History: Jungle Cloth has been developed in the 17th century and was used for all kinds of textiles. Due to the hard wearing characteristics it was mostly used for outerwear like coats or jackets. The US Navy started to use Jungle Cloth in the 1940s for their Deck Jackets. Not only was the fabric hard wearing but it also possesses wind and water repellent characteristics. Especially with the N1 Deck Jacket it became the most used fabric on US Navy foul weather wear. The jungle cloth in combination with the woven wool lining made the N1 Deck Jacket perfect for the harshest conditions on ship decks around the world.
