Just like my old one! Review by Ken
Quality

I just received my M-51 field jacket. Even though I entered the Army in 1966, I was issued an M-51. Using up old stock, I suppose. Once I saw the newer jackets, no epaulets, rounded collar points, I was very glad I got the older one. The only piece of gear I regretted having to turn in upon discharge was that jacket. Now I have a new one. It felt great when I put it on. I ordered one size down, as recommended, and it fits well. Thanks for making this jacket in the US. It’s worth the extra cost.

Replaced my dad's original Review by Remie

Growing up I had an original M51 jacket that had once belonged to my dad. I loved that jacket, I loved it so much I wore it into the ground. I found the Cockpit version and bought it as a replacement. Its a very accurate replacement, every button, snap and label in the exact right place. I look forward to many years of service from this jacket. (Posted on 8/8/2017)

Wonderful jacket Review by Bruce

I received your M-51 Jacket back in September as a present. It is almost an exact replica of the jacket my father had when he served in the Army in the 50's. The quality of the material and of the construction is top notch. I have worn it almost everyday since then, except when it was truly cold. Just last week, I received your Field Jacket Liner as another present, and it fits the jacket perfectly and keeps me very warm. I am a size XL and ordered a size L as is recommended. This jacket fits me perfectly and is very well made. You definitely get what you pay for.. Keep up the great work Cockpit, you now have a customer for life. (Posted on 2/22/2017)

What can I say, totally amazing! Took me back to when i was first issued one. The look, the feel, the fit....

As the saying goes, you get what you pay for and it's worth every penny.

Excellent Product Review by Joe

Inspired by a picture of my father wearing am M-1951 during the Korean War, I sought out a quality reproduction.

This jacket is a very, very good reproduction. Good stitching and quality fabric. It was worth the cost, I have an M-1951 Fishtail that was almost as expensive and has not the same high quality.

Service was good, I purchased an XL and had to return it for an XXL and that process was easy and quick.

Proud to say this is a high quality American made product.

Great Jacket Review by John

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)

Quality Plus. Review by Andrew

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)

I already have this jacket in an XL but have recently lost weight and had to get it in a L now that's how much I like this jacket it is so comfortable and warm. The XL still looks like new and it has been worn quite a bit. Big plus also is made in USA. (Posted on 2/3/2016)
