TRU-SPEC M-65 Field Jacket with Liner

Whether you require lightweight outerwear or a heavily insulated option, the versatile TRU-SPEC M-65 Field Jacket can adapt to meet those needs. It mimics the M65 jacket made popular by the U.S. military, so the design is tried and true. The water-resistant, nylon / cotton sateen outer layer comes with a removable liner for optional insulation. The liner attaches with buttons on the interior of the jacket and is built from polyester batting, an insulation made from quilted fabric between a layer of patchwork and backing material. Exterior buttons on the liner allow it to be worn separately from the outer layer.

    • Close to original.
      Reviewer: SGT K

      3/21/2019

      I have an original, med reg, by Alpha, made in USA. I've put on some weight in the years since and so I went for a large reg by True spec. The True spec is as close as you can get to the original. Very good quality. The fit is fine for me with the exception of the sleeves. They are two inches longer than my old Med Reg. Not a big problem. I just folded them under.

      Reviewer: Jared

      3/15/2019

      Quality is great. I really liked this jacket and wanted it to fit. I went off the sizing guide and originally bought the Large Long (I’m 6 ft 195). It was huge. Then tried the Large regular. Still huge. I think the medium regular would fit me but I am not ready to order and try again. Would love to be in the store to try them on.

      Reviewer: Jerry Wines

      3/13/2019

      I love this jacket!! I have had several most of which lasted past 10 years but this is the nicest & warmest & best quality jacket I have ever owned!!! Bar none! If I had the money I'd order another just like it for years down the road in case I live to wear this one out. And will be ordering another for my dad for his birthday because he loves mine. & is a Army vet from Vietnam. Would recommend to everyone!! Very very good materials & craftsmanship. This is my 3rd or 4th M-65 jacket but somehow warmer & better built than all other ones combined & waterproofing is amazing as is quality of jacket. Had wanted a black one my whole life but none of the surplus stores ever had black. It is awesome!!!

      I never had one of these issued while in the Marine Corps. We were issued the M-51 field jacket. Would have been nice to have one to wear while in Viet Nam. Good quality and material. Only bad thing made in PRC.

      Reviewer: Anonymous

      1/27/2019

      I believe the jacket might be even better quality than the original mil-spec jackets that were issued back in the 60s and 70s. The price is OK, not a steal, not a rip off (mine was $86). Liner is heavy and bulky but nice and warm just like the originals. You can roll the hood and slide it into the collar just like the originals.

      Reviewer: Ed Schrade

      12/25/2018

      I never buy clothes or footwear online but made an exception for this jacket. I had read some comments from other vendors sites that the field jackets were running small so get a next size larger. These field jackets are the actual size you want. I ordered the x large and that's what I got. Had to return to vendor for a large. The large fit perfect. This jacket is a very warm coat and quality is excellent.

      At 5'10", 210, I ordered a large. Felt like I was wearing a tent. Called customer service to process refund and reorder of a medium...super friendly and helpful. Fantastic experience. The jacket has met all my expectations. Comfortable, warm, wind resistant, appears durable and well made. After a lot of comparison shopping, I am glad I chose this jacket and company.

    • Good M-65 Reproduction at an Affordable Price
      Reviewer: Michael Manley

      12/20/2018

      I bought this to save wear and tear on my vintage USGI Winfield, and I like it about as much as the original. The NYCO sateen shell is authentic, it has the attachment points for the M-51 parka hood just like the original, and it's an all-around good field jacket. Fit and finish are good and it runs true to GI size: a bit loose to fit over uniform. I'm about 5'7", 160 and the medium regular seems to fit just right. This isn't the first TruSpec M-65 I've bought and all the others were well made, too. You might want to add an extra inch or so of velcro to the sleeves so the cuffs close more tightly. I did, and it was worth the effort. It's not USGI, but entirely serviceable and comfortable for everyday use. And the site offered it at a very attractive sale price.

      This was a gift for my husband. I had bought his last field jacket over 35 years ago and it was time for a replacement! My husband was really impressed with the quality of this jacket. Everything was 'better' than his old jacket; zipper, fabric, and especially the LINER! I was pleased with my purchase price. It was actually less than the jacket I bought years ago and that didn't include the liner! We are positive that you would be just as pleased if you purchase this jacket!

      Reviewer: Les RandlerNice

      12/4/2018

      Overall, a nice quality jacket. I am 5'10" and weigh 125 lbs. I was at the top of the small size but ordered a medium because I am recovering from surgery and hoping to gain weight. As with other reviewers, I found it a bit large in the shoulders and that the end of the sleeves were kind of wide/large. Not a problem, they have velcro closures. The liner makes it nice and warm. Outer material is water repellant. Drawstrings at the waist and bottom were way too long, not a problem, I cut to the necessary length. Bottom line is that I like this jacket. It fit the bill just fine for me.

      The fit is right, the material is right, but it smells funny. Zipper works good after waxing per instructions. I washed it but the smell remains. I guess it will fade. Hope it will fade. Slight color fade, but black is like that. My first Tru-Spec M-65, (camo) purchased at a retail store was fully satisfactory, just wearing out after about 8 years. It never had a smell.

      Tru-Spec products cannot be beat, this is a great M-65 field jacket. I have been looking for a black one to wear as a kick around all purpose jacket for a long time. I saw it on this site for a good price and ordered a Large Long, it was delivered quickly. It is just like the one I was issued while in the AF. I hope that it will wear as well. However I think that I should have ordered a Large Regular as this one is a bit long.

    • To small and big, in the wrong ways
      Reviewer: Mike B

      12/13/2016

      I purchased the Large/Tall Tru-Spec M-65 to replace my XL/Tall Alpha Industries M-65 which I've had since '02 that is now too big for me. When I received the new Jacket I found it to be just as roomy around the chest and abdomen (which is why I purchased a size smaller), but fit in the underarms far too snug. I'm afraid if I had gone for the Medium as many people in my research has suggested, it would have fit around a bit better, but been far too uncomfortable in the pits. Sorry Tru-Spec, this was a miss for me.

    • Great all purpose jacket. Cheap snap closures
      Reviewer: Wil. Lewis Jr

      2/5/2016

      This jacket is a all purpose jacket. It fits well, the liner is comforting although some of the filling has come out: very little though. I haven't given it a washing as of this date. The jacket repels water well and dries quickly. The snap closures on the pocket aren't designed to well. My upper left snap just popped as a result of frequent use and I haven't had the jacket for two months yet. I think I will replace all the snaps with Velcro. The hood of the jacket is great. It is easily accessible while wearing and its large enough the cover a helmet or any other headgear.The Velcro closures on the sleeves could be a little longer to cover the full female(sticky)section of the sleeve. Over all the jacket is a great "all purpose jacket."

      This is a great jacket to wear around when working out doors or even to hunt in when liner is installed during those colder days . It's close to matching my Marine Corps issue M-65 but the color is a little darker . Heavy zipper and large pockets . There is a hood in the collar I believe , have not tried to pull it out yet so not sure . I have worn it in the bushes and briars and it seems to be holding up nice . I think this jacket will last me a long while .

      I like this jacket ,I also ordered the Olive Drab. When I received this latest order (Black Field jacket) the jacket was folded in a box ,wrapped in the proper paper but was slightly (spotted)dirty. It was as though the jacket was dropped on a warehouse floor then placed in the box and shipped. The Olive Drab jacket came wrapped in plastic (in its bag) and spotless.I was disappointed with the condition this Black Field jacket was shipped to me.

      I was thrilled to find a field jacket like I was issued in my size but it isn't exactly like the old ones. I believe the zipper is shorter, and no flaps at the end of the sleeve to protect your hands. Other than that it is a really nice jacket . If they made it to original specs I would buy another.

      Just received this jacket. It is very similar to the field coat I had while serving in the Army. Really like it. It does size on the large side. I,m 6'4 and weigh 205 lbs and ordered the Large Long. It's a little loose at the waist but like the the Army version, has a drawstring. A great buy.

      The jacket is overall of good materials and construction. However, on the bottom of the jacket you are missing the last snap closer on the storm flap. This gives an "unmade bed" look to the jacket, as it should be "bloused". All military personal will know what I mean.

    • An Excellent Field Jacket
      Reviewer: Bard

      I prefer the Tru-Spec brand over other popular labels because the clothing fits me the best. I usually purchase XL/L outer-wear to compensate for undergarments, shirts, and other jackets/coats. I did the same for this particular Field Jacket, but as it turned out, the XL/L fit more like an 2XL/R. That's not a complaint - it's just that the jacket ran a bit larger than I had anticipated (in this case, a L/L would have sufficed). The sizing issue has been the "exception to the rule", so to speak - usually "over-compensation" works for TRU-SPEC outerwear (FYI - keep in mind when considering this particular garment vs. others from the same line). The jacket itself is great, and I'll probably order a size down in the future.

    • Larger-than-Expected but Great M-65
      Reviewer: Bard

      Tru-Spec - cannot say enough great things about their products. I love the M-65 jacket - it is well-made, attractive, and has many subtle-and-appreciated features. Why 4-stars vs. 5? I'm 6', 195 lbs; usually, a Tru-Spec XL/L jacket/shirt/tactical shirt fits perfectly. In this case, not so much - the shoulders are too large, and jacket's length is larger than expected. So if you're my size, I'd recommend a L/L (shoulders will feel/look more secure, and the length should just drop below the waist). Otherwise, and excellent field-jacket.

      I received my first field jacket from the Army in the fall of 1970, I was 18 and out grew it, so I received a second one from the Army when I was 23, received a third one when they switched to the woodland pattern.... Now in my 60s, and bought my 4th jacket , bought the OD green. This jacket is very close, only minor differences between it and my original issue field jackets.... I am pleased with it, fits right, looks right.... price is right.... good all round jacket .... now let's see if it stands up to a wash and some moderate use. I don't remember the button on the outside of the zipper flap? Does anybody else? I don't remember using it.

      5 stars would require perfection.... so very close but not perfect.... comment is based upon the new jacket received today, it hasn't been washed several times yet..... color is right, fabric feels right....zipper is good... I am glad I bought it.. the major issue is the pockets, chest pockets are the same width and length but not the same depth.... the hip pockets seem to be small , not deep enough... .. my issue with the pockets would be more important if I still went in the field like I did in the 70s with the Army.... It is unlikely I will want to put M16 magazines in the pockets ever again.... buy it. buy it buy iy

      I've been wearing the M-65 since 1968... this will be my third. I'm very happy with this Tru-Spec. The liner is a real plus, as it can be worn as a stand-alone. Just now waiting for my USMC transfers for the left pocket. :-) I recommend this to those looking for cold weather protection as well as authenticity.

      This is my second m-65. Took Dad deer hunting and his specialty coat couldn't take the teen temps. Gave him mine and couldn't get it back. Ordered a new one soon as I was home! You can't beat the quality or the comfort. Comes in big guy sizes too and that is us! Lifelong customer just made.
