U.S.A.F. 21st. Century A-2 Jacket (Long)
- Product Review (submitted on July 22, 2019):
I just got my brown Cockpit USA U.S.A.F. 21st Century A-2 jacket in size 42 Long and I love it!
I already have a brown AND a black U.S.A.F. 21st Century A-2 jacket in size 44 Regular. They are great and I wear them often. The fit is very good (I am 184 cm/72.44 in with a long torso in and weigh 93 kg/205 lb) for normal use as I live in a cold country and typically wear a sweater under the jacket.
However, during the summer and some rare warm days while only wearing a t-shirt, polo shirt or light dress shirt, the 44 Regular feels a bit large. Don’t get me wrong, the size is OK, but for my preference it feels perhaps a bit bulky. After discussing with Cockpit USA (Cockpit USA has always been great to discuss sizing with!), I ordered a size 42 Long for the warm days with little clothes under the jacket. This works out perfect! The 42 Long is a bit tighter, but basically has the same lengths as the 44 Regular. So now I have the perfect fits for both cold and warm weather!
Just as with my previous U.S.A.F. 21st. Century A-2 jackets, this one is absolutely perfect. The seams are flawless and the quality of leather is top of the line. The very dark brown color is beautiful. The feel wearing it is super! While not an inexpensive jacket, the quality sure compensates for the price.
