The M-65 Field Jacket - an recognizable and iconic staple of the military, collectors, and for streetwear. Its role in the Vietnam War and its popularity after, has made its mark in history.
The M-65 or M-1965 Field Jacket was an upgraded replacement for the M-1951 Field Jacket. This new design led to the M-65 being the most widely used military jacket design ever. The design can found to this day in military surplus and commercial reproductions.
The M-65 Field Jacket features:
Four large cargo pockets
Adjustable draw string waist
Adjustable velcro wrist closures
Metal snap pocket closures
Heavy Zipper w/ snap fly front closure
Attatched hood hidden behind zipper in collar
Throat storm flap
Originally the M-65 Jacket was produced in OG-107 - a shade of green developed for Vietnam - but as it was adopted for later use it was made in other colors like Woodland Camo and 3 Color Desert.
In 2009, the M-65 Field Jacket was finally retired with the Extended Cold Weather Clothing System (ECWCS) taking its place.
