U.S. Tanker in Bib Overalls, 1941-45

Soldiers assigned to tank and reconnaissance units and armored infantry units in half-tracks needed cold weather gear when fighting from their armored vehicles since they did not have efficient space heating. All of the items were made of cotton twill in the OD#3 (a shade of olive drab), with the wool knit cuffs of the jacket in a similar color. Dark olive, Melton wool lined the garments for warmth. Nickel plated talon zippers closed the jacket front, the bib trouser fly, and side access pocket. Eventually, other ground fighting infantry, artillery, and ancillary units were also issued the winter combat uniform while fighting in frigid cold. The jacket itself became very popular in many of the services due to its thermal protection and ease of wearing.
