    Due to it being too large and saving money for other jackets, I decided to part with this unique jacket that's next to irreplaceable with a heavy heart. An M1982 jacket, used by the Hungarian Air Force between 1982 and 199x. I bought it from a Major through an acquaintance. It's in mint condition, no sign of wear, no stains, no pets, non smoker. The jacket is rather heavy and warm, has a fur lining that can be removed (see pics). The collar can also be removed. I have no idea what it's made of, but it's super soft and cuddly, reminds me of chinchilla fur or something like that. I hardly used it, put in a couple of hours of flying time added to the who knows how many in MIG-s.

    Measurements:
    Pit to pit: 25.5"
    Shoulder across back: 22"
    Back length from the bottom of the collar: 25"
    Sleeves from shoulder seam: 24"

    Due to it being so rare, I'm asking for 250 GBP + paypal fees + shipping costs. I'm kind of open for negotiations, but I'd rather keep it than sell it at a low price. I just figured it might fit someone else better and see more use.

    The bi-swing back makes it really easy to move in.

    The wings weren't sewn on for whatever reason, they came inside the pocket. Since most pilots did sew them on, so did I, to make it more authentic. (post 1989 wings)

    That is SUPER cool! Man, I'm glad this jacket isn't any smaller, don't think I'd be able to resist buying it.
