History of the M-65
The M-65 field coat was first issued to the U.S. Armed Services in 1965 as a replacement for the M-51 field coat. The M-65 represented the culmination of field coat design, drawing on the technological developments of the M-43 and M-51 field coats used in WWII and Korea. The M-65 incorporated the bi-swing back and oversize design originally developed for the M-41 to provide more room for soldiers to carry everything from personal items to extra ammunition.

This is not a reproduction or fashionable M65, but much better one.
Mine was an old stock made by a government contractor.
Although this is not the real army surplus, the construction and the material are great.
I purchased SR and I am 5'10. I can wear a champion heavy sweat parka underneath. Hope this helps.
Nice fit and quality, the color is so cool, command to buy!
Definitely a used, surplus jacket. Needs some stitching replaced, zippers and snaps needed to be cleaned and oiled - showing signs of oxidization due to some sort of moisture or exposure. Honestly, disappointing.
My partner is former military, and loves this coat as an addition to his original. Ordered in Black, and a size larger than necessary, because he like many soldiers, love hoodies under his jacket for added warmth. Little bit lighter than " Army Issue" jacket, but well contructed and pockets in all right places.
Shipping was super fast considering I placed order the day( Sunday night) most of US got blasted with snow, and boonie hat plus this M65 arrived Thursday afternoon.
