First issued to service personnel in 1965, the M-65 was designed as a cold weather jacket to replace the previous revisions from 1943 and 1951. From its first deployments in Vietnam to modern frontiers, the M-65 withstood the test of time, becoming a cultural icon still in use half a century later.
The TAD M-65 RS Field Jacket is TAD's take on the durable and versatile shell jacket and was an exercise in proportion and restraint. Featuring a modern but relaxed fit, bi-swing back, and articulated sleeves for freedom of movement, classic details such as a locking waist cinch, adjustable cuffs, stowable hood, and button-down collar help you adapt to your changing environment.
- Two covertly bellowed upper chest pockets and two front cargo pockets provide ample and accessible storage. Hidden snap closures keep your contents secure, and flaps tuck away for easy access.
- A lightweight hood, made of Amphibious Cloth, provides protection from light moisture. When not in use, the hood stows away in the stand-up collar.
COMFORT AND DURABILITY
- The Nylon / Cotton (NYCO) Ripstop (RS) material, blends the durability of nylon with the breathability of cotton to strike the perfect balance between comfort and durability. Using a special reinforcing technique, ripstop materials stop small tears from spreading into larger holes. This sturdy fabric is able to withstand long term land-based missions and allows you to move swiftly through rough terrain. It also features a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish to resist precipitation.
