This is our first shot at the M65s. In all the years we've worked with Iron Heart, we never pulled the trigger on these for some, let's call it what it is, dumb reason. We were able to see them in person for the first time in January of this year, and it was over. We'd been admiring them from afar, but always put more emphasis on the N1. Little did we know the impact a jacket of this caliber could have on our customers. The versatility packed in this jacket could be considered even more useful than the N1. It has a gob load of pockets, cinches, a hidden hood, snap buttons, and a zipper all sticking true to its reproduction of the military M65 jacket. The fabric is so dense and hardy feeling. It's got a real structure unmatched by other jackets of the same ilk. This is the M65 to end all other M65s. If your size is out of stock, or you want a jacket with a little extra warmth...check out the lined version (keep in mind the shell is made from a different fabric).

Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is wearing a size Large in the pictures. He normally takes a medium in this but decided to test out the Large this round. You can see it's a bit big in the arms but isn't a bad fit overall. He could ultimately wear either size, but would likely opt for the Large for the long haul. Tommy is 5'10," 170lbs with a 40" chest.
