The Type A-2 leather flight jacket is one of the most classic and immediately recognizable articles of military clothing ever designed. It is most closely associated with World War II U.S. Air Force fighter pilots, who often decorated their jackets with squadron patches and elaborate artwork painted on the back.

With classic A-2 styling and a 100% antique lamb outer shell this jacket features:

  • Top and side entry front pockets
  • A hidden pen pocket
  • Underarm grommets for ventilation
  • Knit cuffs and waistband
  • Full zipper front under a wind flap
  • Two inside chest pockets
  • Snap down collar and leather epaulets with an all season poly fiber filling.
  • Exciting patriotic two flag embroidered and silk screened lining with other interior vintage accents.
  • Proudly made in the U.S.A.

If you are looking for a lighter weight version without the fiberfill insulation, suitable for all seasons and particularly perfect for warmer climates, the Cockpit "100 Mission" Leather A-2 Pilot Jacket might be the one for you.

The antique lambskin leather will further distress as you wear it to give you that desirable "battle-worn" look. Full cut for a slightly oversize fit.

An absolute treasure

  • By Papi from So. Cal. on Sunday, November 18, 2018
  • Pros: Fit, quality of raw materials and construction, solid and substantial
  • Review: I'm totally in love with this jacket. The quality of the leather, stitching and construction are all excellent. I get a positive comment just about every time I wear it in public and I can't wait for another opportunity to put it on. It fits like a glove and just slides into place like I've been wearing it for years even though it's only a few months old. The pattern in the lining is awesome and props to the American workers who assembled this work of art. One item though, this is a seriously built garment that weighs a lot. Even though the leather is supple it's also very substantial. After receiving it I would have paid twice the price!

He looks great and raves about the fit

  • By Kathleen from Fredericksburg VA USA on Saturday, May 05, 2018
  • Pros: Heavy, warm, generous fit
  • Review: We initially bought an XL but it was too big. This runs large. He's 6'2" and 230 lbs. and a L Tall fit well. It's heavy and appears like it will be durable. The process of exchanging was easy and we are very happy with the purchase .

Great quality, love it !!

  • By bradbg68@gmail.com from san antonio tx on Wednesday, February 07, 2018
  • Pros: It was good all over
  • Review: The quality was great, real heavy thick leather, great fit, felt just right. Probably the best A2 I've seen. Handwarmer pockets are big, lining keeps you warm; a real rugged item out of a movie.

Great Jacket

  • Review: Exceeded expectations. Thick leather, very heavy and warm.

Fantastic Jacket

  • By Donna from Parkersburg WV USA on Tuesday, January 02, 2018
  • Pros: Great fit, very heavy weight, completely happy with it.
  • Review: This jacket exceeded my expectations! It's much heavier than I thought it would be, making it perfect for the colder weather. I looked for years trying to find just the right one for my retired Air Force husband. He loves it and so do I. We couldn't be happier with our choice. Your service was fantastic and so is the jacket. I will be purchasing more products, thank you for making it easy to make my husband smile. You totally rock in every single step of my purchase.

14 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Previously Asked Questions

  • Friday, December 27, 2013

    Q: Is the back of the A-2 Leather Jacket plain without any type of insignia? I prefer the Jacket to be plain without patches or pictures and decorations of any kind.

    A: Yes, the outside of the jacket is just a solid brown leather on the front and back.  The only design is on the interior lining of the jacket.

  • Thursday, August 11, 2011

    Q: Is the A2 the same as the Averex jacket of 20 years ago. Same jacket just different manufacture?

    A: Avirex changed their name to Cockpit USA in the 1990's.  They have been making these A2 jackets since the early 1970's.

  • Wednesday, March 02, 2011

    Q: what would you suggest to treat the A-2 jacket with to protect it against water and stain

    A:

    Most leather really does not need a lot of upkeep UNLESS it gets totally soaked.  If you have a spot to clean, we recommend using a bit of Lexol or Mink Oil on the inside flap first to test as it will darken the leather usually.  If the jacket needs to be cleaned, take it to a dry cleaner with a leather specialist who understand that the antique lamb color will totally wear off if cleaned with any solvent.

  • Sunday, February 21, 2010

    Q: I am 6'4". Should I buy the Tall size?

    A:

    Yes, the manufacturer does recommend anyone over 6' 1" and less than 6' 6" order the tall style.

  • Saturday, February 13, 2010

    Q: Does the wind flap have snap closures at the collar and the waistband?

    A:

    The collar is secured in the down position using snaps, but it does not have snaps at the top or bottom of the zipper.  

  • Monday, November 23, 2009

    Q: Is the leather jacket waterproof or does it need to be treated

    A: The jacket is not waterproof.

  • Wednesday, October 14, 2009

    Q: What is the sleeve length for the L and XL

    A: Size L is 37" and Size XL is 37.5" on sleeve length.

  • Tuesday, September 01, 2009

    Q: "antique' indicates to me that the leather looks "used or older" which I find more desirable than a new look. Am I right?

    A: Yes, that is correct. The lambskin on this jacket is made to fatigue with wear so it gains that antiquated/worn-in look.

  • Friday, May 29, 2009

    Q: What is the sleeve length of the A2, size small jacket? I wear a 40 long sport jacket with 34/35 inch sleeves.

    A: The sleeve length on a size small would be 36 inches from the collarbone.

  • Saturday, March 14, 2009

    Q: Can the jacket be ordered with a plain lining ?

    A: This jacket is only available with the inside printed lining shown in the product zoom pictures.

  • Saturday, February 14, 2009

    Q: does this jacket come in black

    A: It is only made in brown leather as pictured.

  • Tuesday, December 23, 2008

    Q: can you provide a sizing chart to determine e.g. large 40-42, etc? Thanks,

    A: Generally speaking, Small is 38-40, Medium is 40-42, Large is 42-44, and XL is 46-48, and XXL is 50-52.

  • Thursday, November 20, 2008

    Q: is the antique lambskin jacket heavier than the 21st USAF A-2 jacket? and Do the sizes run the same? Do they "fit" the same way (or does one run larger/smaller)?

    A: Both the modern A-2 and the Antique are the same as far as heaviness. The sizes do run the same, however the modern one is slightly roomier.

  • Monday, August 20, 2007

    Q: Can you do custom silk screen on the inside and back of the jacket?

    A: We do not do silk screening for the jackets. We typically recommend checking with any local companies to do so.
