The "Long-Sleeves" Straitjacket
I purchased this unusual straitjacket through
e-bay during the summer of 2000
for about $150. The previous owner apparently
picked it up at a surplus auction by the PA state police.
I am using the name "Long-Sleeves" because I first saw a picture of it on
SJ Floats. That was
the name used for it their because of the jacket's very long sleeves.

A front and back picture of the long-sleeves jacket.
Note that the front
closure on this jacket makes it much easier to escape from. You can see
the buckles as you try to loosen them.
Three pictures showing the back of the jacket. Notice how the ends of the
sleeves make it quite close to the loop at the back of the jacket.

These three shots show the buckle for the arm/sleeve strap. This
straitjacket is not very secure buckled this way. It took me about four
minutes to get out.
This shot shows an alternate placement of the sleeve/arm strap/buckle
and an alternate buckling arrangement. This would make escape MUCH more
