The Alpha Industries MA-1 Flight Jacket has been supplied to the US military for over four decades and is the world’s most popular flying jacket.
Its combination of toughness and flexibility is legendary, and it has easily made the crossover to civilian fashion where it is more commonly referred to as a bomber jacket and can be worn for many different occasions.
The MA-1 is a water-resistant, versatile and durable mid-weight nylon jacket that will serve the wearer well for many years. It was made for US Air Force pilots and crews but with its stylish appearance and knitted collar, cuffs and waistband it is now popular amongst civilians too.
Its storm flap and tough front zipper are ideal for winter conditions.
A design classic
The classic specifications of the original MA-1 Flight Jacket were laid down in the 1950s and revised during the 1960s. They include the ability to reverse the jacket so that its bright orange lining is outside, making it ideal for low-visibility conditions such as search and rescue missions.
The outer shell is 100% nylon, supported by a polyester and nylon flight lining for warmth, making the jacket both warm and comfortable whatever the temperature.
There is also a handy combination utility pocket on the sleeve, making this a versatile jacket for security staff, door personnel and for general wear.

Customer ReviewsWrite a review
Great materials used and feels solid and weighty compared to other cheaper bombers, the nylon used is of good quality and has a nice sheen to it in good lighting conditions, I'm 5'10 and 72kg medium fits good, the fit on them is good not like your wearing a sleeping bag the amount of insulation inside and the cut is just right hope this helps. Excellent service again from Military Kit big fan now, thank you.

Excellent service great jacket very pleased thanks.
Ordered on next day at got it on time, Xmas eve no less!
2XL in rep grey. I’m just under 6ft and 48 inch chest, so was not sure it would fit, it fits perfectly, I would call it true to size. I’m a Carharrt XL for reference.
The grey is a Dark steel grey almost olive, kind of boltgun grey.
Quality is good, I had read lots of reviews which were negative about the weight/thickness of the outer, it’s a little litter than past alphas I’ve had but still good. Lots of reviews talk about the arms being baggy, this must be skinny teenagers who have not filled out. I’ve worked construction and I could not take it any slimmer in the arms.
