The A-2 Leather Flight Jacket was developed for the U.S. Military in the 1930’s for the U.S. Army Air Corps and to certain elite paratrooper units, like the 82nd and the 101st Airborne Units during WWII. As legendary and distinctive as it was during the Second World War, it provides the same prestige and legendary-style today as it did then, but with some updates, like adding hand warming pockets under each cargo pocket and making this special edition of the A-2 from one of the World’s toughest leathers, the Cape Buffalo leather that meets the exact same U.S. Military Specs as the regular leather flight jackets.
