WW II German Army Air Force M43 Kradmantel – MOTORCYCLE JACKET – TROPICAL – RARE


1 in stock

1 offer is currently pending.


You are bidding on a FANTASTIC and VERY RARE example of a WW2 German Wehrmacht TROPICAL M43 Kradmantel (Motorcycle Coat)!


Motorcyclists and Dispatch riders were outfitted with special protective clothing that included gauntlets and a protective coat.  Both items were actually quite popular with numerous personnel, and were commonly worn by non-motorcyclists, due to their serviceability  Due to the extreme heat in Africa, in 1940, the original rubber-coated jacket was re-designed, using a non-rubberized cotton twill.


Made of a lightweight khaki/olive green cotton twill, this motorcycle jacket is in EXCELLENT used condition!  Some marks and wear, due to the age…and some buttons are missing.  Makers marks are also stamped on the inside…but they are very faint.  Not sure of the exact size, but this would fit anyone with a medium build.  A VERY RARE item for any collection or display!


Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.


——————- ABOUT ME —————–

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
