From a Field Necessity to a Fall Staple

The M-65 Field Jacket has been around for OVER 50 years and in that time we’ve seen it evolve from combat to everyday use. The Field Jacket was first introduced into the US military to replace the M-1951 field jacket and was widely used during the Vietnam War. 

The military jacket was designed for all weather conditions with a built in protective hood that rolls up into a pouch on the collar and hook & loop fasteners that allows for a secure fit. Four large snap-up or button-up pockets create ample amount of storage for soldier’s equipment while on the field or whether you’re on-the-go and need a spot to store your keys and wallet. Authentic M-65 Field Jackets include an insignia holder and name and branch tape for personalization. Rothco’s M-65 Field Jackets are made with a water repellent poly/cotton twill outershell to stand the harsh winds and rain. 

The versatility of the M-65 Field Jacket allows for cooler fall and spring weather wear, but a button-in quilted lining can be added to survive the cold winter months. The M65 Field Jacket is optimal for any environment and has created a timeless trend that doesn’t seem to be fading out anytime soon.

From Vintage to Tactical M-65’s, Rothco offers any Style, Color or Camo Pattern you need this fall.

  • Rothco Camo M-65 Field Jacket: One of the most popular Filed Jackets used by the U.S. Military. This jacket comes in 6 different Camo Patterns!
  • Rothco M-65 Field Jacket: A classic piece of military outerwear with a removable button-in liner, perfect for fall and winter weather!
  • Rothco Vintage M-65 Field Jacket: Nothing says vintage military clothing like an M65 Jacket! This M65 will keep you up to date with this fall’s trend of army inspired looks. 
  • Rothco Vintage Lightweight M-65 Jacket: This lightweight jacket is the perfect transitional piece from summer to fall with the temperature starting to cool off. 
  • Rothco Soft Shell Tactical M-65 field Jacket: This jacket combines elements of two great military jackets into one; the jacket features the style of the classic M65 with an updated tactical soft shell fabric.
  • Rothco M-65 Storm Jacket: The M65 Storm Jacket offers the classic M-65 style, but with added wet weather protection for those rainy and snowy days.

Rothco's Expanded Thin Blue Line Collection

The Thin Blue Line.... No doubt you've seen the symbol somewhere; on Facebook, on the back of a truck, a shirt, on a flag. The symbol is associated with support for the law enforcement as the police are the blue line that separates the two sides, civilians and criminals. Some may believe that this symbol was recently created, given the recent socioracial turmoil in the United States, but the symbol has been around at least since 1965 (when William Friedkin made a documentary on the police force) and actually originated in the United Kingdom, not the United States. There are also many other, less known, thin lines associated with other branches of public safety personnel; Thin Red Line for firefighters, Thin Orange Line for search and rescue, and Thin White Line for EMS, to name a few.

In light of the recent popularity for Thin Blue Line Gear, Rothco is expanding upon our existing line. Take a look at some of the latest and upcoming items:

  1. Rothco Thin Blue Line T-Shirt (coming this September)

5 Items to Prepare for Hurricane Season

The first big hurricane of the season, Hurricane Hermine, is here. Hopefully everyone is prepared to face her but she won't be the last of the season so make sure you're prepared for this and every storm to come. We've put together a small list of items you should have on hand in case of a hurricane:

1. Sandbags - if you're close to the shore (and sometimes even if you're not) flooding becomes a major issue during a hurricane. Stack up some sandbags to keep the water out.

2. Emergency Lighting - you can't always count on the power staying on in a storm but you'll need light that can be powered by something other than a plug. Some people prefer old fashion candles or kerosene lanterns, but we recommend some hand crank flashlights and lanterns.

3. Solar/Wind Up Radio - as was mentioned, you can't count on the power staying up but you'll want to be able to keep up with any emergency broadcasts that may be going out. With a solar powered or wind up powered radio, you'll be assured you won't miss out on any vital information.

4. First Aid Kit - hopefully you'll never need to use it, but better safe than sorry.

5. Go-Bag/Tactical Pack - the items above are things you'll want to have around the house in case of an emergency but you should have a go-bag ready as well in case you need to move out. Pack it out with emergency food, blankets, ponchos, can openers, and more, just in case you're forced to relocate and can't bring the comforts of home with you.
