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.

Specs

  • Outer shell: 50% cotton / 50% polyester
  • Membrane: 100% PTFE Gore-Tex or Sympatex

Condition and Care

  • Tag states to retreat non-Gore-Tex material after each wash.

    Very Warm and Very Cool

    This jacket is perfect for cold weather conditions, very durable, and you even get a neat Austrian military emblem on one sleeve. What's not to like?

    Goretex

    Great garment. Mine is dated 1997, no notable wear and not too fragrant. Good fabric weight, much softer than the APECS type parkas, has held up to all moisture so far.

    Exquisite

    Unlike myself, this jacket has some extra length so if you’re between two lengths, you’re probably safe to go with the shorter one. The material is not the same canvas that is used on USGI M65s but it still feels like it would hold up to abuse just fine. I find the pockets to be plenty usable and the condition immaculate. If you’re on the fence, snag one.

    Excellent garment.

    Hydrophobic performance is very good (see pics). Ran the sleeve under the faucet for 30 seconds and it came out completely dry. It's also very warm. Mine is a little big but it will be worn over warming layers and gear so no problem there. I'm about to go on a camping trip with it so I can update this review if I learn anything else about it.

    Comfy, warm, perfect for traumatizing small children

    Had this for a few years now and I adore it, it's my mid fall/early winter jacket and has been the best jacket I've ever bought.

    It's absolutely perfect to traumatize small children by standing stock still and slowly turning my masked head to look into their direction.

    My wife can not stop me this time.
