Austrian Army M65 Gore-Tex Jacket
This Austrian army M65 "Gore-Tex"* jacket is genuine military surplus issue! It has a waterproof and breathable membrane that is sandwiched between an outer protective fabric layer, to protect the membrane from damage, and a comfortable inner lining. These jackets allow water vapour (sweat) to escape while keeping out the wind and rain.
* Please note that some garments may have an alternatively branded microporous membrane rather than a Gore-Tex branded one. These garments, supplied for military orders, are of course still top specification and so Gore-Tex should be regarded as generic description. See our technical notes page.
Other feature include:
- Good used condition (Grade 1).
- Rolled Gore-Tex hood that can be concealed in the collar when not needed.
- Shoulder epaulettes.
- Large storm collar to protect the neck and face from the elements.
- 4 large pockets secured by press studs and 1 inner lining pocket.
- Austrian army olive green colour.
- Zip fastened with press stud storm flap.
- Press stud adjusted cuffs.
- Austrian military (Bundesheer) cloth badge emblem on the left arm.
Very stylish Gore-Tex jacket in the classic M65 style, very hard wearing and excellent value for money. If you have any questions about this waterproof please feel free to email email@example.com. We will be only too pleased to help.
Austrian M65 Gore-Tex jacket for sale from Forces Uniform and Kit, the genuine army surplus clothing company.
Arrive really quickly. Can't fault the quality. Considering the jacket is 20 years old, there is very little wear.
A quick spray with a water repellent, just to be sure, and I'm now ready for some autumn/winter camping with my Scouts.
A good solid jacket that I'm not worried to stand close to a camp fire in.
Great quality at a sensible price.
I have purchased several of these jackets over several years. In all cases the jacket has been exactly as described: either grade 1 with minimal or no repairs or in the case of one jacket apparently new and unissued. The most recent purchase has one small area of professional repair and has been cleaned prior to sale. Metal parts of the zip had fused together after the cleaning process, but a dousing of WD40 freed it of reasonably easily. I echo all the other reviews in that these jackets are an excellent purchase, fully warm and weathertight in the roughest of weather. Very good service from Forces Uniform - quick delivery and a fine product to be recommended
Jacket delivered on time. Excellent quality. Performed exactly as expected and I ordered the XL so will have room for extra layers when the cold weather arrives. I found the hood was also an excellent fit as sometimes these can be huge or too tight. Overall this is a great jacket, great value for money and well deserving of the 5 star rating.
At 6'2" and 44" chest, the size was a perfect fit. Good soft cotton outer, it was put to use straight away on a day of heavy showers, and an outing to go fly fishing. Water 'beaded' on the ?proofed cotton outer and, despite some heavy squalls, the hood and Sympatex (Goretex equivalent) liner did the job of keeping the water out. Combined with the Austrian army Goretex trousers/salopettes bought at the same time (and unlike other fishermen out that day) I was absolutely cosy and dry. Great value, great service - and great kit. EXCELLENT - and highly recommended,
Jacket arrived in excellent condition, allowed for extra layers when ordering chest size, i will be using this as my preferred winter jacket as it is such good quality ....
Jacket arrived promptly and in great condition. Unfortunately the arms were too short after a quick email a larger size was suggested and found for me!
Very happy customer!
I received an email in reply, which asked me to include a receipt for proof of postage with the return. Unfortunately the parcel was already on its way by then, but never mind.
The jacket that I received is in A1 condition (might be new by the look of it), so I am very pleased with the end result. This is the second jacket that I have bought from from Force Uniforms and Kit and, overall, I am impressed with their prompt service and response to problems. Yes, I will order more items from them in future
I received my jacket promptly, but when I tried it on I found that it was mis-shaped and not wearable. The lining seems to have been damaged and gentle but firm pulling will not straighten the jacket out. I am guessing that it was boil washed or something and the lining has stuck together in the process. I don't want to yank it back into shape and risk damaging it so I am returning for a replacement. I am annoyed that I will have to pay return postage for a jacket that would clearly not have been up to scratch when it was put into the delivery bag.
Excellent Service and the jacket is excellent quality. The "regular" size fits perfectly (185cm tall, 40 inch chest). Would highly recommend.
Good service and delivery as stated. Medium is true to size - 40 inch chest expanded. Buy the long version if you want it to cover your bum.
This was bought as a present (from a wishlist) and I wasn't sure if it was okay being second hand (or taken from storage). However. the recipient was delighted!
I have a Gortex jacket myself and I know how horrendously expensive they are - but I have to say, this M65 is excellent value.
Great quality as described and terrific service
Jacket delivered very quickly as per schedule.
I am absolutely blown away by the superb quality of this garment. Very hard to tell that it is not new. I ordered an XL on the basis of the published size guide and it was spot on.
Most of us will know how expensive goretex jackets are. This jacket is immense value for money.
I was not aware of Forces Uniform and Kit before now. It will be my first port of call in future.
Great jacket, waterproof and surprisingly warm too. Great service too!
Very pleased with the jacket, condition excellent, fit super, everything that I expected. Also the delivery was very efficient. Thanks.
Quick delivery, great condition. Very happy with product.
Arrived quickly. Lovely condition. Mine IS Goretex. Threw a bit of water onto it to test if it had been proofed and the water rolled off beautifully. Fits well and sleeve length is perfect. I even like the Austrian army patch. It's as nice as any M65 jacket from any fashionable outlet, but with clever little practical features like double inside pockets and the hood cord which is captive in the neck of the jacket. Press studs are nice and tight without any fear of them popping open. Overall 5 stars.
This jacket is absolutely brilliant almost new condition . Can’t rate this company high enough, incredible customer service. Really fast delivery. Highly recommended, well done
Excellent delivery service, jacket fits well, pleased with my purchase. absolute bargain
Service delivery all very good. Original size too big so sent it back. Replaced with a smaller size. Only thing not happy with is the badge on the arm is not sewn on properly. I've had to take it to a seamstress. Reason for 3star.
Cracking coat. Surprised how smart and how good the condition was.
Only had it a couple of weeks but so far exceeded all my expectations.
Will be buying again for sure.
held off reviewing until I could test in our lovely British 'winter' weather and today was the day. Caught in two downpours with no time for huddling under cover and this beaut kept me totally dry; the hood was deployed on both occasions and not one drop got through. Bloody well impressed with this and to think I'd been mulling over some over-priced branded crud at 5x the price. Outstanding.
Brilliant outdoor jacket warm and waterproof and looks good
Excellent outdoor Jacket and great service. Will be ordering more for my staff in the near future.
Excellent smart outdoor jacket. Great service and a jacket which is in a new condition. I have also used it for skiing in the Caucauses mountains. Will certainly use this company again.
I have been buying these jackets for a number of years. The jacket is waterproof and windproof. Being goretex you don't get all sweaty if you are on the go.
These jackets are very hard wearing and smart in appearance.
I bought my jacket here because I could obtain a jacket in good condition the correct cheast size and also offered in the length I needed (Long).
Delivery was very fast to.
i originally bought the jacket to use for beating as it is lightweight, wind and waterproof, but it is so good that I don't want to wear it through brambles and blackthorn hedges! it was delivered very quickly and it is in perfect condition (looks brand new). Lovely jacket, highly recommended and fantastic service from Forces Uniform and kit - would definitely buy again from this company.
Excellent jacket, almost too smart to use working outdoors! Perfect condition and the service received was very prompt and cannot be faulted.
A very good quality jacket in lightly used condition, very comfortable too.
What is even better was the outstanding service from Forces, Uniform & Kit.
They were very quick to sort out a size better fitting than the one I first ordered, with fast delivery both times. This is very much appreciated as getting the fit right isn't always easy so this kind of service is invaluable..
I got a Sympatex version which, I think, will be more robust than the Gore-Tex. I would class it as in grade1+ condition.
Thanks very much to all at Forces, Uniform & Kit, keep up the excellent work and have a great Christmas!
First class, good quality jacket bought for picking up, does the job, saves using expensive barbours.The service from the company was second to none will use again.
jacket arrived in excellent condition, really pleased with it. as others have said smelt a bit musty (like all campiing gear does after being stored) but after washing it and retreating Gore-tex (as precaution, may have been fine without it) it's perfect and most importantly keeps me dry. unlike the £160 North Face jacket i used to wear. will definitely buy from this site again, fantastic service many thanks!
As the very proud owner of a warm, hard wearing, dry and snug Gore-Tex jacket - I'm one happy bunny!
Tough, hard wearing and warm! Everything that I need this to be for fishing. Smelled musty but that's to be expected and no big deal. Excellent product, superb service and great product. Will use again.
Great jacket, great service - says it all really. These are such well-made jackets and to my surprise even come proofed so the water beads off it. I used in some very tough conditions in the Cairngorms and was easily as good as jackets costing 10 times as much.
This is a fantastic jacket and looks cool. It is an over jacket so has lots of room but you will need other layers in cold weather.
Excellent condition, looks good and in a brief test repels water well. Comfy but needs an extra layer in colder weather as not as heavy as I was expecting. That's not a great problem though. Good sizing.
I've just worn this jacket hiking in the Lakes. Overall I love it because it's well designed, comfy, effective in keeping water out and the fabric seems really durable.
However on the down side:
The press studs on mine don't work properly and pop back open if I move.
The durable fabric outer layer (I think there are 3 layers) is no longer water resistant and quickly gets saturated with water. Hopefully some new wash in water proofer will sort that. Just to clarify, the middle water proof membrane does work well since the water doesn't penetrate through to the lining and I stayed dry.
The jacket is very heavy (mine is 1.2kg on the kitchen scales) compared to gortex hiking jackets, but of course a fraction of the price and more durable than most.
Great service from ForcesUniformandKit!
Good price, product & service
Fantastic jacket, of the quality you'd only expect from much more expensive jackets.
Great jacket and much admired. Very communicative and effective seller. Very many thanks.
Only took a couple of days to deliver. the jacket fit's great. looks new as well. wore it today in this bad weather were having no problem rain just beaded of. great for bird watching hunting fishing recommend to all if your into these hobbies. It is nice and warm and not to heavy .very pleased thanks
Received when expected, packaged well. Jacket fitted although I found the arms a little on short side. Slight mark on item, nothing to worry about. Yet to be tested in bad weather, hopefully will be ok and keep me dry. It is much lighter then I expected and leaves you wondering whether it will be warm.
Really good jacket.not to heavy but warm and dry.looks like new
I bought this jacket to be used as a cheap effective waterproof jacket whilst metal detecting. Unfortunately it won't be seeing any muddy fields as I've decided to keep it as an everyday jacket, it's extremely comfortable, weighty and warm without being padded. The jacket itself looks virtually brand new, had to really look for signs of it being used before. I did order some Austrian gloves at the same time just to avoid delivery charge, they aren't as good and look like they are two gloves from different pairs, one much more worn than the other but I'm sure with a wash and a bit of treatment they will be fine. To be honest the jacket is so good I don't really care about the gloves!
MY WIFE AND I ARE BOTH RETIRED SO WE HAVE LOTS OF TIME TO WALK OUR DOGS EACH DAY,WE WALK APPX.5 MILES IN ALL WEATHERS,AND WE CAN STRONGLY RECOMMEND THE AUSTRIAN ARMY JACKET,WE HAVE ONE EACH AND WE ALSO HAVE THE GERMAN ALL WEATHER POLICE COAT,FOR WHEN IT'S THROWING IT DOWN AND COLD,WE CAN'T REMEMBER EVER GETTING WET OR COLD WITH EITHER OF THESE SUPERB PRODUCTS.KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.MANY THANKS.
I've never worn the jacket yet,but it looks great,smells a little but that's ok,nice fit,keeping it for the winter.
Quality jacket, good value and great service (2 day delivery to Scotland).
...and thanks for the free carry bag (nice touch).
Smartest combat jacket I've had, could wear anywhere. Great quality and value and just the job for metal detecting.
Had a plain green one years ago. Been looking for a while, came across this. A modern take with a Sympatex liner (goretex equivalent as found in motorcycle kit). From order to delivery was rapid. Size wise, I'm 173cm (5' 8") and 85.5kg (13st 6lb) with a 42" (107cm) chest in suit jackets. The large and short length are perfect. I'm guessing this is new and unissued stock as I cannot see any signs of usage. Some nice touches: two inside zipped pockets and plasticised liner to cuffs and hem of jacket to reduce wear. Badge on left shoulder is understated, so all good. Hasn't really been worn in our unseasonal 30 degree temperatures but I suspect Will be the go to jacket come the colder weather. Highly Recommended and at a great price. Thanks guys.
Excellent Jacket, over the moon with it, never had it off my back since I got it. Jacket in great condition and excellent fit. I got the XL for 44 inch chest . Service was excellent, 100 percent recommended.
Great response to product queries from this store.
Also quality product at a great price and speedy delivery.
The jacket looks unused and my order came in a handy canvas bag.
I rarely leave feedback or reviews because, quite frankly, I can't be arsed. On this occasion however, I will say that the product, service and price all exceeded all expectations. Thank You.
Although named after the popular M65 jacket this has a much larger collar, allowing you to zip up to top.
The goretex type material is good at fending of a shower, all round great jacket.
Many thanks for an excellent all season jacket and waterproof backpack! Couldn't be happier. Support and sizing assistance much excellent. Tracking went dark once the parcel arrived in Malaysia but it was delivered a week later so no dramas.
Quick delivery jacket looks new good fit highly recommend
I can't believe how good this coat is! Little sign of previous use and a perfect fit.I'm 5'10 and 46" chest and the XL 104 to 108 size is an excellent fit. I could wear a fleece/jumper under it but there is no need its so warm. The hood is really good and the high next perfect. Highly recommended @
Great jacket in perfect condition and a perfect fit. No marks or flaws, it's virtually new. Warm comfortable and good looking. Take the sellers advise regarding size selection and you won't go wrong.
Bought this for work, and I love it. Arrived in great condition and had only wear minor signs of wear. I really like the high collar and the neat hood hidden within it. Sizing is perfect, with enough room for a lightweight fleece underneath if it's really cold. So far it's kept me dry in several heavy showers. I would definitely buy again.
The jacket did show signs of having been worn so it was not quite immaculate but nonetheless clean and ready to go. It fits me well but I can't really wear more than a shirt and jersey underneath it, it was sized as 88 - 92. If you are bigger than170cms and 96cms chest then you might need the next size up. The membrane on my jacket is Sympatex, a previous jacket which was Spyder ski jacket with Sympatex kept out the worst excesses of a Scottish ski season which can be bad!
Bought this as a birthday present for my son. I ordered the wrong size by mistake so emailed to explain my error. Got an email back quickly to say it had been sorted and item in the post. My son is over the moon with it. Would definitely recommend
QUICK DELIVERY.SUPERB CONDITION AND JUST THE JOB FOR THE WEATHER IN THE EAST COAST OF
SCOTLAND.WINDPROOF AND WATERPROOF GOOD FIT ,A SNIP AT THE PRICE .PETE RITCHIE.
Prompt delivery and well packaged. The jacket looks like it has never been worn and might as well be new. I have worn it every day since it arrived to walk the dog and it is warm and wind proof. I don't doubt it will stand up to rain just as well.
I ordered one of these from another supplier on Amazon. The quality of the jacket was no where near as good as the one supplied by forces uniform and kit. Mine is virtually brand new and brilliant in the rain.
Excellent service , jacket in pretty much mint condition , will use these guys again
My jacket arrived quickly and well packaged. The jacket is the Gore tex version and is like new. I doubt it was ever worn it really is in like new condition.
A+ value for money
My dog walking jacket is now my go to jacket for pub etc
Arrived quickly 2 days after ordering, the jacket is high quality made and looks like new. The size of medium was correct in fitting. I am 5'7'' about 69kg and a 38-40'' chest size. There is enough room to fit a large jumper or fleece for extra warmth. For the price this is fantastic and if you like the jacket i would recommend buying from forcesuniformandkit.co.uk :-)
I took delivery of this jacket just over a week ago and have really given it a proper product test before writing a quick review. I would like to find something slightly negative to say but I can't - it is faultless. Totally waterproof with a strong zip and poppers and more pockets than I could ever fill even when out in the field. I normally take a 42" in an over jacket but there was no stock so I took a chance on the 40" regular and it is a perfect size, for layering up underneath as well. If I had bought the 42" regular it would have been way too large. Wonderful service and shipping as well. This is my second purchase from Forces Uniform and Kit and I can't recommend them highly enough.
What a great jacket. Overall condition was excellent. Small repair at hem which is not visible. Sizing was accurate. the jacket itself is great, kept the rain out on a recent mountain hike. Thanks Forces Uniform & Kit.
Excellent service, very pleased with the product
An excellent jacket warm and fits well.
At 98kg, 184cm the Large fit like a glove.
I all ready ordered another for future use.
I highly recommend this jacket and the services of Forces Uniform & Kit are exceptional.
Would buy from you guys again.
Fantastic jacket best value for money iv got in years
Lightweight and warm. Not used in the rain yet. Excellent value for money.
Good fit for 6' 4" slim build. I went for the 42" chest and tall body.
The service from this company is very good. Definitely recommended if you need well priced work clothes
