About Sporty’s Jackets

During World War II, a leather flight jacket was more than just a part of the uniform. Comfortable, practical and stylish, it often became an aviator’s most prized possession. Over 20 years ago, we set out to find the modern successors to these famous jackets, ones that would be at home in the cockpit of a Cessna as much as a P-51.

We never found any that met our standards for comfort and quality, so we partnered with one of the leading leather garment companies in the US to make them ourselves. Each one of these handsome jackets is the perfect blend of authentic construction and modern style, with a fanatical attention to detail. They look great the moment you put them on, and will continue to be trusted flying companions for years to come. A fine leather jacket simply gets better with age.

The jacket is well made but it lacks one important item. The straps on the shoulders, where the epaulets are attached, do not have a "snap" to release one end from the jacket. In order to install epaulets, it was necessary to cut the seam, wrap it around the strap and then secure it with a small safety pin.

SPORTY'S CUSTOMER SERVICE RESPONSE
Thank you for the review. We have epaulets available that have Velcro on them. This makes it easy to attach to leather jackets that have sewn epaulets.

Great Jacket

Recommended

I'm 6'-2", 210lbs and ordered a Large Long 44-46. I wear a 43/44 sport coat and so this does feel a little roomy but a definite great fit. I wear it with my uniform on cold days and everyone thinks the cut looks great! The leather finish is amazing...sure a little stiff at first but I think it will wear well. The first week I got it it was pouring rain and I was hesitant to wear it on flights but hey, this is a working pilot's jacket and so off I did. Shed's water like no other jacket out there. Hung it up to dry in the FBO and went right back out in the stuff later in the day. Still looks brand new a month later. Only con so far is the epaulet straps are very long and attached on both ends so you can only use the velcro kind. Because they are so long the epaulets tend to slide around, pop up, etc and looks kinda hokey so I don't where my bars on my jacket. Surprised at the price for such a quality jacket. It is heavy! Even with the inner liner removed.

A quality jacket but not sized correctly at all.

Not Recommended

The jacket was easy to order and arrived quickly. However, the jacket is not sized correctly at all. I am a regular size and this jacket fits in the shoulders and arms but does not fill on the torso. It is too short in the torso. The elastic in the back makes the jacket pull up and above my belt. A long sized jacket would make the arms too long to wear.

Pros:
The jacket seemed to have sturdy construction.
Cons:
Very poor fit. It had a very strange cut that tapers more drastically from the shoulders to the waiste than is normal. It looked very odd when worn. Additionally the torso length was much shorter than normal. I never wear a "long", however, I had to send the jacket back because it was too short in the torso. The "long" fit better in the torso but the sleeves were too long. It just didn't work for me so I had to send it back.

Pros:
My husband loved it! Perfect fit. I had looked at other places for flight jackets, but none had the quality of this one. I can always count on Sporty's quality to be first rate.
Cons:
No cons!

Sporty's customer service is excellent. One of their reps called me to verify the embroidery on my husband's jacket to ensure that it was correct. Very nice!

Pros:
Wears well, looks good, pretty satisfied.
Cons:
One press stud broke at bottom of zip on waistband, epaulettes should be press stud one end, cuffs a bit tight to pull watch through to read.

I like it, so do all the company pilots (I'm Chief Pilot). We may consider them as uniform next winter (Australia).

Leather is originally stiff. Needs to be worn to break in and make a soft leather. It fits a little small.
