The M65 jacket was issued to soldiers of the U.S. Army as a hard-wearing field jacket which could also have a liner inserted for warmth. Based on the same design, this jacket features a rugged construction with a button-in liner. Don't look past this for a quality jacket with a timeless military style.
Keeping with the classic M65 design, this jacket has a high collar with a concealed hood which can be zipped away when it's not needed. A heavy duty brass zip and storm flap fastens the front of the jacket. With two chest pockets and two waist pockets, there is no shortage of storage for your small tools and essential items. Constructed from a heavy weight poly/cotton fabric for durability in the outdoors. The removable liner is made from polyester which will dry faster than natural fabrics if it gets wet. This is an excellent pick for hunters or those looking for an outer layer over the autumn, winter and spring.

Very pleased,well made jacket, fitted perfectly. Odered on a Tuesday night and arrived on Friday morning.
Note that the zipper is a heavy duty brass type which is a plus... (Not likely to self-destruct for some time?)
I'm not too sure of the sizing... I am 136cm around the chest, and the fit was about right. (3XL).
The site states that 3XL was for up to 147cm chest measurement, and I was worried that it may be too big for me, but as I mentioned, the fit was about right for me. (Not tight, not too loose, looked good while wearing it)
Cuffs on the sleeves have a velcro adjuster, from 'loose' to as 'snug' as you want.
There is a 'draw-string' at the bottom of the jacket, and snap domes over the zip, and also to secure the pockets.
Delivered by courier from Chch to Dunedin about 24hrs after ordering. Also, helpful advice from the shop, over the phone. Peter, Dunedin NZ.
