COAT, COLD WEATHER, FIELD, M-65 Authentic US Army issue. Size Large Regular. Height: 67" to 71" Chest: 41" to 45". Measurements: Chest: 25 Sleeve: 25 1/2 Shoulder: 21 1/2 Length: 31 1/2 Used extensively in the Vietnam conflict, the roots of the M-65 jacket can be traced back to the WWII M-41 combat jacket, with the M-65 being the accumulation of two decades of knowledge concerning what worked in this jacket--and what didn't. The M-65 is perhaps now THE classic "US Combat Jacket", with Buzz Rickson now producing a replica in olive drab. (That will set you back $580, plus shipping!) This is no replica, but an authentic US military issue M-65--here, in navy (but not Navy) blue. Designed to keep you warm in cold conditions this is cut from heavy-duty cotton treated to shed water. This is secured with a heavy-duty brass YKK zipper which ends 8" from the hem for ease of sitting and wear; this is supplemented by press-studs. The front of the coat features four deep flapped pockets secured by studs. It has a bi-swing back and a drawstring waist for warmth and to provide sleekness in combat. The neck includes a deep pouch that contains an attached hood (included); the hood takes up little room and this could be used as a back-based storage pouch. This has shoulder epaulettes. The sleeves can be turned down to provide additional coverage for your hands; they are fastened to the interior with velcro when not down. It was Made in the USA and retains its original US Army instructions label at the neck. It retains its original front nametag--although this could easily be removed. This coat does not come with its button-in liner. This is in Very Good/Excellent condition, and is a bargain at $49, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA--much cheaper than Buzz Rickson's replica!
