The A-2 leather bomber jacket is an icon of WWII U.S. Army pilots, who often decorated their jackets with squadron patches and artwork. Soldiers stationed in the Pacific theater needed a lightweight version for the tropical climate. Our reproduction has a 100% cotton twill body and lining with leather collar and shoulder epaulets–which would have reduced wear from cockpit straps. Rib-knit wrists and hem. Jacket has two two-way pockets on the front and one inside stash pocket on the interior lining.


Imported. Cotton body and lining with leather collar. Men's sizes M (38-40), L (42-44), XL (46-48), XXL (50–52).

      In 1921, American test pilot John A. Macready took his open-cockpit aircraft to the record-breaking altitude of 40,000 feet. The only thing between Macready and the atmosphere was his flight jacket, already a necessity for fliers in those early days of aviation. Inspired by the classic "bomber" jackets worn by American Air Force pilots in WWII, this down jacket with removable shearling collar keeps you warm and dry for adventures at any altitude.

      Mali, in western Africa, is the largest cotton producing country in Sub-Saharan Africa, and one of the world's poorest countries. But artisans—especially women cloth dyers—have helped make their culture's famous cotton cloth into a worldwide commodity, bringing much-needed income to this unstable nation.

      Inspired by the rugged work clothes worn by ranchers and opal miners in the Australian outback, this cotton canvas jacket will stand up to even the most adventurous travel. The double-weave cotton resists snags, and has a broken-in softness from day one. Six pockets allow plenty of room to securely carry all you need in town or on the trail.

      Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Jackets and Vests
      This authentic B-3 jacket became the military-issued cold-weather flight jacket in 1934, and it is still the warmest and most insulating bomber jacket made. Aviators in WWII bombers came to rely on their B-3 jackets as they often flew their missions over Europe in unpressurized cabins, where air temperatures could drop to more than 60 degrees below zero. Our B-3 is made from an amazingly soft and supple genuine sheepskin with a classic, aged look and deep-pile natural shearling along the body, sleeves, and collar. With double straps under the collar and straps at the waist that cinch to adjust the fit and keep out wind. Traditional leather welted seams and side-entry pockets are authentic details from the original. Made in U.S.A.

This adventure-ready cotton canvas jacket is inspired by gear worn by miners and ranchers in the vast Australian outback, and treated with an oilskin finish that makes water bead up and run right off. The 12-ounce cotton canvas resists snags and has a broken-in softness from day one. Adjustable back tabs at the waist help tailor the fit. Features a poly-filled cotton lining for warmth, with nylon-lined sleeves. Two lined hip pockets, two zippered chest pockets, and an inner security pocket provide safe space to stash your travel essentials.

      National Geographic performed an important service during World War II as we supplied maps to the Allies. Maps were often sewn in to the lining of the A-2 flight jackets in case the pilots were shot down over enemy territory. This is a reproduction of the historical WWII flight jackets, originally issued in 1931 and then worn by the allied pilots who flew perilous missions over wartime terrain, and the lining features a re-creation of the survival maps of southern France. A surface of vintage French lamb leather adds to the authenticity. Features include some of the customizations that pilots preferred, such as the wind flap, front zipper with storm flap, hidden snap-down collar points, knit cuffs and waistband, and flap-top and side-entry pockets. Imported.
