M-65 Field Jacket in authentic GOLD TIGER PATTERN camo

Issued in 1965 and widely used by all areas of the US Military during the Vietnam War, the M-65 jacket became useful for troops serving in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam, keeping a soldier warm from the cool weather conditions that came after monsoonal rains. Although officially issued only in olive green shade 107, Tiger Pattern versions were locally made or procured by various US Special Forces outfits.

Originally pioneered by VNMC (Vietnamese Marine Corps) in the early 1960s, Tiger Stripe pattern camouflage was soon adopted by US Special Forces and SOG / LRRP teams. Tiger Stripe garments were locally procured and not issued by the US Military, they were available in a number of different patterns during the course of the Vietnam War including ADS (Advisor Sparse), JWD (John Wayne Dense), VMS (VNMC Sparse) and LSR (Late war, sparse, reversed pattern). The 'gold' refers to the distinctive golden fade the camo takes on after a period of wear in the jungle.
