The M-65 Field Coat, aka the most versatile jacket in existence.

Pic related is what one of mine looks like, black Alpha M65 with the epaulettes removed to make it not dwarf my neck and to make it even more versatile.

Which one do you own?
Why don't you own one if you don't?
Why haven't you copped the best layering piece known to man?
Why didn't your Vietnam vet uncle give you his?

I'll post my actual jacket when I get the chance to take a pic.

Yes, probably the easiest thing to find in surplus stores and anyone worth their salt will know what you want when you ask for it.

Alpha Industries, Rothco
I personally don't like Rothco, so I'd go with Alpha. Size one down from your normal size and you should still have a relatively loose fit, along with not using the drawstrings in the jacket.

Yeah, I admit it. In the end it's just a field jacket, and you can get one that does the same thing for a quarter the price from Helikon or the like. But there's still something appealing about having the concept realized to such a high standard.

Do you have the Rickson's?

I guess the WG line is discontinued for now so look on e.g. Rakuten. The ameblo.jp shop above might still have them, theirs is coincidentally the short size as well. Or you can get the olive M-65 from Rickson's (it's patterned directly after the original while the black WG one has a slightly more effay cut).

I agree with anon that it may not be worth spending the money on such a basic item though. The price kind of negates the beater functionality of a field jacket.

How's the quality on your M65?

>> No.10590470

I still see the link between those and the m65 but I see what you're saying, this isn't exactly the first thing you think of looking for a m65

>> No.10590489

It definitely could be, but I mentioned earlier in this thread I can't vouch for sizing on anything but the standard. Do a little research, ask questions, even call alpha and they might help. They helped me with bomber sizing.

Quality is fantastic. The only thing I thought would give me problems is the buttons for the liner but they've even held up. I've had mine for two years, it's basically in the same like new condition except broken in and more comfy. I've scraped it on rock while climbing, worn it in winter storms with a north face under it, slept in it in a tent, used it as a cover for rain for me and a friend, worn it many times in a manufacturing environment with oil everywhere, and it's just been beat up in general and it's still going strong.

I washed it once when I first got it, treated it with scotchguard, mostly around the pockets. I removed the hood so it feels better on my upper back. Alternatively, if you use the hood, be sure to fold it back in properly otherwise it'll feel like a small object just sitting on your traps. It's annoying as fuck.

Basically alpha made them for the military and has mostly kept that quality imo.

>> No.10590492

I see how the M65 was definitely inspiration. They look good and could be pulled off in some ways in the general public though imo. Layering them on top of more formal wear could be cool

Sure. Give me an hour or so, I'm at work.

I'm a manlet at 5'7" 150 and the S is definitely too big if I was wearing just a tshirt underneath. I usually wear at least a white t, henley type shirt and a zip up or normal sweatshirt/sweater under that one and it fits better.

I've owned one since I was a kid, grew into it during High School, and occasionally scotch guard it to give it a better water shell.

I've read the Rothco is a bit lighter and the pockets aren't as deep as the original. Just something to consider if you plan on using them, which is obv part of the appeal. You could probably find a surplus one fitted just right for the same price, especially if you live in the US.

You could also consider the Helikon, which is very rugged and true to spec but has a weird bright colour in the olive version. Their black m65 is fab though.

the jacket is trash. let me explain why. first, too many pockets plus the epaulaet things makes it look too busy. second, the fabric sucks. literally if you are going into the outdoors with this, youre a moron. it cant handle rain, and wind will vut right through it. it doesnt appear to have a hood to protect your face or ears from cold and wind. if it gets wet youre fucked, as cotton canvas takes forever to dry. its not really going to keep you warm in any sense either. so it begs the question, what is the point of this jacket even existing? there is none. a simple hoodie , or anything for that matter, would give you more functionality than this. no one needs 4 huge pockets. no one. and the epaulets literally serve no purpose. just give me one good reason to wear this jacket. just one. the only reason anyone would consider wearing it is to look like some military poser fag who reads guns and ammo magazine and wants ppl to think he has some special combat training. stop kidding yourself, you know nothing about guns or combat. you're a loser and you always will be.

One part at least is true. The M65 doesn't work against prolonged rain although it does come waterproof-treated and keeps out a decent amount. But since you have pockets, you can just fold a rain poncho into one of them. Or, like, use an umbrella. The jacket is short and could never protect your legs from heavy rain to begin with.

The rest is bs, obvs. The liner is fucking warm, the jacket indestructible, the silhouette a matter of taste but a fashion classic.

Fjällrevens looks good. I'm hoping I can pull it off like pic. related, and not end up looking like som high school shooter.

There is no real surplus models where I live, only cheap rip off army style "rambo jackets", but is the Fjällreven a bit overpriced?

>is the Fjällreven a bit overpriced?
No, Fjällräven quality is really good for the price. The fits are also bit on the slim side, made for nordic people after all.

>> No.10601227

can confirm that Fjallraven quality is great, my greenland jacket has kept we warm for 2 Canadian winters now

Ten C field jacket. I've read some negative things about them, esp given the price (~a grand) but at least it's pretty.

Nah, that guy's got an M43, which are also mighty great.

M65s are better, tho.

>> No.10609294

Oh, and by the way, has anybody here ever tried dying an old olive M65 jet black? I've got a couple original issue Vietnam ones, and they fit absolutely perfect. I wanna black one, but I'll never find one that quality and that fits me so perfectly. I know I might have to sew on new black buttons, and I know the velcro part won't dye.... But still, I think it would look cool. Anybody happen top know if it's an unworkable idea?

It should be possible if it's a NyCo blend and the waterproofing has come off. I'm not sure I'd try on a Vietnam era one, but it might be cool as fuck so your call.

>> No.10610337

I'd seek out someone that could work with it that already knows what they're doing. You'd be surprised how nice people are if you're 100% upfront about what you want. Call up a factory that dyes garments, even if they won't do it for you you could probably get some information about how it'll turn out, how easy it'll be, what kind of dye, etc..

I think it's a cool idea and you should try it.
