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.


Not available for shipment outside of the U.S.


Imported. Men’s sizes M (38-40), L (42-44), XL (46-48), XXL (50-52). Weighs 5.2 lbs.


This jacket has a generous fit and you may prefer to order a size down if you are between sizes.


Professional leather clean only.

When I opened the box I was not xpecting much at all. As I have bought several SCHOTT jackets in the past.All were MADE IN THE USA..And were a poor quality product .With little attention to detail.
But I WAS SUPRISED> THIS SCHOTT jacket was a HOME RUN. TO bad it had to come from CHINA to be this good. The leather is quality Lamb and first rate. Very soft but with a hefty feel.Unlike GOAT which is lightin feel and weight this Lamb had a more substantial feel to it and weights maybe a pound more than a same product in GOAT would. Its also lined and has some insulation in it. I like the jacket a lot. Small concern though, The top sewing in the cargo pocket area where the flap folds over the pocket. The stitching was a tad loose. May come loose in a short ammount of time. But as I am a very detail oriented and quality person.I see this Schott jacket as a great purchase. Just dont look to Schott to make a quality product with the USA label on it. I tried 3 times and was dissapointed all three times. But I now own two of there made in China flight jackets including this one from NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC... And find them excellent. I believe you will not be dissapointed. Im and Large tall in sizing. But ordered an XL .I like a bit of more room. Dont much care for the confinment of the miltary sizing. So if your a true Xl this should work...NO reference this is a SCHOTT jacket.And a SCHOTT product it say so on the label...And thats true...Greg

I really was disappointed that an American classic was made in China! The inside label brags that they have been making these in NJ for 95 years and goes about how this in an authentic version of the jacket (even though it is unauthentically made in China). Many of the names on the inside map are incorrectly spelt, yet I assume that the authentic version had the correct names. Lastly, the little leather hook used to hang the jacket broke the first day it was hung.

Comments about Leather A-2 Flight Jacket:

I received this jacket from my inlaws in 2002. Man, it was awesome, so good looking and wonderfully comfortable. I wore it daily while i lived in Korea and then when I returned to the U.S. When you put it on, it's just like wrapping a big ol' quilt around you, warm and comforting and heavy.

The only down sides are that the liner ripped pretty badly after a few years of wear. And the leather on the right sleeve (under my wrist) wore out entirely and looked awful. After that, I put the jacket away, hoping to get it fixed one day, but worried it would cost a fortune to get that leather fixed.

But clearly, unlike any other coat I've ever owned, it was worth keeping until I could afford to get it fixed instead of tossing or donating it.

PS - I finally took it to be repaired a month ago. Still waiting and hoping they can fix that sleeve. The liner shouldn't be too hard to fix.

Comments about Leather A-2 Flight Jacket:

I use this jacket on my daily flight. The front pockets allow me to keep my lights and sunglasses. The jacket is awesome in every way except the leather is very thin. I get in and out of the plane a lot and already have a few tears. Because of the thin leather I have to be careful and handle with care. The stitches on the zipper came off after a couple of wears but I managed to get a local dry cleaner shop to stich it up.

    Comments about Leather A-2 Flight Jacket:

    Loved this jacket in every way except it was too big and had to be returned. Most "M" sizes fit me quite well, but for this jacket I needed an "S" and NG don't offer it in "S".

    Best feature: the cut is generous under the arms which makes it comfortable for driving.

    Not so great feature: the lining is a bit showy for me (but I'd happily get used to it if the jacket fit).
