Battal'yoni" meaning "Penalty Battalions". It was the name given to battalions that were drafted from various prisons and camps around USSR during World War II.
