Better Tanker... Warmer Tanker...
Possibly, I've never owned their wool tanker, but my fleece seems on par with my old WW2 Impy tanker, so cheaper is better in this case.

But if you really *need* an M-41... (I did, but I bought a sale ATF "summer" version a couple years ago)

Have four ATF M-41s. One is a Summer weight... Two brand new in bags AND one of the N-1 jackets from 2019 untouched.... variety of label variations and shades. US made and imported... Bought a soiled, used one for 'combat wear' this year. Mannequins rate the ATF M-41s highly!

Yeah, thought wwiiimpressions is the only company who still produces in the USA when it comes to repro jackets

I have ATF Ike Jackets (overseas made) in the bags I bought well over a decade ago... My 82nd M-42s are US made... pre-2000.

Many years ago (late 90s as well, I believe) I tried on a couple ATF tankers at a militaria show. I can't remember if it was cut or price that moved me on. But that was probably when I first started following them. Don't recall manufacturing locations.

Here are two I have here in Brisbane. One of the Early ATF 'quality' jackets.. Assumption is this is made in Freedom and not in China as any foreign items have to list country of manufacture. Japan had a town named USA after the war to increase sales MADE IN USA!

The two side by side..

No other labels. If I have two here I have three at home. 2nd Armored, and two virgin's... One is the lightweight, summer version. Then the new N-1... All 42s from memory.
