The Classic "Raider" Jacket (Long)
- Product Review (submitted on February 16, 2019):
Because it is essentially the same style, I bought Cockpit USA's Raider jacket to replace an Avirex G-2 I had for over thirty years. The G-2 a/k/a "Old Leather" was an old friend, but he was ready for retirement (and my daughter was happy to have him, scuffs, tears, and all).
When I received the Raider jacket, I was immediately impressed by its weight and quality construction. It definitely isn't cheap (as in cheaply made), but it is a value for the price. The Raider doesn't have the patina of age of "Old Leather" yet, but if I am lucky enough to live another thirty years (very doubtful), I am sure it will become a trusted and valued friend, too.
