ABOUT THE DESIGN:
These great vintage US military cold weather jackets are made from a 100% Aramid. Aramid fibers are a class of heat-resistant and strong synthetic fibers. They are used in aerospace and military applications and for ballistic rated body armor. Super warm and wind-proof as well. 2 side-pockets, 1 pencil pocket on the sleeve and a velcro opening on the top back, which contains a pull-tab so you can be pulled out of a burning tank or helicopter. Hopefully, it wont come to that.
On the back is a Panzerknacker Tank design. German Tanks were a widespread tattoo in the prisons and camps after WWII to show disdain for the Soviets. They later became a symbol of anti-establishment and anti-government.
On the front pocket is the MIR Eagle logo. In Russian prison subculture, this type of symbols 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".
Skull Tabs on the collar flap.
