Details

During World War II, maps were often sewn in to the lining of the A-2 flight jackets in case the pilots were shot down over enemy territory. This is a reproduction of the historical WWII flight jackets, originally issued in 1931 and then worn by the allied pilots who flew perilous missions over wartime terrain, and the lining features a re-creation of the survival maps of southern France. A surface of vintage French lamb leather adds to the authenticity. Features include some of the customizations that pilots preferred, such as the wind flap, front zipper with storm flap, hidden snap-down collar points, knit cuffs and waistband, and flap-top and side-entry pockets.

"Best jacket Ive ever had"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I just bought my 4th copy of this jacket over the past 30 years. It is the best and warmest winter jacket Ive had. My only complaint has been that the lining will start shredding over time. But even with that, I had my last one for at least 7 years before buying this one.

"Perfect for Women of Aventure!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Even though this was a mens jacket, I requested it as a holiday gift. Got a large to start out with, and it was too big. With every companys sizing being different, its hard some times to pick whats gonna fit correctly. No matter, Novice as always, handled it with great customer service and I got a medium. LOVE! Its awesome for traveling or anytime you need pockets.And the sleeves come off in case you just want a pocketed vest. So great!

"Fun and practical mens hiking vest"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

My husband loves to have everything he needs close at hand. This vest fits the bill when were hiking in the mountains, or just in a nearby park for the day. Lots of functional pockets to carry everything from his GPS and bug spray, sunscreen, water and snacks. And a flashlight. Because, you never know WHAT you will need when youre out for the day.
