Men's Bomber MA-1 Flight Pilot Jacket Dark Black
MA-1 Flight Pilot Jacket (Dark Black)
Our unisex MA-1 has designed as an intermediate weight flight jacket for use all year. This is accomplished by manufacturing the jacket from very high quality flight nylon fabrics and polyester interlinings.
The lightweight nylon design allows the pilots and aircrew to wear the jacket open and be comfortable in warm weather. Upon entering the aircraft, the pilot can zip the jacket closed and be afforded ample protection against the cold conditions encountered in flight and offer the best protection and comfort than any other flight jacket.
This jacket is water/weather resistant and includes a knit collar, cuffs and waistband, as well as a heavy gauge brass zipper with storm flap for warmth. The jacket is reversible to survival fluorescent bright orange, making them ideal for rescue missions and other times when visibility is imperative.
In the 1970s this MA-1 jacket was used by U.S. Army helicopter pilots and aircrew in the Vietnam War and is known as the “Nylon Pilot’s Jacket”. This pilot jacket was the first military flight jacket to cross over into civilian fashion.
Our MA-1 is not only a pilot jacket, but also a canvas for your imagination, offering endless possibilities to you, the wearer, the pilot. A true classic, the MA-1 is made to last over time. Its flight nylon shell is both flexible yet robust, while its iconic survival fluorescent orange lining provides the comfort and warmth and weather- and stretch-resistance. Whatever you’re planning to do with it, it’s ready to fly.
The design of this flight jacket conveys positive image of strength, power and quality. But please, don’t get overexcited and try to fly an F-35. Okay? Thanks.
