TAD Gives The Iconic M-65 Field Jacket A Weatherproof DWR Upgrade

When a design becomes transcendent it is an unstoppable force that can only be made greater with each passing iteration, as those that are truly great cannot be knocked from their throne. The M-65 Field Jacket is one of those beloved pieces, and Triple Aught Design has elevated the silhouette to legendary status with their offering cut from P200 Hybrid Aero cotton canvas.

Working off a design that has been a mainstay of urban culture since its release to US soldiers in 1965, this M-65 Field Jacket takes the battle-proven garment and applies the street-inspired tactical treatment that T.A.D has become widely known for. Constructed from 7.07 oz cotton duck canvas custom milled by Halley Stevensons of Scotland for the project, the washable wax treatment is complemented by C6 DWR to make this all-weather coat extremely durable. Just like the original model, a hideaway hood zips into the collar and large cargo pockets adorn the chest, making this jacket perform well on any occasion. Available only in a stark black, this M-65 Field Jacket is sure to turn heads in the transit station or battlefield trenches, or anyplace that it is worn.
