The Cooper Original G-1 TOP ACE Cape Buffalo Jacket:




NOTE: The location of the patches on the Limited CWU-45P are correct; the thumbnail Trailer film has been horizontally flipped.

The original TOP GUN Movie came out in 1986 that starred Tom Cruise as Maverick, who is back in the TOPGUN 2 Movie. In the 1986 movie, Maverick wore a Goatskin G-1 Leather Aviator’s Jacket, while riding a Kawasaki Ninja GPz900R motorcycle. In TOP GUN 2 Movie (scheduled to be released in November 2022), Maverick is wearing a CWU-45P Nylon Flight Jacket, while riding a Kawasaki H2R supercharger. This is featured in the YouTube Trailer above. But for those who prefer the look of leather, we took our original Cooper G-1 Cape Buffalo TOP ACE Leather Aviator’s Jacket and put on the very same patches that are on the CWU-45P Nylon Flight Jacket that Maverick (Tom Cruise) is wearing in the second TOPGUN Movie.


But for the motorcycle enthusiast, We, at THE QATSPY® (The Yankee Professional Sports & Traditional Apparel Quarters), have your SIX. We can have either the HARLEY-DAVIDSON or the INDIAN MOTORCYCLE HEAD back rocker patch professionally sewn on to the back of the G-1 Leather Aviator’s Jacket for those that like to have both the biker jacket look on The TOPGUN NAVY Aviator’s Jacket with that 100- Mission Look.



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.


I’m shown here with my INDIAN Scout Bobber 60 Motorcycle where I’m wearing the same Cape Buffalo Leather Flight Jacket, but in the A-2 Leather Flight Jacket version that is issued to the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, and the elite paratrooper units. Either jacket makes for the true Sports Jacket that travels everywhere you travel, whether for meeting with business clients or for casual wear while meeting friends.


You can have the same distinction, feel, and look in that Brown color, that is tough, rugged, and durable that is proudly worn by our U.S. Military.


There’s nothing that is more distinctive and legendary than the G-1 Leather Jacket with the TOPGUN patches, like the one worn by Maverick in the TOPGUN 2 Movie.



Shown above is the original G-1 Leather Aviator’s Jacket that U.S. NAVY Aviators wore, The US WINGS® G-1 Leather Jacket is that same mil-spec issued to military personnel.


US WINGS® & Walt Disney World Connection

The Indiana Jones-Style Jacket

For those that like the Indy-Style leather jacket, we also carry the same jacket that appeared in the Indiana Jones movie and is furnished to Walt Disney World in the daily production of Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular. If it can withstand the daily productions of Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, the jacket will meet the needs of the biker who will depend on it for the protection that the G-1 Cape Buffalo Aviator Jacket provides.

I personally have the CAPE BUFFALO Model A-2 Leather Flight Biker’s Jacket that I wear to various functions that I routinely attend, representing either US WINGS® and/or THE QATSPY®. You can also check out the US WINGS® LIMITED A-2 CAPE BUFFALO BIKER’S FLIGHT JACKET, just by clicking on the link.
