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.

Smelled funny and metal pieces (snaps & zipper) were corroded. It fit ok but wasn't built as robust as I remember my old Army issued coat being.
Excellent. Exactly what I wanted.
