Cockpit USA & American Trench Modernize The Iconic Jeep Coat

Nov 4, 2019

Category: Style

The military coat has a long lineage of time-tested use, acting as the primary barrier to protect soldiers from cold, unruly climates as they fought overseas. From the timeless aviator’s jacket to the commonly-known officer’s variant, both Cockpit USA and American Trench have built a firm foundation by reintroducing some of history’s most lauded garments; and now, they’ve partnered to revive the great-looking Jeep Coat.

The Cockpit USA x American Trench Jeep Coat is a recreation of the iconic “Coat, Mackinaw, OD,” which was issued to soldiers in the field back in 1938. It wasn’t long before the original iteration would come to be known as the “Jeep Coat,” due, in large part, to its use by drivers and transport troops during the era. As an homage to the heavyweight garment, the modern Jeep Coat boasts a durable, water-resistant cotton duck outer shell, a comfortable 30-ounce wool blanket lining, and a handsomely-implemented shawl collar to keep the cold at bay. It’s both water and wind-resistant, thanks to its Ventile cotton outer, PrimaLoft silver insulation, and onion-quilt interior, and remains visually similar to its mid-century counterpart via a single-breasted closure and accented waist belt. You can pick up an example of this timeless military style on Cockpit USA’s website, where it’s retailing for $595.
