An overall garment for German paratroopers to protect lines being entangled with equipment. After a jump, this smock was usually kept by the soldier to provide extra pockets and as a rain cover. It was many a times worn in every scenario because it gave the paratroopers the symbol of an elite unit.
This model is an improved version over the Crete Smock (2nd pattern). It is considered to be more practical, especially when nature calls.
