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.

Very quick delivery and absolutely excellent coat. I'm thinking about more purchases from here.
Great quality coat/jacket which is roomy and warm without a liner. I am usually XL, however for this item Large was perfect without under layers, but still allows enough room for a thin fleece. If I gave the design one negative it would be the cuffs, more velcro or strap to reduce diameter. This is am minor point and should not distract from this quality made to last jacket.
Brilliant jacket. Will last for years. I'm normally a M, ordered a S. Perfect over a hoodie in the coming months. Good service too.
Its a good quality jacket, It similar to others I've had but a better overall quality. The price is maybe a little high considering the additional cost of the inner jacket, The size guide is very accurate. If you want it baggy/ to wear something underneath get your normal size but if not get the size lower, which i what i wish I'd done.
Really well made jacket - definitely considerably oversized and I had to swap it for a size down. Great service from Military Kit and wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Great prices too.
I bought an Alpha Industries M65 and the service was fantastic. The quality of the product is well known but the price was significantly cheaper than elsewhere. The delivery was very quick and I would have no hesitation in recommending Military Kit to anyone.
Love the classic boxy cut of this m-65. Feels nice and sturdy and well put together.
Sizing: This jacket is meant to be roomy and i knew what i was expecting in terms of cut. I'm usually right in the middle between a large and an XL in most brands. Usually a large fits too snug across the shoulders, which is okay for tees but no good for jackets. I went with the Large size in this and reckon I made the right choice. The medium would have fit better across the chest, but likely would have been just too tight on the shoulders.
I have bought one of these before, so knew what to expect. No complaints. I'm 5'10.5" and 10 stone - medium a good fit. Go small if you want a more 'fashion' fit, but I'm happy with this as I can put more layers on when cold. Prompt service, would buy again. Recommended
Jacket met my expectations.Usually i am wearing 2 XL but i was reading reviews of another buyers that model is bigger so i’ve decided to go with one size less and it perfect match!!Thanks!
I'm a fairly standard M, but this is designed for layering and a liner thus is oversized.
I went for the S, perfect fit.
Thick flannel shirt and a tee, spot on but will accommodate a heavy jumper/sweatshirt.
Great service too.
