  1. Great quality M-65 Review by Keith
    Quality
    Value

    This is truly a high-quality jacket, in my view an excellent example of how the M-65 design should be executed. I purchased and returned one of the popular Chinese made M-65s from a large online retailer for a fraction of the price of this coat, but the model I received was not nearly the quality of the Cockpit. The zipper, stitching, snaps, and buttons are flawless.

    I'll discuss briefly the color, fit, and sizing.

    The color is green but not as drab as most M-65s I have seen. It is certainly lighter than vintage models. If you want that dark, dark olive, you may not be happy with this. I expect there is some color variation from coat to coat, so you may get a darker one than mine. Still, I received compliments the first day I wore this, and probably still do on half the days I wear it. Few garments get this attention.

    The fit is boxy, per the original design. The waist can be snugged a bit with the drawstring, but this is not a fitted garment by today's standards. I asked a Chicago tailor if he could alter a large for me, but given the complexity of the design (liner, drawstrings, sleeve complexity, etc.) the cost of alterations would have matched the cost of the coat.

    Regarding sizing, I purchased a medium and a large and kept the medium. I am a 5'7" 200# weightlifter with an average 44" chest but perhaps above average shoulder and arm size. The medium fits me without a liner while wearing a dress shirt. I believe I can wear a dress shirt with either a sport coat or a liner under this coat, but not both, and anything more than a dress shirt and sweater will be crowded. However, the large is quite large indeed--in particularly the sleeve length. Sleeves would need to be altered had I kept the large. I find the end of sleeve design obnoxious on the M-65, and excessive length would amplify the annoyance. I'm pretty sure no one ever wants the end of sleeve design and it should be made with a normal rounded cuff immediately. The large fit me loosely in the shoulders, but was baggy in the midsection.

    The Cockpit USA M-65 Field Jacket is an outstanding jacket. The quality is excellent and the sizing is perfect. The inner liner is much more substantial than similar jackets. This jacket is well worth the price. I highly recommend this jacket and Cockpit USA. (Posted on 5/24/2019)

  4. DON’T CHEAP OUT. WILL THE REAL M65 PLEASE STAND UP? Review by Aaron
    Quality
    Value

    To me, theres just something fundamentally wrong about buying US Military apparel (= American symbol) thats made in China or Vietnam, and particularly in this case if you have any idea of when, where, and why the M-1965 field jacket was introduced. Consequently I became interested in Cockpit USA when trying to replace my old Alpha M65 (made in USA - before they, and seemingly all other American manufacturers, outsourced M65 production). Anyways, much to my surprise I received a sizing recommendation from Jacky (who I believe to be the/an owner of Cockpit USA) almost instantly after requesting. I think its safe to say customer service like that is uncommon in this day and age. Ultimately I just ordered my normal size (XL) and from the first second I picked it up I could tell that the quality of this garment is second to none. I absolutely love the fit and find the jacket to be super smart looking. Personally I also like the fact that it covers my butt, oh yeah, and it doesn’t hurt that my wife says it makes me look totally bad ass... But long story short – while I, too, cringed at the price at first, I'm really glad now that I didn't cheap out. This jacket is the real deal - a classic style and a high quality American made product - and I couldn’t be happier with it. Money well spent in my book. So much that I'm even hoping to get their USN Peacoat sometime soon! (Posted on 10/5/2017)

  5. Awesome M65 Review by James
    Quality
    Value

    I'm a bit of an M65 junkie since the 80's. The larger sizes on Mil contract and US made commercial versions 'aint what it used to be.

    Received my Cockpit USA M65 this week and knew immediately this was the real deal.

    Sizing: Just take not that an XXL Cockpit will fit the same as an XL contract jacket. Just order your normal size. These are not 'slim fit' jackets. My Cockpit XXL fits the closest to my 1969 Sportmaster inc contract jacket. The arms are not too baggy either which I appreciate.

    Materials and construction: The nyco shell material is identical to the earlier M65's that I own as is the lining. Good M65's drape nicely on the shoulders and the collar just naturally falls into place. The Cockpit ranks right up there. Construction is excellent.

    My only recommendation to cockpit USA is to move the epaulette buttons a bit closer to the collar so they lay flatter and add the elastic waist drawstring.

    Summary: Very close if not identical to real deal Viet-Nam era jackets. Keep in mind that the later US made commercial jackets are a bit different to the 'nam era jackets so comparing the cockpit M65 to my later US Alpha's is a bit pointless. Great work on this jacket! (Posted on 12/20/2016)

  6. Happy Customer Great Jacket. Review by Philip
    Quality
    Value

    Owning the Alpha Industries and Rothco versions of this jacket both made in China I was looking for an M65 made in the USA.
    This jacket does not disappoint. It's extremely well made. The fit is not as loose as the Alpha or Rothco but fits much better. I was not sure would fit better XL or 2XL. The Alpha / Rothco jackets I have are both XL. Taking the opportunity to visit the show room in NYC I got to try both the XL and 2XL. I chose the 2XL. I am extremely pleased with this jacket and like to say thank you to Harlem at Cockpit for his help and assistance with my purchase. If in NYC I would highly recommend a visit to Cockpits show room as it is an Aladdin's cave of well made garments. Thank you Cockpit USA I am a very happy customer. (Posted on 11/13/2016)

  7. Outstanding Review by carlos

    For a very long time I wanted to replace an original M-65 Field Jacket that my Grandfather gave me as a gift in 1979.
    For the past two years I've been searching for a jacket that would resemble the original M-65 with little to no luck.
    While browsing the CockpitUSA website searching for a bomber jacket, I found the
    M-65 field jacket.
    The description, details and pictures led me to place an order for the jacket.
    Upon arrival and inspection, I was extremely happy with the quality of workmanship, attention to detail, material and true fit of the jacket.
    Thank you CockpitUSA. You have a very happy customer.

  11. Great quality... however Review by Jon
    Quality
    Value

    This M65 is exceptional in quality. Really made well and with great materials. Being made in the US one would expect this especially with the Cockpit price point. HOWEVER there are "issues" with the accuracy of this reproduction that I wish would have been addressed. Compared side by side with my vintage Alpha Industries there are three glaring inaccuracies with the Cockpit. First the jackets snaps are positioned awkwardly near the edge of the coat. So close to the zipper that one cannot easily button up the coat over the zipper pull unless you position it just right. That is not the case on the Alpha, the snap buttons are further away and thus more usable. Second, the Cockpit collar is ever so slightly shorter than the Alpha and one can notice this quickly by comparing the edges of both collars. And lastly, the Cockpit did not have a decent zipper pull like almost all M65 copies do... all that was tied to my Cockpit zipper was a silly little strip of leather which literally untied itself and fell off the zipper when I first unboxed it. You would think that for a $370 US made jacket they would put a decent zipper pull like the original M65's. All in all, I like the jacket but I feel Cockpit should have nailed it better, makes me wonder if they ever compared a vintage original to theirs, like I have. I'd gladly send my vintage Alpha to them... If they agreed to send me the first prototype ;-) (Posted on 1/25/2016)

  12. A great find Review by Quality fan

    Received my M65 today and am very pleased with the quality of the garment. The fabric is unlike anything I have seen before on less expensive M65 models. Well worth the price in my opinion. I first ordered a large but it was way too big, inside of the jacket it said 44-46, which is typically an extra large. Re-ordered in a medium and the jacket fits perfectly, inside reads 42-44. Am 180lbs and 5'10". If you are looking for a high quality USA made mil spec M65, then look no further. Also, it's great that the jacket comes with the liner, most m65's do not.

  14. Awesome Coat. Review by Scott
    Quality
    Value

    I cannot say enough about the clothing and the people at Cockpit USA. I started looking for an American Made coat, which unfortunately is tough to find nowadays. I had it narrowed down to 2-USA made manufactures. One Sunday morning I emailed Cockpit USA in regards to sizing and within 20 minutes, I had a response. A response on a Sunday morning from a real person. I expected some sort of automated email. My decision was made. It was a simple email, but an American Made coat and great customer service. No brainer. I ordered the M-65 Field Jacket. I have been wearing the coat for almost a month now and it’s a beautiful well made coat. The coat is heavy, even without the liner.
    I liked the coat so much a few weeks later I ordered two graphic t-shirts to give as gifts. The T-shirts are so nice, I regret not getting myself one. They look well made and are made from a super soft cotton.

  16. Nice but not Issue Review by Gary
    Value
    Quality

    This jacket is very well made, but it is not cut the same as my USAF issued M-65 from 1977 (Cherokee Industries). This XL M-65 seems to me to be cut for fashion (i.e., trim) not for function. I ordered the liner with mine and while it is USGI it's notanM-65 liner - the bottom button does not line up right. That said, you can't wear the liner anyway and have any room - it's way too tight. I have my old issue M-65, a repro M-43, and several other (Alpha & Tru-Spec) M-65's that all fit better than this jacket. If you want a fashion jacket, this is it. If you want your old M-65 back, look elsewhere. (Posted on 2/8/2015)
