Danish Civil Defense Force - Civilforsvaret - M71 - no orange triangle

- Advice on sizes > -

This Danish Civil Defence Force coat is made of 100% heavy cotton and so is easy to care for and wash. Designed to give weather protection as well as provide rugged durability when working on dirty outdoor activity, these jackets make excellent modern choice for similar use, whether that be in the garden, at work, or just generally out and about in the countryside.

The jackets date from a time when the Cold War meant Danish civil defence was more military in its activity, nowadays it's more closely used as a term for generic community protection groups. This version - designed in 1971 - superseded by the M84 version - does not have the distinctive shoulder flashes of its later counterpart, and so offers a subtler alternative.

Features of this jacket include:

  • In un-issued super grade condition.
  • Heavy duty 100% cotton material.
  • Danish civil defence dark grey fabric colour.
  • Shoulder epaulettes.
  • Four large and practical pockets.
  • Zip fastened front.
  • Inner cotton lining for comfort and warmth.
  • Button adjusted cuffs - two positions
  • Drawstring waist and hem to keep in the warmth in and a more fitted look if desired.

Note on chest sizes

The sizes we quote for chest fitting assumes the wearer will be wearing a light jumper at most underneath. So, any additional under-layers, would require a larger size if we have one available.

A real Danish government surplus item and excellent value for money, a very heavy duty and hard wearing combat jacket, as you would expect from genuine issue surplus.
