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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
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
Fast Delivery and very good quality, fits like a glove, a lot better than I expected for the price. Would highly recommend to anybody. Great service !
5 star good quality jacket for work keeps you dry in heavy rain.
Would buy from here again
Really pleased with jacket and service , arrived 2 days after ordering and fits perfectly . Jacket says 1999 inside but doesn't look as though its ever been worn and is perfect . Wore it while fishing yesterday for an hour in steady rain and it didn't let in a drop ( although my mates wax jacket did ) and the hood was great . Really bought it for Pheasant beating but its so smart I am wearing it all the time . I
Perfect in every way. Got the long version and a medium size (I am 182cm and 84kg) and it fits perfectly. Warm and comfy and it looks good too! Speedy service from the team. Thank you!
Bought Large/Tall size which fits me very well, despite my height. Waterproofing working well. One small repair inside and slight wear to ends of sleeves. Pretty happy overall.
It's not only a good looking, top quality jacket, but superb value and a good fit, I suspect unused (just looks like it's been stored). To get a new goretex coat at this price really is the business! Great service and response too!
In superb condition no holes or repairs anywhere, excellent fit as well, is 3 layered so warm enough on its own, trust the Germans/Austrians to finally get it right, cos the outer layer is 50/50 polyester/cotton the DWR has something to bond to, rather than just run off, wore it in the rain, water just beads like a ducks back, there is a label inside says 2000, even if this jacket is 16 years old, still the best dam money I've ever spent, loads of pockets, bought the longer version so comes it down over your bum, spent twice as much on Helikon tex, had it a year just leaks everywhere.
So very simple really, your new years resolution is buy this jacket from these guys, you won't be disappointed. Thankyou Forces and Uniform. Message Ends.
Despite reading the favourable reviews, I was very pleasantly surprised. This is a quality piece of kit. I especially appreciate the long option. The medium jacket fitted me perfectly and felt very warm. I haven't tried it in heavy rain yet, but I'm expecting the best. I bought two in the end. A medium and a large. The idea being that I could wear a quilted lining under the large jacket in very cold weather or when I expect to be less active.
I had this jacket stolen in the past and I believe the thief recognized that it was superior quality wear! I was ecstatic to find this site to replace it. I can't fault anything. It's so warm but I don't sweat and it keeps me dry in driving rain on my bicycle. No reservations; I highly recommend this.
The jacket is well made and there are plenty of packets, zips on the two inside lining pockets is a bonus. So far only tested in light rain but kept me dry. Plenty of warmth but breathable so good for energetic walks. If I had to fault it an extra half inch on the arms would be nice.
Jacket is amazing quality and is super comfortable and light. Service was quick and efficient. Highly recommend shopping with this awesome website.
Replacement for my very old BRbour. Performed really well working outdoors. Didn't get hot and sweaty. Not tried in the rain yet but every confidence it will be fine.
I already have one, bought another for my wife who has taken up pheasant beating and needs to fit in to the beating line. Jacket received from you is in excellent condition, with prompt delivery. Quality hard to beat at the price.
If you want it to fit snugly then follow the inches sizing, otherwise convert the centimetre sizing. I'm normally a 40" but the 88cm was too snug (especially under the arms). The 96cm is a better fit and I can get more than a shirt underneath it. I suspect they fit large to accommodate multiple layers in the military and the shop has sized them more on a fashion fit.
Great quality and way better than expected! Feels like its never been used. Good fit for tall 190cm+ guy and 90 kilograms heavy.
Very good service thank you
Wore the m65 jacket and gortex trousers while fixing a roof and fitting a roof light window. Rained for two days solid and house got wet. I did not. The goods came on time and were exactly as described. Five star service.
Excellent product, perfectly described and in pristine condition. Delivered when they said they would! Very happy customer.
Worn on a 4 day and night carp fishibg trip in rain where it kept my warm and dry. The outer fabric becomes saturated in prolonged rain but the goretex later beneath stops and moisture getting through. Good tough jacket.
Been looking for a M65 type jacket for a while now. This one fits the bill for me. It's warm, windproof, and fully waterproof. Just right for a walk out. Or for when the dog asks for a walk. Great hood on it too.
a good jacket
Extremely fast delivery, great condition, very pleased with my jacket.
An excellent jacket, but rathe let down by the plastic zip. This is my second one (the first still ok, but needs reproofing). As predicted, the zip failed on the first jacket and so I had to buy a brass one from ebay and have it fitted (not easy!). So, just be aware that with normal use the zip will probably pack up within a couple of years.
Excellent service from this firm, as usual.
The jacket I received is grade 1+. It takes fairly close examination to tell that it's been issued. It performs exactly as described in that it is constructed of both waterproof and breathable material. If you wanted to buy a jacket of this quality new and on the high street, it would cost at least 3 times as much. I'm delighted.
This is a great jacket and I'm genuinely pleased with it. I must admit I was slightly concerned as it was 2nd hand from the military but all worries went away once I'd worn the jacket a few times.
I go out everyday dog walking come rain or shine and its difficult to find a jacket that suits all weathers. The M65 comes as close as you will get, especially during the autumn and winter months where the gor-tex waterproofing really does work. I've deliberately bought an extra large so that I can wear a light fleece underneath when its really cold...... A good purchase!
I was looking for a cheap gortex jacket for walking and general working outdoors. This jacket does the job. Loaded up aroof rack in the pouring Welsh rain last weekend, the jacket kept me dry and comfortable, for the price good value.
I've just received this jacket - it is very well made, in almost new condition and is an excellent fit. Exactly what I wanted! But what I found Forces Uniform and Kit excel in is customer service - they didn't have the XL size but did some ringing around and got hold of a batch (there was nowhere on the internet I could find any XL sizes). Most companies would say they didn't have your size and that would be it, but I was very pleasantly surprised at the approach of FU&K. There should be more companies running like these chaps run FU&K
Love this Jacket... good fit... great condition... 100% waterproof. My son wanted one as soon as he tried it on, at this price for a Gor-Tex jacket I had no second thoughts of getting another.
