Swedish Motorcycle Jacket

Hi everyone. I got my hands on some of these jackets from the swedish military. Apparently issued in the 1960s and never worn.

I've been searching the pages for a jacket I remember from Europe some time ago, and this is the closest I've found.

I believe they wear Swedish flight jackets, leather with and asymmetric cut front, and toggle closures. An interesting characteristic was that one sleeve had an oversized pocket on the forearm for pens, maps, etc. This made the jacket impractical outside of the cockpit, so people would have them tailored; removing the pocket fr everyday wear.

Anyone know what those were?
