G-1 Bomber Jackets
The G-1 jacket was introduced by the U.S. Navy during the 1930’s. The G-1 bomber jacket has a mouton collar fur, and features a bi-swing pleated action back that allows for a greater range of movement. Quickly achieving the same notoriety as the Army Air Corps A-2 jacket had, the G-1 bomber jacket was for a time discontinued by Congress because its commercial popularity had become so immense that it overwhelmed the supply. The G-1 flight jacket’s popularity didn’t fade, however, as it still caught the public eye in movies and television, with Cockpit USA’s own jackets being featured prominently in 1986's Top Gun. This enduring popularity has remained to this day.
As a proud supplier of G-1 jackets for both the military and Hollywood for over four decades, Cockpit USA continues to set itself apart due to their quality craftsmanship, superior materials, and commitment to maintaining an era-accurate appearance.
