Wwii M43 Paratrooper Jump Pants 82nd Airborne For Sale

Wwii M43 Paratrooper Jump Pants 82nd Airborne

Up for sale is an original pair of US WWII airborne modified M43 trousers. These trousers were modified riggers during the war to take the place of the M42 uniform pants. These began to be used during the Holland campaign and were standard issue through the Battle of the Bulge and on to the end of the war.

Although the M42 uniform is the more widely recognized airborne uniform of the war it was actually this pattern trouser with the M43 field jacket that saw use during the heavy fighting of late '44-'45. This pair has been modified by adding the large cargo pockets to the sides of the pant legs and button down pocket flaps over the watch pocket in the front and both rear hip pockets. This was done to keep items stored in those pockets from coming out during jumps. It also has twill tape sewn to inside of thighs to help secure pants when thigh pockets were full.

This pair has seen moderate use and hastwo tears,right front cuff and left shin. Thigh pockets are the correct canvas that has a "waxed" sheen to it and not the standard shelter half material that is seen in many reproductions.

Size is 30 x 32 but M43 pants were cut large to wear over standard wool trouser so will fit slightly larger. Airborne pants are scarcer than the jackets and original M43 are rarely encountered. These jump pants were worn by paratrooper Jack O. Sorber. of the 82nd Airborne 505th Infantry. Please see his jacket and hood in our other sale.

We will combine shipping on these items.
