This is the only piece of manufactured camo that the Imperial Japanese Army had produced. One pocket on the outside and one on the inside, with coconut buttons. This has a bump out on the back for a back pack. The inside was covered in a green color rubber, which on this example, has started to deteriorate and fall off. The manufacturing lable is printed inside the pocket.The IJA had a few squads that utilized camo clothing, however they were done by the troops, with paints and such. This is not a common item.
Enjoy

    Hello, I did not know that these existed, and I have been collecting militaria since the seventies. Nice rare piece.
