Authentic Men’s Military Field Jacket
U.S. Army Vintage M-65 Field jacket
If you’re going to buy an authentic field jacket, why not go directly to the source. You can buy the U.S. Army Vintage M-65 Field Jacket ($70) right from the Army and it’s dirt cheap. Their jacket is offered in a multitude of colors including Woodland Camo, Black, Olive Drab, and Russett Brown. It features a super soft shell and lining made from 100% washed cotton. It also checks off many of the features found in authentic field jackets. These include a concealed hood in the collar, heavy brass zipper, and snap-up storm flap, four snap-up outside pockets, and drawstrings at the waist, hood, and bottom. One thing to note, for the price it does not include a removable button-in quilted liner which can be purchased at Amazon.
Cockpit M65 Field Jacket
The Cockpit M-65 Field Jacket ($333) is one of our most expensive military spec offerings, but it is a truly authentic field jacket. The Cockpit M-65 was made to the 1965 military specs of the original design down to the original OG107 olive color. Not surprisingly it is completely made in the USA and is virtually indestructibility. It doesn’t come with a liner, but it will accept the Alpha ALS Liner sold on Amazon. It checks off every one of the elements of a great field jacket.
