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.Read more ›
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.
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.
First things first: the jacket I received looked exactly like the one pictured above. Same quality. Same color (I ordered olive green). Same everything as pictured above. The only thing that was different was the inclusion of an easily removable "dog tag" chain which was located on one of the chest pockets. Unbutton the pocket and the "dog tags" fall off. Doesn't get easier than that.
If you search around online you can definitely find a better variety of pictures of the jacket. Amazon.com product review policy prevents me from posting links to other sites but here's a trick. Try doing a google images search under: "rothco jacket vintage m65 field in olive drab karmaloop". Hopefully the results should get you some better pictures of the jacket. (In case you are wondering, the pictures I am referring to are the ones with a young woman wearing the jacket in various poses/angles. She looks like she is of latina decent and has her hair up in a bun. hope that helps!)
SIZING - This jacket runs very big. You should probably order down 1 to 2 sizes from your normal size. I would recommend ordering 1 size down if you want a large fit. and 2 sizes down if you'd prefer a slimmer fit.
-- I am 5'11'' and weigh between 160-170 lbs, so I am a pretty slim guy. not stick thin, but not what you would call big or chubby either. I was wanting more of a slimmer fit than a baggier one, so I ordered down 2 sizes and got a size extra small (I normally wear a medium). Inside the jacket is a white patch that says "X-Small Regular. Height: 66in-71in. Chest: Up to 33in" .Read more ›

It's a nice coat, really warm and great for late Autumn, but the size is gigantic! I ordered my standard jacket size, and it's many many sizes too big. If you buy, buy small. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer

Good jacket. Definitely buy it one size smaller than you usually do and it will fit well, at least it did for me and some of the customers who left reviews on here.Published 4 months ago by Rob
