The M-65 Field Jacket (also known as M-1965 and M-65 Field Jacket), eponymously named after the year it was introduced, is a popular field jacket initially designed for the US military under the MIL-C-43455J standard. It was introduced into US military service in 1965 to replace the M-1951 field jacket still preferred by US Troops, an improvement on the M-1943 field jacket of Second World War design. The M-65 had a built in hood that rolled up and fit into a pouch on the back of the neck as opposed to the separate hood that attached to the M-1951. The M-65 also had velcro fasteners on the sleeve cuffs and collar.
