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.

    Amazing Parka!

    Great Parka. Probably the best M65 parka you can get with goretex or the other similar fabric for $100. Amazing value.

    Had a slight issue with getting a sympatex instead of a gortex parka but the guys at kommando store were very helpful and fixed the issue fast

    Great

    Probably the best jacket I've gotten from here so far. American design, Teutonic quality. Only wish it was thicker like the standard (non-waterproof) one, but I think this was the better choice for where I live- it pisses rain constantly.

    Great jacket

    Used it in the snow storm we've been having here. Warm enough but not too warm to layer underneath. Comfortable with nice pockets and zippers/snaps.
