  • Authentic wool knit cuffs are warm, but supremely comfortable and flexible
  • Double-entry pockets: side handwarmer slots plus snap-top storage pockets

  • All Taylor's Leatherwear jackets are guaranteed for 5 years: Taylor's Leatherwear warrants to the original owner that the garment will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for five years. If defective you may return it to us for replacement or repair. Taylor's will also, however, stand behind their products for the life of your leather jacket. If it becomes defective, ever, and we feel it should not have, send it back to us and we will repair it at no charge.
  • Repairs that are due to normal wear and tear or accident will be fixed, cleaned, and refinished at standard charges in place at the time of service - but only Taylor's Leatherwear brand jackets will be serviced.

The jacket is of good quality. It is comparable to the ones I lost in the fires this summer in Northern California. The fit is good, except for the shoulders where it is much too full. I am a tall man and need a 44 long, not a 44/46. Will wear it for many years to come, I am sure. It is just too big across the shoulders, and looks slightly sloppy compared to the Air Force reissue of 20 or so years ago. I would recommend this jacket to anyone who asks about it.

Classic Leather Flight Jacket
My 1988 USAF-issued A-2 jacket's collar finally wore out after 29 years of use on active duty and post-retirement civilian flying. 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!!

Classic leather bomber jacket
When 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.

My 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.
