Austrian Waterproof Gore-Tex/Sympatex M65 Parka

Almost immediately after being introduced during the Vietnam War, the M65 parka was cemented into the collective unconsciousness of the Western world. It is the military parka everyone and their mother knows. The design reigns king — like the AK47, the iPhone, and the McDonald's hamburger, some version of the M65 will be made until the end of time.

The Austrians have been making their virtually identical clone of the US M65 for some time now. In the past we've stocked their heavy cotton M65 — one of our all-time most popular products. This version is the generation after that, upgraded with modern synthetic waterproofing.

Sleek, sexy, and ready for rough stuff, it's a heavy jacket that'll shrug off whatever you (and nature) can throw at it. If you want a jacket you'll have for the rest of your life on this Earth and for the next three generations of your family, this is it.

Membrane

These parkas come in two membrane types: PTFE GPTFE Gore-Tex and Sympatex. Regardless of the type, all parkas are identical in construction, appearance, and performance. If you have a preference, let us know in order comments, and we will do our best to find your membrane type in your size.

      Outstanding!

      Haven't worn yet because I don't have much use for a parka in SoCal but I bought this for future camping and cold weather use. Very happy though with the adjustable cuffs, inner and outer pockets, length, the inside waist tightener is a nice feature, and its zips all the way up to cover my lower face. The fit is a little big but I ordered that way on purpose. Looking forward to taking this into cold weather.

      Best Parka For the Money

      Took it on a 3 day camping/shooting escapade. Went on a land nav course and went through all kinds of trees and brush. No scratches on the parka and it kept me warm and dry during the rainy days.

      10/10 would buy again.

      Perfection

      Fits like a glove and warm as hell. 6’4” 215lbs, got the 104-108 V-VI. Fits big like a parka should but perfectly cropped in the shoulders and hips and the sleeves fit my long monkey arms exactly. The swing out sleeve panels on the back make it super dexterous and the tall collar is great for neck protection even when worn open. Big pockets inside and out. The Sympatex stayed dry in light snow for a day of skiing but I haven’t tried it in a downpour. Best all around jacket I own for half of what I pay for Carhartts.
