Rugged design specifically made for pilots

This new jacket is essential equipment for your next adventure, whether you’re flying seaplanes in Alaska or splitting wood in your back yard. Its rugged exterior blocks out wind and rain, and can stand up to almost any abuse. But the Bush Pilot jacket is as comfortable on the inside as it is tough on the outside, with a quilted body lining and Sherpa accents to keep you warm. It’s the bomber jacket for the modern pilot.

Pilot-specific features:
• Pleated bi-swing action back makes it easy to move your arms in the cockpit without restriction
• Sherpa accents on collar and cuffs, reminiscent of WWII bomber jackets, keep you warm during cold pre-flights
• Two hand-warmer front pockets, lined in Sherpa for extra warmth and comfort
• Zippered chest pocket is perfect for storing sunglasses or displaying your ramp ID
• Quilted lining adds warmth but the low friction finish won’t grab your shirt, so it’s easy on and off
• Adjustable snap side tabs give you more room to breathe when seated, perfect for long flights
• Large cuffs easily accommodate oversized pilot watches or gloves
• Three inside chest pockets organize your cell phone and small accessories

Long-lasting construction:
• Super duty 12 oz. cotton duck fabric is water resistant
• Heavy-duty brass front zipper with pull tab
• Double-needle stitched main seams
• Pleated elbows
• Hanging loop inside
• Leather Flight Outfitters patch on front

Sizing Chart (chest sizes):
Small: 36-38
Medium: 40-42
Large: 44-46
XLarge: 48-50
XXL: 52-54

When in doubt, order a size smaller.  These jackets have a relaxed fit with some room to spare. 

Available in sizes SM-XXL. Imported.

It is a keeper!
The fit of the XL was fine for my upper body fine but a little tight for my abdomen (due to surgeries) but has seemed to have stretched a little and is fine now. The physical weight is heavy but I don't notice that when wearing it. The jacket is a little bulky when moving in close quarters but seems to be "wearing in" some with use. It has been below freezing here with snow & wind. The jacket kept me warm while working outside. The sleeve ends did not impede the wearing of gloves. As stated previously the snaps on the bottom edge are weak but that does not bother me. The only thing I modified was to place a short loop strip on the Velcro fasteners as they are very strong and a bother if you have to use the inside pocket a lot. I also discovered a very small slit to the right (of the jacket as you wear it) of the inside pocket. Just perfect for a pencil/pen or something else similar. Plenty of sewn in tags to explain everything about the jacket. I did not give a 5 for Durability & Reliability as I have only had the jacket a week. It is a keeper!

Great jacket but.......
It's a great jacket but would not buy again. I live in very cold winter climate and 2 features of the jacket are missing.
1. It's short above the waist - creeps up your back and leaves your kidney area exposed and cold, even sitting in the plane flying u can feel the cold of the seat coming through this area.
2. It's heavy and wearing long period of time starts to feel heavier. There are alot of modern materials today lightweight providing excellent thermal properties.

Trying to love the jacket, but the weight and cold in mid-section region are not loving it.

Excellent
It’s great. I am 5’5” somewhere between fit/average build. Purchased the Medium size and it is very comfortable. Not too lose, definitely not tight. Can wear a sweater if needed and be a able to move. As for durability and reliability I cant answer that yet, but it seems to be built to last.

Solid jacket
Great warm jacket. Color is similar to pictures. Could be a few shades darker but still looks good. Quality is good. Pockets are lined with Sherpa and warm. I got a large and it fits well. I am usually between a large and extra large but based on reviews I got the large. I’m 5’10” 195 lbs. Keep in mind jacket length goes just below the belt line and not any lower (like more modern jackets). Overall I recommend it and am very happy with jacket.

Quality of Bush Pilot Jacket
I was afraid the sleeves would be too short or the quality of the Bush Pilot Jacket would be substandard. I bought it because I liked the design, it reminded me of my Dad's Naval Aviation Flying Summer Jacket which I have not been able to find. I wore his out when I was in my teens many years ago. What about Quality? Well I wasn't disappointed, the sleeves were long enough and the Quality was superburb. Sporty's continues to provide pilots with really good durable products!

What is chest size for M? Size for 5' 9 and 155 lbs?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Chest size for the jacket is 36-38 for Small, 40-42 for Medium, 44-46 for Large, 48-50 for XLarge.
I live and fly mostly in North Florida. Is the weight and thickness of the jacket appropriate for temperate winter climates (40-60 F degrees) or better suited for colder climates?
George C on Sep 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It would work in those climates - it's not super thick - but it will be more comfortable in the 40s than the 60s. It does have a lining so it's more than just an outer shell.
I’m always concerned about buying a jacket with out trying it on. I’m 6’2” and 185 lbs. What is your size recommendation. Return policy?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would suggest a Large. We do have a very easy 30-day return policy - just return it in the same condition in which it was received and we will refund or exchange it.
Do you have measurements for the sizes? ie - a large is 40 to 44 chest or something like that? Thank you
Glenn B on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's a full cut, so if anything it runs a bit large. A large is 44-46, XL is 48-50.
It probably doesn't come in "LONG" sizes for 37" sleeves does it?
Jerry L on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately not - these are not Long sizes.
Is it machine washable?
A shopper on Feb 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes
Are either inside or outside pocket large enough to carry an IPad (standard?)
A shopper on Dec 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, neither pocket is large enough.
Can I get this with custom embroidery?
John L on Nov 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do not offer custom embroidery for this item.
Any chance you'll ever stock a Long size in this or any other clothing you offer?
Richard P on Sep 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I will pass this to our product manager.
Are there women's sizes?
A shopper on Jan 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The sizes are men's. It is not manufactured in women's sizes.
I'm 5'9 and 150lbs female. I have boarder shoulders and prefer space to move my arms in a working jacket. Normally I would jump right to the men's medium because that's what I have in my Navy flight suit stuff. Would a medium be too large for an athletic woman? I also like to wear layers. I don't want a style jacket I want a working jacket. Any women out there with one?
Melissa A on Dec 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would think the medium would be the correct size. If you not you can always exchange it for a different size.
Is it fire resist?
A shopper on Dec 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is not listed as such by the manufacturer.
What size do you recommend for a young man 5’8” and 200lbs. He is not fat, simply strong build. I know large or extra large would be the general go to choice, but which size do you recommend based on the cut and fit of this jacket? Large or extra-large??
A shopper on Oct 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend a large.
What size do you recommend for a young man who is 5’8” and 200 lbs. ?
Dina M on Oct 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Either a large or extra large.
Does this jacket come in black?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, the jacket comes only in the color shown.
