Initially designed for the US military in 1965, the M65 Jacket is a cold weather field coat, seen in movies such as Taxi Driver and Terminator, the M65 is now a firm civilian favourite. The Iron Heart version remains close to the original, including four front pockets and stand-up collar with a built-in hood, but with additional, useful side hand-warmer and internal pockets, it is also lined with a waterproof Ventile. The fabric used for this 2018 model is quite different from our previous sateen version (which was much "shinier").
All measurements are specific to this product. The best way to determine the size you need is to find a similar item that fits you well, then measure the same way we do (see "How We Measure" tab) and compare with the measurements on the table below. Actual measurements for the same Iron Heart item/tag size can vary somewhat so if a specific dimension is important to you (for example arm length) please ask us to check this before we ship by adding a note to your order. Measurements for raw denim garments are pre-soak (allowance must be made for shrinkage).
