American M43 Trousers

Quality reproduction M43 trousers.

The U.S. Army's M1943 uniform was a combat uniform manufactured in windproof cotton sateen cloth introduced in 1943 to replace a variety of other specialist uniforms and some inadequate garments, like the M1941 Field Jacket. It was used through the remainder of World War II and into the Korean War.

The uniform was tested in Italy in 1943 by the 3rd Infantry Division but some GIs claim that non-combatant officers and enlisted personnel would use their position in the rear to get the new uniform, delaying the ultimate field testing in Italy for some time longer. This, along with shipping delays after D-Day kept this uniform from widespread use in Europe until late 1944. After D-Day, Paratroopers were issued complete M1943 uniforms, and infantry units began getting the uniform parts here and there.

Paratroopers were generally the only ones to modify the uniform, as they would sometimes add their own trouser cargo pockets. They kept their older "Corcoran" paratrooper boots instead of the new M43 buckle boots because they were less likely to snag on their parachute when it deployed.

  • Would it be viable to wear these trousers during summer conditions or would they be too hot? Or are they good for all weathers?

    • These are a mid-weight trouser - generally suitable for all-seasons, although possibly a bit heavy for hotter summer weather / a bit light for freezing conditions.
