First issued to the U.S. Army aviators in 1931 and worn by flight crews throughout World War II, the A-2 flight jacket was reissued by the U.S. Air Force in 1987. Made by Cockpit USA, the current supplier of leather jackets to the Air Force, this updated classic version has a rugged outer shell of French lambskin, characterized by its distressed leather appearance that displays its natural grain. The hefty jacket is cut for a generous fit and its poly-fiber fill provides cold-season comfort with a snap-down collar, epaulets, zip-up front with wind flap, two front cargo pockets (top and side entry), and knit wool cuffs and waistband. It also has a hidden pen pocket under the left pocket flap and two inside chest pockets. Underarm grommets provide ventilation. The nylon/acetate lining has two American flags embroidered across the back with a silk-screened message that says "The Nation Salutes You." Imported. Presented in our signature gift box. Men's sizes S (36), M (38-40), or L (40-42). (6 lbs.)
