The M-1965 Field Jacket, also known as The jackets are the M65, is a popular field jacket designed for the US military back in 1930's.  It was introduced into US military service in 1965 to replace the M-1951 field jacket, an evolution of a Second World War design, the M-1943 field jacket.

The M-65 field jacket was widely used by United States troops during the Vietnam War in which the jacket became useful for troops serving in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam, as well as keeping a soldier warm from the cool weather conditions that came after monsoonal rains. Originally introduced in olive drab, it is now produced in a variety of patterns including Woodland camouflage, "chocolate-chip" desert camouflage, Tigerstripe, black, navy blue, Universal Camouflage Pattern, Disruptive Pattern Camouflage.

The frontmost portion of the jacket has two large hip pockets and two medium-sized breast pockets. The rearmost neck portion and collar of the jacket features a zipper which houses a protective hood.  The jacket can be combined with a button-in insulated lining for cold weather wear.
