Cockpit USA has recreated the 1960’s vintage G-1 flight jacket of the navy test pilots of China Lake. A unique piece of naval aviation seldom seen anywhere except here at Cockpit USA, featuring a variety of patches of various aircraft carriers that a naval aviator would have served on, even a whimsical “beer” patch that would often be seen at an officer’s club on Friday nights after a long day of flying. The leather has been specially aged to simulate years of wear and insignias that would indicate where the prior jacket’s owner would have served.

• Crafted from specially aged and tanned goatskin leather
• Lightweight silky lining
• Aged mouton shearling collar
• Patches stylized by the Navy test pilots of China Lake
• Bi-swing back
• Front zipper over a USN wind flap
• Two front 1950s style flap pockets
• Side entry pockets
• Two inside snap close pockets
• Knit cuffs and waistband
• This is a regular fit jacket
• Available in brown
• Proudly made in the USA.

    It all started with my Movie Heroes Top Gun G-1. But these things are like potato chips, and just one isn't enough. I fell in love with the style and quality, and started to check out the other G-1s for some variety.

    The China Lake is just an amazing jacket. Comfort, style and absolutely built to last. Like so many Cockpit products, the China Lake is beautiful enough to be used in a movie, but unlike most film costumes, this is made to be used and abused and handed down to your kids (only if they really deserve it, of course).

    I like my clothes to fit well. I am 5'11", about 175 to 180lbs, and found that the size 38 was absolutely perfect. (Posted on 2/8/2016)

    Beautiful aged goatskin and its smell... variety of US naval patches, all give a special and unique look of this jacket. A true piece of US naval pilots history! While you wear it you know it's not just a random piece of garment. It makes you feel better in every day routine and it makes you think about glorious history of US navy, past times, carriers, planes, all brave missions and all the brave man who served for the country. Thanks to Clyman family who are the only one in this planet who know how to make a real american immortal piece of garment! (Posted on 12/11/2015)
