St. Charles, MO -(AmmoLand.com)- As a Department of Defense supplier for almost 50 years, Propper knows a thing or two about making tough, dependable gear for the U.S. Military.

Now Propper has reintroduced one of the most iconic pieces of U.S. Military outerwear – the M-65 Field Coat.

The M-65 was adopted by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps in 1965 as a major upgrade to the coat issued at the time. It incorporated several new design features that made it a success: the 50/50 NYCO Sateen fabric provided superior weather protection, the integrated and storable hood was revolutionary at the time, and the removable quilted liner helped to make it a versatile piece for all climates.

Propper’s M-65 is available in the classic olive as well as black and woodland camo. It’s attractively priced at $89.99 MSRP and can be found at authorized Propper retailers.

Well glad I didn’t toss my OG107 and Woodland ones on ebay.


I still have a couple of sets that are STILL starched and hanging in the closet, with field jacket. :^)

2nd Amender

I went to a nightclub soon after my active duty release back in 1970. It was winter so I wore my field jacket, which had my BRO patch, my name tag and my CIB all stitched in black on olive background. I hung that coat up thinking the REMFs could be trusted, at least so far they wouldn’t f— with my jacket.

Don’t you know the coat wasn’t there went I went to retrieve it when leaving. Son of a bitching f—ing thieving no good never been nowhere, near seen shit jerk off, stole my field jacket!!!

I’m not laughing about the loss of your M65, but I haven’t heard or used the term REMF in a long while. And it was funny. Damn cheese dick daisy chain civilians.
