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).
Comments about Pacific Theater A-2 Cotton Bomber Jacket:
For such a nice jacket that I like to wear I have to fight every time I put it on with the zipper. I have never had clothing before with a zipper that is difficult to pull up. It catches on itself at least three times every time I pull it up, but not in the same place.
From National Geographic:Thank you for sharing your comments. We regret you have had trouble with the zipper. Our customer service department is following up.
