Just like a trusty timepiece, most men have a Field Jacket in their closet. The Field Jacket has become a popular icon in Hollywood, made famous by Al Pacino (Serpico), Robert De Niro (Taxi Driver) and even Jean Claude Van Damme (Bloodsport). The real roots of the jacket come from WWII and Vietnam. US soldiers were issued M-1965 Field Jackets as part of their kit. The M-1965, or better know as, “The M-65”, in Olive Drab is one of the most historic and iconic jackets of our time.
To honor this 50 year heritage, ISAORA has taken the traditional looking Field Jacket and given it their complete overhaul. Using today’s technology, the 3L M65 Tech Shell uses a 3-layer, waterproof, breathable stretch nylon from Japan. The garment is precision laser cut and fully seam taped throughout. They updated the style while still remaining true to the essential details like the stow-away hood, velcro cuff adjusters and multiple utility pockets throughout.
About 3-layer technology
3-layer refers to the construction of a material consisting of an outer layer, an inner layer, and a membrane layer sandwiched in between. The outer layer is a high-density nylon treated with a DWR finish, the inner layer is a fine tricot knit that feels soft against the skin, and the membrane layer provides a waterproof and breathable barrier to ensure you stay dry in adverse conditions. The membrane layer is made up of billions of tiny pores that are too small for water and wind to pass through from the outside, but large enough to allow moisture vapor to pass through from the inside—meaning you stay dry and comfortable at all times. The DWR finish on the outer layer prevents the fabric from becoming saturated and allows the breathable barrier to do its job. 3-layer fabrics are amongst the most advanced materials available and provide superior performance, protection, and durability.
