Genuine US Army issue

Introduced in 1968, the two-piece OG-106 Hot Weather Flyer's Uniform was designed to improve upon the wearability and comfort of the coveralls which were issued prior. Two patterns were produced including the 1st pattern (such as this) and a 2nd pattern which featured a zip closure on either pocket instead of velcro-secured flaps. Primarily used by helicopter pilots and crewmen until the end of the war and beyond.

Includes all original wartime insignia including 100% cotton collar insignia. Rare, early-war subdued on-cotton twill US Army branch tape. Aviator wings. US Army Materiel Command patch with prior wartime service with the 101st Airborne Division (more than likely a Vietnam veteran). Also includes a rare USAECOM (United States Army Electrical Communications) Army Aviation Detachment patch.
