This is the intermediate-weight jacket based on the MA-1 flight jacket worn by United States Air Force pilots during the Jet Age. Its water-repellent nylon exterior is an accurate period detail that marked the U.S. Air Force’s transition from bulkier, fleece-lined leather models to streamlined nylon models to accommodate pilots seated inside smaller, equipment-crammed jet aircraft cockpits. This jacket’s sage-green color authentically identifies it as a 2nd generation MA-1 (the earliest models were midnight blue)—the jacket transitioned into a camoflauge-friendly green shade better-suited for a downed airman’s Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE) efforts during the Korean War. This jacket retains the original’s highly visible orange lining (updated with polyester fiberfill) that assisted identification and rescue operations when reversed. With a knit ribbed collar, cuffs, and waistband made from an acrylic/lycra blend with two lower slash pockets covered by snap-down flaps. With two interior slash pockets. Brass zippered front with leather pull tabs and storm flaps. Sage or Black. Men’s chest sizes M (40-41), L (42-44), or XL (46). (1 lb.)

Place one end of the tape measure at the center of the fullest part your chest. Wrap it around your body (including shoulder blades), keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
Measure around your waist where your pants sit, keeping one finger between the tape and your body to ensure an accurate fit. Think of the tape as a belt for these purposes.
The easiest way to do this is to measure pants that fit you well. Lay them flat, with the front and back creased smooth. Measure along the inseam from crotch to bottom of leg hem.
Relax your arm at your side and slightly bend. Measure straight from your shoulder, down to where your cuff would be.
The easiest way to do this is to find a shirt with a collar that fits you well. Lay the collar flat. Measure from center of collar button to far end of opposite button hole.
HEAD (use for hats and caps)
Measure around the largest part of the head, with tape above brow. Keep the measuring tape around your head at the point at which your hat normally rides (approximately 1” above your ear).
HAND (use for gloves and mittens)
Measure all the way around the widest part of knuckles with your hand flat (excluding the thumb). The number of inches equals glove size.
