Great service and a great product! Review by Matthew
Quality

I was so nervous ordering a jacket from across the country. I’m a big guy who’s usually buying XL or XXL in my clothing. I doubted I could find the right fit without trying coats on endlessly.
I also yearned to own an A2 as worn by Steve McQueen in the Great Escape or Gregory Peck in 12 O’clock High. And I wanted mine in black, just like theirs.
I rolled the dice and emailed Cockpit USA with my measurements. With lightening speed, Shanice gave me the best sizes for three of my favorite jackets based on the info I gave her. I pulled the trigger on the A2.
The jacket arrived 1 week later. I was afraid to open the box in case there was a problem. But when I opened the box and saw the beautiful A2 in there, I broke out into the widest grin. And then the moment of truth: trying it on.
It fit perfectly. It looked fantastic on me. I couldn’t believe it. Thank you so much for delivering on a great product with wonderful service! (Posted on 12/2/2019)
Review of item I've purchased Review by Brant

Quality of A2 jacket. Best repop I've ever seen . No better quality available. Unbelievable craftsmanship, the kind that is impossible to find in anything you can get these days. Several generations will wear this A2 jacket. (With proper care). I'm still not sure about the gloves. I will need to wear them . They're still a very good repop and I think they will be very durable.

My best jacket Review by Richard C.
Quality

This is my best fitting jacket in my closet
(And I have about 40) this is my second A2.
I have found it to be the most authentic
as well. I don’t like nylon linings, as I like wearing short sleeve shirts, this one is cotton russet. Usually when ordering a jacket it will say cotton lining and when I receive it there is nylon in the sleeves where it touches your skin.
Not this one it is cotton throughout and Cockpits description is spot on. Thanks Cockpit. Exactly as pictured, exactly as described, please keep doing this. (Posted on 10/22/2019)
Absolutely Superb - The Real A-2 Jacket! Review by Vinny
Quality

An authentic, gorgeous jacket with mesmerizing quality & craftsmanship.

This amazing full grain horsehide A-2 simply gets all the more so beautifully stunning with every day of wear, showing it's wonderful creases, folds, leather graining & under-color, giving it that famous "worn" appearance we all love about original A-2s.

I am 5ft10" (177.8cm) & 150lbs (68kg) and a size 38R fits me perfectly! A huge thank you to Jacky Clyman who assisted me in the sizing process, the service from Cockpit USA is just as remarkable as their unmatched quality.

If you are looking for a true aviator's jacket that will last a lifetime - look no further. (Posted on 12/5/2018)
FULL GRAIN AMERICAN HORSEHIDE Review by John
Quality
Value
I bought this jacket through ACE Jackets, which happened to be cheaper than Cockpit USA (direct) because it was on sale. This A2 is excellent in many ways. The level of craftsmanship is very high. The Russet Brown colour is truly WWII, which is hard to get these days, as most modern A2's are made in Dark Brown, or Seal Brown as they call it. Just after I placed the order I asked Cockpit USA about the leather, and I was informed by Jacky Clyman that the FULL GRAIN Horsehide was used for this jacket. I think this is a very important piece of information which is not mentioned anywhere in the website or labelling. For the price we pay it's really good value for money. I love this jacket, it fits me very well. I am 174cm and 76kg, and I picked size 44R. I have seven A2's jacket, and this one is on the top of the list.

Fit Review by Richard

Quality is the best it does fit tighter than the 100 mission jacket bought previously. It has a differant cut and not as roomy. That being said I have wide shoulders for my size & riding my Harley it rides up a bit. Other than riding it fits quite well. (Posted on 3/10/2017)
Beautiful Jacket Review by Jen Sorensen

I bought one of these for my husband, a pilot, 18 years ago when you made them under the Avirex label. Identical horsehide jacket with the same liner, made in the USA. I just finished conditioning the leather. It's still beautiful and he gets just as many compliments today as when I bought it for him. (Posted on 1/29/2017)
