I have always wanted one of these babys I am an X USAF Jet Mechanic, and always admired the MA1 jackets the fighter pilots wore. I was very impressed at the look of the two I ordered, they looked absolutely authentic, and they wore even better than they looked. They are fantastically warm though light in weight but they are built real well and stand up to the heavy duty activity in my work In addition to being a businessman I am a fencing coach target shooter and salt water fisherman so you can be sure my MA1s get a good workout. I want more of these and will order again. I plan to find some of my old USAF unit patches and recreate what one of these jackets would have looked like when I was active duty.

I just got my jacket after a month of waiting. It was on backorder. Big deal. When I got the jacket I tried it on and it fit prefectly. I took everyone's advice to order a size bigger. I am waiting til nightfall to try it out in colder conditions. But overall it is a great jacket.
BETTER THAN EXPECTED
GREAT JACKET, MUCH BETTER THAN I HAD EXPECTED. I USUALLY WEAR AN XL, BUT BECAUSE OF OTHER REVIEWS I ORDERED AN XXL AND GLAD I DID, PERFECT FIT. I AM VERY HAPPY...AND DELIVERED IN 3 DAYS!!!!
The shiping was fast, its very warm even in the worst conditions, heavy duty construction and good fit, simply the best flight jacket for under 30
