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.

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.

Better than expected
Priced very well & the jacket is better quality than expected so it's a double bonus. Only suggestion would be for the interior lining to be made better-using better quality material, it's very thin and feels close to ripping-jckt was just purchased for Christmas 2016.

Decent Jacket For The Price
As others have noted, this is a good jacket but not the quality of another that I'd purchased elsewhere. After 20 years of wear, I had to replace it and finally settled on this Sporty's model. My only real quibbles are: 1) The rib knit cuffs and and waist are already beginning to pill, and the cuffs are also pretty thin; 2) there are permanent creases in the leather, probably from having been boxed for quite some time before shipment. All in all, I wouldn't purchase again.

Jacket makes me feel like a fighter pilot.
Just received the jacket and haven't had a chance to wear it. Fits well and looks great. Appears to be high quality. Don't know yet about durability. Can't wait for colder weather.
