The military field jacket has been the standard for outer wear of soldiers for decades. Many movies feature actors wearing field jackets as they have a distinctive military look and appeal. One of the most popular and best values in field jackets is the Czech M85 Field Jacket which we've now got available for sale. Coming from a modern country in Eastern Europe, the M85 Field Jacket is a great mix of both modern and traditional military features.
What makes the M85 Field Jacket stand out is it does not feature any patches or unit insignia. The period of time when it was made was before quick-detach velcro was the standard. You will be pleased that for less than $10 you'll be getting a near-new jacket made to military specifications that wears well with any other clothes. The olive drab color looks great with jeans, khakis, or even shorts. You will be able to wear it virtually anywhere without having anyone immediately assume your wearing army surplus.

This makes a good outer layer and has several well positioned pockets. It is quite well made, and is an excellent value for the money. While it is identifiable as military, it is not overly military looking and is suitable for a general use outdoors jacket. The one I received appeared unissued. The only thing else that needs mentioning is that the size "large" is really more like a medium.
Nice heavy shirt or light jacket. Very well made and in great (new) shape.
gave this jacket to my son and he loves it! new condition with two nice rear pockets. czech gear and clothing is really A-1
I bought two and wear them as hiking/woods shirts. They're a bit thicker, so better for cooler weather. My only complaints are the lower pockets are on the back of the shirt, it's a bit short for me (I'm about 6'), and the material is somewhat uncomfortable. You may want to look for another option if you have sensitive skin or just wear it when it's cool enough for a long sleeved undershirt. All in all a decent buy, though.
Years ago I bought one of these at a local surplus store and it quickly became one of my favorite 'shirts' in cooler weather. Beautiful olive drab. Quality! Looks sharp and pockets galore! Launder with all my other clothes and hang it up when the dryer quits and no wrinkles. So glad I found this here! Heck of a by!
The size of the jacket is not quite what you think. I am 6 ft tall 205lbs and it is to tight for my shoulders. Everywhere else it is perfect. The jacket was never issued. It was perfect! Since I could not wear it I asked which one of the kids might like. My wife said all of them but this one is mine. So I guess I just found X-mas presents!! You can't go wrong with this jacket.
First and foremost...my opinion on the sizing of this jacket is that it is not a size large. It is more of a men's medium in my opinion...somewhere between a M and an L.. I'm 5'10" and 210. I was "fat guy in a little coat" with this. could not move or button it up. For the price I figured I'd take a shot based on another user review. No worries as I gave it to a special lady and she loves it! So if you are a smaller man or a woman you need to order this. It is beautiful. Mine came unissued and perfect. Canvas/cotton is thick and supple. It is higher quality than the swiss field jacket. I am so very disappointed that this jacket does not fit. I wish I could get my hands on a true XL. It has a military look to it of course, but you could roll with this as an overshirt with jeans and not look like a crazy prepper or something. You could wear this casually or hunting...whatever. The color and fabric is second to none...for the price it's a steal of a deal. Please let me know how I can get my hands on one that fits! Awesome field jacket! Best I have seen.
I ordered this field shirt jacket not knowing what to expect. When I received the jacket I was most surprised, in a good way. Firstly the jacket is darker than the photos and a beautiful dark green heather color. It's not made from the typical cheap feeling surplus cotton canvas material, it's made from a really nice good to the touch material. The sizing is spot on. It's a large, but XL wearers can squeak by with this sizing too. It has a nice waist synch for getting that custom tailored fit that I love (makes me look more slender) but also locks out the cold gusts. I like the jacket so much I'm about to order another it looks and feels like a much more expensive field jacket.
The back butt pockets are super cool, and make the jacket even that much more neat. It has a nice hidden pocket system under the left breast pocket too. I'm 6'2 , 200 pounds.. and it fit me perfectly through the chest, sleeves were nice and long. An all around winner. Love it.
so I've received mine in the mail the other day and wish it wasn't summer very well built plenty of pockets whether your working or at the rang shooting this will keep you warm I took it to work and used it in the walk in cooler while i was working and the draw strings inside helped out alot from air blowing up the jacket and for $7 just buy one and keep it in your truck i mean what do you got to lose.
Very durable material and construction. Interesting pockets located at the lower back of the jacket.
Best overcoat jacket to keep you dry and warm. Just can't beat the price!
