We need more quality USA manufactures like yours.

  • By Mark from Orion MI USA on Monday, March 11, 2013
  • Pros: Great Quality, Good feel, fits good!
  • Cons: Zipper leather pull tab ripped off just a couple of months in to use.
  • Review: Very nice product, great feel, had it a couple of months and it's just starting to break in nicely. Can wait for about a year down the road when it has some wear and tear on it, I bet it will feel great. Please use a better pull tab on zipper. For $600 dollar you would think a nice logo pull tab would be installed.

Ultimate Finesse In Leather Goods.-

  • By Santiago Iglesias Garca from San Javier, Murcia (Spain) on Friday, March 15, 2013
  • Pros: Classy, sturdy, undoubtedly beautiful.
  • Cons: Maybe I should have bought a size less...
  • Review: When I was able to finally put my hands on this jacket, I felt totally astonished. Being lambskin, it seemed to me a really sturdy leather but with a special smoothness. The lining is pure and simple artwork, and no doubt it keeps you warm no matter the weather. And the aroma... Once I hung it in my wardrobe, It seemed to soak all my clothes with a pleasant scent. On the subject of sizes, I suggest to choose yours or even one size less. When they say it's roomy, they don't lie. It is, and you must be some kind of a bodybuilder to correctly fit a XL (I'm 1'82 meters tall and weigh 105 kg, but there's still plenty of room in my A-2). I use to combine it with jeans and Dr. Martens-like brown boots, but a pair of Khakis or Dockers would also combine perfectly, just to mention two examples. Finally, My Pilot Store; a serious, thorough, careful service. I'm glad I did business with them. Expensive? No way Jose. You get what you paid for, period.

Well constructed jacket

  • By Edward J Barrett from Queensbury NY USA on Monday, May 13, 2013
  • Pros: Good value
  • Cons: Slightly heavy -but to be expected with the leather coat.
  • Review: I have found the A-2 leather jacket to be not only good looking but functional with no quality issues to date. I have had the jacket about 2 months. I have not tested the jacket in weather below 30 F but I think with proper under garments it should be fine. It is fine alone in weather above 30 F and fun to wear because of the look and the pockets available to carry stuff you do not want to loose. The pockets are well built and deep. The jacket is just starting to show normal wear which makes it look better- not so new looking. I will need more time with the jacket to see if it will meet the test of normal wear and tear, but by inspection of the stitching and zipper construction I think it will last for years.

Excellent Product

  • By A Customer from Fort Collins CO USA on Wednesday, February 27, 2013
  • Review: This is a very high quality jacket, and I am very pleased with it. At first, I ordered the wrong size, as it turned out. I sent it back, and the store promptly sent a replacement, which fits perfectly.

  • By Mark from Knoxville TN USA on Monday, March 14, 2011
  • Pros: One nice jacket well made.
  • Cons: A bit of an odd odour.
  • Review: I reviewed many different jackets and must say this is one great coat.  I am a 42R 175 lbs. 5'10" and the medium was a perfect fit and not too tight. Customer service was great and spot on as to my size.  The only small thing is the jacket has a bit of a strange odour.  Not really a leather smell,but I think in time this will dissapate.  Again,no big deal at all.  Definately two thumbs up.  Only problem is I want to buy more Cockpit coats!

Great jacket

  • By Deon from Chino Valley AZ USA on Thursday, March 03, 2016
  • Review: They do run a little big, but that's better than small.
    I'm keeping it, they can't have it back.
    If you're looking for an A2 this is the one to buy.

Love it! Bought for woman

  • By Kelly from Dublin CA USA on Wednesday, January 11, 2012
  • Pros: beautiful heavy leather. pockets galore! I don't need a purse when I wear it. So many compliments. Warm. It is my go to jacket .
  • Cons: NONE!!!
  • Review: This jacket is beautiful and high quality leather! I'm so thrilled with this jacket. I was worried about the size...I'm 5'6" 185lbs and the large is perfect and roomy. XL too big. I liked mine so well that I purchased one for my father for Christmas. He could not have been happier. He's 5'11" 200Lbs and XL was perfect for him. Don't hesitate this is the best quality leather jacket I've seen on the market. I couldn't think of anything to improve it.I covered pin up girl with a pin up guy but that was only improvement I made.

Outstanding, classy well-made leather jacket.

  • By from Sacramento, CA on Wednesday, October 24, 2012
  • Pros: Honors all of our military in a very classy way.
  • Cons: Very long sleeves.
  • Review: It is a fuller cut with longer sleeves, so order accordingly. Lambskin looks & feels great; very soft but not as durable as goatskin. The inside is a work of art in itself. Don't leave it sitting on the back of a chair in a public place, it'll be gone in a hearbeat.

We Brits love those A2's

  • By Ian from Kilmarnock Ayrshire United Kingdom on Wednesday, January 09, 2013
  • Pros: Absolutely bang on.
  • Cons: None
  • Review: Only our American cousins can produce an aviators jacket of this calibre. It's worth every penny even after Her Majesty's government customs took their cut. It's beautifully made and looks "real cool" my wife and the ladies are impressed! I took the advice of the team at My Pilot Store on the size. If you want that tailored look order one size down. I am 5'11" tall and 175 lbs and I ordered a medium, it's perfect. I have even worn mine with a collar and tie!! Lovely and warm and all I wear underneath is a shirt. Nice one chaps

Good quality but too heavy for Florida

  • By Max from Stuart FL USA on Thursday, January 14, 2016

Trying to match an old lambskin flight jacket

  • By William from North Tonawanda NY USA on Monday, June 15, 2015
  • Pros: Style and quality of the lambskin leather
  • Cons: Its a little stiff at first but softens with wear.
  • Review: I had a 25 year old flight jacket that I loved. I received compliments almost every time I wore it. Like all things time took it's toll. I have been looking for years for a flight jacket to replace the old one. This jacket is what I have been looking for. This jacket has the same decorative satin lining as the old one. The quality of the leather is out standing. It is soft,supple and gets softer with wear. I am sure you will love it.

Best Damn Jacket On The Planet, Hands Down!

  • By Jeff Elwood from Catoosa, OK on Thursday, August 04, 2011
  • Pros: Great Quality, Good Price, Made in the USA
  • Cons: None Noted
  • Review: I am 5'10", 195 lbs and muscular. I ordered the "Large" size. I took it out of the box, peeled off the plastic covering and slipped into it like a second skin. When I ordered it, my wife was concerned about the price and the past disappointments we have had with other jacket manufacturers. Now that she has seen and worn it, she likes it so much that she simply must have one too. I also have the "Cockpit" Tanker Jacket. You guys have quality unsurpassed by anyone, hands down. Oh, and it's "Made In The USA". (don't hear that much anymore!)

What a super find

  • By Franz Herrmann from Corvallis, OR on Thursday, October 27, 2011
  • Pros: Great looking and super fast shipping
  • Cons: Not a one
  • Review: I have been researching the internet for a nice A-2 leather jacket. I struck gold! This coat is so well made it will last a lifetime and made in the great USA. I'm 5'9 and 195 lbs, I ordered a large and it fits like a glove. You can find this exact jacket on other web sites but expect to pay $150 more and shipping.

  • By John from Duluth MN USA on Monday, October 31, 2011
  • Pros: Good fit, warm and attractive. USA made
  • Cons: none
  • Review: This is one of the best leather jackets that I have ever owned! I am 6'1" and 170 lbs. The large size fits me perfectly. The leather is soft and very well made. I would easily buy another and would recommend to any one interested in buying a leather flight jacket. Plus it is made in the USA.

absolutely The Best!

  • By Ray from Las Vegas NV USA on Thursday, March 22, 2012
  • Pros: Quality
  • Cons: fit is a little large
  • Review: As described!  Fits great, the cut is a little on the large size, but if you're larger on the top part of your body you need to order your normal size if not order one size down if you really want that tailored fit... The quality is unsurpassed. This is a jacket you can pass down to the next generation.  Highly recommend this jacket if you're looking for the best and don't mind spending a little extra to get the very best! Do not hesitate to buy this one! 10+ **************

  • By Lincoln from Atlanta GA USA on Tuesday, January 07, 2014
  • Pros: Excellent against blocking wind and retaining heat.

outstanding jacket

  • By Jeff from west deptford NJ USA on Wednesday, January 30, 2013
  • Pros: quality through and through, warm even for the northeast winters
  • Cons: have to break in another one
  • Review: This is my fourth flight jacket, and this is the best constructed one i've owned.  I usually wear one for about 8 years then I give it to someone and get another.  They love the used one as much as I like the new one.  Might have to keep this one a little longer.

Fine Product

  • By John from Fargo ND USA on Monday, June 24, 2013
  • Pros: Comfortable, Sharp looking, Durable
  • Cons: other than stiching, none
  • Review: Love the Jacket, It is very comfortable, doesn't get too hot. Some of the stitching has me concerned, as in some minor areas, the stiching looks to be loose. Other than that, I would recommend it to people.

Made the old fashioned way!!

  • By Steve from Westampton NJ USA on Wednesday, March 12, 2014
  • Pros: construction, warmth, appearance
  • Cons: none
  • Review: My first impressions with this jacket have been overwhelming. I had worn out multiple leather jackets before biting the bullet and buying the A-2. It was stiff to start, requiring a break-in period (just like fine leather boots) but has been a dream to wear. We have had one of the most nasty winters in recent history here on the east coast and the jacket has really impressed me with it's warmth and weather resistance. The A-2 is the real deal!

Definitely worth the price!

  • By Shanna from Grand Forks ND USA on Thursday, November 07, 2013
  • Pros: Brilliant workmanship
  • Cons: Takes a couple weeks to break in the leather
  • Review: I got this for my boyfriend of two years. He recently started wroking at the University of North Dakota flight school as a CFI and to congratulate him (as well as a two-year gift!) I got this for him and am not dissapointed! He's 6'4" so it can be hard finding things to fit right. I got him a Large Tall and it fits perfect! Takes a couple weeks of wearing to break in the leather but it's brilliant and the detail is spot on.

A Perfect Retro

  • By Wayne from El Paso TX USA on Monday, April 17, 2017
  • Pros: see above
  • Cons: none
  • Review: I am somewhat familiar with the original - the individual was in the 8th Air Force, flew 17 missions over Germany in 1943 & 1944 and showed me his jacket many years ago - as far as I can tell, it is a perfect match - Thank you -

He looks great and raves about the fit

  • By Kathleen from Fredericksburg VA USA on Saturday, May 05, 2018
  • Pros: Heavy, warm, generous fit
  • Cons: None really
  • 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 .

I WOULD buy that jacket again...............

  • By 747 Captain Garrett from Joplin MO USA on Sunday, November 15, 2015
  • Pros: Excellent quality
  • Cons:
  • Review: This was a gift that I gave to my son, so don't know how he likes it. I am a retired 747-400 Captain with a major airline, and purchased a leather jacket in Seoul, Korea many years ago that I like (wear it often), but it does not come close to yours. The next time I purchase I will definitely purchase one of your leather jackets, as I really liked what I saw when I wrapped it for the gift. (I suspect that he really likes it)....................

Best A2 Jacket Anywhere

  • By William from Towson MD USA on Monday, May 01, 2017
  • Pros: Durable, warm, weatherproof
  • Cons: Heavier than some would like
  • Review: I have had several of the A2 designed jackets throughout my life, including one from the Korean war era and more modern designs and this jacket is by far the best constructed with the finest materials of them all. Hard to find, because they're somewhat out of style, I think this one is going to outlast me.

"A Keeper"

  • By Jerry from Walnut Creek CA USA on Tuesday, November 05, 2013
  • Pros: Warmth, feel and deep well placed pockets
  • Cons: I wish it were a little more "Antique" looking. It looks too new.
  • Review: Being that I haven't owned any other similar leather jackets I can't honestly compare it to others. I can only comment on the product at hand. It is a beautiful comfortable and warm jacket. The moment you remove it from the packaging and feel the weight you know that it is something special. The lining, the leather and zipper oozes quality. It appears capable of lasting you a lifetime. Glad I spent a little more than I was planning on.

Rapt! Great product Mate

  • By Little John from Melbourne, Australia mate on Thursday, February 21, 2013
  • Pros: terrific cut, great job on solid hide with detailing; oh that lining needs to be seen to appreciate
  • Cons: zipper operates from the opposite side for male clothing- but that is minor
  • Review: Gift from my darling wife of 43 years- a terrific present (Australia), great construction, the leather will wear and wear in well, the lining (wow), simply a class product, I am grateful for it! Good job fella's. The day I received it it was 102 degrees- not the weather to wear it in. I ride a Harley and look forward to winter riding. BROWN- cool- not black! Pockets- yeh! Fit- you advised me well, thank you. Delivery- to Australia in of 2 weeks! Very happy.

Great Jacket...High quality

  • By JT from Arkansas on Wednesday, November 28, 2012
  • Pros: High quality
  • Cons: Price , but you get what you pay for
  • Review: I was concerned about the fit, I am 6'2" tall and 240 lbs the 2XL Tall is perfect, the jacket is quite heavy as expected, it is a little stiff, but with any A2 jacket it will soften with use. Treat yourself, you won't be sorry.

  • Pros: Look, leather softness, lining print, pockets.

(I am sure he still is hanging on to the last one somewhere) but he needed to look more professional. This one met his expectations in every way, and that makes me happy! Might need a replacement in ten years or so.

Best jacket I have ever owned.

  • By Eric from Chino Hills CA USA on Monday, March 14, 2011
  • Pros: Quality material and workmanship
  • Cons: Poor sizing information
  • Review: I was looking for a jacket that fit me like a flight jacket should. Not baggy or hanging on me like a bad date. I read all the reviews and at the end I was more confused than ever. I decided to email Mypilotstore for their opinion since they must get these kind of questions all the time. I told them I was 6' 4" with arms like an orangutan. I gave them my waist size of 38 and my jacket size of 46. They emailed me back and told me I should go with XL or if I like wearing my jackets a little loose then a 2XL. So I ordered a XL and waited for it to arrive. All the time I was worried my UPS drive would make off with my jacket.

    It arrived quickly and I carefully open the box not wanting to scar it with my knife. It laid there beautifully wrapped in a clear plastic cover gently folded over once. The leather was shiny and had a new smell to it. I buried my nose into it and inhaled it's scent while all the time screaming like a kid who just got lucky on prom night. Then I reached into the box and immediately went to try it on. Arrrggg! Did they think I was covering the Good Year blimp with my jacket? The arm length was fine but clearly this jacket would have fit the most studliest Sumo wrestler.

    I called Mypilotstore and got a RA number to return the jacket for a smaller size. That was hassle free and they sent out a L right away. The large fits perfect and I can't wait to walk down Hollywood Blvd on a Friday night wearing this jacket. One thing though, this is LA and I am not stupid enough to wear a fine jacket like this on the streets of LA at night!

Just doesn't get any better than this!!

  • By Jim from Dry Ridge KY USA on Thursday, October 11, 2012
  • Pros: So incredibly comfortable
  • Cons: sleeves run just a bit long
  • Review: I've purchased several leather jackets, from various retailers. This one is, by far, head and shoulders above the rest!! The fit is incredible, the looks are great, and the weight is just right to keep you warm, but not weigh you down!! This jacket's so comfortable, you'll swear it was custom tailored, the fit is that good!! Well worth the price!!

A Jacket for a lifetime!

  • By A Customer from Arizona on Tuesday, March 27, 2012
  • Review: This jacket is just what I had hoped for: superbly constructed, the highest quality lambskin leather (hides are flawless), impeccable stitching and finish. It meets the highest expecations for craftmanship and quality. There is a heavy duty zipper which is quite stiff and needed a bit of work with some soap and light olive oil. Be prepared this is a fully lined jacket so it offers some real protection from the elements and will only look better with the patina of age. Runs true to size.

Top of The Line! As Beautiful and Rugged as a P-51 Mustang!

  • By Bruce Porcher from Corpus Christi TX USA on Monday, October 03, 2011
  • Pros: American-Authenic-Patriotic-Heavy Leather-Fit Perfect!
  • Cons: It is not cold enough in South Texas to wear it as much as I want!
  • Review: I am a Pilot, War Bird Enthusiast, Motorcyclist...I Love this symbol of our American Heritage. I researched and shopped hard before purchasing this jacket. After trying other A-2's half the price and some twice as much I settled on the one from "My Pilot Store." I was Ecstatic! Best purchase ever! From the Beautiful Leather Exterior to the Patriotic Silk Screened Interior, It is instantly recognized as top of the line. Excellent Quality Through Out! I am very pleased, plus it fits perfect. I am most proud of the date stamp on the label, "1945" truly America's "Finest Hour!" Thank you for your Quality of Service.

With some undercover it was warm in upper 20's - low 30's. In my opinion it is as advertised plus some. I always look forward to wearing it. Present pricing here cannot be beat also. Better buy now! Same jacket up to $795 elsewhere.

    Don't leave it where someone can grab it!

Top notch jacket

  • By Piloto66 from Redwood City CA USA on Saturday, December 06, 2014
  • Pros: Warm, comfortable, sharp looking
  • Cons: Beats me!
  • Review: Expected the highest quality in a flight jacket and was not in the least disappointed. Love the authentic look of the jacket and the quality of the leather in particular. Knowing from the reviews that it runs a little large, I ordered one size smaller than what I usually wear, and the end result is that I love the fit as well. The jacket is somewhat heavy, but that is not a negative as far as I am concerned. Its primary function is to keep me warm, and it will certainly do that.

Excellent quality

  • By JMM from San Francisco on Saturday, August 06, 2016
  • Review: Very well made, good looking classic leather jacket. The reviews say the sizes run large and that is true--that's great for us old farts but the guys in their 20/30s like a tighter fit. I bought a large for my son for his 30th birthday but he'd prefer a tighter fit so I'm keeping his and getting him a medium. I can't emphasize enough how high the quality is--American made really does mean something. Beautiful finish and color. And as the reviewers say, it's quite warm--I guess made for being at 25K feet with no heating. Only negative: there is a beautiful tribute sewn into the lining to WWII servicemen, as though the wearer is that pilot. I feel it's disrespectful to those who did serve for people like me who did not to wear this tribute. I've gotten over this by interpreting it as a reminder to thank my Dad in my memory and others who did serve in WWII and since. But I think the company, a high quality manufacturer, should think about the ethical implications of this to insure that they are not a part of encouraging people who did not serve to pretend they did.

If You're "Old-School," You've Just Found your Holy Grail!

  • By Mike from San Francisco Bay Area on Tuesday, October 24, 2017
  • Pros: Unequivocally well made; classic, historical and simple (not ostentatious), warm and enveloping
  • Cons: More inside labels informational patches than is necessary
  • Review: I was impressed with the fit and finish immediately. The leather (ah, and that smell...) actually has some nice give and softness for being new. It still needs to be broken in but it couldn't have a better initial feel. The jacket also has an overall warm and enveloping feel to it, which in the long run -- and irrespective of that it's also desirable that it is a classic A-2 replica -- this is why I covet a comfortable man's (and not a "designer") leather jacket. I always love snap-buttons on a jacket, and they're employed well with the largish side pockets (also side entry) and as I'm a button-down guy from way back, I LOVE the snap-button down collars. I also like the knit-gathering at the waist - it fits to your form, closes the bottom and doesn't just lay there like other outer garments. At 6'2"/215lbs I first purchased an XL but found that I almost "swam" in that. The re-order of a Large was absolutely perfect. Also, I wouldn't worry about getting a "tall" jacket if you're my height. My arms are long and the regular "L" size is just right. The manufacturer went slightly overboard with all the inside written historical panels and claims of being American made, but that's my only nit. The price is not inexpensive, but is what you would expect to pay for this kind of quality. If you feel you deserve it though and want this jacket to last, that should end that discussion. Beyond that, when I wear this jacket, it makes me feel like a million bucks and I am more than proud to own it (also, my dad was a Captain during WWII in the USAAC). That's about as sterling a testimonial as I can give, and well-deserved it is.

An absolute treasure

  • By Papi from So. Cal. on Sunday, November 18, 2018
  • Pros: Fit, quality of raw materials and construction, solid and substantial
  • Cons: The cut is fairly slim. I wear a size 44 and the L recommendation was right on the edge
  • 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!

Fantastic Jacket

  • Pros: Great fit, very heavy weight, completely happy with it.
  • Cons: None
  • 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.

Great Jacket

  • By steve from Deer Park WA USA on Friday, June 11, 2021
  • Review: I'm 6'2" and 200 lbs. and the jacket fits well. Ordered a large tall and the sleeve length is just a tad long but not a problem. The jacket is heavy and of high quality. Should be warm in cold weather. Looks great. As a prior military and airline pilot I think I have a jacket to last into my "sunset" years!

Fit is excellent. Quilted lining is exceptional. Agree with previous reviewers, needs snap at bottom of front storm flap.

This is the best leather jacket I've ever bought

  • By Bengt from Sweden on Friday, September 23, 2011
  • Review: It fits perfectly. What am I going to do with my old leather jackets now? Well they have had their day. The color of my new jacket is also wonderful. The entire apartment gets a pleasant smell of the jacket. The only thing I can say is that this is my best purchase ever. Sure the leather jacket cost a lot but what does it matter when you've got such a fine jacket.

This gift exceeded by husband's expectations

  • By Patricia from Plymouth MI USA on Thursday, December 15, 2011
  • Review: After researching this product online, I chose this website to order a replacement for my husbands 10 year old Avrix A-2 jacket. The leather on the old jacket was still in great condition, but the lining was shredded.

    From the initial phone call to place this new order with mypilotstore.com, to the expedient shipment, and excellent condition of the leather, I was thrilled. The order taker was efficient and friendly, and even price matched the jacket from another website.

    I echo all the other comments from satisfied customers. The internet really is excellent in letting future customers see the reviews from other purchasers.

    I would HIGHLY recommend purchasing from this website. You will not be disappointed.

I was referred to the manufacturer Cockpit USA and was asked to return the jacket for inspection. They promptly replaced the lining and returned the jacket to me at no charge. I really like the jacket and appreciate the outstanding customer service.

Too large, but fits the dream!

  • By Peter Steinberg from New York NY USA on Saturday, November 28, 2009
  • Pros: Great feel-good look!
  • Cons: Too large across the midsection.
  • Review: A review? Yeah, I'll write a review. It's a great look and a good feel. They said it would be roomy, but there's more space inside than my apartment. I stand a little over six feet, weigh about 192 pounds with a 36 inch waist. I wear a 46 sport coat so I bought the extra large as recommended, and while snug across my shoulders, there's a lot of space inside. I can wear a heavy cable knit, Irish sweater and a leather sport coat underneath without stretching the jacket. Okay, I admit it, when I added woolen long underwear it started to look like it fit. But I'm giving it five stars, because My Pilot is selling more than a jacket, they're selling a dream. For those of us who are still fighting the second World War, or wish we could have, this boosts the image like no other jacket could. I have to go now. My plane was shot down a few days ago, and I was the only one who got out. It's been raining here, and I'm trying to get home. Right now I'm crawling through the mud in some farmer's freshly furrowed field. Intelligence said there's a Nazi tank unit somewhere in the vicinity. So I've got to be careful. If God is with me, I'll make it back.

Fantastic Jacket

  • Pros: quality of supple leather, fit aroung shoulders and length
  • Cons: none
  • Review: Just received my Christmas present to myself-the A-2 jacket. Found your website by "surfing" for leather bomber jackets. It is a perfect fit, soft leather, just the right length and, for once, the right length sleeves. I am 6'1", 190" and hard to fit with size 44 coat but nothing between my shoulder blades. That, together with a 37" waist and 31" pant leg means everything I buy has to be altered. Not this guy-it's fantastic & "large" is right on. Thanks for a wonderful garment lined with nostalgia. WOW!!

  • Cons: wrap it more carefully
  • Review: This is my second antique lambskin A-2 leather jacket; the first was purchased directly from the Cockpit store in NYC. When my new jacket arrrived it was wrapped in a single plastic bag and a cardboard shipping box. The UPS driver left in on my front step in a rain storm. When I opened the soggy box, water had leaked into the plastic bag, wetting the leather jacket. I hung the jacket to dry overnight and decided to keep it, as they tend to become distressed with time anyway. This is an excellent jacket, but I would recommend better packaging for shippment.

High Quality

  • By Joeflyer from Memphis,Tn on Tuesday, September 05, 2017
  • Pros: Appearance, quality, warmth, durability
  • Cons: None
  • Review: After having owned one of these jackets for 15+ years, the lining is now tattered and torn. The jacket has been through many years of weather abuse during my aviation career. I was hoping to replace it with a new A2 jacket and was so happy to see mypilotstore have it in stock. I didn't hesitate to order a new one. After several days, MPS finally sent me notification the order had been processed. I received the beautiful new jacket a couple of days later. No physical defects were found on the jacket. The lining is absolutely stunning, and I know this jacket will keep me nice and warm for many years to come. You can hardly beat the quality and durability of this fine leather jacket. It is an investment you will never regret!

All That's Advertised!

  • By ERICK from SPRINGFIELD VA USA on Wednesday, April 13, 2011
  • Pros: Very roomy, very warm, outstanding leather and overall quality.
  • Cons: Sleeves are a bit long (see review).
  • Review: Jacket is truly superior quality. I've been looking for YEARS to find a replacement of one I had years back and this is it. Lambskin leather is of top quality - soft/durable. Lining pleasantly warmer than I had expected. Jacket is VERY roomy; don't think you need to "size-up" to fit layers underneath. Only potential negative is that for a large, I was surprised at the sleeve length - I wear a 17x34 dress shirt and the sleeves are a bit long for me - but not unreasonably so. Although I appreciate the flags/military Service logos on the inside the nose art seemed a bit over the top for me but a whimsical/nostalgic blast from the past.

Quality says "Made in the USA" all over it at first glance.

  • By Charles from Duxbury MA USA on Thursday, April 14, 2011
  • Review: I couldn't believe the fit was as perfect as it could possibly be. Just feeling the weight taking it out of the box told me my search of two years for this jacket was well worth the wait. Good thing I lift weights because the quality of the zipper requires a little muscle unlike the cheap hardware on what "we think" are good quality jackets.
    The lining alone draws interest and comments. I find myself draping it over a chair sometimes and just staring at it. This jacket is nothing but CLASS from every angle. It's a reminder of the quality in clothing this country once took pride in. The only thing I'm disappointed in is that I got it too late in the year because I want to wear it every day and the weather is getting warmer. It's the nicest piece of clothing I've ever purchased for myself in a long, long time.

  • Cons: wish the lining was removable
  • Review: This Bomber Jacket exceeds all my expectations by far. Having never ordered from "My Pilot Store" before I wasn't sure what to expect. The quality is superb, leather Quality is soft, supple. It has a heavy duty quilted lining, for cold climate use -- I live in Michigan. This coat has a top of the line zipper, heavy duty. Absolutely a great buy--well worth the money. Nice big pockets. Heavy duty snaps.I strongly recommend this Bomber Jacket to anyone looking for a high quality product.

Great leather Aviator jacket!

  • By Marie, wife of flying man Jeff from Green Bay WI USA on Friday, September 04, 2009
  • Pros: Quality, appearance and pure aviation enjoyment
  • Cons: It took a long time to exchange sizes. He was between a reg and a tall and I first went with tall. He is 6'1". Too big.
  • Review: The leather is wonderful and will likely get softer and more "antique" with time. Contrary to some reviews, both my husband and I LOVED the lining. It gives us a smile every time. Living in Wisconsin, he needs this jacket most of the year and will thoroughly enjoy it. Plenty of room for fleece under it.

Best quality.

  • By TYRONE from MURRIETA CA USA on Monday, November 21, 2011
  • Review: In my 50 years of owning leather jackets, This one has the best quality than most that I have seen, especially for the reasonable price. The leather is finished smooth and shiney the way that I like it. Since the leather is real and thick, the jacket is quite heavy. Great for cold weather with sporty style. Thanks for the lifetime quality. This will be an item to inherit to my son.

  • By David from Central IL USA on Wednesday, January 04, 2012

  • Cons: None yet
  • Review: I have been wearing this jacket for about 2 months(Nov. & Dec.) & I'm very pleased w/the quality. I live in north central IL & winters are typically cold. The jacket breaks the wind very well & with a fleece vest under it it keeps me fairly warm.

    I was right between a large and a medium size so I decided to go w/the large size so I could put a vest under it. It's plenty big enough for me. If I need to I can switch from fleece to a down vest.

  • By Shawn from Seattle, WA, USA on Tuesday, November 29, 2011
  • Pros: Looks,
  • Cons: -
  • Review: Every pilot should buy this jacket. It's a bit on the pricey side but absolutely worth it. After reading the reviews I was worried it might be too hot once its zipped up but its not that bad at all. Well at least here in the pacific northwest (50-60s). The leather takes a few days of wearing to soften up but till then it may be a bit stiff and uncomfortable. Can't beat the looks and its obvious you are making a point when you wear this into Starbucks on your way to the airport.

Great Quality Jacket

  • By Ken from Genesee MI USA on Monday, May 23, 2011
  • Pros: The quality of the leather and detailed construction
  • Cons: The collar and pocket cover are smooth leather rather than the antique lambskin look
  • Review: The Cockpit A-2 Jacket is the best quality that I had seen. I have been looking at other major competitor's Bomber Jackets but this one is the best.
    I love the construction especially the sturdy zipper. The heavy duty zipper is indestructible. The only problem that I see is a different type of leather used in the collar and pocket cover might consider to be a distraction. Overall I love the jacket's construction and fit.

  • By Cindy from West Richland WA USA on Tuesday, January 11, 2011
  • Pros: Size and quality of leather

  • Review: I purchased this jacket for my tall husband for Christmas, hoping it would be long enough in the sleeves, and it was! He is 6'-4" with a 37" sleeve length. He wears it every day, even in winter. I am impressed with the construction, but especially with the way the inside of the jacket has historic text and a picture of a pretty girl (which he of course discovered right away). Thanks for offering such a nice jacket. He looks great in it and I finally feel like I was able to give him a gift he really has enjoyed wearing.

He put this lambskin A-2 leather jacket on and has never looked back. He looks great and the fit is wonderful. I do recommend calling the company to get size advice as I would have ordered the wrong size if I based it on my husband's shirt measurements of 16 neck/32-33 sleeve length. The customer service associate advised a Large instead of a Medium and she was right.

  • Pros: Exquisite leather, exceptional fit, looks great.
  • Cons: I'm sitting here wracking my brain for a con. I can't even say it's too pricey, because it really wasn't,
  • Review: I just didn't know what to get my husband this past holiday season. He couldn't think of anything to put on his wish list, so I had to think of something that I know he would NOT put on a wish list. He loves old airplanes and has several games where flight is simulated. He is an avid reader of WWII, so I thought just maybe a jacket such as this would be appreciated. I'm so glad I listened to advice that I get a larger size than normally, because the fit is just perfect. His eyes lit up when he opened the package. He loves everything about this jacket, including the unique lining. It's warmer than it looks, by the way.

I took it from the box and it blew me away how nice it was. I read some of the reviews before I bought this item and some of the negatives people wrote I found none of this to be true.

This A-2 is Outstanding

  • By Sky Pilot from Oceanside, CA on Friday, November 19, 2010
  • Pros: Soft lambskin leather, stitching, pockets both inside and out, lining and authenticity are all outstanding.
  • Cons: none
  • Review: I never write reviews, so this jacket must be GOOD for me to take the time. I really, really like this jacket. Hours of research, both on line and calls to stores and factories, pointed me here and I'm glad I chose it. Very comfortable, very warm, and an excellent fit. I'm 5'11 and 230. The sizing chart was pointing me to an XL. I called the folks at MyPilot and they talked me down to a Large. A perfict fit. Glad I didn't go with the XL. My price from MyPilot was $85 less than the manufacture's retail outlet store in NY. This jacket is well worth the money.

  • Pros: Excellent fit. Beautifully made. Comfortable as any I've ever tried.
  • Cons: none!
  • Review: I haven't purchased - let alone seen - a decent product made in the USA in at least five years. So I was pleasantly surprised to find this gem on the internet. This jacket is beautifully made and fits me perfectly (I got the XL). I'm 6' 1", weigh 215 and wear a size 38 Levi Jeans (if that helps anyone with sizing questions), and this fits me as if it were tailor made. And let's not overlook the fact that it's as handsome a jacket as the fellow now wearing it... I may even buy a second one because, on those rare occasions when I've found a product this good and it came time to replace it, the company or quality was no longer available. Here's hoping that Cockpit thrives for years to come! Kudos to the fine folks at MyPilotStore.com for providing this product at the best price I've seen. And last, but not least, thanks to the sales rep at MyPilotStore who steered me to this size. His advice was spot on.

It is truely a jacket for all seasons. I've worn it in cold weather and fairly mild weather, and it has been comfortable in each case. The one suggestion I have is to remove the curled hanging loop from the neck and replace it with a straight leather strap like the one on the cotton A-2 jacket. The loop rubs the back of my neck and is somewhat bothersome. Otherwise, I'd consider it perfect!!

Best version of A2 leather jacket

  • By Robert from Glen Cove NY USA on Wednesday, June 01, 2011
  • Pros: Lamb leather
  • Cons: None
  • Review: I've seen the A2 done in various other leathers but nothing matches the soft, lustrous look & feel of lamb. This is exactly what I was looking for and the quality I was expecting.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • By Jennifer from Bay Area, CA on Thursday, January 07, 2010
  • Pros:
  • Cons: none
  • Review: This jacket is great in every way. I ordered it for my boyfriend for Christmas and originally got a medium... it seemed to run big though, and rather than chance it (there's a 30 day return policy and I'd ordered it in October), I returned it and got a small. Thank God, because the small was perfect. It's a beautiful, high quality jacket. Just keep in mind they tend to run larger in size.

SO Happy with this purchase!

  • By A Customer from Garden City NY USA on Tuesday, January 25, 2011
  • Pros: Online help with sizing was accurate, description true,
  • Cons:
  • Review: I purchased this jacket for my husband at Christmas-time, it was also a replacement of one stolen years ago. My husband is particular about these things and was completely happy with this jacket. (And it looks awesome on!) Excellent quality, heavy and ready to be broken in. He is difficult to fit generally, but the online help directed me to a perfect fit for him and throw in the speedy delivery both made this a low stress purchase for me-Thank you! Quality and style were just what I expected based on other reviews and product description. My husband is thrilled. Thanks so much!

  • Review: Everything about this jacket is of the highest quality. It is far superior in every way to any leather jacket I have ever owned. I like the fit, the heavy zipper, the weight of the leather, and the color. I also like the fact that it was made in America. It is a throwback to the day when American products were the best made products in the world. No one can go wrong in buying this jacket.

FAA flight instructor, seaplane pilot in the Virgin Islands, and flight coodinator for Pan American European ops. He lost his flight jacket after developing dimentia. I hoped he would like this jacket for Christmas but never believed it would be so quality and mean so much to him. He is so proud to wear this flight jacket. Thank you!!

A really great leather jacket

  • By Bart from Smethport, PA, USA on Sunday, January 23, 2011
  • Pros: It is very warm on a cold night and a great looking jacket.
  • Cons: Being new the leather is stiff but I'm breaking it in.
  • Review: I really like the jacket. I fits good and is very warm on these cold winter nights. It looks great both inside and out. As a matter of fact the lining is beautiful.

    The only negative thing is the new leather is stiff and it will take a little time to break it in so it really comfortable.

    Overall, I love it and I live long enought to wear it out I'll get another.

Excellent jacket, Great customer service

  • By Gary from Elma WA USA on Friday, March 17, 2017
  • Pros: WELL MADE garment, very comfortable, great looking.
  • Cons: None
  • Review: This is an exceptionally well made garment.
    The materials and workmanship are top notch, resulting in a jacket that will last a lifetime. The fit is perfect. I ordered a Small Long- which often is more "small" than "long", but the length on this is a full two 2 inches longer, and the arms are longer too- just what I wanted.
    The pockets are spacious. I appreciate the side-slit hand pockets that are integrated behind the front patch pockets. The two inside breast pockets hold everything I need (phone, pens, papers, other odds & ends).
    The elastic knit waist and arm hems are wide enough to be effective, but don't pinch or bind, so movement is not restricted.
    The customer service is outstanding. I originally ordered a medium long, but ended up returning it for a small. The folks at MyPilot didn't have one in stock so they contacted the manufacturer, who shipped it directly to me.
    Overall I couldn't be happier.

Aviation History You Can Wear

  • By A Customer from Colorado on Monday, January 16, 2012
  • Pros: USA Made, Unique historical features in the lining

  • Review: What a perfect gift for our sailor and aviation enthusiast! I've been looking for the "right" leather jacket for him for several years. What a blessing to find such a beautiful MADE IN USA product that celebrates service to our nation. It cost nearly as much as his first car - but I believe it made him just about as happy.

There is no A-2 any better

  • By Ron the Woodworker from Gardena CA USA on Tuesday, April 10, 2012
  • Pros: Every advertised feature is here, and better!
  • Cons: Would like a snap at the bottom by the zipper.
  • Review: It is even more than I expected. It was B/O for a month, but worth the wait. I had one in High School and wore it out. This one doesn't look like, or feel like I will ever wear it out. It is made out of great leather. The lining is striking. Pockets just where I like them. I still have a small problem with the zipper, but that will fix itself with use.

Great Leather A-2 Jacket made in USA

  • Review: Just got my A-2 Lambskin Jacket today. It's very tuff to find a Very Good Quality Leather Jacket made in the USA in a store today especially without paying an arm or leg. Was a bit iffy buying this off the Net, without seeing / trying it on first. They definitely keep the consumer in mind with pricing & shipping cost.

Great piece of American History!

  • By Buddy WIlliams from Shreveport LA USA on Thursday, February 19, 2009
  • Pros: Good looking, very well made, and made in America! Warm, but not too heavy for mild weather.

And the compliments are never ending anywhere I go! Should last a long time with minimal upkeep. I'm hot-natured by rule, but have been very comfortable even in the strange Louisiana up and down weather we have! (20's at night to upper 70's during the day)

Very Good Quality Leather

  • By Victor from Union NJ USA on Friday, January 30, 2009
  • Pros: It's worth the price
  • Cons:
  • Review: This is a really good quality A-2 leather jacket. It was alitte stiff around the collar at frist, but it broke in after a week. I received the jacket 2 days before christmas, when I ordered it on 12-16. It's getting the worn look real easily since i got it a month ago and wearing it. There's no need to go an extra size I got a 2xl, and can still wear a sweat shirt underneath. The lining is very decorative and nice, but I would have liked to have had a plain one if I had the choice. Thanks

I absolutely love this jacket and will probably buy a second one for myself

  • By Peter from Lake Forest IL USA on Friday, December 04, 2009
  • Pros: Everything
  • Cons: None
  • Review: I've already reviewed this product, but since the MyPilot Store asked me (last time I did it on my own), I'll rave about the jacket again. The jacket looks simply fabulous on me (that may have as much to do with my looks as the jacket - kidding), it's beautifully made, stylish, timeless, comfortable and georgous to behold even on the hanger in the closet. And I simply love the look and feel of the lining. This is the best leather jacket I've ever purchased. The sales rep I spoke with on the phone when I placed the order helped me determing which size to order. Evidently he and I are roughly the same size, so his recommendation of XL for my 6' 220 pound frame was spot on. Thanks again. The jacket is quite roomy - exactly the way I like it.

I just wish the small was smaller or that you offered an extra small. I am 5'5", 120 lbs. and would have preferred it a little smaller all around.

More than I was looking for!

  • By Dianne from Muenster TX USA on Thursday, January 31, 2008
  • Pros: Excellent quality! Easy ordering. Friendly, informative salesperson.

  • Review: This jacket met all my expectations, plus more. It was exactly what I was wanting for my husband. I shopped many stores on location and online, and lucky me, found mypilotstore.com. The site was easy to follow, full description of the jacket, and the photos were clear and impressive. When ordering the jacket, the salesperson contacted me immediately and they were very helpful, friendly, and professional. It was very close to the holidays, and I received the jacket with perfect timing. MyPilotStore added to a very happy holiday for me and especially my husband.

Great Jacket

  • Pros: Top quality tailoring and materials

I am sure the next size up would have been too big and would have had to be returned. The quality is fine and I have had many compilments on the jacket particularly since I added my squadron patches.

Absolutely Perfect

  • By A Customer from Newport News VA USA on Tuesday, September 02, 2008
  • Pros: Quality leather and lining.
  • Cons: no cons to speak of.

The fit is perfect for him and he will be able to wear a thick sweatshirt/ sweater underneath if needed. After Retiring, 34 yrs as an Army SF, R&D, Instructor, test pilot, he deserved only the best of jackets and this one is surely it.

Stunning quality!

  • By Michael from Cheshire CT USA on Tuesday, September 23, 2008
  • Pros: Everything! The leather, the details, the zipper, the pockets -- it's all stunningly well crafted.
  • Cons: Possibly the weight/size and the fact that it's so warm. But really, these are qualities of this type of jacket.
  • Review: This is my first leather jacket and it is amazing! Very thick, very heavy, just like an A-2 is supposed to be. My only complaint (if I was forced to have one) was that it's SO thick I haven't really had much chance to wear it with the weather still warm. If you're looking for a flight jacket though, this is GREAT!

Perfect Christmas Present for My 88 Year Old Dad

  • By Ed from Los Angeles, CA on Friday, February 05, 2010
  • Pros: Great fit - authentic - accurately sized - looks great - feels great
  • Cons: None whatsoever
  • Review: Really --- it was perfect for a myriad of reasons. Mom and Dad were married in 1943. Dad was in the Army Air Corp. Listening to his stories as a boy growing up were memorable including a B-24 crash he survived in Boise, Idaho. He is very patriotic and member of numerous related organizations. Since he is 6'2" I was afraid he would need a "Tall" which would have required back order. But the sales representative assured me that the Regular would work fine. And it did as the jacket is a totally perfect fit. The only problem was what to get Mom for an equivalent Christmas present for 2009. I decided to buy her a nice quilt and matching pillows and the like. It was the best thing I could think of for an extra special present. But nothing compares with the pride I felt to help Dad try that jacket on in Anderson, South Carolina, when I arrived from Los Angeles to celebrate Christmas at home on 12/26/2009. Extraordinary thanks is required and given to everyone involved at mypilotstore.com

Top quality jacket for a top gun pilot

  • By Steven from Columbus GA USA on Monday, January 26, 2009
  • Review: Loved this wonderful A-2 Leather Jacket!! My dad, a WWII pilot, is 86 years young and loves the feel, the warmth and the good looks of this A-2. The lining is great with artistic flair that is fun to show off. The weight is heavy but the leather is supple, unlike so many other supposed "genuine" A-2's. Very reasonable price as I saw the identical jacket on other sites/catalogs for $50 to $120 more.

Sturdy Construction

  • By Felix from Morristown NJ USA on Monday, March 03, 2014
  • Pros: Tough, Durable Construction
  • Cons: Some of the leather feels brittle
  • Review: I was a little disappointed at first that the jacket's grain was irregular and not consistent but then decided that it made the jacket look distinctive. Of a little more concern was that one of the sleeves had leather that felt stiff and brittle. I have been treating the entire jacket with mink oil in an effort to get the leather to soften and become more pliable. I feel that the bands at the ends of the sleeves and around the waist should be made of a better more durable quality, since my sleeve ends are already showing signs of wear, i.e. little cotton balls forming.

Large is LARGE

  • By David from Columbus OH USA on Sunday, October 30, 2011
  • Pros: Nice look and very historic. Probably very nice at 20,000 feet in an open airplane.
  • Cons: A bit large and very warm. Doesn't wear well in a car. Take it off before getting in.
  • Review: The quality of the jacket is nice. I bought a Large (normally I wear a 42L). This jacket has a ton of room and is not tight at all. The shoulders hang over but that makes the sleeves long enough. It is well insulated and is not a cool day jacket. It is a cold day jacket. I find it is bulky and hard to wear in my car. I wear it outside when I know it is going to be cold. I think a medium might have been a better fit. Since the jacket is so warm, I didn't wear it to really get a feel for the fit until the weather turned cold and past the date I could exchange it.

Lotta Jacket

  • By Thomas from Kemah TX USA on Friday, March 06, 2015
  • Pros: Lambskin

  • Review: Love the lamb skin feel. Would have liked a bit less lining/padding. If it's very cold you're good to go. A little heavy for my particular geography. Lining prints are a bit much too; it's just a jacket.  It's a keeper though.

Beautiful Pilot Jacket

  • By Dean from Maryland, USA on Friday, August 23, 2013
  • Pros: quality of leather, look
  • Cons: side pockets too far back
  • Review: Just received my jacket yesterday. This is my second order for the same jacket. I follow the size chart and order the first one medium, has to return and reorder for small which fits me very well, I like the leather very much although brand new it was soft, smell wonderful, large size zipper works fine, this jacket doesn't need "break in". The only minor disappointments is the knit cuffs and waist band thinner than they should be and the side pockets too far back to slip your hands in comfortably (I has other pilot leather jacket to compare). Overall I like it very much.

Looks great and feels great

  • By Arnold from Peachtree City GA USA on Tuesday, February 07, 2012
  • Pros: Fits well, keeps me warm in the wind & cold
  • Cons: Heavy, but it is a cold weather jacket
  • Review: This jacket was a Christmas gift from my girlfriend. The jacket is stiff out of the box and takes time to break-in, including the brass zipper. The leather is still a little stiff a month & half later but feeling softer each time I wear it. The zipper works well with bee's wax lubrication. Sizing is about where it should be. The extra large is a little large across the shoulders but the length and chest fit is correct. I am a little concerned about the cuffs & waist band. I hope they will hold their fit & not stretch out. Time will tell.

Nice Jacket

  • By Diane from Rochester NY USA on Monday, January 16, 2012
  • Pros: no snap at bottom of zipper and wimpy cuffs and waistband
  • Cons: Nice leather and great lining...good construction also made in the USA
  • Review: This is a very well made leather jacket. The lining is fun and my husband says it is very warm. I think the knit cuffs and waistband could be a little more substantial and the zipper is nice but a little difficult to zip. Also would have liked a little snap at the bottom of the zipper flap. Also want to mention that when my package arrived I pulled up to the house and saw it sitting on my doorstep and this box was out in the rain and was taped with one little piece of tape and the box was open so not a good packaging guys for a jacket of this price thank goodness you also thought to put it in a plastic bag.

Not going to last forever

  • By David from Manhattan Beach CA USA on Thursday, March 27, 2014
  • Pros: Beautiful, classy, comfortable, warm, very soft, just fantastic
  • Cons: Expensive, not very durable.
  • Review: It's a really nice jacket, the nicest I have ever owned. Also the most expensive. It is fantastic really. My only complaint is that it isn't very tough. The leather is so soft that when you bump against things it is easy to scratch and also easy to tear. i've had it two months and already I have a tear just behind the webing at the wrist. Also, the wind flap over the zipper has a tendency to stick up a little more than the rest of the jacket so there is a light brown line all along it where it has rubbed enough to wear off the tanned leather and show the lighter color underneath. I love the "Top Gun" feel of wearing it while riding my antique BMW motorcycle (very retro) but it isn't handling it as well as I wished. I'm thinking of retiring it from active duty to more dressy occasions (while it still looks and feels fantastic) and getting something more durable for the motorcycle and semi-everyday wear. I'm 6 feet tall and 220 lbs and I really like the 2x size, slightly big on me which I like and so I can wear a thin sweater underneath on really cold days on the motorcycle. I probably wouldn't buy this jacket again because it is very expensive without being very durable. I'd love to find the same jacket in cow leather. It is definitely 5 stars except for the price and durability. I love everything else about it.

Wonderful Jacket with only small changes suggested.

  • By David A from Sunland CA USA on Monday, January 16, 2012
  • Pros: Great heavy duty jacket.
  • Cons: needs snaps on the flap over the zipper to help keep in closed in the wind.
  • Review: The jacket is first rate and I'm very pleased. I had another A-2 about 20 years ago that went to an old girl friend and I believe it had some snaps on the front as well as the zipper. As I like to wear the jacket while I ride my motorcycle, the snaps would be a welcomed addition to this classic article and would help keep the flap (which could be just a bit wider as well) closed against the wind. Besides that, I'm getting complements all the time.

Great gift!

  • By Michael from Northfield NJ USA on Wednesday, January 04, 2012
  • Pros: Leather and style are lovely
  • Cons: Runs really small
  • Review: Love the jacket! It's a lovely reminder to my husband of the jacket his grandfather gave him as a boy. My only complaint was that a 3x is not true to size. Was told it ran small but the 3x just fit not too much breathing room.

It's what they say it is

  • By Thomas from Nevada City CA USA on Tuesday, May 31, 2011
  • Pros: Priced right , made right and fits right
  • Cons: I wish it had that worn look
  • Review: I'm not a pilot but as an old Air Force brat I always wanted a bomber jacket and have purchased a few through the years.This one is the real deal, it's heavy like it is suppose to be,most of the leather bomber jackets that I tried or looked at were very nice looking but were made of a very thin light leather. One I had tore when holing a glass door open with the forearm of my jacket. I was glad that my wife was there to see it happen, as she had paid 500 bucks for it.

  • By LG from Aiken SC USA on Friday, February 12, 2010
  • Review: I bought one about exactly like this one, same inside embroidery stitching, same inside front panels, etc. about 15 years ago from Ham.-Schm. in Chicago. This one is about the same but I think the leather seems thinner. It is definitely not the same weight overall but my husband still likes it. I bought this new one so that I can take the other one in to get some repair work done on the lining.

I will recommend this product to others

  • By Richard from Cherry Hill NJ USA on Thursday, January 19, 2012
  • Pros: High quality leather
  • Cons: The thickness of the leather is not even especially at the cuff.
  • Review: This is a High quality product and looks good.   The only thing that I am not happy is that the leather at the cuff is thin and wrinkle.

A bit disappointing

  • By Paul from Elm Grove WI USA on Wednesday, November 28, 2012
  • Review: The style is authentic and terrific. Also, like the insulating factor and silk lining.

    The leather itself is very stiff and does not bend to the body when seated. I'm thinking of having it conditioned to make it softer.

  • By Chuck Moles from Springfield, Illinois on Tuesday, October 25, 2011
  • Pros: It's a nice replica for those interested in WWII.
  • Cons: It doesn't have the same quality as the same jacket made about 15 years ago by the same company.
  • Review: Unlike most other reviewers, I've been somewhat disappointed in this jacket. It was purchased to replace basically the same jacket I purchased about 15 years ago. At the time, Cockpit went by the name Avirex. As a result I have something to compare the new one to. The new one seems "cheaper"--for want of a better word. The zipper is reluctant to start and always snags half-way up. In the earlier version, the grain on the outside was little more pronounced, the pockets on the inside were larger and lower for easier access (getting my wallet in and out of this one is a nuisance!), and the little extras like the pin-up (which was much cuter in the earlier version) and the Italian lira were both protected by a plastic cover. I know that's a little thing, but the reason I bought this newer version is because the inside of my original jacket is mostly in tatters now. So, the little extras here will eventually be torn and fall off.

Nice Leather, Cuff Material Cheap

  • By Gary from Utah on Friday, January 07, 2011
  • Pros: Nice Leather
  • Cons: Cheap Knit Components
  • Review: Leather is beautiful and soft. Been wearing it since christmas and the cuffs and waistband are already pilling up and looking kind of ratty. I don't think it will last even close to how long the leather will. Not sure if I got one with a bad batch of Knit. Seems a bit thin and whimpy for such a heavy coat.

A Bit Disappointed

  • By Chuck from Springfield IL USA on Saturday, November 19, 2011
  • Pros: It's still a very nice jacket, especially for someone interested in WWII.
  • Cons: It doesn't have the same quality as the same jacket made about 15 years ago by the same company.
  • Review: I bought this jacket back in the 90's when the company still went by the name of Avirex. I bought this one because the inside of the earlier one is mostly in tatters. Because of the earlier purchase, however, I have something to compare this one to. Therefore, I might be a bit harsh. The workmanship doesn't appear to be as good on the newer jacket. The texture of the lambskin is more slick, the zipper is hard to get started and then snags halfway up, and the earlier version featured protective plastic coverings on the pin-up (who was cuter before) and the Italian lira. Those nice little touches made the jacket a little more fun to put on.

Great look! Bad smell...

  • By Holly from Orem UT USA on Monday, December 27, 2010
  • Pros: Beautiful look, construction, and feel! Authenticity is a big plus!
  • Cons: Fishy smell hard to get over.
  • Review: I bought this for my husband for Christmas. When I opened the box and took off the plastic cover I was washed over with the smell. I had to hang the coat in the garage for 5 days to let it freshen and off-gas. It is wearable now, but no nice smell of leather. For a few days I was scared I had wasted my money.

Nice warm jacket but

  • By Dan from Road Warrior on Saturday, October 17, 2009
  • Pros: Warm, well stitched, quality lining.
  • Cons: Bad leather
  • Review: I really looked forward to getting this jacket but was disappointed with the leather. It has stripes where the leather had not adhered to the backing causing it to look like a large cat had scratched the lamb before they skinned it. Other than that, the jacket is well stitched, warm, and a quality item. It's just too bad they used factory second leather on my jacket.

  • By A Customer from south shore of Lake Erie on Saturday, February 03, 2007
  • Pros: lovely leather texture
  • Cons: disappointing leather weight, crooked label, pilling waistband
  • Review: While the leather of which the jacket is constructed is very attractively textured, I am disappointed by its light weight compared to the Avirex Varsity jacket that I have been wearing and enjoying for years; and by the facts that the label most visible when the jacket is hanging is sewn in crooked, and the inside of the jacket's elastic waistband is pilling most grievously. Altogether I do not think I really got my money's worth.

Disappointed

  • By Tom Poppleton from Nevada City California on Tuesday, January 14, 2014
  • Pros: Looks good feels good and has the heavy wieght to it
  • Cons: It doesn't hold up to light everyday conditions
  • Review: I bought this jacket a few years ago thinking that it would be the last leather jacket I would ever need or want to buy. Being that it's made in America and all. With in a year a little V shape tear in the kidney area showed up. I managed to patch it. Then a few months later more little breaks showed up around the pockets and one on the sleeve. Now I know that this jacket isn't bullet proof but I'm 63 and don't work on cars and run around like I did when I was younger to create the kind of damage the my jacket. I've owned other leather jackets though the years and none of them just came apart on their own. Maybe it's because it's lamb and not cow hide it did this. I any case I'm out the money and so much for buy American. The last time I wore my lamb skin jacket a guy asked me how old was my jacket about 15 years , he guest before I could tell him that no it's only 3 years old. The bad part of this story is that I really liked this jacket and had high hopes that it was the last leather jacket I'd want to buy.
