- Additional information
Introduced in 1942, during WW2, the Denison Smock was designed as a camouflage and windproof garment for british airborne units. It was used by both paratroopers and SOE (Special Operations Executive) agents , untill mid-70s with little alteration for the late models.
Designed to be pulled over head, it featured a collar zipper opening up to the chest. High-ranking officers could buy a privately made Denison Smock, or modify a regular one, making it full-zipped, for ease of dressing. These models also used to have drawcord at the waist.
Our Denison Smock is identically tailored as the officer’s model, with the following features:
→ full front zipper and waist drawcord
→ double layer on shoulders (for good rain protection), and on lower back (usefull if sitting on a soaky surface)
→ identical underarm tailoring as the original model for freedom of arm movement
→ 4 front external pockets and 2 internal pockets
→ detachable hood
→ “beaver tail” which can be fastened inside
