Don’t Depend on Santa – Buy yourself a Leather Jacket

It’s the holidays – treat yourself to the pilot jacket you’ve always wanted

Your pilot persona isn’t complete until you have a pilot’s leather jacket. You’ve earned it; you deserve it – and these two jackets from Sporty’s have earned four stars plus from pilots who own one.

The Classic Leather Bomber Jacket was designed more than 80 years ago as the original A-2 and was standard issue. Since then, generations of pilots have made this jacket a cultural icon, crafted with the original Mil-Spec #A2-98 as a guide.

The leather is long-lasting and easy to clean. With brass zippers and lined hand warmer pockets, this jacket has a loose fit with a tight-fitting waist to block the wind. The three-piece underarm gusset makes for easy arm movements.

The Modern Leather Flight Jacket updates the classic A-2. Officially referred to as the AN-J-3, this modern jacket removed the epaulets and added a bi-swing back and underarm gusset to make it easier to move around the cockpit. This jacket is crafted from darker brown leather, with a full cut for a looser fit. Along with the hand warmer pockets, this jacket has an inside snap-close pocket.

“Either of these jackets will look great on any pilot,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. “Add a pair of aviator sunglasses and you’ll be the sharpest pilot on the airport.”

Sporty’s also offers a complete jacket restoration service, ensuring your jacket will last for decades.

Both jackets come in sizes Small to 2XL with additional long sizes available in the larger sizes. For a limited time The Classic Leather Bomber Jacket [3051A] and the Modern Leather Flight Jacket [6487A] are each available for $225 which is $100 off the normal retail price of $325.00. All Sporty’s products may be ordered at sportys.com or by calling 1-800-SPORTYS.
