  1. Great Jacket Review by John
    Quality
    Value

    As good as my military issued M51 hanging in my closet. Despite the fact that some features, ie button in the cuff and chest do not appear on the the jacket, they slim the sleeve, which makes it fits much better. However, it is way too expensive. (Posted on 11/14/2016)

  3. Quality Plus. Review by Andrew
    Quality
    Value

    My M51 arrived a few days ago, I live in Sydney, Australia. The jacket took less than 6 days to arrive. When I opened the box I was so surprised at what I saw, it was much better than my expectations and yes, there was a WOW! factor. I took my time to look over the details of the jacket and can say that the stitching is very professional and detailed. The quality of fabric, both the outer shell and lining is so close to the original item you cannot tell the difference and it feels right. The zipper looks and feels so much like the original and is very well made, I cannot see this zipper ever faulting. The press buttons are quality and so are the brown plastic type buttons and so much like the original ones. I ordered a large size as I normally wear a large long in an M65, it fits perfect and as I am a tall man there is ample sleeve length. The draw strings are sound and very much like the originals.

    This jacket is very smart and would look and function equally as a casual jacket in the city, sitting around a fire in the bush or its intended purpose, a field jacket with a rifle slung over your shoulder.

    With the temperate climate we have here I would not opt for a liner, just a shirt or sweat top underneath would keep me warm enough, this jacket will not let the wind in.

    There is also a comforting conscience feeling that you have something that is made in the country or origin and made the same way as it was from the beginning.

    I did also manage to buy a genuine hood in un-issued condition but at this stage I have no clue how to fit it, the instructions are slightly blurred.

    I was very happy with the communication we had when ordering and I can say that the order was nurtured all the way to my front door.

    Well done for a great product, you have won me. (Posted on 5/12/2016)

    The collar on my jacket did not have button holes. The one pictured in ad shows them. I have had to cut them in myself. Also, the sleeve cuffs only had one button. Original had two buttons on sleeve for adjustment to wrist. (Posted on 11/13/2015)

  7. Excellent Buy Review by Dale

    Quality

    I just received my M-51 jacket and put it on after unboxing it. The weight and feel lets the wearer know this is an "American made' item. I purchased another reproduction M-51 from a different seller and does not even come close to Cockpit USA. It will definitely keep you comfortable and warm when adding additional layers. If Cockpit USA offered the liners, I would most definitely buy it. Well worth the price!! (Posted on 10/1/2015)

  8. Very happy. Review by Ken

    After looking around for about a week, I decided on buying this M51 jacket from Cockpit. I am a XXL and that is the size that I bought and I fit. I found an original M51 jacket liner and all the button holes lined up and it buttoned right in. After reading reviews on the imported jackets I was afraid to buy one of those. I believe that there are none better. (Posted on 8/1/2015)

    A glance at this garment tells you the quality and workmanship involved in this USA made jacket. The jacket looks great and will last a very long time. When I wear my M-51 Field Jacket, it feels like wearing a piece if History. (Posted on 1/26/2015)

  11. Really neat jacket Review by alfred
    Value
    Quality

    After a brief delay for a backorder I received my M51 field jacket. I was not disappointed, the high quality materials,superb workmanship and attention to detail all contribute to the authenticity of this jacket. It also attracts a good bit of attention at places I go. Some of the old timers come up to me to check it out and ask me where I got it, and I tell them. They then tell me that they too wore the M51 back in the day. This jacket looks great, fits well for the size I ordered and is extremely comfortable. It is well suited for moderate winter weather. I would highly recommend this fine jacket. (Posted on 12/19/2014)

  12. Good value and well made. Review by Christian

    Quality

    Customer service was excellent and I was very happy when it arrived. The quality is excellent and the price reasonable for an American made jacket. The first thing I noticed was the considerable heft of the materials used. It feels very durable and will stand up to years of wear. My one thought would be to included an extra button or two in the event one falls off. (Posted on 12/19/2014)

  13. Love this Jacket! Review by nicholas
    Quality

    First, make sure to order down one size if you plan to layer with more than a hoodie. If you're looking for a fall/spring jacket then order two sizes down. For example, years ago I purchased a similar style jacket from urban outfitters, it was a large and fit great. I ordered the small in this M-51 and it fits about the same. The comparison ends there though. This is an awesome jacket! Made in the USA. You won't find this quality with a Rothco, Mil-spec or Alpha Industries jacket. I did order a large at first and had to return it. customer service was great! I will be saving up for the M-65 w/liner and if the quality is anything like this jacket it will be worth every cent, just like this one is. (Posted on 10/18/2014)
