Google M65 jacket and you will find a lot of them. Google the history of it and you will find it was designed to withstand being penetrated by rain, yet be very breathable. Then apply its origins to what is currently available to buy from dozens of brands. Few of them fulfil its original intention.
Making it from the excellent Ventile fabric produced by Stotz in Switzerland, means we can remain faithful to what this jacket was meant to be. Over 50 years the jacket has become a bit of a fashion icon, but with that comes the constant downgrading of it due to price. We're not saying ours is the only good one, but it is one of the best if you compare fabric and origin of manufacture as we make it ourselves here in York UK. It's worth pointing out that Ventile fabric costs around 6 times more than most of the fabrics that you see this jacket made in. There is a reason for that and those who know Ventile already know the answer. It is quite simply the best pure cotton performance fabric in the world. Here is a link so that you can read for yourself.
The jacket is available as a waterproof/breathable single layer, or with a zip in ventile inner layer (see seperate product listing for M65 Liner) that will keep you dry all day. This was how the original one was made.
