Our Seaplane Pilots Association logo MA-1 flight jacket is a comfortable year-round jacket. Pilots find that this is a great jacket for cool to cold weather.
It comes in a navy blue exterior, and features the original orange reversible lining and internal pockets so you can wear them inside out or use them for hidden items. The outer shell is made of nylon water repellent fabric with thick poly fiberfill insulation. A zippered front closure with double pull tabs and storm flap offers additional protection from the elements. The MA-1 has a signature zippered utility pocket and pencil pockets on the left sleeve. There are hand pockets with a with snap closure flaps that also allow you more storage or for hand warming.
The Military MA-1 Bomber Flight Jacket was designed by the United States Air Force to be a more comfortable and less bulky pilot jacket than the leather flyer jacket they were using. The MA-1 Flight Jacket was first issued about 1949 to the Air Force, Navy pilots and their flight crews. The Bomber Jacket was made to be reversible with an orange lining so that down pilots could be seen. There are 2 inside hand pockets that were made to be used when you reverse the jacket to keep items safe. They make great storage pockets for everyday use. On the arm there is the signature flight jacket pencil/pen holder along with a small zipper pocket for a map or notes. We find this very useful and give the flight jacket its notable look.
Fit & Sizing
The classic fit is waist length and the jacket runs true to its classic size. some customers find them snug but they are meant to be worn fitted. The jacket has some loft to it. If you have very broad shoulders or need more space we find customers are sizing up.
