Still no OD Green, huh? Guess I'm out. Too bad.
Why does MassDrop do this...the shipping cost is almost 50% of the total value of the item. I would have purchased this item, were it not for this blatant price gouge. Shame on you MassDrop!
Jacket: $49.99 Shipping to Europe: $24.50 LOL, not buying.

most imports like this are going to be quite expensive to ship. Don't be too disappointed I've tried importing a small item from the UK and shipping was 17.50. I'm sure their are other jackets you could find that are not from the US.
M-65's are designed to be very large for the size. Leaves room for a lot of layers. It's military sizing. Wish I still had mine from when I served. Rothco is a very good brand. Better but more expensive are from Alpha Industries. Both companies made the M-65 for the US military.

Did they manufacture in China when you served?
Ive bought one of these in the past and most of the buttons fell off. What are other people's experiences?

I stand corrected. There are 4 buttons that hold the liner in place. I was military and most of my friends as well. Never heard of 'most of the buttons' falling off. I still call bullshit, or you did something to accelerate the button malfunction. I bet you didn't know really how many buttons are on it. The picture show two of them, where are the other two located?

I’m not the one who said the buttons fell off, so I have zero idea where they are located or if there is actually an issue. Just pointing out that it has buttons.
6'2"/185 and I had a size M from Rothco. The body was OK but the sleeves were super-long and wide. I could easily put both arms in a single sleeve. Dropped mine in a Goodwill box.
If anyone is looking for a vastly superior version of the M-65 with fewer weird sizing issues I highly recommend the Helikon-Tex version (it can be found on amazon, I believe). A bit pricier but I feel the quality is much closer to the original model.
No OD Green? Boo!

Yeah, there are photos of the OD but you can't choose it. What's up with that?
ordered XL and it turns out to be too big (arrived today). How do I return for an L?

It it the sand color.
Did you want to sell it? And how much?
I love my olive drab m65 and was about to order 5 for my friends only to find you arent offering olive drab.... The most popular colour. Please include OD in future drops and it will sell like hot cakes.
No OD Green?
Old discussion is full of weird size chart and how big the jacket is. Can someone confirm if the chart is still same weird one or it has been "fixed"?

The size charts are WAY off, ordered XL and the dimensions are all several inches longer than listed. Would like to return.

These are vendor listed specs. I would hope they're correct?
No olive?? I requested this drop, but I’m only interested in the olive.
No olive drab, no sale.
I don't get it.
Why display the green one when you don't even sell it. That's the one I wanted.
Is the "Urban Digital" grayscale or is it closer to ACU?
Who can explain that extra bit of triangular "flap-age" at the cuff? It's more visible in the photo of the black version, but curiously tucked under in shots of the other colors. I ask because I own an M-65, and have never been able to figure that bits use/purpose/function. I can tell you it's annoying as hell--you have to tuck it under again each time your put the jacket on, and your will push it right back out (and leave it flapping in the breeze), each time you run your arm through the sleeve again. Yes, one could modify it and be done with the issue, but I don't imagine it was put there on a whim. Anyone...anyone?

That would be a nice piece to still have! During the war effort, contracts were issued to dozens of manufacturers, Some of the clothing, coats in particular, were made to an amazing quality. In my estimation, as good as much of the bespoke garments you can get today. Sounds like you had a one of the good ones. Too bad those days are long gone!

Damn shame--and I miss the smell of those old Army/Navy Surplus stores (that actually sold surplus). Bought a few pairs of British Khaki officer shorts from such a place in Galveston, TX. I doubt those would fit anymore either. Oh well...
Well that's odd. Pics show an olive green but it's not in the options...
My issue with this jacket is the noise it makes while moving around, it is kinda like a crunching sound (like plastic), almost like wearing a garbage bag, real M-65 Field jackets I have owned are fairley silent... As for sizing, I usually wear a med. this is what I ordered and would probably reorder the same.

Thanks for the info, I have something to look forward too...
Btw: seems to be a old fashion flame war going on down below...

Whew--does it seem warm in here to you?
No olive drab color?
I normally wear a L-XL and even went through the measurements with my wife to verify my body dimensions. I ordered a M based upon the chart and what I received could fit a XXL easily. Unfortunately I cannot return so I guess ebay for me with this one. Found another M65 locally made in England and it fit perfectly as a L. Be wary of this product size.

I normally take L to XL, and based on comments here, I ordered S. It is plenty big... roomy, in fact. Sleeves are just a hair on the short side, but fine. I'm not sure what human physique was in mind when these were being designed.
Same, I dont understand what rulers these guys are using!
I wish i could purchase just the liner I have my field jacket already although 50 bucks is really good mine costed me 6 years
FWIW, I bought one of these from a local vendor. I generally wear an XL and that's what I bought. It is *definitely not* too big for me. I bought this for layering and it's just big enough to wear a hoodie underneath, without the liner. The sleeves are a little long, but that's how these are intended to fit.
Still no OD green?
Does this jacket include inside pockets?
blue3sword
I don't think so. I bought what I think is the same thing from a local seller. Mine does not.
blue3sword
No, there are no inside pockets.
Can anyone who has purchased this in the past tell me if the material is shiny? I'm looking at the black one and it looks a bit reflective in the pictures. The black in the pictures also looks grey - does it really look like the picture?
Also, wear a 2X in most coats and shirts; should I really be getting a 1X or smaller?
cjbreczinski
I'm 6'5" and have the 2X. It's big, an XL would probably fit, but I like the room to wear layers underneath.
cjbreczinski
No, its not shiny. As new, the material is a little stiff, but after a couple of weeks, it breaks in nicely. Now it has the texture of a heavy cotton jacket, as you would expect an M65 should be.
Anyone have a large they want to trade for my medium? Sleeves are just a tad too short...
ixemul
I would like to order one but leary of the sizing, I’m average build 5”9 what size should I get? Thanks!
I was aware of the sizing issues so i bought a Small...
I'm a 6'2" man and it is way to big.
PPoCT
Wow. Any idea what size dress shirt you normally wear?
Really, really bad purchase. After research (which I should have started with) the Rothco sizing issue is WELL KNOWN. It is inexcusable that no mention was made on the ordering page. The liner in particular is the usual made-in-China lookalike with grossly inferior quality stitching, the jacket is passable for metro-chic, but not by any standard, "mil-spec," or, "work coat," worthy.
I could conceivably use it as a concealed carry cover, if the sleeves were not 2 INCHES TOO LONG.
Just got mine, it's huge. I'm like a little kid wearing his dad's jacket in it. I ordered a medium as that's what I wear in EVERY OTHER BRAND. Bummed out as it's an awesome jacket. Anyone want mine? It's Black.
Niko_S
I'll buy it. If you still have it.

It went on eBay. Sorry!
