The US military devised a tactic to send large numbers of soldiers directly to the front line using helicopters in the Vietnam War. In the jungle of Vietnam, helicopters that can move through wetlands to destinations more quickly than trucks and armored vehicles have been used in various situations such as transporting troops and injured people and attacking from the air. During that time, the so-called heli-crew jacket for helicopter crews was adopted. When the Vietnam War broke out, various military goods and supplies were sent from the US home country to Vietnam. There is usually a strict mil spec for military equipment, but there was a tendency to leave it to the site during the war. Since it was possible to tailor-made jackets at low cost locally, it became fashionable for soldiers to make special orders with locally procured materials and materials received from their home countries. The material used for this jacket is cotton poplin, which was successful in the jungle fatigue jacket because of its light weight and quick drying characteristics in consideration of the tropical climate.
