    ok,I will tell you what I know (think I know).Its old,and had the hell used out of it.The zippers are aluminum which I have not seen befor.Who ever had it was a private.On the left shoulder is a worn out stripe.Has all the buttons but all the velcro was hanging by a thread.I traded my friend some magic cards for it.Was this made in country?The tag says large but it fits like a small.

    Also it has a strange M51 like hood.Every other M65 I have seen has that littel hood.Is this even vietnam era?

    The hood is from the M-43 Jacket. The Jacket itself looks like a commercial, the zipper is wrong.. But wait for others to say:)

    This indicates that it might be Thai or some other Asian country manufacturer (Philippines, Korea, Taiwan etc.) ... all of which had cottage industries turning out US type military garments.

    I'd need better pictures to tell for sure. The aluminum zipper is propper for early Vietnam era M-65's. All the ones I checked were CONMAR tho. Some early M-65's and late M51's were sized Small, Medium, and Large.
