The Austrian M65 Field Jacket is an updated take on the classic M65 Field Jacket. Recognizing the performance of the M65 design, the Austrian Army selected this jacket as their official field jacket. There have been a number of improvements to the original design over the years, but the heart and soul of this field jacket remains the original M65 Field Jacket.
One of the most important features of the M65 Field Jacket are the size, dimensions, and layout of the pockets. This is one area where the Austrian Army did not make any changes as the feedback from troops shows the original placement is ideal. With this you will have four large pockets on the front exterior of the M65 along with an internal pocket for your most important items.
The materials used to produce the Austrian M65 Field Jacket are designed for both durability and comfort. With a 65% polyester and 35% cotton blend you will find the M65 jacket to be extremely comfortable and warm. Like all Austrian Army jackets, these M65 field jackets are an olive drab color which will allow this jacket to be worn with virtually any other clothing and look correct. On the front of the M65 the Austrian Army used a genuine YKK zipper to ensure hassle free performance for the lifetime of your jacket.

These are excellent jackets. I wouldn't even call them second to the originals. These are made of good materiel and have good features like a button collar and drawstrings to shut out the cold. These run slim VS American sizing, so keep that in mind.
