Description  more details

This is a vintage Arctic Cat snowmobiling jacket that I believe is a prototype. It is basically the sytle of the 1975 and 1976 women's VIP jackets which were the same for both years.

The difference is that this jacket does not have a belt or the elasticized back, and the pockets are the hidden pockets, behind the green piping that borders the hotdog quilted stretch panels at the sides. The VIP jackets in both the 1975 and 1976 catalogs had the adjustable half belt with the 'Cat Head' buckle and an elasticized back at the belt level. The front pockets were the diagonal slash style pockets. Everything else is the same. The style, the hotdog panels at the sides, the front yoke, and the back, and the piping are all the same. The placement of the embroidered 'Cat Head' logo is also the same. The sizing on this jacket is bigger than the women's medium though.

 

Arctic Wear combines winter fashion with comfort and unsurpassed quality. The VIP jackets had the tough 420 Denier tight weave Nylon outer shell, the same as the EXT suits. The  diamond quilted liner is backed with warm high density Dacron 88® Polyester insulation to keep you toasty warm in sub-zero temps and wind chills. 


This jacket has a full two-way front zipper that zips to the top of the knit collar to form a turtle neck, or you can turn it down. The soft acrylic knit collar can be worn in 3 different ways. The 1.5 inch recessed knit cuffs keep your wrists warm and the snow and cold out. The VIP jackets were matched up with the vest top or bib top snow pants. 

This jacket is in excellent condition and has seen very little wear. The green piping is even nice and vibrant yet. The hotdog quilted panel on the back is a little puffy like there was perhaps too much material.

 

The size tag indicates this jacket is a size Medium Tall. The sizing is closer to a men's medium. This jacket could be worn by a guy also who has a slim build and would normally wear the men's vintage medium with a snug fit.

  Please use the measurements in "more details" for a proper fit.
