THE FIELD JACKET THAT HAS STOOD THE TEST OF TIME
Alpha Industries is the original manufacturer of the iconic M-65 Field Jacket, receiving the first contract for the garment from the United States Department of Defense in 1965. Originally used by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, the M-65 was part of a layering system ideal for climates with hot days and cool nights. The M-65 Field Coat was popular for its versatility and durability as it stood up to the harshest of conditions and climates. Soon, the M-65 found itself popular with civilians as well, becoming the jacket of choice for members of the counterculture movement of the 1970s. Today, the M-65 Field Jacket remains one of the most iconic jackets of all time, immortalized in film and popular culture. Alpha Industries continues to product this classic jacket to its original military specifications.
DESIGNED FOR VERSATILITY
The M-65 field coat liner was developed in the late 1960s as a separately-issued piece that could be layered under the M-65 Field Coat for added warmth, or worn on its own in warmer weather. Like the M-65 Field Jacket, liners have become Alpha Industries' modern version of the M-65 liner, the ALS/92 Field Jacket Liner, features a ripstop nylon shell lining with polyester fill, and knit cuffs for added insulation.
