THE Sporty’s Wright Bros. Classic A-2 Leather Bomber Jacket
The Classic A-2 Leather Bomber Jacket was first issued to the U.S. ARMY Air Corps in June of 1931, to replace the button-up A-1 Leather Bomber Jacket that didn’t have the zipper front, elastic cuffs, nor the elastic waistband to protect pilots. These features on the A-2 offered the pilot additional protection and enclosure from the elements. The A-2 Leather Bomber Jacket is essentially the same as when it was introduced in 1931.
This Classic A-2 Leather Bomber Jacket soon became an icon among pilots, airborne units during World War II, that Hollywood actors wore in those classic movies from the 1940’s and 50’s. These A-2 Leather Bomber Jackets are a great sport jacket that can stand up to the wear and travel and still look good with khakis or blue jeans for business or leisure wear. These are great jackets to be worn to sporting events for that great look and feel, as noted in the image gallery.
I even wear my A-2 Leather Bomber Jacket when I fly for business or on leisure trips that I wear with either khakis or blue jeans. These A-2 Leather Jackets can hold up to the rigors of travels and still maintain their shape and looks. These jackets are robust enough that I even wear my A-2 while riding my INDIAN Scout Motorcycle to and from our hangar.
