    Product History

    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 incorporated the bi-swing back and oversize design originally developed for the M-41 to provide more room for soldiers to carry everything from personal items to extra ammunition. 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. The M-65 also kept the interior buttons and removable liner from the M-51 for greater warmth and versatility across different climates. The M-65 included new features, including a roll-up hood and a Velcro cuff designed to extend out and attach or cover gloves. The M-65 also introduced a brand new fabric for the outer shell: NYCO®, a nylon and cotton sateen combination that was extremely durable and water repellent. Alpha Industries made more M-65’s than any other U.S. contractor and produced over 500,000 units a year at the height of production. Today, Alpha continues to produce the M-65 to the original military specification, delivering a classic, quality, and authentic field coat to our customers.
