Product Description

WE RECOMMEND PURCHASING A SIZE DOWN FROM YOUR NORMAL SIZE TO ENSURE THAT YOU GET A GOOD FITTED LOOK.

The M65 Field Jacket (also known as M-1965) is a popular field jacket designed for the US military. Introduced in 1965, it replaced previous models of field coats such as the M-1951 field jacket and the M-1943 field jacket. The M-65 field jacket was widely used by United States troops during the Vietnam War. Its robust design and tough wearing turned out to be crucial for troops serving in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam, and in the cool weather conditions that came after monsoonal rains. Presented US Army style M65 field jacket features quality and strong shell material (65% polyester, 35% cotton) and warm, removable long-sleeved liner, which is suitable for the autumn, winter and spring. The jacket fastens with a zipper and snaps and features four pockets, waist and bottom drawstrings and a concealed hood in the collar.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Coat, Weird Design Choices 14 Dec 2013
By Hawkguy
Size Name:XXX-Large
I got this coat well over a year ago, just before last winter arrived, and it was great. absolutely what I needed to get me through all the way to spring. The removable double layer is great, ensuring the wearer's warmed thoroughly. The high collar provides great protection for the neck, and the design is great for both ventilation and insulation.

But there are things that bug me about this coat. Why is there velcro on the inside to constantly catch on any long sleeved t-shirts or jumpers I may be wearing? Just what is the purpose of the flaps at the cuffs other than to maybe help protect better against wind sheer? Why is the concealed hood terrible at concealing itself, riding up and pinching the fabric turning me into Quasimodo? Why is the zipper so short? It barely covers my belly button!

I understand these jackets have been around for a while, but all things considered I'd have expected the design to have been refined by now!

That's not to say I don't like it; it is my default jacket to wear now 3/4s of the year. However I did end up making modifications such as covering the velcro inside the sleeve with an appropriate counterpart to stifle the snagging on my sleeves. I've also taken to rolling the concealed hood up in such a way that it doesn't completely fall down the gap between the inside layer and outside layer to ride up uncomfortably, but this does mean the collar will not fold down as evenly.

Overall it's a decent jacket, great for all weathers, but the strange design choices for me let it down.
