The M65 Field Jacket (also known as M-1965) is a popular field jacket designed for the US military. Introduced in 1965, it replaced previous models of field coats such as the M-1951 field jacket and the M-1943 field jacket. The M-65 field jacket was widely used by United States troops during the Vietnam War. Its robust design and tough wearing turned out to be crucial for troops serving in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam, and in the cool weather conditions that came after monsoonal rains.
Presented US Army style M65 field jacket features quality and strong surface material (65% polyester, 35% cotton) and warm, removable long-sleeved liner, which is suitable for the autumn, winter and spring. The jacket fastens with a zipper and snaps and features four pockets, waist and bottom drawstrings and a concealed hood in the collar.
All the actual measurements given on the site as "armpit to armpit x 2" refer to the measurements of the garment and not the size it will fit. The best way of checking if an item will fit is to measure a similar garment you have which fits well and compare the measurements.
When we give the "Armpit to armpit x 2" on an item it is measured directly at the top of the side seams (armpit to armpit) laid flat, then the measurement is doubled, giving the circumference.
If we state that an item is labelled "to fit xx" / XXcm" please check this against your own measurements.

How to return your order:
Bought one of these recently and am very impressed. For the price is a nice quality, solid-feeling jacket - warm and easy to wear. I normally buy L or M depending on cut and went for an M which fits me perfectly. Very quick delivery as well - it arrived next working day which was quicker than I expected. Just one note; the zip doesn't go all the way to the bottom of the jacket. For me this is a bonus as it means I can ride a bike with it on more easily, but the pictures don't show this and it may be a surprise.
Excellent service - very quick delivery. Packaged well. I'm very impressed with the jacket, excellent quality for the price. I've been looking for one of these for a while. Very happy customer, I shall definitely be using Military 1st again. (Now saved in my bookmarks!)
