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: Initial thought of the coat was very nice. It even smelled like goat(must have been "hot off the press"). Elastic waist band snugs the coat up at the wrists and waist while the coat itself still remains comfortable. Quality of the leather is really nice, and it has the epaulet holders on the shoulders to give it that authentic "pilot" look. Pen holders are convenient (I use one for the arm on my sunglasses) and a a larger pocket for other things. Name patch looks good and the embroidery came out professional. Even if you don't wear the patch the Velcro is still there and gives it more of an aviator look over normal leather coats. Cons: Only thing I could see improving on is the hand warmer pockets. They seem to be a little too far to the side. It feels as if your hands are on your waist as opposed to other coats where they're a little in front. Awesome coat overall.

Pros: Roomy with good articulation gussets under arms; it's much better than the Avirex reproduction A-2 I've had since 1991. Inside pockets with pen holders are useful. Lining is good, jacket slides on/off easily. Cons: not much, if any I really like this jacket!

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.
