GI US Army M-65 Field Jacket, Used
This genuine US military issue has useful added features that set it apart from other field jackets. There is a hideaway hood that easily zips into the collar, extra pockets for holding your gear, adjustable sleeves with Velcro straps, and stylish shoulder epaulets. 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.
These jackets are used and may contain various other patches and insignia including or other than the "US ARMY" tab, such as rank and unit tabs. These are used in very good condition with no rips, tears, or holes.

The M-65 Field Jacket was introduced into U.S. military service in 1965 to replace the M-1951 field jacket. It was widely used by the United States troops during the Vietnam War in which the jacket became useful for troops serving in the central highlands of South Vietnam. The front of the jacket has two large hip pockets and two chest pockets. The collar of the jacket features a stowaway hood so you can be prepared if the weather takes a turn for the worst. The jacket can be combined with a button insulated lining for cold weather wear.

Love this jacket! It arrived quickly and exactly as described. Used condition but no rips, tears, holes, everything fully functional. Perfect jacket for those cold nights in the mountains.
The jacket was good used condition, no rips or tears. This was an older style with Velcro cuffs and the Velcro no longer holds very well and metal zipper missing tang. overall 4 stars
I've had one these since I was 18, I'm 50 now. I've worn it every hunting season and camping trip since then and it's still in perfect shape. I bought this for my son as he never takes mine off. Mine was a gift from a friend who was 1st deployed in Desert Storm right out of high school. I have no doubt this will last my son just as long. May buy another for myself. AWESOME quality.
