    Pros

    Inexpensive.

    Cons

    Terrible collar.
    Mediocre leather quality.
    Feels like a cheap knockoff.

    General Comments

    I bought this jacket in hopes that it could replace my grandfather's G-1 that was issued to him in the early 40's, as that jacket no longer fits me.

    In short, not even close. In comparing the two jackets side by side, the Sporty's jacket has the feel of a cheap knock-off rolex purchased in China Town. The only parts that are similar in quality are the wool cuffs and bottom. The leather grain is fine, although it is thinner than the original jacket making it feel unsubstantial by comparison.

    The leather is not necessarily a deal breaker; however, I am most disappointed in the supposedly "authentic mutton" collar of the Sporty's jacket. The collar on my grandpa's jacket is large, silky soft, and has a nice thick pile. The Sporty's jacket doesn't even feel like real wool, much less mutton fur. It's course, stiff, and short piled. Definitely not what I wan't rubbing my neck all day. And that, my friends, is a deal-breaker.

    Great price, but I suppose you get what you pay for. This jacket is being returned. :-(

    Very similar to what was issued to me in the Navy as an Aircrewman. The only thing that we did not have was the extra side pockets. I bought this as a gift for my flight instructor for teaching an old dog new tricks. He was pleasantly surprised.

    The jacket could use a little more insulation behind the lining for us guys living near the mountains in Colorado. Great jacket anyway

    God, what a great jacket this is. Not cheap. But I expect to wear it all my life, and then pass it on to my nephew, who will wear it all his life.

    Nicely done copy of the original.

    Cons

    Would have preferred the mouton collar, didn't know I had a choice there... had I to do over again I would go for that one.

    Next time spend the extra cash for the mouton collar.

    I chose the G-1 as a gift for my son. A big reason was my purchase years ago of an ANJ-3. I had a concern or two and Sporty's immediately made it right. Exceptional customer service!
