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.

Too lightweight

  • By David W Anderson from Chillicothe OH USA on Wednesday, June 03, 2020
  • Review: I have an old jacket from the 1960's and was trying to replace it. The new jacket is like "flight jacket Lite". It is not nearly as heavy, warm, or durable as the original. I guess they don't make them like they used to.

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.

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.
