Nothing is more iconic in military cold weather gear than the M-65 Field Jacket. The M-65 Field Jacket has been issued to Army soldiers for almost 50 years and is still the most sought after and popular military coat to date. The M65 gets its name from the year it was introduced to the military, 1965.
Features of the M-1965 Field Coat include:
- Hood that can Roll up into the Neck of the Coat
- Velcro® / Hook & Loop Fasteners on Sleeves and Neck
- Metal Zipper with Storm Flap
- Inside Buttons for Quilted Liner (Usually Sold Separately)
- 4 Pocket Front Design and Drawstring Waist
- Shoulder Epaulets with Button
The M65 Field Jacket was widely used during the Vietnam War in the vintage Olive Drab color. Since this time, the iconic field jacket has been issued to thousands of soldiers in both Olive Drab Green and Woodland Camouflage. The M65 has also been made available (and sometimes issued) in Desert Camouflage (DCU & Desert Digital), Multicam™ ACU Univeral and City Camo as well as solid colors Black, Navy and Tan. The original military M65 Field jacket was made almost exclusively by Alpha Industries, a company that still manufactures this item today. Since then, there are quite a few other manufacturers that produce a version of this coat such as Tru-Spec and Rothco.

Take a look at both the M-65 Field Jacket AND the M-52 Field Jacket that MilitaryClothing.com has on sale. The main difference between the two is that the M-52’s quilted liner is sewn-in as opposed the M-65 having a removable liner (not included). Also, the M-52 does NOT have a hood.
