3x3 TwoCutters "Two versions of Cutter? Sounds like some kind of nightmare."
This article is about Nick Cutter's military jacket, not any other jackets worn by him.

Nick Cutter's jacket was a green backpocket military jacket owned and worn by Professor Nick Cutter.


The backpocket military jacket was used by the Swedish Armed Forces from 1941 to 1960. They featured two pockets in the back, which allowed soldiers marching behind an individual to store things they would need in that person's coat. Backpocket jackets were made of wool, and though good insulators, can be worn in virtually any weather. They are often seen in grey or OD green.


Original timeline

Episode 1.1

Nick Cutter wore his jacket to the Central Metropolitan University on the day he met Connor Temple and later took it off in his office. He then wore it for the next two days as he, Connor and Stephen Hart searched the Forest of Dean for creatures, visited the Home Office and travelled back in time to the Permian Period before returning to the present day.

Post-original timeline

Episode 2.2

Nick still had his jacket in the new timeline. He wore it to the Anomaly Research Centre when he was discussing ways to track Anomalies with James Lester and Oliver Leek. He later wore it to an Anomaly incursion at inner city office block where it was too hot so he discarded the jacket in the stair wells on Floor 12. He retrieved it sometime later.

  • The jacket used in Series 1 and Series 2 of Primeval was offered as part of the first prize for the online game Primeval Evolved, which was most likely why it was absent in Series 3.
  • The ribbons on the jacket's collar are identified as infantry marksman ribbons, which means the original owner of the jacket was most likely a sniper in the Swedish military, probably WWII era. However all of the original badges have been removed and the buttons replaced.
  • The Series 1 Character Options action figure of Nick Cutter was wearing his jacket.
