Men's Bomber MA-1 Flight Pilot Jacket Marine Blue
MA-1 Flight Pilot Jacket (Marine One Blue)
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 Military Spec 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.

I was thinking long time to buy such as expensive nylon jacket but after a while just ordered it. AMAZUNG QUALITY. Look alike real 5 stars product,cannot really say anything bad about it. Quality, outlook, amazing very happy with it, felt a bit long in the arms, but still ok. Usually wear an “L” size I ordered an “M” but still feel a bit long in arms,just a cm maybe. The whole jacket is 10 out of 5. Really amazing quality. (London, UK)

Have searched for quite some time for a replacement for my MA-1, This jacket is the real deal! Thank you Lessy Aviator for a most excellent pilot jacket. Great international orange inner shell improves visibility to rescue personnel when the jacket is reversed. Thanks Lessy Aviator, good job! (Madrid, Spain)
