The Workhorse Army Jacket - Virtually Indestructible
With an iconic military background and tough construction to match, the Alpha Industries M-65 field jacket is an enduring classic that looks great and works hard.
Originally issued to soldiers during Vietnam, this jacket is practically designed for outdoor activities like shooting and fishing and makes claims of being virtually indestructible.
Functional features include a drawcord at the waist to help keep chilly draughts out and handy large outer chest pockets for stashing essentials close to hand. There are also buttons on the inner for attaching a liner if needed, while the 50% cotton, 50% nylon fabric outer shell is both wind and tear-resistant.
Protection out in the field
The fabric of the M-65 coat offers water-repelling properties and there’s a useful drawstring hood that can be zipped away in the neck when not required. The front zipper is made from strong brass, which is not only practical but also completes the vintage styling.
And as this coat was originally designed for military manoeuvres, you’ll find the bi-swing back allows unrestricted movement whether you’re taking aim or taking the dog for a walk.
- Colour: Olive Green
- Sizes: Small to XX-Large
The M65 jacket is oversized and is intended to be worn with multiple layers or a liner that can be purchased separately. If you want to wear with multiple layers choose your regular jacket size, otherwise, if you want to wear with a single layer such as a shirt or t-shirt we recommend you choose one size smaller. If you want an even slimmer fit then you may need to go down two sizes.

Great service from the team at Military Kit. The coat itself is an excellent fit. I ordered one size smaller as the Alpha Industries website suggested it was a generous fit. I normally wear size large with most coats or jackets but the Medium on this occasion fits snuggly with room for the liner and base layers. The coat does also have two internal pockets one zipped and one with a velcro fastener. With or without the liner the coat is a great addition to my wardrobe and should wear well. Thank you Military Kit
Excellent service, quick delivery and quality goods. Stick with normal sizing as there is plenty of room in these jackets.
Excellent service, excellent item.
I’ve read lots of reviews on these jackets as I wanted to get correct sizing
I went for my normal size as I work out and never get jackets to fit me correctly
But this fits me perfectly
And the quality is so good
Service from you guys was amazing in the current situation I had in next day
So a week later I ordered it in the khaki again go it next day
Prompt service. Many thanks.
Excellent service and product
This is a great quality jacket made in original cotton/nylon mix and is a nice heavyweight jacket, worn nearly every day since I purchased and I would definitely recommend both jacket and seller. Many thanks.
This is the 2nd M65 Jacket that I have purchased from this company.
Quality jacket at a reasonable price.
I would order a size down from your normal size as this jackets are oversized to allow room for layers.
If you wish to purchase the liner or ware alot of layers under the jacket stick to your normal size.
