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 field 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. Redesigned version of the traditional M-65 Field Jacket, the 5.11 Taclite M-65 Jacket is made from a highly durable 6.14-oz. (208g/m²) 65% Polyester/35% Cotton Taclite Ripstop fabric, and combines lightweight and comfortable construction with contemporary fitted cut and look. This extremely durable concealed carry field jacket features 5.11 RAPIDraw through-and-through pocket system for a quick and easy access, dual Hidden Document Pockets at the chest for secure storage, and a DuPont Teflon Shield+ fabric protector for enhanced stain, soil and fade resistance. Additionally, Taclite M-65 Jacket comes with a slim inner lining, two-way front YKK metal zipper and adjustable cuffs for a better fit, as well as articulated elbows and hook-and-loop patches for easy identification.
