The M-65 evolved from the M-1943 Field Coat via the M-1951, and was in service from 1965 until 2009. The color is officially “Olive Green 107”. From the M-1951, the significant changes were a storable hood, snap closures on the four main pockets, and velcro cuffs. The collar transitioned from a shirt-style collar to an upright collar. The Epaulets present on the M-65 Field Jacket were not present on the 1st-Type M-65, but subsequent models (as this) include them.

This is sooooo coool military jacket. If you had duty of country-defense, you should wear it. From south korea
la veste est parfaite au point de vue coupe, qualité des matériaux utilisés ; c'est au niveau des productions Japonaises !
I'm very pleased with the jacket. It's a bit smaller and fits me better than genuine US military issue field jacket in the same size. For reference, I'm 5'7" and weigh 115 lbs and chose size XS/34. It's not too big, but is roomy enough for a liner and a sweatshirt underneath. The material is hefty and the construction is pretty solid. I love the color - pretty nice olive green. Stitches are a bit lighter green, though, but maybe it's because polyester thread won't fade and after a while will better match a faded and washed multiple times cotton fabric.
Delivery to Europe took three weeks and tracking worked fine.
Thank you Bronson!
