J005679 (IJN) 1ST PATTERN PILOTíS FLOAT VEST.

An olive/brown thin canvas like material sewn into independent tube shaped chambers that are filled with "kapok" which is a silky down from a silk cotton tree. A groin cloth is sewn to the bottom rear that is suspended between the legs with two Herring Bone Twill straps that slip through HBT loops at the front of the vest. This is to prevent the vest from lifting away from the torso or over the personís head. A HBT waist belt is sewn directly onto the back of the vest, leaving the straps free from the side seams which are secured by belt loops of the same material. A 21cm x 11cm drab olive patch is sewn at the center of the back that allows for the ownerís name to be written. There is a small National flag hand sewn to the upper back of the vest. A cloth label is sewn to the inside right with printed kanji that denotes the date, manufacturer, etc. There are some small stains but otherwise excellent condition. Rare.
