"Well done to all at Fishtail Parkas!"

"I gave you a pretty tough challenge and you came up trumps!I called with the order on Thursday pm requesting delivery for Tuesday am - just to make it interesting you had to also complete the real fur switch!!

Well you completed your mission perfectly as the coat arrived about 9.30 am on Tuesday.

Top job & a top PARKA - I couldn't have asked for more!"

Nigel Dibbo UK

"Fantastic looking piece of kit"

"Just a quick email to say a big Thankyou for getting the parka here so quickly for a birthday present, after chatting on the phone. Fantastic looking piece of kit and a brilliant service from you.! Well done and thanks again, he's going to be well chuffed."

All the best,
Rob Holgate UK

Received my M-1951 Parka today.It fits perfectly for my requirements, i.e. to wear it over my business suit, to commute to work on my Scoot, just as we discussed and you promised.

It was more than I wanted to pay originally, but for a piece of history, born around the same time as me, it is worth every penny, and indeed more, (which I never ever admit)

Putting it on transports me to a different time and place, the fondly remembered past, recapturing some of my happy adolescent memories.

My wife will kill me for spending our hard earned, but , I can tell you, it is worth it. "Brilliant"


Duncan Moffat UK
"Hi Fishtail Parkas"

Just to let you know I received my parka just before lunch.

I am absolutely thrilled to bits with it....its all your advert said it would be.

I've made a comment on my Facebook wall about how pleased I am

I have a brand new Vespa LX50 in red with the full chrome kit fitted so the parka is gonna look really ace against the red (o:

Once again thanks very much

M1965 Fishtail Parkas: M65 Parka, M1965 Parka

The Classic M65 Fishtail Parka: US Army Parka, Fishtail Parka

When looking for a genuine US Army fishtail parka without the M-51 price tag, the M-65 parka with prices starting at only £147 is the one for you. All our M-65's are in new condition, original and come with ALL 3 parts, Parka Shell, Parka Liner and Parka hood.

100% genuine US MIL issue extreme cold weather fishtail parka. The M-65 parka comes complete with removable fur ruff hood and winter lining.

Also Available in Custom Made XS Size for smaller framed guys and girls, see full size chart below for exact measurements on all sizes. Our smallest cutdowns which are suitable for customers with a chest measurement from 32 to 36 inches are shown on the mini / women's parka page.


The M-1965 is an excellent Fishtail Parka, its both warmer and lighter than the M-1951 and will last you for years. The only criticised aspect of the M-65 parka from a "mod" point of view, was the white synthetic fur on the hood. For looks, its simply not the best....and over time, mattes up terrible.

The very first models of M-65 had wolf fur hoods like the M-51 however, due to cost these were dropped almost immediately in favor of the cheaper white synthetic fur.

Therefore, as mod is indeed all about the originality and the right look, we also offer the M-65 with custom re-trimmed real fur hoods to give the M-65 back its vintage look. The M-65 with Real Fur hood is indeed the very best thing next to an original M-1951 and from only 247, its a steal!!


We use pristine brand new raccoon fur to trim our parka hoods which is of the highest quality. The fur is thick, dense and really full. The hoods look incredible and really transform the parka.

Choose Width Of Fur Trim

As standard the fur trim width is 1.5 inches. You can if you wish add an extra inch in width for £50. We understand that big fur is currently very fashionable and that some customers would prefer their hood to have what we term 'massive fur' :) The photo below is the standard 1.5 inch fur trim so you get the idea of just how big a 2.5 inch width of fur would look. The prices on the payment buttons are automatically set for a 1.5 inch fur strip. Please email us if you would like to add the extra inch for an additional £50 at fishtailparkas@outlook.com

Please see our Hood Website Page for full details prior to ordering.

M65 / M1965 Fishtail Parka Sizing Guide

If you read the size chart below you will be able to easily choose the right size for you.

How ??....easy, I recommend a tape measure and taking your measurements first, i.e. chest, measure around under your arms, arm length from shoulder to wrist cuff, and for length, simply check length of parka then run the measure from ur neck line down....

Then, check your measurements against the size chart and you can find your best fit...

For chest size, you want 6-8 inches spare..so if your chest measures exactly 34 inches, you want a 40" chest parka. For arm length you want an extra 2-3 inches for movement, i.e. riding your scooter.


Size Chest Length, Collar to end of fishtail Arm, Shoulder seam to end of cuff
M65 X Small 44" (112cm) 40" (102cm) 25" (63.5cm)
M65 Small 50" (127cm) 40" (102cm) 25" (63.5cm)
M65 Medium 56" (142cm) 42" (107cm) 26" (66cm)
M65 Large 58" (147cm) 42" (107cm) 27" (68.5cm)
M65 X Large 60" (152.5cm) 43" (109cm) 27" (68.5cm)

100% genuine US MIL issue extreme cold weather fishtail parka. The M-65 parka comes complete with removable fur ruff hood and winter lining.

NEW IN!!! We now have our very own M65 hoods available to buy. If you do not like the nasty cheap white synthetic fur and you do not wish to wear real fur then simply buy an M65 with a faux fur hood. These are far better than the white synthetic fur option and at only 30 they are not too expensive. Choose your size parka complete with our very own faux fur hood. Hoods can be purchased separately by visiting the Real Fur & Faux Fur Hood page.

Merci encore et bonne continuation a vous

Fabien Granados, France

"Absolutely Fantastic"

Just got the parka. It’s absolutely fantastic, the wolf trim looks great and I can’t wait to go for a ride on the vespa!"


Alex Milton UK
"Fast and Reliable Service"

"Thanks for a fast and reliable service. My parka (with wolf fur hood) arrived safe and sound and looks great. Also, your recommendations on sizing were spot on - the small is definitely large enough! I can't wait for the cold weather to arrive.

David Thackery, Australia

"Thrilled, Spectacular, Awesome"

"Thank you for all your help with finding me an original M-1951 Parka. The package arrived today much sooner than expected (only took three days to cross the pond). When I opened the box, I was thrilled. As describe, the parka and liner were in near un issued condition. In fact, they were spectacular! The Wolf fur on the detachable hood is awesome and really adds character to the parka. Please tell your refurbished they did one heck of a job. Finally, the advice you gave me regarding sizing was spot on and the parka fits exactly as desired."

Scott, Connecticut, USA

"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy the parka. Size is perfect. The condition of it is excellent - new and old at the same time.

I have practically not left the house without it since I received it in December. It is both smart and practical (the weather in Denmark have been very snowy and cold) and I really enjoy the hood with fur (my first parka came without fur and hood liner). Definetely my best x-mas present in years."


Henrik Meyer
