This limited batch of 300 is a careful and studied balance of both the most elegant and classic M-65 elements chosen from 50 years of evolution, combined with modern re-imaginations and signature TAD details.

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. Featuring a modern but relaxed fit, bi-swing back, and articulated sleeves for freedom of movement, classic details such as a locking waist cinch, adjustable cuffs, stowable hood, and button-down collar help you adapt to your changing environment.

A modernized take on the original, the liner jacket was re-imagined as a fully functional stand-alone piece. Built with Polartec® Power Fill™ for light and compact warmth, the combination of functionality and flexibility delivers versatility without excess bulk or weight. Strategically reinforced with our legendary Amphibious Cloth, the liner jacket brings the M-65 heritage into the 21st century.

  • Modular Insulation

    Featuring the distinctive hourglass quilting pattern of the issued liner and insulated with Polartec® Power Fill™, the removable M-65 liner can be zipped into the M-65 for added warmth, or worn as a standalone jacket.

    Reinforced for standalone wear, the liner jacket features Amphibious Cloth material on the shoulders and lower arms.

  • Accessible Storage

    Two covertly bellowed upper chest pockets and two front cargo pockets provide ample and accessible storage. Hidden snap closures keep your contents secure, and flaps tuck away for easy access.

  • Weather Protection

    A lightweight hood, made of our Amphibious Cloth, provides protection from light moisture. When not in use, the hood stows away in the stand-up collar.

  • Comfort and Durability

    Our Nylon / Cotton (NYCO) Ripstop (RS) material, blends the durability of nylon with the breathability of cotton to strike the perfect balance between comfort and durability. Using a special reinforcing technique, ripstop materials stop small tears from spreading into larger holes. This sturdy fabric is able to withstand long term land-based missions and allows you to move swiftly through rough terrain. It also features a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish to resist precipitation.
