Gerry, I have to say that once you posted that link, I was very tempted to order the olive M65 jacket.
It took so much self control - great price, good style and presumably solid construction given that they're affiliated with Ascot Chang.
If you're looking for an original m65 (military grade) for winter, I found this site in my web travels:
At about 120 a pop, seems like an affordable, usable option. They seem to carry jackets from Alpha Industries and other makers. Looking at their current website and customer feedback, current Alpha Industries jackets seem to suffer from poor construction (moved to China, and the zippers are crap apparently).
While debating the whole m65 affair with my inner voice since Christmas, I popped by North Face (TNF) today and unexpectedly picked up a "pro-shell" Goretex in bright green at ~50% off (Made in China however). Very very functional and will be using it for city commuting and for hikes, etc. Superlight and machine washable, plus I can pack/fold it into the size of a small thermos. In the grand scheme of Goretex wear, I guess TNF is not going to be as well made as something like Nanamica jackets, as promoted by GW and other bloggers. However, I think it meets my needs, and am looking forward to trialling it as summer days become more rainy and wet.
