Description

This limited batch of 500 is a careful and studied balance of both the most elegant and classic M-65 elements chosen from 50 years of evolution, combined with modern re-imaginations and signature TAD details.

First issued to service personnel in 1965, the M-65 was designed as a cold weather jacket to replace the previous revisions from 1943 and 1951. From its first deployments in Vietnam to modern frontiers, the M-65 withstood the test of time, becoming a cultural icon still in use half a century later.

TAD's take on the durable and versatile shell jacket was an exercise in proportion and restraint. Featuring a modern but relaxed fit, bi-swing back, and articulated sleeves for freedom of movement, classic details such as a locking waist cinch, adjustable cuffs, stowable hood, and button-down collar help you adapt to your changing environment.

A modernized take on the original, the liner jacket was re-imagined as a fully functional stand-alone piece. Built with Polartec® Power Fill™ for light and compact warmth, the combination of functionality and flexibility delivers versatility without excess bulk or weight. Strategically reinforced with legendary Amphibious Cloth, the liner jacket brings the M-65 heritage into the 21st century.

Legendary Heritage

The shell is built from an elegant, durable canvas of nylon and cotton from the historic Halley Stevensons mill in Dundee, Scotland. Established in 1864, Halley Stevensons is renowned for their extraordinary weatherproof fabrics and meticulous quality. Custom-milled for Triple Aught Design from high-tenacity nylon and long-staple cotton, the shell is unwaxed, finished with a high quality DWR, and richly dyed to TAD's signature olive drab.

Modular Insulation

Featuring the distinctive hourglass quilting pattern of the issued liner and insulated with Polartec® Power Fill™, the removable M-65 liner can be zipped into the M-65 for added warmth, or worn as a standalone jacket. Reinforced for standalone wear, the liner jacket features Amphibious Cloth material on the shoulders and lower arms.

Thermal Regulation

Polartec® Power Fill™ is a soft and pliable matrix of polyester engineered with a proprietary hollow fiber construction that is softer and more durable, forming thousands of air pockets that continuously capture and contain body heat, while maintaining a resilient, equalized thermal layer between the colder air on the outside and the warmer temperatures on the inside.

Moisture Management

The DWR treated shell works in conjunction with the hydrophobic properties of Polartec® Power Fill™ to resist moisture absorption and dries quickly, while maintaining a high warmth to weight ratio. Made with industry-leading, cruelty-free, 80% post-consumer recycled content, Power Fill™ insulation technology provides greater warmth retention in colder conditions.

Accessible Storage

Two covertly bellowed upper chest pockets and two front cargo pockets provide ample and accessible storage. Hidden snap closures keep your contents secure, and flaps tuck away for easy access.

Weather Protection

A hood provides protection from light moisture. When not in use, the hood stows away in the stand-up collar.

Luckily I managed to source mine direct from TAD as I was unsure as to whether or not HH were getting any. Another outstanding piece from TAD. There is a reason there is only 500. Quality standard excellent! I appreciate it’s pricey but if it is any comfort it will last and won’t be affected by the latest fashion trends. Pro points are solid construction and Simple design. In a world of Velcro apparel great to have an everyday field jacket that does not stand out as either too tactical or two trendy. Simple design -removable liner, zip and button closures and simple pockets. It looks a classic piece and will blend into all everyday environments without drawing attention. Point to note in the video it displays the jacket with a TAD branding Patch on one of the pockets. Thankfully there is no badge on the jacket which would have been a mistake. The jacket looks much better without the badge and there is no obvious branding externally on the jacket to draw attention to the manufacturer. Sizing wise I am a size Medium 5’11” tall. 33-34” waist 39” chest athletic build. Medium fits me perfect allowing a base layer and hoody type top of fleece underneath if required with the liner attached. Some may find it a little tight with the liner in as well as two layers underneath. All I can say is that it is a perfect Everyday Field Wear jacket to go with your EDC. Whatever the Mission. As always stay safe out there in the field and a big shout out and Merry Christmas to the team at HH HQ. (Posted on )
