The Austrian military M65 jacket is a type of military jacket worn by soldiers in the Austrian Armed Forces. It is modeled after the U.S. M65 field jacket, which was first introduced in 1965 and widely used by the United States military during the Vietnam War. The jacket typically made of a heavy-duty cotton or cotton-polyester blend, which is designed to withstand the rigors of military use. It's usually in olive color, which is intended to provide camouflage in a variety of environments.
The jacket features a button-up front and a stand-up collar, with adjustable cuffs and waistband. It typically has several pockets, such as chest and hip pockets, with button closures that can be used to hold various items and equipment, such as personal items, tools, and ammunition. The jacket can also be equipped with a detachable liner, typically made of wool or fleece, for extra warmth in cold weather conditions.
The M65 jacket is a classic and timeless design, and it's popular among military personnel, as well as people who like to wear vintage or military-inspired clothing. It could be also popular in some civilian uses such as hunting or hiking, for the durability and comfort that it provides, as well as its camouflage style that can be used in the outdoors.
In our condition standards, New (Surplus) stands for items that are originally issued to military personnel but weren’t used before.
In most cases, the military issues spare items for everything they can, in case soldiers must have to change their lost or damaged pieces of equipment or clothing. After 2-4 years (depending on the country) after issuing equipment to personnel, the military changes them to new ones to renew main and spare personnel equipment, even if spare ones weren’t used at all, so that is how unused military quality items comes to our warehouse.
Expected condition issues:
- Warehouse odor (long storage).
- Dust marks (long storage).
- Items will come with our packaging.
- „Expected issues“ - might appear on 1 of 10 items.
- „Rare issues” - might appear on 1 of 50 items.
- Written condition issues don‘t mean that items must have them.
