Authentic USAF Flight Jacket

This MA-1 Flight Jacket features a Vietnam Blood Chit sewn on the inside lining which contains a message in several languages identifying an airman as a US aviator and requesting help in avoiding capture and being returned safely to US forces. Manufactured to strict United States Air Force requirements, the MA-1 Jacket has a 100% nylon outer shell that reverses to high-visibility orange for use in adverse conditions. The MA-1 Jacket will keep you warm in colder months and comfortable in the spring and fall. Knit collar, waistband and cuffs add comfort while sealing off cold air. MA-1 Jacket has four welt-type slash pockets (two inside, two outside) with snap closures, combination pencil/cigarette pocket with zipper on sleeve and pencil point protectors. Featured on the heavy duty front zipper is a leather double-pull tab. Comes in sage green or black. In our experience, the MA-1 runs slightly small. If in doubt, please order the next larger size.

Slick Jacket
Silky. But it's really short. I guess when we have Chinese making our clothing they use their method of measurements? The overalls were to small too and we got a Large. I couldnt even get into them and them mens??

I'm 64 years old but its just like the one I had on active duty back in the 70's.
I wear a Large usually and followed Sporty's advice and order one size larger and the XL fits just fine.

Pros: Love the extras. The 'Remove before flight ' key ring was a nice touch. I still have my Viet Nam original but it's a bit small. This is like putting on an old friend.

What size for 6'2" 210 lb male?
Mladen K on Dec 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: At that height 210 lbs , he's a slim man compared to me. I'm 5'11" 250lb and a 2XL fits me great. I bought a 2XL because another answer said to order one size larger than you normally would buy. My Dad is shorter than me and weighs about 150. I ordered him an XL. That fits him well. I hope this is helpful.

My boyfriend really like this jacket. Because, it said that the jacket runs slightly small I order my boyfriend jacket as a large when he is usually a medium. When we got the jacket the arms of the large jacket was way to big. It could wrap around his around one more time. Does this mean if I get the medium size the arm width and length will change?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The arm Width and Length would be a little smaller.
Other than the addition of the blood chit and the $$, what’s the difference between this jacket and item #3395A?
John P on Dec 30, 2017

I am 6'4" and 220 pounds. Would I be better off with 2xl or xl? I would prefer the latter.
