It was USAF's first reintroduction of the old WWII originals and wanting in many ways. I finally broke down and ordered this one from Sporty's and it's now my favorite; heavier than the goatskin issue, loaded with "comfy-goodies," it'll probably outlast me!!March 10, 2018Purchased
1 year agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesClassic leather bomber jacketWhen I received my jacket I couldn't believe the quality of everything about it. I am a retired Air Force pilot and this jacket is far nicer than the one the USAF gave me ( which I still have but unfortunately it seems to have shrunk over the years). The quality of the material for the cuffs for example, is far better and it has some features I wish my original A-2 had like slash pockets, a bigger inner pocket, and holders for pens. It is also surprisingly warm (it's much heavier than my original). I rate it 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quality leather jacket.February 15, 2018Purchased
2 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesMy husband loves this jacket!I bought this jacket for my husband for Christmas last year. He previously had one similar to this one years ago but it was lost. He loves this jacket and it looks very stylish on him as well. It looks very nice and good quality. I read the reviews and sized up 1 size. It fits perfect. I think it is well worth $250.January 31, 2018Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesOutstanding QualitySadly, I outgrew my original A-2 and it took several years to admit that I just wasn't going to be my slim, trim self again. Since I'm more mature in attitude and shape, and low and behold, Sporty sells in size large, I ordered that very one. Two days later I was the proud owner of a genuine Sporty's A-2 leather jacket I give it 5 stars in every respect. Check the Internet and you'll find the cost is much higher and the quality is suspect. It just feels grand to wear!January 23, 2018Purchased

3 months agoValue5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesAlthough it is much too soon to rate the durability/reliability/performance of this jacket, I will say that the sale price made it a very good value for what appears to be a high quality bomber jacket.December 17, 2017Purchased

I simply could not believe you got it here in two days, even with the embroidery.January 1, 2017Durability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Better than expectedPriced 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.December 30, 2016
