  • We have an excellent reproduction of the famed Okinawa Boots available. These boots are made in Portugal by Pike Brothers of Germany and are a faithful recreation of the originals. Before now there has not been a good option for these boots. Originals are near impossible to find and sell at $800 when you do find them, so at that point you do not want to wear them. The Oki Boots repro years ago vanished and there are some terrible Chinese reproductions floating around that use original photos to lure you in and then sell you something that looks like it was made in kindergarten fashion class. These are made on a traditional "regular" width last, so order your regular boot size if you are whole size (unless you have wide feet you may need to bump up). If you are a half size, order the next size up. Please note these are made in European sizes (42 = 8R, 43 = 9R, 44 = 10R, 45 = 11R, 46 = 12R) and the sizes are on the box are correct, BUT underneath the buckle cuff (where it cannot be seen) the manufacturer was off by one shoe size on the marking, so for example an American 12R will be marked 13R. Don't panic, it is still a 46 / American 12R. For background, the Okinawa were made in the 1950's and are the US Army's first attempt at a modern jungle boot. The boots are basically WWII Double Buckle boots that have been redesigned with canvas parts for tropical climates. The lug soles were still stitched to the body of the boot so they could be replaced vs the later use a vulcanization process. The boots are often seen worn by early advisers who departed for Vietnam from Okinawa, hence the name. Learn More

  • The Individual First Aid Kit was part of the Marine Corps M-67 Field Gear development. This pouch and plastic insert was designed to replace the old style jungle 1st Aid Kit. These kits are both DSA 1970 dated so they are NOT later ARMY pouches. One pouch is in a little better shape than the other, but the one with a little more wear is marked on the bottom MAG41 DALLAS. This is from Marine Air Group 41 that was stationed in Dallas, TX. No contents, just the pouches and inserts. Learn More

  • This is a nice used M-65 field jacket in size Medium Regular with a fair amount of even fading, but no abuse or damage. The coat is missing the size tag in the neck so it is not dated, BUT I believe it is 1967 dated as the care and use tag does not have the instructions numbered. Starting in 1968 the instruction tags were numbered, so 67 is a fair guess. This is a nice jacket, just has a fair amount of honest wear. It would be perfect to take to the field. 60's era M65 jackets are tough to come by! Learn More

  • This is a USAF Field Jacket in size Medium Long in OD Green. Overall VG used condition. The coat has some wear through around the collar (see photos) and an L shaped repair at the bottom center (it is hidden when closed and worn). There are some other wear areas here and there, but overall it is a serviceable field jacket with life left. Just used enough you won't feel bad actually wearing it around.. These jackets have an interesting history. The Air Force issued them from the 50's through the mid to late 1960's before switching to the M-65 field jacket. They can quickly be spotted by their exposed snaps on the pockets and a large collar that contains a roll up hood. These are rare jackets and are hard to find in larger sizes. Learn More

  • This is an M-51 Field Jacket in size LR. This is a hard to find coat and includes the matching button in liner. The ink stamp is faint and I cannot make out the size well, but it measures out to be a large at a 46" chest. The outer shell has nice color with some fade and is free from defect. The button cuffs have 2 buttons on one side and one on the other (I will look and see if we have a spare). The liner still has nice ink stamps and is pliable / not funky. There is an area shown with what appears to be a burn hole possibly from cigarette etc. but it is not hard and flaky and does not detract. These are very hard coats to find and this one has the correct vintage liner. The fact it is all a size Large Regular makes it even better to actually wear. This jacket would be great to wear or collect. Learn More
