A special series of embroidered anniversary patches were developed for the coat and the back features a screen print. Our 50th Anniversary Liner can easily be buttoned in for extra warmth.
    • The anniversary coat has a bi-swing back, epaulets, and a concealed hood.
    • Four flap pockets provide plenty of storage.
    • 100% vintage cotton slub shell with 65% polyester/35% cotton lining
    • This men’s field coat has a slim fit.

    Product History

    The M-65 field jacket was first introduced in the late 1960s as an upgrade to the M-51 and M-43 field jackets that had been used in the Korean and Second World War by the Army. The improvements included the built-in hood that rolled and hid in the collar, two shoulder epaulets, extra pockets for carrying equipment, cargo, and accessories, and the brass zipper which replaced the button up style beforehand – allowing soldiers to quickly and effortlessly close and open their jackets for easy access. The M-65 field jacket also had Velcro on both cuffs in case the soldier wanted to roll up his sleeves. The detachable liner allowed soldiers to adjust the jacket based on the fluctuating temperatures. The field coat was used a lot in the Vietnam War and there the days were warm but the nights were much colder. Alpha was one of the first to produce the M-65 in 1966 and we went on to produce them for the government through 1990. Alpha made the first M-65 for the commercial market in the 1970s and by the 1990s they were available in a variety of colors. Today we still make the M-65 as well as modern variations of the vintage field coat from the war days.
