Men's Bomber MA-1 Fighter Pilot Jacket Military Army USAF Air Force
MA-1 Fighter Pilot Jacket (Army Green)
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.
The design of this flight jacket conveys positive image of strength, power and quality.
