A proper nice flight jacket, summer model. Real deal USAF stuff, very high quality. Easily used as a winter jacket too, just throw stuff underneath.

Since the Second World War, flight jackets have been short blouse-style things, and for a reason; inside, airplanes are crammed spaces filled with all sorts of fiddly stuff, which means a long coat would get in the way pretty quickly. And thus we have another example of military kit insipred civilian fashion. Except these are real US Air Force garments, and made for serious use.

Two front pockets and one sleeve pocket, just enough space to cram in your hands and cigarettes in. Zipper closure, never to be pulled all the way up. The zipper is metal, because a plastic one could melt shut. Most have epaulettes, some might have had them removed. Also, there's at least a few velcro bases for insignia on every jacket.

This summer model is simple, lightly lined and made of Nomex. Unlike on cheap modern reproductions, the fabric on these is seriously strong. Not still quite a jacket you would love to wear in hot weather.

Size info

Sizes in the US system, with recommended centimetre measurements in the brackets, converted directly from the US sizes on the jackets. If you fall between sizes, pick the larger one if available.

Now these didn't have any indication of suitable heights, so we measured the sleeve on every size from the shoulder seam to the end of the cuff. Here's how they go:

  • Small, Medium and Large: 64 cm ("Regular")
  • X-Large and 2X-Large: 68 cm ("Long")

Our model here is size 174 / 95 cm, wearing a size Medium jacket.

Unfortunately we can't control the sizes we get in stock.

Condition

Used, but in nice overall shape, nothing to gripe about apart from standard signs of use. Yes, these are "expensive", but this stuff is just super, and probably the prices won't be going down. One manufacturer seemed to be pretty prevalent, and that was Propper.

Availability

These are available now, but this might change any time, we really don't know. What we do know is we'll never get large amounts of these in stock, because expensive stuff is also expensive when it's just lying on the shelf. However if you're looking for a traditional flight jacket, you will not be disappointed with this!

Erinomainen rotsihan tämä on kevät- / syyssäihin. Velcro-paikat ratkoin irti ja eipä niistä kummoisia jälkiä jäänyt.

Tilaamani takkiyksilö on todella hyvä kuntoinen ja näyttä lähes uudelta - kulumisen jälkiä ei juuri ole havaittavissa. Takki on selvästikin erittäin korkealaatuista tekoa; sattaa olla jopa laadukkain takki, joka itselläni on koskaan ollut ja istuvuus on suorastaan erinomainen. Yksi parhaita ostoksia, jonka olen vuosikausiin tehnyt.

Takki ei hävennyt uudelle, kun sen päälleni sain, mutta jostain syystä on nyppääntynyt todella nopeasti tässä muutaman kuukauden aikana ja näyttää jo todella käytetyltä ja vanhalta. Harmittaa, kun ehdottomasti komein takki mitä minulla on ollut. Sen verran päheen näköinen kuitenkin päällä, että miehelle tilaan samanmoisen, kateellisena kun käy kokeilemassa vähän väliä takkiani päälle.

Army surplus

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
