Originally conceived for cool weather protection and utilitarian storage during U. S. Military operations in the late '60s, the Alpha Industries Men's M 65 Slim Fit Jacket offers inclement weather protection wrapped within a vintage military aesthetic. Its wind and tear resistant NYCO shell fends off brisk conditions while preventing rips and tears with its nylon heavy fabric. The concealed hood stows within a zippered compartment in the collar for extra protection at a moment's notice. Additional details include a heavy duty brass zip closure, flap closure chest and hand pockets, as well as drawcord that cinches along the hem, waistline, and hood. Please note that this version of the M 65 is much slimmer than the standard version, offering a tapered fit.
