Rothco's Soft Shell Tactical M-65 Jacket combines elements of two great military jackets into one; the jacket features the style of the classic M65 with an update tactical soft shell fabric. The jacket is durable, lightweight & breathable, and has a waterproof shell. In addition, the 3 layer construction reflects wind, wicks away moisture and retains body heat. Additional features of the jacket include a concealed hood, zipper front w/ snap-up storm flap, 4 snap-up pockets, epaulets, hook & loop wrist cuffs for attaching gloves, and drawstring waist, hood & bottom.
Now-days I buy size large for my shirts, jackets, etc and they fit right.
So I thought that I should buy this M-65 jacket in a large size and I did, I just got it and it is too big, it seems like I should have bought a medium size jacket instead.
The problem is with the size of the chest my chest measures 40 inches and this jacket seems to be for people with 41 to 45 inches chest, you might say that it might not be too big a jacket, but it is.
Another thing, I also bought a jacket inner liner to use for this jacket and the jacket doesn't come with the buttons which are needed to attach this inner liner to the inside of it, since they market it as a M-65 I thought that it would come with those buttons.
I would like bigger size zippers as small zippers might have more future problems and the jacket's hood looks and feels too light duty (not heavy enough)and it doesn't look as if it is water-proof (the hood), but might be.
