NOT MIL SPECK DEPENDING ON YEAR

  • By John from Springfield Ohio on Wednesday, July 26, 2017
  • Pros: Warm and nice fit
  • Cons: Not original or Mil Spec
  • Review: I have 30 years in Naval Aviation and have had all the flight Jackets, Of the 1950-1980, and I haven't really found a Mil speck on line today and have bought three. Except One G-1 Was close except for Collar. This MA-1 I have bought two and its a nice jacket and warm but not at all original or Mil Speck.

Not a great jacket for pilots

  • By Rick from Decatur IN USA on Tuesday, April 28, 2015
  • Pros: Looks and comfort.
  • Cons: Not well thought out for pilot use.
  • Review: It looks nice and fits well and is very comfortable. However it lack proper pockets enough to fit what a pilot wants handy. The pen pockets are not deep enough. The zippered pocket is not deep enough and the inside pockets are not deep enough to keep something, such as a cell phone or electronic flight computer, from falling out. I just wear as a regular jacket but not for flying.

Not up to expectations

  • By Mark from Ruffs Dale PA USA on Tuesday, January 15, 2013
  • 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.
