It is made of red and black plaid wool mackinaw fabric with flapped cargo pockets, handwarmer pockets, a zipped rear entry to the internal game pocket, and leather reinforcement at the corners of these pockets. The zippers are early Talon, with bell-shaped pullers. The deco lines on the pull of the zipper put the date of manufacture around 1937. The jacket is fully lined, and has a trimmed throat latch.
