History of the M-65 Field Jacket:

 The jacket was introduced into the US military service in 1965 to replace the M-1951 field jacket which was an improvement on the M-1943 field jacket of World War II design.[4]It has a built-in hood that can be rolled up and fits 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 has velcro (HOOK AND LOOP) fasteners on the sleeve cuffs and collar.

The M-65 field jacket was widely used by United States Forces during the Vietnam War in which the jacket became useful for troops serving in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam, especially in cool weather conditions following monsoonal rains.[5] It was a standard issue to US troops in several other wars all around the globe as well.
