Best jacket I have ever owned Review by Donald
Quality
Value
My parents both had Government Issue flight jackets which they kept from their service during WW II. We loved those jackets and they lasted for years.

I have had many reproductions of them throughout the years, and recently decided to get an authentic jacket. I chose Cockpit USA for a number of reasons, and I have never been happier with a purchase.

The jacket arrived just as ordered and on time. It is beautiful, and well made, just as advertised. I get compliments whenever I wear it. It fits as if it was hand tailored for me.

My thanks for a job well done, and an excellent jacket. (Posted on 3/10/2018)

It is PERFECT! Absolutely love it, fit, look and workmanship absolutely Outstanding. Trust Jacky for fit, I ordered a 40 versus a 42.

Thank you Jacky, for your patience and care (Posted on 3/7/2018)
Love the Jacket! Review by Rennie

I still have a Cooper A2. Not exactly a loose fit but I guess it’s a slim fit by today’s standards. Ordered a 42R and had to return it for a 40R. Great jacket and great price. The quality and color are superior to the Cooper and that is saying a lot because the Cooper A2 is still awesome and timeless. Next purchase will be the light weight Nomex in sage. You can spend a lot more for leathers and not get the fit and quality of this classic. (Posted on 2/21/2018)

Excellent perceived quality, great service Review by Rick

It is the first leather jacket that I purchased, I always wanted one, but would not afford it or didn't like the fit or leather. As soon as I opened the box, I knew I was right to buy from Cockpit USA!
Shipment to Europe was very fast, fit is perfect thanks to the measurement tips.
If the jacket holds well in the future, you have a new customer for life! (Posted on 1/19/2018)
An "A-1", A-2 Jacket Review by Ken
Quality

I've been wanting a quality A-2 jacket for years. Others I owned didn't fit right or were poor quality. After reading all the positive customer reviews on the Cockpit USA website I decided to give them a try. I phoned my order in with my measurements and was assured the jacket would meet my fit expectations. Jacket arrived on stated delivery date. Opened the package and immediately could see the quality of the jacket. Fit is perfect. Wore the jacket for most of the second day I owned. Love it. Wish I would purchased this jacket from Cockpit USA years ago. (Posted on 1/12/2018)
Modern USAF A2 Review by Edison
Quality
Value
This jacket is high quality made in USA, you would have to pay at least a grand if you were to buy a similar quality jacket from those designer brands that aren't even made in the USA. This is the modern fit A2 made for the modern military male body. Keep in mind that in the 1940s, most military men had very slim bodies. The modern military now are much bigger and protein eaters with bigger chests and backs than at least 30 years ago. Just look at your modern Hollywood men now compared to the past, they are much more ripped now than ever. If you want the older slimmer style A2 to look hipster cool or you just skinny, don't get this modern one because you will end up complaining that it's to baggy for your skinny ass. I am a US Air Force Veteran for 4 years and this is the one that is issued to flight crews and POTUS(President of the United States) and Vice POTUS. I would want to someday have the classic Flying Tigers or Tokyo Raiders A2, but this modern A2 is a standard for me because I have a modern athletic build (body builder). The extra room in the modern A2 allows you to wear a sweater under this jacket when it gets really cold. Super comfortable for the 21st century and never compromising the function of the A2 for fashion. Hipsters be warned, modern Air Force aviators will laugh at you for wearing a tight A2. Take a very good look at old WWII photos, even back then it was worn loose, they were just really skinny back in those days. (Posted on 12/6/2017)
Best jacket you can buy Review by Alexander
Quality
Value
This is the most expensive jacket I've ever purchased but I'm confident it was the best jacket purchase I've ever made. Most importantly, Cockpit makes this style available in tall sizes. With another company like LL Bean, tall sizes are available only in Large and above, but Cockpit sells a 38L which fits me better, and since fit is the most important thing in clothing, I got a better jacket. The leather has a great softness and smell. The fact that this is an authentic military issue item from the real supplier is also something I appreciate. My only complaint thus far is that when I walk, the sleeves rub annoyingly on the front pockets if I walk while the jacket is unzipped - I'm not sure what the major cause is, the sleeve width, my body shape, the increased pocket height due to the side entry, or maybe the fact that it's still new. If Cockpit makes more styles in long sizes, I'll definitely buy one of those, and Cockpit is my go-to for leather jacket recommendations now. (Posted on 10/18/2017)
Terrific Jacket Review by JOHN
Quality

I just bought this jacket and it is beyond terrific. The leather is very soft and it easily breaks in. This is a very high quality jacket worth every penny. I look forward to years of use from it. On a side note, Jacky and Stanley were great to work with. You cannot go wrong with this jacket or this company. (Posted on 10/13/2017)
THE BEST !!!!! Review by jerry
Quality

I was expecting a great jacket but the 21st Century A2 surpassed all my hopes..how often does that happen? I cannot say enough about how wonderful the quality and workmanship is on this coat. I have owned many A2's in my life but this is by far "THE BEST I HAVE EVER PURCHSED" I am 5' 10" 163#'s and ordered a size 42 that fit perfect. This is a true size 42 which is what I usually wear. Simply put...do not waste your time looking elsewhere you have found it here with Cockpit USA. Great customer service, and amazing product. I will be a customer for life. (Posted on 7/27/2017)
