First issued to service personnel in 1965, the M-65 was designed as a cold weather jacket to replace the previous revisions from 1943 and 1951. From its first deployments in Vietnam to modern frontiers, the M-65 withstood the test of time, becoming a cultural icon still in use half a century later.
Our take on the durable and versatile shell jacket was an exercise in proportion and restraint. The shell is a unique dry waxed canvas from the historic Halley Stevensons mill in Dundee, Scotland. Established in 1864, Halley Stevensons is renowned for their extraordinary weatherproof fabrics and meticulous quality.
Available for the first time without an included liner, the M-65 shell is compatible with numerous existing TAD insulators in addition to the traditional M-65 liner. We have a limited number of liners available for purchase separately.
