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.

• Authentic wool knit cuffs are warm, but supremely comfortable and flexible

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.

A2 leather flight jacket
I purchased this jacket for my father in laws 80th birthday in a regular, and it fit him perfectly (needs to lose a few pounds) and looked great on him. The quality seemed to be lacking compared to mine that I.purchased several years ago, but the value,for money was there and he really was quite happy with it. Regarding durability and reliability,,I can't really comment since it is brand new.

A2 LeatherJacket | 11/23/2012
 
Pros:
Nice leather, lots of pockets
Cons:
Runs one size large, if you wear a LARGE order a MEDIUM

First jacket was too big and had an ugly pucker where the waistband was sewn to the leather. Sent it back at my expense, awaiting a size MEDIUM replacement.

Pros:
Leather soft and lightweight for Florida Weather. We have already done gift exchange. Son loved this jacket! His Seven year old daughter commented that they thought he was going to wear it to bed! Embroidered patch itself was nice.
Cons:
Not crazy about the 'velcro attachment' of patch. I thought it would be sewn on.

Excellent delivery and product overall. Have always been satisfied with Sporty's professionalism. Son is pilot for Marion County Sheriff's Department-Flies predominantly helicopters.

Not Recommended


Cons:
This was jacket was no where near the quality of the A-2 jacket my husband previously received from Sporty's. The prior jacket was made in the USA from higher quailty leather.Also, this jacket had slight design differences (i.e., pocket) which made it look inexpensive. We were disappointed in this item and returned it.
