Description of productThe original Deck Hook Jacket was introduced around 1943/44 and was meant to be a replacement of the dearlier Deck Zip Jacket. The U.S. Navy was experimenting with a hook system to close the jacket. Its predecessor had a small sized zipper on the outside which sometimes froze in cold winter and was not to be opened with gloves.
Originals were only produced for one year which makes them highly collectible.
