G-1 Flight jacket

  • By Gunner from Edenton NC USA on Wednesday, May 18, 2022
  • Pros:
  • Review: I loved my Flight Jacket. But by about 1990 (Retired in 1983) it had shrunk (LOL), so I gave it my son. Now it's 32 years later and I saw your web site. Bingo. It looks great it. It feels great, it fits well. Ask me again in Nov - won't be wearing it until than. It's warm in NC this time of the year.

Just like my original from the US Navy!!!

  • By Christopher "Sonic" Cline from North Bend, OR on Tuesday, April 26, 2022
  • Pros: Real Mouton Sheep Fur Collar, genuine Goatskin leather, fits very well, absolutely accurate in details to my original Navy issue jacket, beautiful stitching and high quality materials and a lot of nice touches in "presentation", even coming with a hanger with an extended hook to allow for the high collar.
  • Review: I joined the U.S. Navy back in 1989 and am a Gulf War Veteran (Operation Desert Shield/Storm). My original Navy G-1 jacket was one of the items which was lost (stolen?!) from my belongings when they were shipped home by the Navy when I transferred from active to reserves. I have wanted to replace the original jacket ever since.
    I did quite a bit of research and pricing and read many, many reviews, trying to determine the best quality, most authentic jacket for the price. I decided on this jacket. The jacket is just beautiful, with high quality goatskin leather and a real mouton sheep fur collar. All the colors, the dark brown leather, the brown mouton collar, brown waistband and wristbands and the brown lining are exactly right. It is extremely comfortable to wear. Sizing seems correct.
    I give a 5 Star rating to Cockpit, USA for manufacturing an incredible jacket! It lives up to expectations, is exactly like the one I got when I was in the Navy and their attention to detail is superb, with a lot of nice touches too!
    I absolutely recommend the Cockpit, USA "US Navy Issue Mil Spec Type G-1 Jacket" to anyone who wants to replace their lost Navy issue G-1 or simply replace one that no longer fits, but also to those who just want a high quality, genuine G-1 jacket at a reasonable price! This jacket is the REAL DEAL!
    I have created an unboxing/review video and posted it on my channel on YouTube and seen below.

The Real Thing!

  • By Daniel from Sun City CA USA on Monday, April 25, 2022
  • Pros: Genuine design and materials, quick shipment.
  • Review: This is the real jacket, just like the one I was issued in 1971. Goatskin, mouton collar. I think the leather is a bit smoother and shinier than the original, is all. Nice and thick, though. The stretchy waist and cuffs seem more durable than the old one.
    Quick fulfillment of the order, too.
    I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a jacket faithful to the original design.

PERFECT FIT!

  • Pros: Nice workmanship, quality materials and a great fit.
  • Review: Nice workmanship, quality materials and a great fit. The zipper was a little rough at first but, OK now. I was looking for a jacket like the one my husband had in high school (1960's), military surplus. I was thrilled to find one in an 'up-dated' size. Thanks.
