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).
Comments about Pacific Theater A-2 Cotton Bomber Jacket - Dark Brown Leather:
Had to return the large for an XL as it was just a little to tight thru the back with a sweater or sweatshirt. Return went very smoothly. Zipper is a little rough, but will probably smooth out with a little soap or lube.
