New standard issue. The M-1965 Field Jacket, most often referred to as simply “The M-65,” is an enduring icon originally designed for the US military in, you guessed it, 1965. To honor 50 years of this most iconic of garments, we’ve overhauled it from the inside out and given it a serious upgrade using today’s technology. Constructed using a 3-layer, waterproof, breathable stretch nylon from Japan, the garment is precision laser cut and fully seam taped throughout. We’ve updated the styling while remaining true to the essential form of the original—key details like the stow-away hood, Velcro cuff adjusters, and multiple utility pockets have been retained. While you might not be be getting caught in a monsoon in the jungles of Southeast Asia anytime soon, you’ll certainly be prepared if you do.
About 3-layer technology
3-layer refers to the construction of a material consisting of an outer layer, an inner layer, and a membrane layer sandwiched in between. The outer layer is a high-density nylon treated with a DWR finish, the inner layer is a fine tricot knit that feels soft against the skin, and the membrane layer provides a waterproof and breathable barrier to ensure you stay dry in adverse conditions. The membrane layer is made up of billions of tiny pores that are too small for water and wind to pass through from the outside, but large enough to allow moisture vapor to pass through from the inside—meaning you stay dry and comfortable at all times. The DWR finish on the outer layer prevents the fabric from becoming saturated and allows the breathable barrier to do its job. 3-layer fabrics are amongst the most advanced materials available and provide superior performance, protection, and durability.
