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.
