Ever heard about a Blood Chit?

During World War II, the military personnel carried survival kits with them, which might include gold coins, maps and most important: a Blood Chit.

The pilots of the US flight crews had their Blood Chit directly sewed in their flight jackets and flight suits.

Never heard of that?

In case, a pilot was shot down, any civilians could find the American flag and a message in several languages, called Blood Chit to identify the force to which he belongs and that the U.S. will reward anyone assisting the pilot getting home safely.

Even though you’re probably not a pilot of the US-Army, we printed the Blood Chit on the back of our new products to make sure you will always get home safely after a long night out.

The Blood Chit is now printed on the back of our following products:

This reversible style comes in sage-green and black, both with our iconic orange lining and in air blue with a fresh silver lining, all containing the Blood Chit on the back.
