We at QATSPY® (Quapaw Aviation Tiger Supply) Outfitters Company provides actual G-1 Leather Flight Jacket based on the original G-1 Leather Flight Jacket worn by the American Volunteer Group (AVG) that flew the P-40 Warhawk Aircraft.

There’s nothing that is more distinctive and legendary than the Leather G-1 Leather Flight Jacket with patches, like the one worn by Tom Cruise in the original movie TOP GUN. But it was World War Two Veterans returning home from World War 2 that made the G-1 Leather Flight Jacket the iconic jacket that it became, shown below. These Veterans used the G-1 Leather Flight Jacket for that distinctive look with patches.



You can have the same distinction, feel, and look in that Antique, old-world Brown color, that is tough, rugged, and durable, and that describes the US WINGS® Cooper Sportswear G-1 Cape Buffalo COOPER Sportswear Jacket. This Jacket can be personalized with a name (limited to 14 characters) on the left front panel of the jacket above the Flying Tiger Leather Patch.

For those that are Bikers, or Bikers enthusiast, we offer both the vintage-style Harley-Davidson or the vintage-style Indian Motorcycle rocker patches shown below. (These two vintage-style patches are purchased separately at CHECKOUT), and are professionally sewn on to the back of The Limited G-1 Cape Buffalo Biker’s Flight Jacket by US WINGS®.



These two top and bottom rocker patches can be purchased separately at CHECK OUT, just by selecting the option of the vintage-style Harley-Davidson Biker’s Patch or the vintage-style Indian Motorcycles Biker’s Patch. The listed price for each patch includes the rocker patch and sewing on of the patch onto the Jacket, per customer request.


The Thickness of the Cape Buffalo Leather series jackets is 1.2 to 1.3 mm. that has the weight between 4.5 to 4.8 pounds.  And yes, all of our Jackets are Drum dyed, and this Jacket is a perfect all-season jacket for the open road jacket that can stand up to all weather conditions.



Shown above for EXAMPLE ONLY is the Limited A-2 Cape Buffalo Leather Biker’s Flight Jacket that is perfect for those open road journeys, but provides the quintessential, classic look that can be worn with either blue jeans or US WINGS® chino khaki pants, that makes it the classic jacket that it is.
