As many here have warned, order one size SMALLER.

I got this jacket in olive green as a gift for my boyfriend (who wanted a military jacket for a while now) and he loved it.

My medium frame sits right in the middle between large and medium so I always buy a medium whenever I can, but sometimes medium clothes will be a little too tight and I have to then try on the large size. Since I am of average size, medium can sometimes be somewhat tight, and then a large can sometimes still be too loose. But selecting the right size Rothco M-65 VINTAGE field jacket was easy to figure out.

What the other reviewers say about the sizing for these jackets having a tendency to be too big is accurate because the jacket is intended to be used with an inside liner installed. But the jacket is not sold with a liner, which must be ordered in addition to the jacket. Buying the jacket in your size without a liner, then the jacket will probably feel too big. Since I always try to wear a medium, I ordered a medium, and then I also ordered a liner for it. Without the liner, the medium looks and feels big on me. However, with the liner installed, at least it doesn't feel too big, and the insulation takes up the extra space, and I'm sure this jacket will do exactly as I expect of it when the winter temps begin to drop way below freezing.

But, I also ordered one of these vintage jackets in small, without a liner, and it still fits my medium frame perfectly. I do not intend to be putting a liner in this jacket because a liner will then make the jacket too small for me. So when they say to buy a size smaller, that is only if you don't intend to use a liner in the jacket. BTW these jackets are somewhat heavy and well insulated without a liner.

Every Vietnam Veteran I know brought his field jacket home and wore it until it literally fell off of his body! I know I did. I have been looking for another for quite a while, and this is it!! This is the best mid-weather jacket ever made, IMHO. While you can easily find the button-in liner which converts the M65 to a cold weather parka, I never used mine and don't know whatever happened to it (the liner). Just buy the coat, and see what all of us already know: Uncle Sam doesn't screw EVERYTHING up (just most things)!

I served during Vietnam and this jacket is "deja vu" but my body isn't. I'm currently 5'10" 220lbs, rounded shoulders, thick through chest (and now through the middle). On a sliding scale from mesomorph to endomorph I've always fallen between the two but closer to endomorph. I ordered both a medium and a large jacket based on the sizing comments in other reviews. If I was at my optimum weight of 185 - 190lbs the medium would be an excellent fit (I plan to get back there so I'm keeping the medium). The medium still fits but at my current weight it looks like a fat guy wearing a jacket that's a tad small. The large fits great! So, if you are built like me (~5'10" and packing 30 extra lbs) the large jacket will work well for you.

The jacket is well made. The zipper could keep a gorilla in its cage and the material used in its construction is heavy. I'm very satisfied with this jacket.

I saw what others said about the sizing so when i bought mine i got a small as opposed to my normal medium in everything else i buy. I probably needed an XS. I'm 5'8 about 145, not a big guy by any standard but these things run even bigger than i would have guessed.

Other than that the jacket is great, very warm. i just removed that lame ultra force name tape and dog tag and it's ready to rock.

Man, the U.S. military can design some really great clothing.

First thing's first to anyone thinking of getting one of these jackets. A reference. I am around 5'10" and 160lbs (slender dude). I ordered an X-SMALL and it's slightly big on me. If you are looking to buy one of these to wear around casually without any other layers underneath, order two sizes down from your norm.

With that out of the way, let's speak of the quality. The Ultra Force jacket we're currently speaking of is 100% cotton which makes it sit very lightly on the body as opposed to the Deluxe versions Rothco makes that are comprised of 55% cotton and 45% polyester and come with a winter liner. I own one of the deluxe versions (at a size medium, haha, I swim in it) and they sit a bit heavier and stiff on the body. This Ultra Force Vintage M-65 is much more comfortable to wear and feels as though the material is going to make this jacket last a significantly long time.

Now, for those of you worried about the removal of the "Ultra Force" patch above the right breast-pocket, removal is easy. It's just velcro and can be ripped off. The under side of the velcro can also be removed from the jacket with a seam ripper. This will get one closer to the original look of the jacket, if that is one's wont.

With this jacket comes plenty of pocket space, a built-in, concealable hood and an extremely heavy-duty gold zipper. Along with all of this versatility comes a very stylish look, making the jacket all the more tempting to purchase, haha!

My bottom-line:
The Ultra-Force Vintage M65 field jacket is a comfortable, versatile, and stylish looking jacket just begging to be worn. When factoring in all of these qualities, the cost of the jacket doesn't seem all that bad anymore.
