Helikon Genuine M65 Field Jacket
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 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. Today it is widely popular jacket model, both in the UK and worldwide.
Presented M65 jacket is made of quality and strong original NyCo material (50% nylon, 50% cotton) which is resistant to abrasion. The jacket fastens with a zipper and snaps, and features four pockets, waist and bottom drawstrings and a concealed hood in the collar. Moreover it goes with warm, removable long-sleeved liner, which is suitable for the autumn, winter and spring.
We recommend that you purchase a size down from your normal size to ensure that you get a good fitted look.
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.
