history Field jacket, M-1965

The M-1965 field jacket was designed by the US military as part of a cold-weather system that included trousers, liners and hoods that could be combined for adjusting to different weather conditions. Made from a nylon-and-cotton blend that was newly developed for the military, the M-1965 was both water- and wind-resistant, extremely hardwearing and breathable. It was first introduced in olive green.

history Field jacket, M-1965

The M-1965 field jacket was originally developed by the US military as part of a cold-weather system that included trousers, liners and hoods that could be combined for adjusting to different weather conditions.

It was based on the design of earlier field coats, with four reinforced cargo pockets, a covered zip, drawstring waist and a separate liner made with quilted polyester that could be buttoned in for extra warmth. But the jacket also featured important changes when it was introduced in 1965. Hook-and-loop fasteners were added around the cuffs to allow adjusting the fit, and an attached hood that could be rolled out when needed was hidden in a compartment in the back of the collar.

Made from NYCO fabric, a nylon-and-cotton blend that was newly developed for the military, the M-1965 was both water- and wind-resistant, extremely hardwearing and breathable. It was first introduced in olive green.
