The M65 Softshell Tactical Jacket from Rothco combines the tactical features of modern military jacket design along with the proven combat-tested M65 jacket. What has been produced is a water resistant, moisture wicking, and wind proof jacket that has all of the pockets and classic look of the USGI M65. This could be described as the best of both worlds, a timeless classic jacket with the modern advancements in materials to make it a high performance jacket.
With the M65 Jacket you get a jacket design that has been combat tested. Department of Defense design teams drafted the original M65 jacket requirements and came as close to perfection as possible. The front of the M65 includes four pockets that are distributed two at waist level and two at chest level. These pockets are closed with snaps to cut down on noise and do not reflect. There are drawstring systems around the waist and chest to provide as tight of a fit as you require when wearing the M65 to keep body heat in and do so comfortably. The front of the M65 is zippered and has a snap closed storm flap to keep out the wind and rain no matter how strong the storms are. Topping all of these features off is the stowable hood that can easily be deployed if you are caught in a rainstorm without a hat or helmet.
