M-65 FIELD JACKET
The M-65 Field Jacket has become iconic since being originally on the battlefield. We have taken the original and examined the details down to the finest points, recreated from deadstock parts and manufactured our own cloth to be as close to the original as possible.
The M-65 Field Jacket features two hand pockets and two large chest pockets, ideal for carrying everyday essentials. The Talon zipped collar of the M-65 contains a lightweight roll out hood using the same material as the 50/50 Cotton/Polyester lining suitable for light showers.
This field jacket also has buttons on the inside which allows for an attachable quilted liner which we also produce (MJ18112), making this jacket suitable for wearing all year round.
The Flying Tigers
Nicknamed the Flying Tigers, the AVG (American Volunteers Group) was deployed to aid the Chinese Air Force and help defend China against Japan in the 1940s. The Flying Tigers comprised of U.S. Army Air Force, U.S Navy and U.S Marine Corp pilots recruited by President Roosevelt.
