Cotton A-2 Flight Jacket
- Product Review (submitted on January 10, 2020):
Nice quality, heavier cotton jacket. I bought the khaki colored
version in 2XL (the leather detail is closer to black then brown). It's certainly a remarkable alternative to the leather selections during Spring and Fall, but I wouldn't recommend it for summer. even during the brisk days.
Some downsides (for me):
The fit runs about an inch short, if you have a longer torso like myself.
I'm 5'11 and 220 lbs and it fits me fine through the middle, EXCEPT it's too short. I do have broad shoulders and longer arms, yet the sleeves still bunch up quite a bit.
The wind flap (over the zipper) has no way to stay closed. There's no snaps, velcro or buttons, so it'll just flap a little when the jacket is zipped-up.
Lastly, the zipper is bit subquality. It could be YKK for the price point of the product and a second (inside) pocket on the opposing-side would be ideal.
