More than I expected
by B52's and Gam 77's from Greenville Tx 

Pros: I'll buy some more for Christmas gifts
Cons: Have to pay attention when starting zipper. Then smooth
Review: I am very happy with my jacket. It is comfortable, fits great (one size larger than normal) plenty pockets, inner pockets if you want to conceal something, and I think it will be plenty warm. I ordered it on Thursday, and got it in Saturday. Very fast for regular mail. I have paid more for lesser jackets.

My Dad loved it
by James from Anchorage AK USA 

Pros: Well built, versatile, true to size
Cons: Not a fan of the Alpha logos that are on the wind flap and sleeve tag.
Review: I bought the traditional sage MA-1 in 2X for his birthday earlier this month and he absolutely loved it. He said it was a great replacement for the one he was issued in the late seventies.

by Captain Gary Moscato/Vessel Captain from  
Review: From a C-124 Flight Test Crewman, I lost my original jacket some years ago.  It was sooo loved by the thief it was never seen again!  I never thought I would find the same thing like it again.  Always climbing around the aircraft it was comfortable.  I have the Airforce 10" logo on the back.  Every time I wear it someone wants to know "where did you get it? that's a nice jacket".  Always check the color for ordering our USAF Flight Jackets were the sage green.  Sr. Airman KADO,1501stFMS,Travis AFB, C-124C/C-130H's.  Clear! TURNIN ONE.

MA-1 Nylon Flight Jacket - XL (Sage Green)
by Frederick from Lees Summit MO USA 

Pros: Great, good quality.
Review: This flight jacket is great. It was exactly like the jacket that I wore many, many years ago. I really had some doubts about ordering something on-line and spending $100.00 dollars. I'm more than pleased with this jacket. It brought back memories, both good and bad. Thank You.

Close but not the same
by Flyboy of the seventies from Maryland, USA 

Pros: Looks authentic
Cons: Not the same quality
Review: I wore this jacket while in the Air Force in the seventies. At the time I received two MA-1 jackets one for cold temperature below 30's and a lighter one for temperature in the 40's and above. They both looked identical but one was heavier built and has wind flap. The zipper was heavier and made of copper with some coating to make it slick. The orange lining one the lighter MA-1 was made of satin cloth shiny and slick easy to slip your hands in and out. The sewing quality was much better you wouldn't be able to identify individual stitch like this one. It was design to make it very comfortable for a pilot sitting in a cramp cockpit therefore it's best when driving as well.

I would pay whatever the price to get the original quality but this is probably the best replica one can find in the market and since I am only wear it for the memory so I am fine with it.

Excellent product!
by Dianna from Richmond IN USA 

Pros: My spouse loves his new MA1. It has been manufactured with an eye toward the original details & the quality is exceptional.
Cons: There should be an alternate version of the MA1 for purchase, using a wool-blend interlining, for those who live in colder regions.
Review: My husband & I were both in the Air Force in the mid to late 70s & as law enforcement personnel stationed in the Midwest, we were issued MA1s. Unfortunately, whenever our squadron's outerwear was updated, I was forced to relinquish mine. My request to be allowed to keep it, fell on deaf ears. My spouse, however, was lucky enough to keep his & he wore it until it was rather dilapidated. Over the years I'd purchased a couple of replacements for him & neither were of the quality of the original. The MA1 recently purchased from your website is the most like the original that I've found. The only negative is that the interlining should be more dense. I believe the original MA1s interlining was made with wool or a wool-blend.

by Edward from Roanoke VA USA 
Pros: Excellent. Very professional looking. Much better looking than Sporty's
Cons: Does not have a patch place for a name tag.
Review:

Good looking,just like the military "issued model".  Excellent construction.  A great winter jacket but a little heavy as a spring jacket.

My pilot friends are very envious

Just what I wanted
by Gordon from Rosenberg TX USA 

Pros: It met all my expectations. Well made and just what I have always wanted. Priced right as well.
Cons: none
Review: I have wanted one of these jackets for a VERY long time..at least 40 years! I finally decided to buy one and chose to buy one that is one size larger than I normally wear, and was glad I did. I think the large would have been to snug around the middle. I also read in a handgun magazine that the jacket is nice to use for a concealed carry pistol in one of the inside pockets. The XL jacket will also cover and conceal my pistol (which is a requirement in TX).

Buy only if you demand "The Best"!
by James from Phoenixville PA USA 

Pros: GREAT LOOK! Fit and finish are perfect. Truly enjoy wearing. Very warm!
Cons: Wish I had bought it sooner.
Review: The only thing the "Pilot's Jacket" is lacking is a F-117 to strap on your back! Fit is perfect (take their advise and order one size larger than normal). I really enjoy wearing it. I haven't worn either of my other leather flight jackets since receiving it. I bought a small American Flag to put on my sleeve. I'm getting my brother one for his birthday. He really liked it as well.

Cons: Zipper is a little tough sometime.

High Quality - Beware the Sizing
by Rick from Council Bluffs IA USA 

Pros: The original and looks it, high quality
Cons: They run small, some won't like the cut
Review: The quality of this jacket (Chinese-made for an American company) is excellent, far better than that of the imitations I've looked at. Some have commented about the odd cut but that's according to the original MilSpec -- it's for sitting and reaching so it has extra room in the shoulders. They do seem to run small: I'm 5' 11", 170 lb and every other jacket I own is a Medium; this one's a Large and I like the fit.

Good Quality
by Boomer from Macungie PA USA 

Pros: Heavy duty zipper and reverseable are great features.
Cons: None
Review: Great looks, just like the old days ('68 USMC issued ).
Looks good with my squadron patches sewn on.
Keep up the good work...I like that it's American made.
The "gear pin" flag is a nice touch.
Any UH34D crew chief would be proud to wear it.

I would recommend this item
by LEE from WARRENTON OR USA 

Pros: Close replica, nice fit, good quality.
Cons: . The zipper does not seem to be has heavy as the original MA-1.
Review: I have enjoyed this jacket from the moment I received it. My father was in the Air Force for 30 years; whenever I could I would wear his MA-1 and always wanted one of my own. This jacket reminds me so much of his, almost the same quality. If you are looking for a close replica this is the one for you. The only complaint I would have would be the zipper. The zipper does not seem to be has heavy as the original MA-1.

Not up to expectations
by Mark from Ruffs Dale PA USA 

Pros: Materials OK.
Cons: Wrokmanship average at best
Review: This is my fourth MA-1, and it is not up to the standards of the previous three. Problem with sizing: Although it is an XL, it is short through the torso. Problem with assembly: Stitching is not consistent - bunching of material in front around zipper and on sleeves,sloppy stitching around cuffs.

A good value and outstanding product.
by John H. from Little Rock, AR 

Cons: None
Review: I received my order today. An MA-1 flight jacket. I was a pilot in the Air Force for over 20 years and spent a lot of time wearing this jacket. The jacket I received actually seems to be a better quality than my original issue Air Force jacket. I give this jacket 5 stars. I ordered a size larger than I normally wear which worked out perfect. As well as being a very serviceable jacket it brings back a lot of old memories. I plan on sewing on my old leather name tag and am ready to go. A good value and outstanding product. Well done.

by Sebert from Wichita Falls, TX 
Review: I purchased this jacket for a friend who is 80 years old and just told me a few days back that one thing he always wanted was a flight jacket like he had in the Air Force . When he was discharged he had to turn his in and he said that he tried everything to get the Supply Sgt. to let him keep it but to no avail.
I received the jacket by UPS and met Jack at Denny's to give it to him. The look on his face and the happiness he showed was well worth the price I paid for the jacket.
He got the jacket and I got the pleasure of making an old friend happy.
He says the color is the same and the quality is comparable to his original.
Thanks

Super jacket.
by Stephen Lopatic from Harrisburg PA USA 

Pros: Authentic
Cons: none
Review: This jacket is just like the one I wore as a member of the USAF 96th Combat Defense Squadron in 1963-66. This not some cheap knock-off. The zipper is a little sharp-but hey, so was the one I wore 47 years ago. The zipper and jacket is dejavu, all over again. I intend to "trick-out" the jacket with some unit patches.

sentimental choice
by Patrick from Lewiston ID USA 

Review: I spent a long time in the USAF and found this jacket a real find. The convenience of sleeve pockets and upgraded elastic sleeve ends better than the original without reducing the effect of my first MA-1 years ago. I see the reversible feature to international orange completes the authenticity of the jacket. Thanks for the memories......

Love the Jacket, hate the zipper
by Michael from Humble tx USA 

Pros: Good price for the quality of jacket
Cons: zippers need to be changed
Review: I enjoy the jacket so much, I purchase one in each color. All three jackets are very good in quality, except for the zippers. The zippers are hard to open or close and just don't function properly. I tolerate the zippers because I like the jackets so much

Would buy this product again
by Don the Mooniac from Panama City FL USA 

Pros: warm on the ramp, not too bulky for small cockpits
Cons: not made in the USA
Review: Exactly what I was looking for- a replacement for my old, worn-out flight jacket. It is perfect for my flight operations, and the price is certainly reasonable. Does everything the mil-spec version does for 1/4 the cost. Extremely pleased with this buy.

Overall Good Value
by Dick. from Whitmore Lake MI USA 

Pros: Fits well, looks nice, is well made
Cons: Metal teeth on zipper are quite sharp where it joins to the cloth, resulting in scratching of skin if not careful.
Review: This was just the jacket I hoped I would get. It has worked well in the month that I've had it. Seems to resist staining, appropriately warm, well made. The single negative is that the metal zipper is quite sharp and scratches skin if the zipper is left open a bit, like at the neck area. Hopefully this will diminish with time. I'm about to try using some fine sandpaper to try to dull the back side of the teeth. Other than this it is a good value.

by lindsay from greenville SC USA 
Pros: My jacket fit perfectly! Very comfortable &warm.
Cons: NONE
Review: I have truly enjoyed wearing my nylon flight jacket that was ordered in Dec., 2010. Many compliments. It is truly the warmest jacket I have ever worn. I really have no dis-likes about my jacket,except that I wished it had zipper pockets on both arms instead of one, but, really this is not a negative for the jacket. I intend to purchase another for my nephew, but he wants one that is like what the Air Force F-16 pilots wear--got one?? Thanks for a great product and timely delivery. Lindsay -Greenville,S.C.

Zippers are sticky. Other than that, GREAT!
by John from Lakewood CO USA 

Pros: Love it!!!
Cons: Zipper sticks
Review: I've worn this jacket a lot, but the zipper still seems to stick a lot. I had seen some knock-offs with a cheaper zipper, and was very happy to see that the zipper for the jacket was old school. I'm very satisfied.

Great Jacket!
by Louis from Largo FL USA 

Pros: Great material and easy to wear!
Cons: I don't know,,, I can't think of one off hand!
Review: I had a jacket like this one when I was in the military and stationed at NAS Pensacola, Florida. Every time I wear it I remember those adventure filled days. It is still one of the best jackets around for the price. I am retired now but this MA-1 Green Flight Jacket still delivers. It is a must to all who fly or dream of flying on a 24/7. The jacket feels good when you have it on and you feel walking on a cloud. But hey, take your plane with you!

Supurb quality
by CAP pilot from Davison MI USA 

Pros: High quality and attention to detail. Mil-Spec from original U.S. Military supplier
Cons: More expensive that the knock-offs, however you get what you pay for!
Review: A superior flight jacket. Alpha Industries has great attention to details on this jacket. I appreciate the articulated arms - something that cheaper jackets don't have. The stiching is very good and the material is absolutely top notch. One of the other pilots in my CAP squadron bought a cheaper jacket and she was very unhappy with hers after looking at the Alpha Industries jacket I purchased from "MyPilotStore". Be advised this is a VERY WARM jacket that is designed among other things for Pilot survival in a crash / lost situation. That is why it has the reversable orange side. A great product made to Mil-Spec. If you want the real deal buy an Alpha Industries MA-1 from My Pilot Store.

MA-1 Nylon Flight Jacket a big HIT
by A Customer from Naperville IL USA 

Pros: Great design of pockets, Fit is very good.
Cons: Rides up the back a bit
Review: This jacket was purchased as a gift for my pilot brother-in-law. Little did I realize that he had been looking at them for a long time. He tells me it has become his everyday jacket. He likes the lower inside pockets for holding his maps and claims it is plenty warm in Illinois winters.
