    This just arrived from MitchellsAdventure website. The description on the website: "Found amongst a stock lot of M-65 jackets surplused by the Australian Army. These jackets were in a carton simply marked "TRIAL WINTER PATTERN". The jackets do not have any other tags or markings except the size tag in the neck."

    Does anyone have any other info about this? Thanks Very Happy

    A few more pictures, I'm not familiar with M65 jackets so I'm wondering what the foldable triangular part of the cuff is supposed to be/used for

    100% bullshit. Just a marketing ploy - not used by the Australian military in any capacity. I think the fold-out part of the sleeve is just extra protection for the back of the hands in inclement weather.

    The lack of infos about this piece seemed very suspicious... Thanks!

    I remember seeing these in Disposal stores in the early 1990s.

    Labeled UAE or Bahrain or something like that.
