Details

The original designation for the U.S. Type A-2 flight jacket, as listed in the U.S. Army Air Forces' Class 13 catalog, was "Jacket, Flying, Type A-2" and was described as being constructed of "seal brown horsehide leather, knitted wrists and waistband." Each also included a number of distinguishing characteristics, each of which has been reproduced for the U.S. Type A-2 flight jacket available today.

Each brand new U.S. Type A-2 flight jacket is constructed from genuine leather and carries a worn look. Like the original, it utilizes a lightweight cotton lining as well as all of the other aforementioned distinguishing characteristics, including dual snap-flap pockets, a snap-down collar, rib-knit cuffs and waistband, shoulder epaulets, a concealed full-zip front and a back that has been constructed from a single piece of leather. When it comes to reproductions, it does not get much better than our U.S. Type A-2 flight jackets.

As with the originals, our U.S. Type A-2 flight jackets use a sizing system that is notably smaller than that of yesteryear. Whereas modern jackets typically fit loosely, original and reproduction U.S. Type A-2 flight jackets were designed for a slimmer fit, which was designed to fit thinner pilots during WWII. As such, we strongly recommend that you consider ordering at least one size larger than you would traditionally wear to ensure an appropriate fit. Sizes currently available include: small (S), medium (M), large (L), extra-large (XL), double extra-large (XXL) and triple extra-large (XXXL).
