Standard issue for the US Air Force since the mid-1950s, the US Army MA1 Flight Jacket was built to withstand harsh conditions and has become a modern top-selling classic.

This faithful reproduction is an extremely versatile, mid-weight bomber jacket that is made from tough nylon and is water-repellent.

This style was the first of the military jackets to make the crossover into civilian fashion and is stylish as well as hard-wearing.

There are two slanted front pockets with flap and press-stud closure as well as 2 inner pockets and a handy utility/pen pocket on the sleeve.

With a strong main brass zip, knitted cuffs, waistband and collar, this flight jacket has a comfortable snug fit that helps to keep the rain and wind out.

The jacket is reversible to bright orange, so it’s ideal when in situations of limited visibility or for rescue missions.

This style of bomber jacket is a classic design, never really goes out of fashion and remains a timeless classic for its durability, practicality and style.

Love the jacket

Love the jacket well-made, worth every penny if I add two bodies outward order another one🤜🏻🤛🏻

Alex Forsyth
Warm, stylish and decent quality

I bought this jacket after deciding I wanted something in this style, and having been pleased with my orders from Military Kit in the past I decided to look here first. For the price I really can't argue, it seems sturdy and is certainly warm, and gives a good fit (I'm 180cm and average build and a Medium fits me very well). Apart from a couple of loose threads which I snipped off, my only (minor) complaint is that the hangar loop wasn't very well stitched and broke after a couple of weeks, but was easily re-sewn. The main zip is sturdy and heavy and the pockets have single snap fasteners for security, plus there's a small zip pocket on the left sleeve with a couple of pen holders. The fact it's reversible is handy as the pockets from the inner side function as inside pockets, adding more storage space. Plus if you want to be REALLY orange you can easily reverse the whole thing for a different look. If you're looking for the 'classic nylon bomber jacket' then for the cost you really can't argue.
