US Navy Issue Mil Spec Type G-1 Jacket


Since 1938 the G-1 flight jacket has been regulation issue gear to pilots of the United States Navy. The G-1 is also worn by members of the USMC and US Coast Guard. This leather flight jacket has been worn by Navy and Marine Corps flight crews during the most heroic air battles in history. 

This jacket, made of 100% Military Spec goatskin, features:

  • US Navy pattern
  • Bi-swing back
  • A genuine silky lambs wool shearling mouton fur collar like the WWII era jackets (instead of the current government spec synthetic acrylic collar)
  • Knit cuffs and waistband
  • Top entry front flap pockets
  • Full zip front wind flap
  • Under arm grommets
  • An inside chest pocket with nylon lining
  • Proudly made in the U.S.A. since 1975.

We also offer a modern version of the original G-1 Jacket as well as a Top Gun G-1 Leather Jacket with patches.

Sizes:
We recommend that you order one size larger than your normal size for a roomier fit as this is a Mil. Spec. size garment. For those who prefer the true to size fit, order your actual 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.

Great jacket!
by Phil from Mountain Ranch CA USA 

Pros: Very good quality.
Review: I don't fly now, but I love the jacket. It is a nostalgia thing for me. Other than being brand new and smelling good, this jacket is just like my old one I wore in the Navy in the early 1960s.

Thank you so much for such a memorable gift
by Shirl from Hilton Head Island, S.C. 

Review: My nephew absolutely loved his Navy G1 jacket, size was perfect. My brother said it is the first thing you see walking into his house, and he never flies without it. Delivery was excellent and now I am getting ready to order one for my BROTHER:-) (who is also a pilot) what a lucky girl I am!

Thank you so much for such a memorable gift, and one that is made in the USA!!!!

I love this coat.
by Doug from Valrico FL USA 

Pros: Everything is perfect.
Cons: I have gotten used to having my hands in my pockets. Big no no in the Navy. No pockets for hands. That really is not a bad thing.
Review: I always wanted to get this flight jacket when I was in the Navy. I was a sea going sailor instead of a Airedale. I either did not have the money or the right connection. Now after almost 20yrs. I have what I desired for so long.It is definitely worth having if you are in the same boat I was in.

Worth the Price and More
by A Customer from Wind Gap, PA 

Pros: Leather Smell, Great Collar, Tough Zipper
Cons: Every so often wished it had hand warmer pockets
Review: Have worn my jacket every day for the past 4 months and honestly looks as good as it did the day I got it, no wear evident. Quality construction and material. I was hesitant to spend this much and looked at cheaper alternatives. Returned them all and am glad I did. Did order a size larger as suggested and it fits me perfect with a heavy sweater under and I am happy with the fit without a sweater. I could not recommend a product more highly.

They can't take this one away.
by "Doc" Hicks from Los Angeles CA USA 

Pros: Fits and moves like a second skin. Authentic style, materials, and construction.
Cons: Excessive time spent looking for old patches
Review: Received great service from MyPilotStore -- even got a call to confirm my size selection before they shipped. Packing was excellent and the jacket is ... well, it's a G-1.

I had two enlisted DIFCREW assignments. I was issued flight gear (suits, helmet, boots, gloves) and a G-1 each time, and each time I had to give it all back when the assignment ended. Could've cared less about the gear, but losing the jackets was painful -- when I tried to keep the last one, they had to threaten Mast and pry it off my back.

They can't take this one away from me.

worth every cent.
by charles from Athens AL USA 

Review: It's easy to see it's the real deal. Comfortable, warm, and very supremely constructed. If I could offer one improvement it would be to offer a long version for those of us with a longer body. It easily rides up above the waist.

Better than the original
by "Mrs. Maj" from Bloomington IL USA 

Pros: Original specs, quality of leather, fit, price/value
Cons: None
Review: My husband was a Marine A-4 pilot in the early 70's. His original issued leather flight jacket in 1970 was a size 40. It is in great condition still, but too tight to wear zipped up. He says The new G-1 jacket (size 42) is better than the original and identical to the specs on his original. The quality of the leather is even better, although a little darker. The fit is perfect for him (5'8" and 150 lbs). He wears it everywhere.

Not what I expected, better than I thought
by William from Milan IL USA 

Pros: It's mil spec.
Cons: Not a great fit.
Review: Well it is a mil spec jacket. Had to go up a size still not a great fit, but it works. Pockets would be nice, but it's mil spec. Collar does not look right, sorta sticks up in the back, might correct with more wear. Nice leather, sleeves a little tight.

Solid Choice
by A Customer from Butler NJ USA 

Pros: Good fit, sturdy construction, quality materials.
Cons: Could come with spare buttons.
Review: I have owned several jackets of this type over the years and have recently found it impossible to find quality anywhere near where it used to be in almost every type of product.
Here is one exception to the rule. Jacket is as advertised with sturdy constuction made from quality materials. Looks great and fits true to size. Sleeves were long enough on the regular version and I am 6'-2" tall.

Would buy again
by Admiral from Mattawa WA USA 

Pros: matches in looks the original flight jackets
Review:

Looks, feels and smells like flight jacket I was issued when my Naval Air Reserve Squadron VS-891 was activated in Oct 1961 when the Berlin Wall was going up.

Only worn it a few times but love the feel of it.

Fits well.

Somebody should tell my wife flight jackets are made to have squadron patches sewn on them. The patches are a walking history of where and what you done in your career.

I felt as though I were back in the submarine NAVY!
by Dr. Joseph from Shelby MT USA 

Pros: Authenticity!
Cons: None, from my perspective!
Review: The quality of this jacket is superb, and I especially like that the collar is real lamb's wool shearling mouton fur rather than the Mil Spec acrylic currently being used. I followed the sizing recommendations for this jacket and ordered the next size up, which turned out to be a great fit, especially accommodating a heavy sweater. The "official" NAVY jacket did not have hand-warmer side pockets, so I was glad to see that the authenticity was maintained by not having them. If those pockets are important to someone, then there's another similar jacket that can be ordered. If a person is looking for a "warm" jacket, then there are others that would be more appropriate than this one, unless a heavy sweater is worn underneath. The other "authentic" touches that I appreciated were the loop for hanging the jacket (It wasn't attached to the leather, either, in the original.), and the "USN" stamped with small holes in the flap behind the zipper. Once again, if one is interested in a jacket that's "other than authentic", there are other models offered that would better-serve a person. I wanted "authenticity", as much as possible! Thank you...

The BEST Christmas gift of the year!!!
by Karen from Sunnyvale CA USA 

Review: What a great product. My brother's fiance and I went in together to get the jacket for my brother. He is a private pilot and is just finishing building his own plane!! He LOVED the jacket (we even got him a red scarf to go with it). The quality is excellent and the fit was perfect! DO get the one size larger.

Great product, great service and worth the price.
by John (VP-47) from Michigan 

Cons: I can't find any
Review: I have wanted to replace my G-1 ever since someone turned it in when I was Med-evaced from the pacific in early 68. Someone was nice enough to cut off my patches and put them with my personal belongings and they have spent the last 44 years waiting for a proper home, and it arrived today.

The jacket was everything I had hoped it would be. The look, the color, the weight, the feel and even the smell are as I remember. When I put it on and closed my eyes, I felt that there must be a Lockheed P-3 Orion waiting on the flight line for me.

Sooooo much nicer than my original Government Issue jacket
by flghtmedic from MILTON FL USA 

Pros: fair price, quality workmanship, MADE IN THE USA!
Cons: none
Review: After 20 years in the Navy my original government issue G-1 jacket no longer fit well. I had originally been issued a 38 and later traded it for a 42. Now that 42 was even too small. I ordered my 46 from mypilotstore.com at the end of January. It arrived in very good time and the price was right compared to other places I checked. I dug through all my old patches to find the best ones to put on my new jacket. I then took my jacket to Wings and Things here in Pensacola, FL where they do an outstanding job sewing patches onto jackets and flight suits. I only wish I could attach a photo to show you all how great it looks. I also wish I could afford to have all my patches made into the beautiful painted leather ones they sell here, that is the one thing that would make it better!

by Hat Trick from Pacific Northwest 
Pros: Accurate, well made, beautiful
Cons: none
Review: My original, which logged 2000 flight hours (before they made us wear the green one) and with all my unit patches was stolen during my last Navy move right out of my house by a temporary moving company kid (with helmet, boots, etc). Not a good day. A buddy of mine years later bought this G-1 as a gift. That was a good day. It's perfect, and if anything an improvement on the cuffs, which frayed quickly on the originals. The feel, weight and smell are identical...and of course you get the same reaction from the opposite sex. :)

Exactly what I was looking for
by Gary from Laurel MD USA 

Pros: Good fit on shoulders and back, flexible, great leather
Cons: need a 1/2 size larger to go over sweater-see comment above
Review: I ordered one size larger as suggested by your ad. However, it should be designed 1/2 size larger than that to accomodate a sweater or bulkier clothing underneath in cold weather. Front panel pockets should be made to expand a bit more to accomodte gloves, other items; they are too tight. Needs a deep vertical inside pocket (like a shirt pocket) on the right side for airline tickets, papers,sunglasses, etc

Lots of Bang - it took years from my old age!
by chuck "matt" mathews from Brandon MS USA 

Pros: Everything
Cons: There are none
Review: This flight jacket is just as I remember mine in the early 50's. It has reduced the age that I feel and has put a bounce back in my step. I ordered it a bit large so that I don't have to hold my "belly" in so much. Memories can't be purchased so there is no problem with the price. I really do love the jacket. It has been in the 70's here in Mississippi this Jan. but I've managed to wear it with the aircondition on low. Smile!

Authentic Navy G1
by girlpilot from Saint Louis MO USA 

Pros: authentic, quality, size, appearance
Review: I bought this jacket as a gift for a Viet Nam-era naval aviator. He loved it - fits perfectly, has all the features he remembered from his Navy issue jacket right down to having U S Navy stamped under the zipper. Detailing appears to be authentic. The leather is substantial but supple so he can move freely in it. He had a friend transfer his squadron patches to it and is very pleased with how it looks and wears.

Great Jacket, Just Like the Standard Navy Issue
by A Customer from FL USA 

Pros: Fantastic quality, gorgeous jacket, just like the Navy issued jacket, great customer service, prompt shipping
Cons: none
Review: This is a stunning jacket, and is identical to the one my husband was issued. His was stolen last year out of my car, and this is the one we replaced it with after reading several of the reviews above. My husband and I both think it is actually a couple of steps up from the standard-issue jacket-- the collar is real fur (I think his first jacket was synthetic fur) and the stitching appears to be superior as well. As far as sizing is concerned, this is a jacket that fits a bit more snuggly, so if you're between sizes, definitely go up to the larger size.

My Pilot Store was awesome about sending it the same day I ordered even though it was past the cutoff time. Thanks for such a great transaction and a beautiful product!

Review: Jacket is what I had expected - just like the original - weight - feel etc. Same as my original - that I outgrew - in hindsight - wished I had ordered pockets with a side entry - I can live with it though. The goatskin leather is superb - has that feel. A very well made jacket. Especially like the deep inside pocket.

by Susan from Indianapolis IN USA 

Pros: Great quality and fit.

Review: Bought this G-1 flight jacket for my dad for Christmas. He is 5'7" and weighs 150lb. I bought the size 40 for him and it fits perfectly - that is, a more form-fitting fit, but by no means snug or tight. He has room to weat a sweater underneath or a turtleneck. Not too big and not too small. Just right! He loves it.

Happy Husband!!!
by Laurie from Virginia Beach VA USA 

Pros: Excellent customer service!!!
Cons: No velcro patches like the Navy issue ones...
Review: My husband couldn't wear his Navy issue leather flight jacket any more because pieces of it were worn out (holes init) and he really missed it! I found this one on-line and matched it up with what was left of his old one and it is pretty close to identical. I ordered it for him for a birthday present and he was VERY HAPPY to have a leather aviators jacket again. I followed the advise of others who had ordered and went up a size and it was perfect for him.

This jacket is the real McCoy
by SgtMaj. (ret) from Garden Grove CA USA 

Pros: It fits perfectly. The materials and workmanship are top quality.
Cons: If If you want a treasure map lining and a place to stuff your hands this is not for you.
Review: I was hesitant to spend $400 on a jacket without seeing it and trying it on. When I received this one and pulled it from the package my doubts vanished. It is the real thing. I feel qualified to judge having spent half of my thirty years in the Corps in aviation units.

My issue jacket always seemed too short for my orangutan arms so I ordered a long. I have put my ID and squadron patch on with velcro. When they are removed the remaining velcro is barely visible on the dark leather and the jacket looks quite conservative.

Excellent jacket
by TACCO Paul from Honolulu, HI USA 

Pros: Warm jacket and identical to the original; even the pros won't tell the difference.
Cons: Just one pocket button is unravelling.
Review: After losing my jacket in flight school, I went without one for a long time because the Navy's supply system is so skimpy in replacing them. The jacket I recieved from this store is identical to the original and I wear it to the squadron often. The fit was perfect for the size I ordered. The leather is high quality and the brass zipper is big enough to operate even while wearing flight gloves. However, the button on the left pocket has begun to unravel in just a few weeks of use, but it'll be an easy fix to sew back on.

Pros: Sturdy zipper and map pocket snap -- better than others I've seen
Cons: Hanging loop is just sewn to the lining -- better if sewn through the leather
Review: Authentic Navy issue styling... no handwarmer pockets (knockoff jackets have them, I didn't want them). The advice to order a bit on the large size is good. I normally wear a 44 -- ordered a 46 and it fits just right. Quality materials and construction. For some reason the collar tends to roll up -- ok if you want to keep the back of your neck warm.

I'm 23 years old again!
by Richard from Memphis TN USA 

Review: My old Navy flight jacket is 57 years old. Size 42. It fit great in 1952 and 1953. My new one, size 50, however, fits alot better today. I removed my squadron and carrier patches from the old one and I will have them sewn on my new one. The new one is the same as the great product that was issued to me as a Naval Aviator. A top product. Thanks for being there.

Delightfully surprised
by mary jane nash from alexandria, va. 

Pros: User friendly website, quick delivery
Cons: none
Review: The jacket I purchased looked even better in person. I was especially pleased with the quality and workmanship of the jacket. The online description was right on and as suggested I ordered one size larger. It was a perfect fit for my dad who was just thrilled with his 85th birthday present. I matched it up against my husband's own U.S. Navy issued flight jacket and was amazed at how every detail was duplicated. Good job!
