Nice jacket but pockets too small.

  • By Rando from Iowa on Sunday, April 05, 2015
  • Pros: Styling
  • Cons: pockets, lining
  • Review: Heavy stiff leather which probably would have softened had I kept it. The jacket is as described on the product page and looks nice. Overall was a nice jacket except for what turned out to be a fatal flaw - the hand warming pockets are just too small and the stitching began to tear after only a couple of weeks. I play guitar and know my hands are average size, maybe even a bit smaller.

    The only other negative was that the lining is cloth and not satin so the coat tends to pull your long-sleeved clothing along with it when you put it on. Not a big deal though.

    I will say mypilotstore was great to work with in arranging the return and refund.

Great Jacket

  • By Frank of the Skies from New York on Wednesday, February 01, 2012
  • Pros: Great construction. Authentic styling.
  • Cons: Arrived badly creased. Pilling on cuffs and waistband.
  • Review: The jacket is as described and is well made. The leather isn't quite as buttery soft as I had expected though. It sort of squeaks when I bend my arms but I imagine it needs to be broken in. The only real negatives I can report is that the jacket arrived with a really nasty crease in the back that after weeks of wear is still there. I've tried steaming but it doesn't work. The other gripe I have is that after only a few weeks of light wear the knit cuffs and waistband are beginning to pill.

    I don't want to be all negative about this jacket though. For the price, I'm very satisfied with my purchase and would highly recommend the Cockpit A-2.

Disappionted with color

  • By Steven from Monroe WA USA on Monday, February 05, 2018
  • Pros: Well made and fit well.
  • Cons: The color is awful, almost black instead of brown.
  • Review: The jacket was well made and fit just fine. But, it was supposed to be brown. The jacket I got was a very dark shade of brown, if in fact, very nearly black. I am not happy with the color.

Nice looking jacket, but not functional

  • By David from Brandon SD USA on Monday, January 02, 2012
  • Review: This is a very nice looking jacket, with quality leather. I have had good comments from a lot of people. However, I found the pockets are too small. I can't put a small pair of leather gloves in the side pockets. The inside pen pockets are too deep. Put a pen in there and you will be using your leatherman to get it out.

    The last thing I did not like about this jacket, is it doesn't have a bit of insulation. But then again, since I can't carry a pair of gloves with it, I won't be using it for the winter.
