Unissued Austrian Cotton/poly 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. Like the original, it features a heavy, tightly-woven Cotton/Poly fabric. This tight and durable weave shrugs off scratches and abrasion, holding up fine in light rain and other inclement weather.  

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.

      Great buy

      Came in great condition and fits well with provided sizing chart. Little bit baggy but it's supposed to be that way. I you want a slim fit buy a size down.

      Österreichs Gloria!

      This is hands down one of the best jackets I have ever purchased. It's clean and simple design is truly what allows it to get away with anything. Water rolls off it fairly fast but will get damp if you are in a downpour. Makes a great outer shell in the colder months or use it as your only jacket on those brisk spring days where a windbreaker is not enough and winter gear is too much. I bought 4 of these to share with like minded friends and they all agree as well.

      Aesthetic

      New condition, as described. The sizing judgment really depends on what you're going for. If you want a jacket for purely utilitarian purposes and don't mind a ton of space to layer, then follow the sizing chart; had I done that I've got no doubt I could fit one of those huge Carhartt quilted jackets under it. I wanted a utilitarian all purpose jacket fashionable enough that I don't out myself as a psychopath, and so that's how I'm going to rate the sizing.

      I'm 73 inches tall, 38 inch waist, 44 inch chest, 225 lbs. I went a step under recommendation on the chest sizing (104-108), and got the recommended height (V-VI). My initial take was that when zipped, the waist size was about where I wanted it, and any minor adjustment would be easily handled by the drawstring. The arms and chest had a lot of space, far too much for me. My height is dead center in the size recommendation, and I found the length about two inches too long.

      So then, I took it to the tailor and made several alterations. I had the arms tapered, which eliminated a lot of the slop both in the arm and chest area. I had two inches hemmed off the bottom. I had the button from the hemmed off bit sewn underneath the collar, to hold the loop back when not in use. I also had the expansion joint at the bottoms of the upper pockets sewn down.

      Basically, I spent more in alterations than I did on the jacket. That said, today was the first day I had it back from the tailor, it's raining like crazy, the…

      Great Jacket

      I absolutely love the jacket. Acquiring was a bit hectic due to some USPS fuckery, specifically how I paid for two day shipping but got it just over a week later because USPS is pants-on-head retarded. That being said, customer service was phenomenal and helped me with my issue. 10/10 would order from again.

      Also, the spicy almonds I ordered with it are great.

      get two bottles of RIT dye-all in black and you got a fly coat

      this is actually the second parka I've purchased and they seem to come in varying texture despite being the same blend. the build quality is top notch and they are incredibly comfortable to wear; pockets are large enough to hold 64 oz of various beverages, a pistol, wallet, and any other miscellaneous effects a fella might need.

      I actually dyed this one black and boiled it in the stuff for about 30 minutes and it looks fantastic; buttons and everything with it. surprisingly didn't wash out the bundesheer logo too so if you need a nice coat which isn't autistic green (roasties just don't understand the beauty of olive drab) blow 10 bucks on some dye and watch the magic happen
