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 more!

History of M-65 Jacket

The M-1965 jacket was introduced into US military service in 1965 to replace the M-1951 field jacket which was an improvement on the M-1943 field jacket design. The M-65 field jacket was widely used by United States Forces during the Vietnam War in which the jacket became useful for troops serving in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam, especially in cool weather conditions following monsoonal rains. It was a standard issue to US troops in several other wars all around the globe as well. Originally introduced in OG-107, it is now produced in a large variety of colors and patterns, including military camouflages.

The real deal in OD Green.

The field jacket I received was in great condition considering it is around 40 years old. I did have to pretreat with stain remover and soak with laundry detergent for several hours. After changing the water 4 times and washing twice, the jacket came out looking great. Just be prepared that the jacket might be filthy.

Velcro is like new! I think this jacket may have been washed once! Normally wear 44 , got medium long for slimmer fit, it's just right. Best price I could find on web, very happy with purchase! Job well done McGuire's!! Prompt shipping!
