The M-65 quilted liner was originally used combined with the classic M-65 Field Jacket as an optional warming layer, a smart way to make the uniform useful in all kinds of weather. The liner could also be worn on its own as a thinner jacket, a style that has won popularity recently.
Buzz Rickson's hasreproduced this garment according to the original one with all the wartime specifications. This version is made of a cotton camo fabric with the classic quilted seams that keep the polyester padding in place. The pipings are made of a olive green cotton fabric.
If you already own a Buzz Rickson M-65 jacket this liner will be usable together with it and we suspect that it also will work with an original M-65 jacket as well, but we haven't been able to try it for ourselves.
