Natural Duty - A Spring Essential by Denham

Denham are proud to present their variation of the M65 jacket, the DUTY. The M65 style has been part of us military livery for over 40 years. Originally introduced in 1965 to replace the M-1951 field jacket, it was used by soldiers during the Vietnam and Korean Wars and is still in official military service today.

The original M65 jacket was made from a water and wind resistant cotton-nylon fabric. This limited edition style was made using vintage Dutch Army ponchos.  The Dutch camouflage pattern is very close to the British and Denham elected to use this reclaimed fabric with its backside forward.  The ponchos had been treated with a water-resistant coating which had started to de-laminate, Denham's designers liked the visual character of this de-lamination so much, they flipped the fabric inside-out and built this edition of the Duty backwards.
