British DPM Tropical Shirt or Lightweight Jacket

Genunie issue 1980s British Forces tropical shirt or lightweight jacket. These were used by Royal Marines Commando and special forces in tropical and jungle operations. The shirts feature two large bulgy pockets on chest, field dressing pocket on upper arm, zip and button front and two epaulettes. The sleeves are wide with buttons so they can be worn down to prevent mosquito bites or folded up neatly. The tropical shirt underwent a minor modification in the early 1990s to increase the breathability of the fabric and reduce maintenance by stitching the edges of the pockets, but was replaced by the Soldier 95 system. Used condition, some items may have had the zippers removed for ventilation.

Available options are: 38L , 40S , 40L , 44R , 44L .
