Eighty years since it was first introduced to the U.S. Navy, the G-1 leather bomber continues to reign supreme as the current uniform issue jacket in Naval Aviation. Most notably known as the famous flight jacket worn by Tom Cruise in Top Gun, this jacket is constructed from 100% antique lambskin of the finest quality, full fitted and featuring a bi-swing back for comfort and ease of movement. Crafted to perfection down to the intricately embroidered pilot’s battle map on the inner lining, the jacket also has a real mouton sheep shearling collar which can be removed along with knit cuffs, waistband and two under arm grommets for ventilation. Timeless in style and considerate in maintaining all authentic detailing, the Navy G-1 is one of the many gems in the Cockpit USA crown!
