The jacket is made of a double layer of canvas, with an internal game pocket The collar and cuffs are corduroy, and the shoulders have additional reinforcement. The collar has an internal wool lined hood, with a hookless style Talon zipper on the collar and an early sunburst variant of the bell-shaped Talon on the split hood. The hip cargo pockets have shotgun shell loops above with their own dedicated pocket flaps. The breast pocket combines a watch pocket and a cigarette pocket, again under the same flap.
