M-51 is the updated version of pullover parka, the M-48, from WW2 era and it was mainly issued to U.S.Army officers for the cold weather condition on the Korean War. This battlefield was considered as one of the coldest region U.S.Army has ever fought, and thus the layer system was adapted to be able to wear over ordinary equipment of clothing. The first generation (1951) was given a thick cotton satin shell, but 1952 or later model was replaced by oxford cotton nylon to cut down both cost and weight. Also,this jacket features a rubber strap-adjusting belt for solid sealing performance on the cuffs and wool pockets to ensure heat-retenition.
