First issued to U.S. Military in 1965, the M-1965 field jacket remains a rugged, dependable garment. Alpha Industries was among the original manufacturers and has improved on the classic with the M-65 Mod Field Jacket. It has a hidden hood in the collar for protection in bad conditions and arrives in a modern black colorway. It retains many features of the original, however, including a hidden snap front closure, and rugged cotton blend shell. Four front flap pockets and two interior welt pockets provide plenty of secure storage, while drawstrings at the hood, waist, and hem help combat wind intrusion.
