The British Royal Air Force General Purpose Jacket is an incredibly well made jacket. This light weight general purpose jacket resembles standard flight jackets that have been used for decades in the Royal Air Force. With features that are very familiar to civilian jackets like the use of elastic cuffs and waistband you will find the RAF General Purpose Jacket to be very comfortable and wearable.

Very nice and well-made, but the cut is odd. The problem is the arm holes, upper arms, and upper back are significantly smaller than typical U.S. jackets. This problem is not restricted to a single jacket or size; I ordered all available sizes, and all are cut the same way. Even the largest size is still quite restrictive. A minor reminder for U.S. customers: the zipper is Euro-style ("backward" for men, "normal" for women)
These are ideal for small-framed folks. Those with large chests and/or upper arms will be happier with something else.
