      5*

      I ordered my jacket around 7pm Sunday with standard delivery and it arrived Tuesday around 2pm

      It looks and feels amazing quality

      I took the lining out and wore a hoody underneath it and I was really nice and warm in 6° weather with a light shower and strong winds, I was warm and dry still

      I would highly recommend

      I'm 6ft ish with a bit of a dad bod and a large was slightly baggy just how I like it

      If you want a tailored fit I'd recommend medium but be aware the sizes are large normal etc, there's no large long sizes like other m66s

      All in all I would highly recommend

      M65 jacket

      Posted by Julian on 17th Jan 2019

      I used to buy alpha m65 coats in the late 70s and in the 80s this helikon tec one is as good I am a 48" chest and bought a large which was a good call fits snug with a tee shirt and mid layer with the liner in I think a xl would have been a little big

      Heliikon - Tex M65 is an outstanding version,definitely Fit for Role' and a bonafide bargain!

      Great jacket warmish to cold weather

      Posted by PhilD on 11th Jan 2018

      Wore the original army version for a year during National Service, this is almost as good as the original.
      In winter the liner is very warm, tested in Scotland in the last 3 years down to -10 to -15 C and 30+ mph wind - nicely comfortable walking. Without liner, great in autumn and cold spring, to warm for me in summer except in heavy wind, amazingly windproof.
      Nice water resistance but not really in strong wind-driven heavy rain as we experience here, although the liner definitely helps. Friend reproofed it with Storm last year after 5 years and it worked well.
      Zipper not top notch but worked perfectly smooth after waxing.
      Hood is not really a hood offering much protection, that was designed to put above the helmet in bad weather, I use is in heavy cold wind above a wool hat or in rain above a waxed hat.

      Heavily used in mountains, forest, hiking etc. for the last 3 years and still almost "mint" condition. Amazingly resistant to heavy battering!
      For the price, you cannot go wrong, excellent value for money - could probably buy at least a couple for the price of a lightweight goretex jacket which would not survive a year with me ...as I have costly experienced!

      Very well made in EU!

      Posted by john on 23rd Oct 2017

      I'm wearing the M65 as a winterjacket so I got a size bigger as normal. Air has to circulate you now and I must be able to layer depending on temperature.

      Quality is good but I can't understand why they used a 'female zipper' on it. Every jacket I own is exactly opposite of what Helikon uses.
      I removed the bulky and SHARP puller from the runner on the zip and replaced with cord and shrink tube. Works just fine.
      I would have liked an inner pocket though.
      Velcro on the arms are to short.

      Do not understand why they put on a hood. This thing sucks and they''d better left it of or made a quality one with a better fit and a double layer!

      Liner does the job but is a bit thin for my taste. Earlier models had pockets on them I understand.

      I like the fact that it's made in EU ( Poland)

      Would I buy one again. definitely :)

      The ONLY M65

      Posted by DoomDealer on 29th Jan 2017

      If you're looking for a M65, look no further. Seriously. I've had a few M65's (Mil-Tec, Brandit) and none of them come close when it comes to quality or finish. The Helikon is the one to buy. Tough, hard-wearing NyCo and well made; it has a real quality feel to it. The price has gone up slightly in recent months, but even at 70-odd quid it's still well worth the money. I bought the olive and the US woodland versions and have donated my other "M65's" to the local charity shop.

      great value for money

      Posted by David on 17th Nov 2015

      I did have an old alpha m65 that got ripped beyond repair, it was my go to jacket. After checking the cost of a new one plus liner, it was twice the cost of this version. I was hesitant in ordering another brand but the reviews of the Helikon were all good, so I decided to buy one.

      It only arrived today but I've been out in in all day. It's easily on par with my old alpha. The liner is great but the jacket is warm enough without it. Build quality is good and the zips etc. are all working perfectly. Fit is the same as the alpha brand. I'm in a medium with a 41" chest, great fit with and without the liner.

      It's so good I've just ordered the black too.

      Heinnies service was top notch too!

      M65 second time around, still good

      Posted by Phil from Wokingham on 1st Feb 2015

      I previously reviewed a black M65 jacket and was mostly very pleased with it. At the same time I purchased the black jacket I also bought a US Woodland Camo. The black jacket lasted approximately two years in constant use and I passed it on , still in pretty decent shape, although the waterproofing was begining to fade a little.

      Time to start using the camo version. All the details, construction, liner, hod etc are the same as my previous review. The camo design isn't as discrete as the all black version, but I see plenty of camo being worn on the street, so I din't stannd out too much. Not much chance of wearing it for anything other than casual or work though. The zip on this jackeet is far better than my previous one, although it is the same heavy brass contraption as before. It just works properly, the built in hood, however, is still rubbish. I did notice buttonholes on the collar, perhaps for an external hood, so perhaps this might solve the issue.

      Second time around this jacket is still excellent value for money and I will be buying again

      Outstanding version of a real Classic!

      Posted by Peter Keane on 2nd Jan 2015

      These are excellent M65 's! I was given a G.I. Original in1969 as a present and it and I parted ways too long ago to remember how,but I wanted one like it ever since !I began looking to find another early 2014 and after looking at literally dozens ( there's so many Make and or sell a version of this) settled on this one in O.D. apart from one other that is about twice the price(,as you need to buy the liner separately ) I could not find anything else that came closer to the original.The colour,fit,Quality and warmth of this is identical to the original apart from updates such as Velcro fasteners and adjusters .It is very warm with the liner in and as it is 50/50 cotton/nylon it is very rain resistant.The sizing is on the large size even with the liner in,I wanted mine to be a bit 'baggy',if you don't the advise about ordering a size down from your usual is worth considering.All in all,Outstanding winter coat,smart enough for street wear or trip to the pub,so much so I'm seriously thinking I need a black one as well now!P.S. They do seem to take notice,the Zip on mine is smooth,the pockets a good size,the hood remains more of a standby really but it does the job if needed!
