About

The Woodland Pattern Camouflage, officially known as M-81, is a camouflage pattern that was introduced by the US military in 1981. It replaced the earlier ERDL pattern, and was an adaptation of its predecessor, rescaling the pattern to make it more effective at longer distances, helping to break up the silhouette of the wearer. The M-81 features a four-color, high-contrast design with irregular green, brown, black, and khaki shapes. This pattern was designed to work effectively in various environments, particularly in temperate woodland terrain. Over the years, the M-81 has become one of the most recognized and widely used camouflage patterns in the world, adopted by various military forces and often replicated in civilian fashion.

The COAT, MAN'S, FIELD, M-65 / WOODLAND PATTERN is based on the M-65 employed in the 1980s. It uses the same pattern as our existing M-65 but has been adapted and is printed with pigments on cotton fabric. The continued use of the M-65 system itself was likely extended by the adoption of this pattern.

First issued to soldiers in the United States Armed Forced in 1965, the M-65 is the definitive field jacket, a pop culture icon and perhaps one of the most significant garments in menswear design history. It evolved from the M-1943 Field Coat via the M-1951 and is a seminal piece that utilized tailoring techniques and pre-eminent functional application to deliver an extremely flattering but entirely utilitarian garment.

The M-65 stands alone in its versatility, through its proportions and the execution of details such as the snap-flat cargo pockets, concealed hood, and adjustable drawstring at the waist and bottom, the M-65 can be combined and layered by the wearer to elevate an outfit in nearly any environment or setting.

This version of the M-65 benefits from buttoned epaulettes not seen in the 1st Type, which troops liked for preventing heavy luggage from slipping from the shoulder. The four, deep front pockets can be closed with a heavy-duty press stud and the same can be found along the jacket opening, above the concealed, sewn-in zipper cover and bespoke MCCOY hardware.

Internal Urea buttons are provided to attach a quilted liner and velcro is provided on the collar to close, and on the flapped cuff which can be folded out in cold weather conditions.
