Wwii Pilot Jacket

Leather A-2 Flight Jacket
Leather A-2 Flight Jacket
(Based on 15 reviews)

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.
Available sizes: Medium, Large, XLarge, XXLarge

(Based on 3 reviews)

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 epaulettes–which would have reduced wear from cockpit straps. Rib-knit wrists and hem.

Shearling Collar Down Bomber Jacket

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.
