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.

      Hands-Down Nicest Jacket EVER

      This is 100% without a doubt the nicest most quality jacket I've worn in my entire life. Comfort: Exquisite, Next-Level. Utility is massive with great pockets and Top-Tier Weather proofing. I personally prefer a heavier material, so I was apprehensive about the Sympatex but in all honesty the weight is comfortable and the material is noticeably durable despite the lightweight. It decimated wind, keeps you warm, and keeps you dry and comfortable. I mean come on, what more is there to say!? I'm genuinely considering buying another one even! Perfect jacket, snag one or you WILL be sorry! ÒwÓ

      It's like a normal rain jacket but cheating.

      So.... I got this a while back while waiting on my black gorka pre-order (still waiting Ivan). Now that Hurricane Ida has made landfall I've finally had a good chance to test it out. Results are in and survey says its a *insert your own sports euphemism*! Unlike Arnold, this jacket won't abandon it's principles and it will keep you safe and free.... from harsh outdoor elements. Do I recommend this product? Does Randy "Macho Man" Savage have the best Slim Jim commercials?

      Fits in all the right places, with a little room for more.

      The sizing for this item is not the same for a Flektarn Parka as you might think. I am 5'10'' / 195 lbs so after determining what this jacket would be used for I am glad to discover it is a tad on the larger size so sweaters or a plate carrier could fit underneath. Once you pull the mid waist band tight the jacket takes a bit more of a slim fit and looks very nice. I ordered the 96-100 / III-IV.

      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.
