The MA-1 was designed by the United States Air Force around 1950 to serve as an intermediate weight flight jacket for use all year. This was accomplished by manufacturing the MA-1 from very high quality nylon fabrics and polyester interlinings. The light weight nylon design allowed the pilot in warm weather to wear the jacket open and be comfortable; upon entering the aircraft, the pilot could zip the MA-1 closed and be afforded ample protection against the cold conditions encountered in flight.
There are two front pockets, two inside pockets, Indian orange lining, elasticated waistband collar and cuffs and a chunky metal zip.
This is a unisex jacket so the sizing might be different to what you might usually expect so please Click Here to view measurements and advice.
