  • Stories of the Jacket: The M-43 Field Jacket

    The M-43 field jacket is first and foremost a true piece of historical battle attire. First introduced in 1944 on the beaches of Normandy, right up until the end of the war in 1945, this jacket was a second skin to the brave GI’s of the Allied American Armies. Continuing its reign and colorful history, the M-43 was worn by both air forces and infantry during the occupation of post WWII Europe as well as in combat in the hills of Korea during the 1950s. Designed to suit servicemen’s needs for a well-fitted, warm jacket with the potential for added optional extras such as a hood and liner system, this field jacket provided it all. We at Cockpit USA are such fans of the jacket we produced a version, the Omaha Beach M-43 in its simplest form. Reproduced according to the slimmer fitting style of the 1940s original, this jacket is crafted from high-count 100% dense cotton poplin and boasts interior pockets and a soft cotton military specified label along with the contemporary addition of a bi-swing gusset behind the arm for ease and comfort of movement. For an added authentic touch, we even gave the jacket the Cockpit USA signature broken in look treatment, making it as close a model as possible of the original. Grab yours today!

  • Movie Monday: The Dirty Dozen

    Based on a novel of the same name by E.M. Nathanson, The Dirty Dozen is a 1967  film based on what was once thought a real group called 'The Filthy Thirteen'. Directed by Robert Aldrich of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? fame, this  pre D-Day WWII movie tells a captivating story of twelve convicts recruited specifically for a top secret mission. With the promise of their sentences being commuted, the long serving felons agree to take part in a pre-invasion mission to infiltrate and attack a meeting of dozens of high rankingNazi officers in order to reduce German response to D-Day. Filmed entirely in England and starring Ernest Borgnine, Charles Bronson, Lee Marvin, Jim Brown and John Cassavetes, the film was received by critics as both bold and gruesome, and considered controversial in its very explicit depiction of the horrors of war. While it may not be a lighthearted watch, The Dirty Dozen is certainly a Cockpit USA classic not to be missed.

It certainly made ours hit the ground!
