Exclusively from Sporty’s

Over 80 years ago, the original A-2 was introduced by the USAAF as “standard issue.” Since then, it has become a cultural icon, worn by World War II aces and Hollywood stars alike. Our beautiful A-2 is crafted with the original Mil-Spec #A2-98 as our guide, but updated for today’s pilot. Imported.

Features:
• Semi-aniline leather is long-lasting and easy to clean, but retains a natural look
• Glove tanned brown goatskin is soft and flexible
• Oversized, #7 brass YKK zippers are easy to use, even with gloves
• Clean one-piece back for a classic fit
• Three-piece underarm gusset allows for easy arm movement in the cockpit
• Authentic wool knit cuffs are warm, but supremely comfortable and flexible
• Double-entry pockets: side handwarmer slots plus snap-top storage pockets
• Full cut pattern for a looser fit, but with tight-fitting waist to block wind
• Epaulet holders on each shoulder and snap-down leather collar

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.

Pros:
Sharp Looking, Seems well made.
owned for a month now...Very happy.
Cons:
None.

I purchased the flight Jacket for my son, first time buy.
My son of 16yrs old loves his flight jacket. My wife and I love the look.

>> Sizes: Fit is as marked!!!
I ordered the correct size as called for his size build...a small for my son who is at his correct weight/height ratio for his age.
>>> I ordered by his measurements and the Jacket fits him perfectly.

If your bigger then the normal average by ratio; having a larger waist...Then order the next size up.

Pros:
Looks like a million bucks.
Warm and comfortable.
Cons:
Tight around the waist - watch the doughnuts.

I had ordered a L but (too many doughnuts later) exchanged for an XL. I am 6 ft and weigh 210 lbs. It still fits tight around the waist but that is a motivator to keep my weight down.

I can't comment (yet) on durability but it looks and feel like excellent leather.

Got this Jacket for my husband for Christmas---He normally wears an Xlarge--this runs just a tad bit small--so we returned it, and got an XXlarge. He absolutely loves the jacket---good quality and appearance. Would recommend it to all.

Not Recommended

Pros:
Good Looking
Cons:
Does not fit as well as it looks. I am a large man and found that through the chest it fit large and around the waist it was too tight. The only way the jacket would fit the way it should would be to add 4 to 6 inches around the waist band.

Not Recommended

Pros:
In the product photo, the jacket looks reasonably authentic.
Cons:
Poor quality leather,very stiff and smells excessively of processing. Zippers and cuffs are of inferior quality. Sizes run very small and the online chart for such is misleading.

This product is not representative of Sporty's usual level of quality. It is obviously cheaply made by off shore workers in a country,(Pakistan), that openly supports enemies which are at war against the United States. To promote this product as being authentic Air Force issue is false and misleading. Sporty's has lost its way in pursuit of almighty profit and should be ashamed.
