Bulletproof ......very nice!
Definitely very useful with all the pockets and breathable for #islandlife.... I don’t know how much are the Bronson but on ebay you can find genuine Vietnam Era in good or new condition, for a good price if you are lucky and patient.
Great jacket, I have the opposite of yours - I can wear junglejacket 3% of the time only Many years I bought 2 originals - the 2d pattern poplin with epaulettes with a long sleeve and 3 pattern poplin version with a short sleeve for the USAF. There was a period when I worked in North Africa and there they were my favs jackets, used a lot, especially when I traveled. Great jackets for the hot weather and a very thoughtful design, perhaps the best. Now I take sometime one of my jungle jackets on vacation.
