Reissue A-2 Jacket
- Product Review (submitted on April 8, 2018):
More detailed version:
[I usually am not the review kind of person, as a matter of fact this is my first one, but for Cockpit USA I even went through extensive registration to express my gratitude]
When looking for an A-2 jacket, I first came across Cockpit USA about one year ago. The free-enterprise-restricting and outrageously high VAT policies of Europe prohibited me from purchasing one online, though. As I then, completely unintentionally, scheduled a visit to NYC, I remembered them and contacted them for an appointment. After having seen their goods, there was no doubt left in my mind, if there ever was any, that Cockpit USA was to the one and only brand worth buying a higher-priced leather product from. Their products are the best of the best.
The A-2 jacket I purchased is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It is as smooth as silk, as well processed as a Swiss wristwatch and possibly even sold under value.
The history and circumstances surrounding this Star-Spangled company are also astonishing. Founded in the 20th century it grew as a picture perfect example of the American Dream and now is an official DOD (in the jacket is says U.S. Air Force and Army) supplier — and from what I can tell the government, for once, made the perfect decision. They support America’s troops all the way and their products certainly do so, as well.
The business representatives I met in their splendid looking NYC show room have been very nice, professional and helpful in every aspect imaginable.
It might be rather obvious, but I am truly fascinated by this red-white-and-blue kind of place and their products, which speak for themselves. Had the English language any more praising words, this would surely be the occasion to use them.
If you are looking for anything they could possibly offer and have the remotest chance to visit New York City or to order online, give it (at least) a try because they deserve it and their all-American products are worth it.
They are THE best.
