Official USAF 21st Century A-2 Jacket


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. Army fighter pilots, who often decorated their jackets with squadron patches and elaborate artwork painted on the back.

Cockpit USA (formerly Avirex LTD), the prime and only USAF government contractor for Air Force issue flight jackets, now offers the updated current 21st century version of the classic A-2 Air Force pilot's jacket, made out of the same luxurious Mil. Spec. government goatskin as earlier A-2 versions. The Air Force life support division listened to their pilots' requests to modify the 1987 version of the A-2 to accommodate current needs. This jacket now offers a host of new features which do not detract from its authentic appearance but provide the user with modern day conveniences. These include hand warming pockets, underneath flap pockets, inside pockets for personal equipment and a special pen pocket inside to allow pilots access to these articles.  The A-2 Leather Jacket also features  snap-down collar and  knit cuffs and waistband.

Proudly made in the U.S.A.

Sizes:
 These jackets are roomier so order your regular size.  The sizes are standard men's coat sizes.  Generally speaking, Small is 38-40, Medium is 40-42, Large is 42-44, and XL is 46-48, and XXL is 50-52.  Please note that sizes 48 and higher are slightly more expensive (price shown in cart).

Jacket Size Chart

For an accurate measurement, you'll need a flexible tape measure (inches) and someone to help you place and read the measuring tape.  Measure the biggest circumference around the chest and keep the measuring tape horizontal, wrap around the biggest girth of the chest, keeping the measuring tape up and close to the arm pits.

Absolutely Gorgeous A-2 Jacket
by Pat from El Mirage AZ 

Pros: Exceptional value for the money.
Cons: none
Review: I spent a couple weeks researching different brands of jackets. The price wasn't so much a factor as quality.This A-2 is of the highest quality. I live in Arizona so I took a drive over to mypilotstore.com and glad I did the folks there are super nice no pressure at all while I chose between the 21st century A-2 goatskin jacket or the 100 mission lamb skin jacket both are gorgeous so it was a tough decision but in the end I chose the 21st century A-2 because I like the improvements / features. I'm actually looking forward to winter now so I can sport my new A-2.

Nice Jacket
by Terry from Morgan Hill CA USA 

Pros: Fits well, comfortable
Cons: well, iot's new, stiff, and smells a bit of new leather - don't know if those are eallyu "cons".
Review: I somehow lost my 30 year-old Cooper A-2 and purchased this as a replacement. Overall, I'm very happy - it's a little heavier than my original A-2, and a little stiffer, but the addition of the side pockets is a real plus.

Review: I had a USN G-1 in the early seventies. I loved it more then tongue can tell. But a thief cut my tongue out. Now live in Arizona and don't need the fur collar, I thought the USAF A-2 would be perfect. If my neck gets cold, I throw on my scarf of The Great Wave Off Kanagawa. My jacket fit perfectly and feels amazing. I was surprised when my mail lady delivered it today. I'm thinking, I ordered it only yesterday. Then I noticed you have a warehouse in the Sottsdale Airpark. Yor site and service are a fresh prop wind in this crazy world. Thanks again. Byron Woolley

Great Jacket
by MICHAEL from Oxnard CA USA 

Review: The quality of your jackets I purchased is very good and detailed. My only constructive comments on the fit of both jackets. They both are the SMALL or 38 size.

The leather A-2 could be a bit wider at the shoulders/back....not much.. say, about 1/2" on each side. This would give more turning ease & comfort to the wearer. Otherwise, I'm satisfied with the snug fit, because I anticipate that it may stretch a bit to remedy the snug fit.

Hope this information helps. Incidentally, your customer services staff, Julia, was/is most helpful and "speaks highly" of your firm.

Where's this jacket been all my life?
by Lamont from Chicago IL USA 

Pros: See all of the above.
Cons: Although a beautiful and durable jacket, it probably won't last forever.
Review: Great jacket, great price, great buying experience. I've always been a bit apprehensive, about purchasing clothing over the internet for obvious reasons. Having once been an ad agency art director, I know how photography can make things look better than they actually are. However in this case the jacket in person out does the photograph. The high end goat skin leather, the quality of construction and of course the authentic styling make this the perfect leather jacket in my opinion. My wife won't believe I actually used the word perfect because I can be very picky (as most old art directors probably are). Now some reviewers have criticized the depth of the hand warmer pockets and the zipper. I wear a size L-XL glove and I can slide my hand in the pocket past my wrist on my size 48 jacket. As for the zipper, at first glance it may look a little small but it works just fine. All in all, I placed my order towards the end of one week and the jacket I spent years looking for arrived at the beginning of the next week. Again... perfect.

nice leather jacket
by Louis from Philadelphia PA USA 

Pros: See the review
Cons: See the review.
Review: Nice jacket for the price. I ordered a size 52. I thought that it might be a bit large but it fit just right I would recommend ordering one size LARGER than what you would usually order. I would have liked the jacket even more if the side pockets were a bit deeper and wider,but it is still a nice jacket. Nice quality leather.

Extremely pleased!
by Phillip from Williamsburg VA USA 

Pros: Excellent fit
Cons: leather has strong sheep smell
Review: I received my government issue jacket in the 1980's. Unfortunately It was stolen from a restaurant in Seattle Washington in 2005. Once I found this retailor and received the Jacket I was very glad to have something I had earned, lost and now replaced. Honestly, I don't remember the leather being lamb. But the style and fit is just the same as I remember. I am very pleased!

HIGH QUALTY, PERFECT FIT
by Jacqueline A from Earlysville VA USA 

Pros: Looks and fits great!
Cons: NONE
Review: This fabulous jacket exceeded my expectations. I have hunted for a great flight jacket for my husband for several years, but there was always something lacking. This jacket was exceptional in every way, from the flawless construction, to the beautiful skins used, to the heavy duty zipper, to the perfect fit--neither too big nor too small. I love the way it looks on my husband, and how great my husband looks in it. Best of all, he thinks it is a perfect jacket, and he is very happy with it. AND, it is made in the U.S.A. unlike most other available flight jackets.

Meets expectations
by Douglas from De Pere WI USA 

Pros: Good quality and fit
Cons: Strong smell of goat leather
Review: Overall quality of the jacket excellent. I followed the on line fitting instructions and ordered the recommended size which is a good fit. The jacket is warm enough for most upper Midwest winter days, however, when the temperatures dip below zero I wear a fleece under the coat. The jacket is comfortable even in the narrow cabin of my Mooney.

Review: Got tired of waiting for my unit to find money to buy a jacket so I bought my own and had the Velcro sewn on for my name-tag and Majcom patch. It's exactly as the issue jacket just without the DSCP label.

Perfect!!!!
by Jim from Yuma AZ USA 

Pros: It's REAL!!! Not a cheap immitation.
Cons: It took me almost 65 years to find it.
Review: I had Bomber Jacket in 1952 and somebody stole it. I've been searching for another one since. The jacket I bought from mypilot is absolutely perfect. I've received many compliments on it. My favorite compliment was from an ex-Army Air Corps (Signal Corps) pilot (P-51) that almost cried when he saw it. This jacket is extremely well made and made to last. It will never be out of style. I don't fly in a non-pressurized plane at 30,000 feet, but, unlike other leather jackets, it sure keeps the cold out!

In my humble opinion, it's the gold standard!
by Richard from Hampton NH USA 

Pros: Simply the best.
Review:

You have to have had a terrible experience with a poorly designed product in order to deeply appreciate just how much thoughtfulness, and consideration went into the manufacturing process of this jacket. The knitted cuffs, and the knitted waist that add untold layers of protection on cold, and windy days is superb.

The single cut design of the back of the jacket (one piece) is not (in my opinion) available with any other jacket out there. One less large seam to stress over while riding your favorite machine on the highway on a brisk day.

I LOVE it.
by Les from Johnston City IL USA 

Pros: The skin is great, the fit is great, the overall feel is great, looks great and won't go out of style
Cons: It's not cheap, but it's well worth the cost
Review: It was better than I thought it would be. Love the weight of the goatskin. I had a goatskin jacket years ago that was made of a much lighter skin. I rubbed some paraffin on the zipper and it slides like a dream. It seems to me that the ribbed cuffs are a bit long, but a minor thing. Customer service was quite helpful when I called for help in sizing. I have about a 45 inch chest, and he recommended a 46. Got it, put it on, it fits like it was made for me. I wanted one of these A-2 jackets for a number of years. I'm glad I got it from My Pilot Store. Cockpit still has a contract with the government for the manufacture of these jackets, and I'm glad I was able to get the genuine article. It's warm enough to wear in winter, if you have a shirt and sweater under it. It's certainly warmer that a fabric windbreaker. It does what it's supposed to. After all, a pilot didn't go up on a cool day wearing only a tee shirt under his jacket! Love it

Just being honest!
by Phil VandenBerg from Originally from Pipestone MN, curently Williamsburg VA 

Review:

I am pleased to have served and had this same jacket issued to me as an Aeromedical Evacuation Technician while serving in the Air Force at Rheine Main Air Base Germany (1984-1989). I continued to wear it past my retirement in December 2001. Unfortunately it was stolen from a local bar in Seattle Washington in 2005.

In review of all of the reviews that you have posted I am delighted to see that for those reviews that had complaints about the jacket, their concerns were the same as all of the active duty that had the jacket issued to them. Ironically no one complained because they all knew that the manufacturer followed specific Air Force specifications. It was not designed for comfort or for fashion. It was made specifically for technical requirements.

What I did find was that as you wore it, those little issues most likely fade away. Just like a good pair of jeans that are stiff when new, just get better with wear!

The reviews indicate to me that the manufacturer has chosen to stick with the original design.

...Outstanding, keep up the good work.

by dennis from Fredericksburg VA USA

by A Customer from Wichita KS USA 

Pros: Quality and looks

Review: Good looking jacket, very good quality. Sizing runs a little large I am usually between 42 and a 44 and the 44 is a bit large, but works well with layering. It is also a bit longer than other A2 Jackets so do not size up. Shipping was excellent, ordered on Thursday afternoon, received product Saturday morning.

Needs a better zipper
by LEO HICKEY from Waltham MA USA 

Pros: Good quality jacket. Good fit. Warm enough for New England winters. Love the inside pockets.
Cons: Stickey, lightweight zipper, difficult to start.
Review: My only complaint is the lightweight zipper. A jacket like this needs a larger, heavy duty zipper. If the zipper fails, the jacket is useless.

Great jacket - Better Service
by DAVID from Pullman WA USA 

Pros: Good quality
Cons: Would have been happier with the old style rayon lining as opposed to cloth
Review: When the jacket arrived I was laid up w/knee surgery. It looked good, but I wasn't able to really move around with it and just hung it up. A month later I was finally able to try it on and it was a bit snug. I requested a return authorization, sent it back and a short time later a larger one arrived. No questions asked. It fits perfectly and terrific quality.

Nice, You won't be disappointed.
by Jenks from Boston, MA 

Review: This jacket is very nice. Yes you can find something cheaper but it will be made outside the U.S. and the quality will suffer. This is a fair price for this jacket; compare retail price. I ordered a 42 and the size was perfect for me. I am 6' 0" and about 180 lbs. The waist band and cuffs are of high quality and seem to me will last a good while. The leather is goatskin and manufactured by CockpitUSA, U.S.A. made, and superior quality. I had a Navy G-1 years ago when I was in the military and it was not as nice as this. Very pleased!

Pros: Rugged yet soft , timeless and modern style. H
Review: I originally had ordered an Averex A-2 35 years ago and I was a lot thinner, single and used my jacket for many occassions. It still is in good shape and has not gone out of style. I saved it for my daughter. I have ordered my new one and again look forward to finding an excuse to wear this all year round jacket for many more years. When I opened the box I knew I found my old friend with updated style and that smell of genuine leather is second to none. The quality, conveniences and style are first rate and worth every penny!

My Favorite Jacket
by Mark from Woodstock GA USA 

Pros: Excellent construction, style and comfort.
Cons: None
Review: First off, let me say that wearing an A2 jacket makes a very bold statement. Especially when you consider all the pilots who gave thier lives to defend us wearing thier own. I keep that in mind every time I wear mine. Now, this A2 is definately very well made. The leather is soft and very comfortable. The lining is a heavy cotton like material that breathes very well. The overall construction is excellent with very nice stitching and attention to detail. The zipper is solid brass and appears to be of medium to heavy construction. I've worn it in cold weather down to 25F with long sleave shirts underneath and it provides good warmth. I fly a 172 and the jacket isn't too bulky so it wont be a problem in other GA aircraft with limited space. It works very well on the ground and in the air.

Expensive but worth it.
by Dan from Salt Lake City, UT, USA 

Pros: Warm, Stylish, Durable.
Cons: Scuffs appear easily but wipe off no problem.
Review: This is a great jacket. The build quality is exceptional so I have no doubt that this jacket should last a lifetime. It's warm enough to get me through dry Utah winters without the need for a full winter coat but if you live somewhere colder you may need a bit more. If it's good enough for the US military then it's good enough for me.

I would not buy this particular jacket again though I would like a good leather coat in my wardrobe.
by A Customer from Butler KY USA 

Pros: jacket looks good
Cons: Problems noted above
Review: I am not totally pleased with it. The leather is so hard that it bothers my neck. Because of this I have only worn it twice. Also before we ordered my wife measured my chest and it came to 42 inches. The catalog said that the coat comes rather large so I ordered the 42 but it is very tight. I should have ordered a size 43. I was tempted to buy a more expensive jacket but did not care for the pin-up girl shown in the inner lining.

Great jacket
by Douglas from Lampasas TX USA 

Pros: Durable, good temp range
Cons: Watch the sizing. Go with the manufactures sizing
Review: Sizing was a little confusing. My Pilot say to size one way, the company that makes the jacket says another so I wound up a size too big. Had to send it back cause some stitching came a little loose and got a size smaller. The second jacket fits better and no issues. Great jacket. This jacket does well in temps from high 30's to high 50's. Get lower than high 30's, need multiple layers under it, but its not bad. For a single layer leather keeps a good temp range.

This is the REAL USAF A-2
by red hawk (sqdn call sign) from Seattle 

Pros: 100% perfect for what it's designed for !!!!!!
Cons: none,, but if you want roomy comfort either buy a larger size or a non official A-2.
Review: I read reviews stating it needs larger pockets or roomier armpits, or it's too heavy. HELLO ! People, this is the real A-2 issued jacket for the USAF in the 21st century!!! If you expect big pockets and armpit room for an out of shape desk jockey, then go buy a fashion jacket that resembles an A-2 !! This is the real deal!! None are better as far as being worn by a jet jockey ! I flew F-16's for 21 yrs. The jacket that was first re-introduced was closer to the WW2 A-2. But, the current A-2 is designed for that purpose! It's trim, jet cockpits are not roomy ! lol Having baggy pockets would be a hazard for a number of reasons. As I said, if you want a real military A-2 buy this one !! If you want a fashion type, buy a non-mil A-2 designed for desk jockey's. Nothing wrong with those !! But some of the reviews I read were upsetting to me because this very A-2 survived a Mach 1 ejection , if it were "roomier" I would've snagged something on the way out and been buried.

Exceptionally Well Made in USA
by Chris from Mill Valley CA USA 

Pros: Craftsmanship and construction
Cons: Wish liner was silk instead of cotten/polyester...but it is a whole lot more breathable that way!
Review: Gave as gift to my father who retired from USAF some time ago. When I was a kid wore his A2 and it was quickly stolen in college.

This replacement is a moe modern update, but he loves it just the same.

Nice jacket but pockets too small.
by Rando from Iowa 

Pros: Styling
Cons: pockets, lining
Review: Heavy stiff leather which probably would have softened had I kept it. The jacket is as described on the product page and looks nice. Overall was a nice jacket except for what turned out to be a fatal flaw - the hand warming pockets are just too small and the stitching began to tear after only a couple of weeks. I play guitar and know my hands are average size, maybe even a bit smaller.

The only other negative was that the lining is cloth and not satin so the coat tends to pull your long-sleeved clothing along with it when you put it on. Not a big deal though.

I will say mypilotstore was great to work with in arranging the return and refund.

by A Customer from Altoona PA USA 

Pros: looks sharp
Cons: relied on the product description when judging size - guessed wrong
Review: My husband was very pleased with his gift. The leather is quality. He is a big guy so didn't find it as roomy as the product description indicated so I exchanged for the next size larger. The exchange was easy and efficient.

After a few wearing's the knit waist-band has pills on it from his sweater. I need to purchase a sweater shaver to remove them.

by Steve from Lone Tree CO USA 

Pros: Quality linning and leather
Cons: No zipper on inside breast pocket and needs more room in shoulders.
Review: I love my jacket. Just a couple of things I would like to see changed. The inside breast pocket it would be nice to have a zipper on it. It would be nice if the jacket was cut just a bit bigger thru the shoulders. Over all though I love my jacket and would not hesitate to buy it again and again. I highly recommend it for the guy that wants a true USAF jacket. Top drawer all the way.

Great Jacket
by Military wife Kate from Colorado 

Pros: EXACTLY the same as the AirForce Military issue. Well made.
Cons: Fit is too close to body - not enough wearing ease built in to design.
Review: This jacket is great - excellent quality really is the same as the military issue. My husband loved it. However - I would recommend ordering one size larger than your suit jacket size as you would probably want to wear something heavier or beefier than a dress shirt underneath. I would have given the jacket 5 stars if the fit wasn't so exact to body measurements.

Quality at a price
by anthony from Jupiter FL USA 

Pros: Nice Tradition Style, above average quality leather
Cons: heavy for an unlined jacket
Review: The jacket is about 98% perfectly flawless leather. It is heavy for an unlined jacket. So far it is very warm in temps to 35 degrees.
One can purchase 2 similar jackets for the same cost of this single jacket; if one is of average size. My coat size is a 56L. That is why I had limited availability to purchase.

Beautiful jacket but the "male" snaps were missing under both the pockert flaps.
by Mike from San Diego CA USA 

Pros: I loved the quality and color of the leather as well the overall construction.
Cons: I was surprised when I saw 2 white marks on the pockets (under the flaps) where the male portion of the snaps were missing.
Review: Overall the jacket that I received seems to be excellent quality and I am glad that I ordered it. The fit is right, but the sleeves were too long and baggy for me, so I had my tailor fix that as well as make the waist and wrist bands 1" narrower for a better look. The tailoring cost was $200 since the zipper had to be shortened to accommodate the narrowing of the waist band. For a jacket that I expect to get a lot of use from and should last the rest of my life, investing in a proper look and fit is worth it.

Classic Style, Comfortable Ft
by Chris R. from Liberty, MO 

Pros: Quality Materials/Make, Great Fit, Great Look
Cons: Small Side-Entry Pockets (likely due to AF specs)
Review: Just received my A2, I served 9 1/2 years in USAF as a non-pilot and was always jealous of them when they'd come in wearing these jackets. Glad to finally have my own! On with the review:

I'm 6'2" and while I can usually find clothing that fits well off-the-rack it's nearly impossible to find jackets in stores that fit well. I've had an A2 style jacket that I've worn for years and like most jackets I've worn it's slightly short in the sleeves and waist and unless I stand perfectly still I get a draft on my wrists and lower back. I ordered a 46 Long (tall) from this site and the jacket fits perfectly! It fully covers my arms and waist in my full range of motion without excessive bunching, it's almost as if the jacket was made for my hiegth. My chest is 45" so the 46 sits on my shoulders perfectly, unlike standard size jackets (S, M, L, XL, etc) that have excessive material bunching at the shoulders (and I have large shoulders).

It's fairly stiff a the moment but it should break in nicely. My only complaint is that the side entry pockets are too small for my hands to be comfortable, but since AF regulations typically bar you from putting your hands in pockets this issue is likely a result of AF specs placed on the manufacturer.

This is a great quality jacket that I'm looking forward to wearing for years, and years, and years to come.

Exceeds Expectations
by JR from Vegas 

Pros: Well made, good looking and nice feel to the hide, classic look and cut
Cons: Only thing I would add would be a couple of snaps on the flap
Review: Perfect weight jacket for temps down to upper 30's and to mid 60's. It's very well made with good stitching, consistent color and hides. Zipper is fine with this weight jacket. Interior is nicely finished. The pockets are well positioned and sized. I've had a number of comments on how nice a jacket it is. It's a classic, non-trendy look that 10 years.from now will still play well. The jacket is priced right and allows you to afford to buy one for a family member. I was in between sizes so they recommended I round up, good call since it allows me to wear a heavy shirt and still be comfortable.

Pros: Authentic U.S. Air Force Gear.
Cons: Absolutely NONE.
Review: THE REAL DEAL.... My son in law is an F-15E Strike Eagle pilot and my jacket is IDENTICAL to his Air Force issued model. I also own a U.S.Navy G-1, and the A-2 that I bought from you is the equivalent to it. As a matter of fact, my A-2 has additional pockets that I like better. The wind flap that covers the zipper is full length and it has more inside pockets. I couldn't be more satisfied. My G-1 Navy does have the fur collar and no shoulder epaulettes. This A-2 is a high quality jacket, well worth the price.

Review: I looked at many Mil. Spec. USAF 21St Century A-2 bomber jackets over the course of a month in order to make sure that I was buying the right jacket for myself. Not only did I want a jacket that I could be proud of, but also one that would fit a middle aged man! I am a retired Army Lieutenant colonel and I want to look professional. I ordered the jacket in my size and when it came, it looked fantastic and the fit was perfect. There were more expensive and less expensive coats online. You can't buy a better jacket for the money.

Good quality but not perfect
by Steve from Colorado, USA 

Pros: Quality leather and stiching
Cons: Less rugged zipper
Review: This is an improved version of the classic A-2 pilot jacket. This is a comfortable, good-looking, all-around jacket that is well suited for spring and fall, but not for cold winter temperatures. The zipper is not as rugged as I expected, but it is not bad. The front pockets are small, but this is a result of following the original design, which had the same problem. The inside pockets are better and quite useful. The price is relatively high, but the quality correlates with the price.

Everything you would expect
by Thomas from Chicago IL USA 

Pros: Looks great; quality leather and craftsmanship; made in the USA.
Cons: Pockets are a bit small, but still larget enough for wallets, phones, keys.
Review: This is a well-made jacket. The leather is heavy, and with time will age. If you want a weathered look immediately, this isn't the jacket, but if you want an authetic pilot jacket, this is the one to get. It's comfortable and looks great. I've only worn a couple of times and received immediate compliments and am looking forward to the weather turning colder. The sizing is accurate - order your suit jacket size; if you intend to wear bulky clothes underneath, you may need to order a size up, but regular shirts or very light sweaters should work fine with normal sizing.

I've shopped around to get an authentic A2 jacket and I'm very happy with the high quality of workmanship, the size, the fit, everything about it, even how the side entry hand warmer pockets are hidden, which doesn't detract from the authentic look of the A2 jacket. Cockpit has got this so right. The smell and the look of the leather just Hypnotizes everyone around and I know it!

Great Jacket
by Mike from Bradenton FL USA 

Pros: Quality goatskin leather; Excellent fit
Cons: The liner is too thin making these "21st Century" models more for everyday wear than what they were originally intended; to provide warmth to aircrews during low level flight.
Review:

I felt it was time to buy another A-2 jacket since my old one is 27 years old. The A-2 I received was as advertised. The goatskin leather appears to be of good quality and the rich leather smell had my bedroom smelling like a leather shop for a week or two; I loved it! I had occasion to wear it a few times before our Florida weather began to turn warm again and the comments I got from fellow workers was overwhelming. The squeak of the leather, the nice dark brown color and the leather smell permeated the work area with no complaints.

Aside from the way it wears looks and smells, it would appear that even with wearing apparel, the economic crunch is felt and seen. This jacket is lighter in weight that my other and the lining is much thinner, making me think that this A-2 was made more for fashion than practical use. When compared to my old A-2, the goatskin is lighter in weight and the lining is considerably thinner. My older one has a "cross sewn", slightly padded nylon lining than seems to offer more warmth on cold damp days. This new one required a sweater or sweatshirt to be worn underneath where my old one would have me sweating in forty degree weather if I wore anything other than just a long sleeve shirt.

Aside from that, the jacket fit perfectly and there were no rips or tears and mypilotstore.com did a great job packaging for shipping. I would certainly recommend buying from mypilotstore.com to all of my friends.

Still the best model in this category
by Patrick from Norwalk CT USA 

Pros: Overall excellent quality - Better than navy G2 version
Cons: Cuffs wear out quickly.
Review: This is my 3rd A-2 jacket - Quality and grade of leather remains excellent. Fit is perfect for me. Zipper is a bit light but has proven to be strong enough for years of wear. Excellent wind breaker but not overly warm. Works beautifully in colder weather with a high zip sweater. I wish My Pilot Store offered a high zip collar thin leather sleeveless vest to match similar to Tommy Bahamas'.

Excellent Jacket
by Brad from Coeur D Alene ID USA 

Pros: Nice leather, exact fit, excellent craftmenship. It is made for the military
Cons: none
Review: I shopped around a lot on the internet to find one of these. After going thru review after review, I found this one, it fits exactly as described by their sizing measure.  It's warm enough to wear as a winter coat in Northern Idaho, and light enough to wear when up to 40-50F. Leather is top quality, no issues with zipper or fit. My beer gut must not be as big as some because I have no issues with the waist, and I'm not skinny.

Just as Advertised
by A Customer from Colorado Springs CO USA 

Review: A wonderful jacket that I will wear for many years. I read all of the reviews prior to purchase and concur with the many positive comments. It is very well made with an excellent leather smell. Some who reviewed said the pockets were not adequate, however, the snap vertical pockets easily fit wallet , keys and cell phone. It is a nice thick leather but not too heavy. In fact,I can wear it inside without getting overly hot. Overall a very good purchase and well worth the money.

~PERFECT~ says it all
by LOU from Saint Charles MO USA 

Pros: FANTASTIC JACKET
Review: This Bomber Jacket was a gift for my husband...the look on his face, the pride he showed, was worth a thousand words and every penny of cost. He's a menber of the CAF Missouri Wing, proudly wears the jacket to all events. He's hopes to get the B-25 "Show Me"girl painted on the back someday. Have purchased several bomber jackets over the years, this jacket is by far the closest to the original and with your little improvements makes it ever better. Thank you for paying close attention to the details, the tips for sizing, the quality, it really makes a differece to those Air Force guys out there, which makes it worth every penny. Thanks again, LOU

Pure example of quality
by Michael from Pasadena MD USA 

Pros: Superior quality,workmanship, and USA made
Cons: I wish the hand warming pocket sections were a tad deeper, and I wish the brown color could be a shade or two lighter
Review: This what I have been looking for. A superior quality leather bomber style jacket made in the USA. The qulaity is the first thing your senses identify when you don the jacket for the first time. Does this jacket cost more then others of this style? Sure does, but better materials and workmanship always do. This jacket will be around long after I am gone. This is the benchmark for all leather apparel.

Very Fine Jacket
by A Customer from Palos Hills IL USA 

Pros: Great quality, fit and appearance
Cons: The exterior pockets could be bigger and the hanging loop bigger
Review: The A-2 jacket was designed for and worn originally by pilots during WWII as protection against the cold temperatures experienced at high altitudes. It is probably the best jacket ever designed.

I have worn many versions of the A-2 jacket over the years and have never found any others to beat the A-2 type of jacket.

I have owned an A-2 leather jacket for many yrs and this Cockpit jacket is far better than the older one.

Prior to getting this one from My Pilot Store, I received an A-2 leather jacket from another source and had to return it as it had a number of faults.

The civilian leather version made by Cockpit has two flap pockets, two interior pockets, and two pockets for pens/pencils which make for great convenience. Most leather A-2 jackets I know of, don't include the second interior pocket or the pockets for pens.

The back is made from one piece of leather rather than 3 pieces like most leather A-2 I've seen and the lining uses what appears to be a very durable material again unlike other jackets.

The materials and workmanship are of high quality which means the jacket will last for decades while retaining its fit and good appearance.

I would have liked the exterior flap pockets to be somewhat larger and the side pockets deeper. The collar hanging loop should be made bigger.

Perfect!
by John from Simi Valley CA USA 

Pros: The quality is evident in every aspect.
Cons: none
Review: Outstanding!. I have other A-2's. One from the Cockpit. This is undoubtedly the finest. One of the best features was to actually hide the hand warmer pockets behind the flap pockets without a separate slot pocket. The fit is exceptional. A 44 would have done but I prefer my jackets with a roomier fit so I still sized up. Very comfortable. I have rarely been this pleased with a purchase.

Nearly perfect!
by Eric from Little Neck NY USA 

Review:

I ordered my usual suit size - 42. The same as my OLD Avirex flight jacket.

After a short while, I realized it was too big - came down to far below the waist, bloused out in the back too much.

So, I ordered a 40, and gave the 42 to my brother, who is happy.

The side pockets on the new model are behind the flap pockets, so they are not as deep as the on-seam pockets of the previous design. Gloves will not stay in the new new side pockets, I stash them in one the inside breast pockets.

I still love it!

Where's my aeroplane?

Great Christmas gift
by Ann from Mankato MN USA 

Pros: Fit and style are excellent.
Cons: None that I can think of right now.
Review: I bought this jacket as a Christmas present for my husband. We had been looking for a leather jacket for years that would fit him since he is slender, but also tall, with long arms. Most other stores only sold tall sizes in large and extra large, and these were always too big around for him. He is very happy with the jacket. The sleeves are long enough, and the fit is comfortable. With Minnesota winters, he hasn't been able to wear it as much as he would like yet, but it will be perfect for later in the early spring, and again in the fall. Very satisfied with the product.

Good quality at a good price
by amz from IA USA 

Review: This is my third A2, the first one being a cheap Chinese knock-off, second one being an expensive horse hide one from Sportys. The first one was - no big surprise here - awful quality and fell apart within a year.

The second one help up nicely and it served me well for over 14 years. Unfortunately, it was stolen at a restaurant...

So far, this jacket has performed well. I like the modernized interior, and the leather is perfect. I am quite confident it will stand up to the test of time similar to the horse hide one I had before...

well crafted product
by Ken from Auburn, WA 

Pros: outstanding craftmanship. Unblemished leather. This is the real deal.
Cons: none
Review: I am very pleased with every aspect of the jacket. I ordered over the phone. The customer service represtentive was polite, professional and pleasant. Product shipped when promised. The jacket arrived within 4 days of ordering in excellent condition. In short this is exactly what I was looking for. Excellent unblemished leather which should destress well. Top shelf cratsmanship. The zipper is a bit stiff because its sturdy. I have read reviews that its a bit heavy. Actually its lighter than my bike jacket. The lining can be abrasive to those not used to rough fiber on the arms so I would recommend a long sleeve shirt or wear for short periods until used to it. Warm jacket. Order to size - it's roomy. Leather is a shade or two darker than online pics. I hope to wear this jacket for decades.

I tried it on in the driveway!
by Steve retired FireFighter from Aloha, OR 

Pros: Where do you start, Leather is great, liner is great, pockets are great.
Cons: The zipper needs a little wax for lube.
Review: The UPS guy just drove up and I was outside anyway so I just opened the box and tried it on before he even left my street.
It replaces my old A2 copy, which I had for years. My wife bought me the old one and there was a no return policy (different vendor). I had to have a couple things modified to make the old one close to right. It had a difficult to repair seam fail and I decided to see about a new one.
This is the real deal, I love it, the liner quality is so much better than the old coat of mine. There is no seam running down the middle of the back and across the back like the old one. Comfort is great and the smell I could only wish would last forever.

Thanks, you did good.

Review: I bought this Jacket to wear in the cold winters here in Northern Minnesota. I also bought a down vest to wear under it for extremely cold days. So far, I have only used the jacket, a cashmere scarf, and good quality gloves on the coldest days (adding the down vest over a chamois shirt is too warm even for -20 degrees. Wind does not even matter; I am warm even when the wind chill drops below -20. I am totally satisfied with this product and would suggest it to anyone in a "cold" climate.

Great Jacket
by Frank of the Skies from New York 

Pros: Great construction. Authentic styling.
Cons: Arrived badly creased. Pilling on cuffs and waistband.
Review: The jacket is as described and is well made. The leather isn't quite as buttery soft as I had expected though. It sort of squeaks when I bend my arms but I imagine it needs to be broken in. The only real negatives I can report is that the jacket arrived with a really nasty crease in the back that after weeks of wear is still there. I've tried steaming but it doesn't work. The other gripe I have is that after only a few weeks of light wear the knit cuffs and waistband are beginning to pill.

I don't want to be all negative about this jacket though. For the price, I'm very satisfied with my purchase and would highly recommend the Cockpit A-2.

Pros: AUTHENTIC, IMPROVEMENTS ARE GREAT
Cons: It's a military issue jacket
Review: It really goads me on some of the reviews I have read on this jacket from people who either have never been in the Air Force or just plain ignorant. The reviews that it isn't authentic enough---hello, it's a USAF issue A2. The pockets are too small---hello, it's a military issue flight jacktet. The lining is rough... hello that is the original military issue spec. If you want larger pockets or a silky lining, buy a knock-off A2 from China.

Exactly as described
by James from Kingsport, TN 

Pros: Quality of the leather, stitching, fit and finish
Cons: none
Review: My jacket arrived promptly and was exactly as described. The fit was perfect. Just what I was expecting. This jacket was a replacement for one I have had for almost 30 years and this one seems to be of even better quality. The only issue I have had is with the lining. While it is superb, it is sometimes difficult to get my arms into the jacket due to the roughness of the material. I wish it could have had a smoother, slicker lining in the sleeves. However, that is a personal preference and I would recommend this jacket to anyone.

Nice looking jacket, but not functional
by David from Brandon SD USA 

Review: This is a very nice looking jacket, with quality leather. I have had good comments from a lot of people. However, I found the pockets are too small. I can't put a small pair of leather gloves in the side pockets. The inside pen pockets are too deep. Put a pen in there and you will be using your leatherman to get it out.

The last thing I did not like about this jacket, is it doesn't have a bit of insulation. But then again, since I can't carry a pair of gloves with it, I won't be using it for the winter.

Style is ALMOST right.
by Edward from Wellington CO USA 

Pros: Still worthy of purchace.
Cons: Not as authentic as I expected.
Review: I had bought this jacket as a replacement for a former A-2 by a different supplier, that looked identical to the WWII jackets. The zipper 'pull' failed to lock the zipper together properly after many years use. I bought this one as a replacement, then found a seamstress who simply replaced the 'pull', informing me that the failure to lock a zipper closed was usually the 'pull'. She was correct. I'll still keep this newer one in reserve, however. It is well made but not as authentic-looking.

Review: The quality and workmanship exceeded expectations coupled with the timely free delivery. It compares very favorably with my official issue A-2.The pockets and inner pen pouch are a plus.

Exceptional Jacket - Above Reproach
by John D. Moore Jr. from Albuquerque, NM 

Pros: High quality craftsmanship; superb leather; pen pockets; hand warmer pockets
Review: My A-2 jacket far and away exceeded my expectations. I've had an A-2 issued to many years ago while serving in the USAF and it seems inferior to my new A-2 jacket. The fit was perfect, and the quality and craftsmanship that went into making this jacket is exceptional. Kudos to Cockpit USA on their unbelievable jacket. It will see many, many years of solid use ahead and I believe it will definitely hold up as well, if not even better, than my issued A-2.

Nice jacket, wish snap pockets on front were bigger
by Bruce from Austin TX USA 

Pros: Built to last, lots of pockets, warm
Cons: Snap pockets are too small for me to be almost useless if you are using the hand warmer pockets.
Review: I really like all the pockets in this jacket. My one gripe are the snap pockets, they just aren't as big as the pockets on the jacket I'm replacing by purchasing this new jacket. This might not be an issue for some who isn't use to a larger pocket jacket. Looks good on me and it is warm, it actually might be a little heavy for Texas weather but I'm looking forward to having it on when I am at 6000 feet in my PPC and it is really cold up there. Nice hand warmer pockets that are very useful if you don't have anything in the too small snap pockets. My last jacket lasted 30 years. The construction on this one will likely make it the last jacket I'll be buying this lifetime, 30+ I'm guessing. Hell for stout as we would say in Texas.

Just what I expected
by A Customer from  

Pros: Good quality and good fit.
Cons: Wish I could order one in black.
Review: This is a quality jacket. I was apprehensive about what size to order and was pleasantly surprised that I was able to order my actual chest size and receive a jacket that fit. The price was very competetive for a product made in the U.S. That's a win/win .

Still a solid classic
by patrick from Norwalk CT USA 

Pros: excellent fit for me
Cons: zipper seems delicate- could use a mesh BBerry size zipped inner pocket
Review:

This is my second A2 in 22 years when I've gone from a 44T to 48Tall (which is slightly oversized for me) but I use it a lot when travelling and have room to layer with sweaters as i fly between climates from 0 F to rainy 70F.

My only concern was that the zipper seemed a bit light/thin for such a heavy duty jacket but it looks like it will survive . Of course the new jacket was a bit stiff but after beating it on the floor a few times and sleeping in it on long flights to Asia/Europe it is becoming a second skin like my first one. I have a bunch of various North Face jackets which are fine but too delicate for many conditions I'm in. This A2 is indestructible however and a keeper.

The first wearable A2 I've had
by A Customer from Charlotte, NC 

Pros: Great leather and workmanship, priced nice !
Cons: a little baggy in the lower back but I'll take the hit and revel in the comfort
Review: Well made and the fit is just great. I've had the $1,000 jackets before and as wonderful as they are to behold, I was never really comfortable in them. This jacket looks great and I have a feeling I can wear it AND move around all at the same time!
(sizing note- I usually wear a 42L or 43L sport coat and I got the 44R, which fits just right. They are roomy but not all that much so in the sleeves and shoulders)

Excellent jacket - love it!
by WS - Chip from Birmingham AL USA 

Pros: Comfortable; good fit; heavy weight; ample pockets
Review: This jacket is everything I had hoped it would be. It looks great, feels great, wears great... I've gotten many nice compliments about it. I ordered my regular size and it fits very well, even over a heavy sweater or fleece vest. It is of a heavier weight leather than I expected, which is a plus. Workmanship seems excellent. Ample pockets provide places for wallet, keys, pens, etc. It is not a warm jacket, but with a vest, it works well on all but the most frigid days. Delivery was prompt. Excellent value.

Cons: Absolutely none.
Review: This is the best A-2 I have owned and could not be happier with it. I was a little concerned about what size to order. I'm 5'10", weigh 155 and wear a 40R suit coat. My jacket is a 40R and fits fine with adequate room for a sweater if desired. Hope this might help someone to decide.

Great jacket!
by Mark from Decatur GA USA 

Pros: classic A2 look, versatile for all types of weather or activity
Review: This jacket has enough room that you can easily wear it over a sweater or liner, but when you wear it by itself it looks good, not baggy. It's a great jacket for wind or rain. Worn over a sweater it's kept me warm with the temp below freezing. I've worn it out to dinner and when working in the yard. This is just a great all around jacket.

A pleasure to wear nice jacket, not fake
by Andrei from Moscow Russian Federation 

Pros: Excellent leather
Cons: Wish for slightly heavy zipper
Review: Most excellent jacket I ever wore. Thick and heavy but very soft leather, as I like. And natural color. Two pockets are useful. But I a little doubt about durability of poly/cotton liner, I got accustomed for nylon/cotton or nylon. But I confide in professionals of Cockpit and believe liner will run all life of jacket. And may be slightly heavy zipper would be on the jacket. Thank you for your time.

A Great Jacket
by AJ from Chicago, IL 

Pros: Quality construction and a great look!
Cons: Hanging Loop
Review: This is my second goat skin A2 (lost 40 lbs) and it is an absolutely great looking and feeling jacket. I wear my A2 early fall to late spring. A thinsulate vest is sufficient for all but the coldest Chicago winter days. My first A2 had a much smaller hanging loop inside the collar. This one seems too large and has a tendency to poke the back of the neck, particulary when seated. The hanging loop is a bit of a useless detail, and I think it should be eliminated.

by Courtney from Charlotte NC USA 

Pros: well made from GOOD skins, good fit
Cons: inconveniently placed handwarmers (no biggie)
Review: I love my new A-2; the leather is heavy but not weighty, and I wanted a generous, oversize fit so 54 was good for that. Closer to the body I would get a 50. My only complaint (tiny) is that the handwarmer pocket seem inconveniently placed, behind the flap pockets. No biggie. This is first rate premium jacket!

The Real Deal
by Jerry from Papillion NE USA 

Pros: Fit and finish are top notch
Cons: This is not a cold weather jacket -- but I knew that.
Review: This A-2 jacket was inspected by a USAF aviator; he says it is an authentic product with all the latest innovations. Being goat skin, it conforms to the milspec and by all appearances is exactly the same as the ones I see flight crews wearing at the local air base. If there is one drawback it is that the sleeves may be just a tad too short for my long arms. It would have been nice to have an option for another inch of sleeve length. I see that some of the flight crew members have the same problem. Otherwise the fit/feel is as expected.

My husband loves his new jacket
by Lynn from San Diego CA USA 

Pros: Durable, attractive in style and color
Cons: Initially a little less flexible than I anticipated
Review: The new jacket is wonderful, well constructed and seems very durable. My husband loves it although he is still pretty attached to his 21 year old bomber jacket because it is soft and flexible after much wear. I hope this one mellows a little and becomes more like wearing a glove. He saves this new one for 'dressy occasions.'

This baby replaces a twenty-year old aviator jacket made of cow's hide. Will keep the old one because it has history, but looking forward to creating new history with this one.

GREAT
by Pfc. Joey "ZaZa" from NY 

Pros: well made, just as described
Cons: zipper seems a bit stiff. I suggest putting a little candle wax on the teeth if you can't get a taylor's chaulk
Review: As a WWII Re-enactor, I chose this particular model because of the side entry pockets and the interior pockets (more room to stash personal, non-period correct items). The jacket is very comfortable to wear. I took my chest measurement with a heavy sweater on and ordered a 42. It fits perfectly...over a sweater. While wearing it over a T-shirt, it is big. The description says it's cut with a little extra room and to order one's normal size. My advise is to consider what look and fit you're going for and what you will most often wear it over. Another slight issue is the color. It really is the color pictured; dark chocolate brown. Sort of the same color as an officer's 4 pocket tunic.

Great quality and made in the USA.
by A Customer from mount juliet TN USA 

Pros: fits well, looks great, smells great, made in USA
Cons: the knit cuffs and waste band could be heavier duty.
Review: The jacket appears well made, fits well, looks great, and it is all I thought it should be. But, it could use a different material for the lining. The lining grabs your shirt materail as you put the jacket on. And the lining on the right side puches out of the jacket when it it not zipped up. The knit materials don't look as good as the rest of the jacket but we will see how durable they are. The inside pockets are great and the utility overall it great. My last jacket of this type lasted 15 years and I think this one is even better made overall.

by Tweak from Colorado Springs CO USA 

Pros: Great in all weather and absolutely superb leather
Cons: None
Review: As a Navigator, I was issued a few of these jackets over the years (with velcro). The quality and fit of these is far superior to the issued models. The A-2 is great in almost any weather, and in any situation from formal to casual. Recommend getting "exact" chest size rather than 1-upping the size as mentioned in previous review. The jacket is like a second skin so you want it a tad on the snug side, then break it in! r/Tim
