Overview

The MA-1 Flight Jacket Vintage Edition features a satin twill weave exterior shell that matches the satin found in traditional MA-1 bomber jackets.

With the introduction of jet aircraft in the late 1940s aviators began to fly at higher altitudes and in colder temperatures, precipitating a demand for a new type of flight jacket. 

This eventually evolved into the MA-1 jacket. Building on this legacy of functional design and iconic styling, we reimagined this classic style for 21st century missions in and out of the cockpit.

*Please note that some of the lifestyle shots feature a tan zipper on the sleeve. The final production version will feature a Combat color matched zipper as seen in the main studio shot.*

Flight Pocket

Flight Pocket

An evolved array of storage options on the left bicep keep critical tools close at hand.

Aviator-style glasses stash neatly into a protective full length pocket, while pens, tire gauges, and other tools all have dedicated slots.

A vertically zippered pocket provides secure storage and ready access to electronics or identification cards.

Functional Comfort
