The ACU variation of this jacket has slightly different features including Velcro® on the sleeve and chest and no shoulder epaulettes.

The M65 field jacket shielded soldiers from the elements throughout the Vietnam War and beyond. Due to the introduction of the ECWCS layering system, it was recently phased out. This genuine US military issue has useful added features that sets it apart from other field jackets. There is a hideaway hood which easily zips into the collar, extra pockets for holding your gear, adjustable sleeves with Velcro straps, and stylish shoulder epaulets.

Great product. I owned this as a kid. Jacket arrived as advertised. Only reason I did not give a 5 is because the cords needed keepers on them and the original field jacket had leather keepers. Sizing is very large, so I sized down one from what I normally wear and the fit was great, still large enough for a liner (5’11”, 205). Definitely will use this when I deploy again. I miss the old woodland camo pattern. Overall, very pleased with this jacket
Been looking for this coat for awhile..but found this one an at a good price.. THANKS
It's a cool jacket love the look just didn't realize how big it was... I'm 6'1 200lbs I got a 2x but I think I need a xlarge or large
Overall good jacket
I knew of the M-65 due to having some friends that are in the military. The M-65 really has made my commute to work and school so much easier due to the pockets being able to hold a lot of items. In addition, the M-65 is really great at trapping heat. So when ever I go camping/hiking I always make sure to take my M-65 with me. I can easily say that the M-65 is the best Jacket that I’ve ever own.
