Genuine issue. Heavy duty combat jacket. Showerproof. Zip and press stud fastening, four outer pockets, concealed hood in collar, storm cuffs that fold up when not required. Velcro cuff adjustment, inside pocket. Liner available separately. PLEASE NOTE: these M65 jackets are oversized and are designed to be worn over clothing and with a liner. They are coming up at least a size bigger than normal jackets and if you want a slim fit then go two sizes down.

I like the jacket, but it's not built like a fashion jacket. There are many many loose threads and some of the stitching looks childish, but I'm not too fussed. You might be, so you have been warned. If you are wondering where the extra money goes in the Alpha Industries M65, then you might like to know that all the metal poppers and some of the zip hardware is branded, and some of the trim inside is also branded. The built in hood is useless, but I intend to never use it. I'll wear a hat. And the jacket is not even slightly waterproof.
The top pockets will just about fit a bit of paper in them. If you put coins in there, it's not coming out unless you tip the jacket upside down. The pocket openings are too small for me to get my hand in.
I was a bit concerned I would look like Foggy from Last of the Summer Wine, but so far no one has said anything. Possibly becasue they think I I might go Travis Bickle on them.

I am glad I had my own liner as they are expensive to buy unless you get one from Ebay or Amazon USA. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006RKV40C/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I
If you want an authentic tough jacket that will last forever then look no further. It is expensive compared to the cheapies, but in this case you get what you pay for. Hope this helps.
Went to buy a small size a year later as I had lost some weight and the material is noticeably inferior, much thinner and lighter and the build quality was visibly poor. It also didn't fit well. Apparently they are now made somewhere else, China etc.
Definitely no longer worth the money. Avoid.
Such a pity as my older version is wonderful. Penny pinching by the company probably :-(
Its taken almost 35 years but I've bought my new M65. It feels like my old jacket and smells almost the same (amazing how the sense of smell opens up memory).
The fit is generous, even for my size, xxl. I did contact Silvermans prior to purchasing to ask about sizing and they advised on which one to buy.
I highly recommend this product. Even if it is to re-kindle a lost youth.
