The M-65 field coat was first issued to the U.S. Armed Services in 1965 as a replacement for the M-51 field coat. The M-65 represented the culmination of field coat design, drawing on the technological developments of the M-43 and M-51 field coats used in WWII and Korea. The M-65 also used the covered zipper and snap front closure from the M-51 that allowed soldiers to crawl on their stomachs without the jacket opening and snagging on obstacles.


This iconic jacket is a vintage US Air Force M-65 jacket with a heavy duty Scovill brass front zipper, reflector strips, and Staff Sergeant arm badges. The internal label dates this to 1978. Made in the USA by Alpha Industries. 


Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration/ marks throughout. There are some blue paint marks to the front left (as worn) hem area. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.


All our vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
