Cockpit USA is proud to offer a limited edition re-issue of an original variant of the A-2 Army Air Force pilot’s jacket introduced as official uniform wear in 1931 and permitted to be made of
goatskin even though the original specifications called for horsehide with goatskin as an alternative. We offer this recreation of the goatskin alternative because we believe that both leathers provide a good historical perspective on this iconic jacket.

  1. Was not disappointed Review by Kevin
    Quality
    Value

    I’m always a bit weary of online ordering especially when things look so good online only to be let down when the item arrrives. This jacket was not one of those experiences. First I was impressed with the website. Next were the number of positive reviews. The prices are what I would expect for a quality jacket so I took a chance. Glad I did! Love it, best jacket I own right now. I would definitely order from CPT USA again. (Posted on 3/24/2018)

  2. Excellent Quality, Look and Fit Review by Scott
    Quality
    Value

    I am 5' 7" and weigh 145 lbs. The size small was spot on. I have owned about 6 other bomber-type or related leather jackets over the years and the Mustang A-2 is by far superior in style, quality, texture and fit. The "weathered/distressed" look is genuine and does not feel painted on like some products and really makes it feel more authentic.

    I was really surprised how warm it is too. We are experiencing wicked cold temp in Massachusetts (-3° and -15° with wind chill) and wore it last night to dinner with only a flannel shirt under it and did not feel chilled at all. It definitely shuts out the wind.

    Cannot say enough about the high quality of the stitching, zipper, and the weight of the jacket. I am a nut about zippers and hate it when they do not align right--this one is heavy and is very smooth. The leather is smooth and flexes with my every move right out of the box. I really appreciate the deep double breasted inside pockets as well.

    Some have noted that the price is a bit steep, but I would argue that you get what you pay for. Made in the USA means a lot to me and there is so much inferior clothing products being imported from other countries that I found the price to be very competitive when you consider the quality of the items. This jacket will last decades--you cannot say that about many other products...

  3. Chamberlain's Leather Milk for A-2 Review by William
    Quality
    Value

    On Jacky's advice, I used Chamberlain’s Leather Milk Liniment No. 1 on my new A-2 Mustang, and it worked beautifully — much better than Lexol (it’s a cream, so easier to control application). It didn’t really darken the leather (even the lighter areas resulting from the special tanning process), as much as it deepened the tones. It has softened the whole feel of the jacket, on the surface and beneath the surface, imparting a comfortable suppleness and a soft satin glow. Excellent. (Posted on 12/29/2017)

  4. Perfect A-2 Review by William
    Quality
    Value

    I recently wrote a review regarding my experience, in the NYC showroom, purchasing my first Cockpit jacket. Today I received my A-2 Mustang, and it is perfect — the real thing; it looks like I've been wearing it for years, withstanding the test of time, exactly what I wanted. The styling and the details of construction speak of the high quality of days long past, when the value of American craftsmanship matched the value of the men and women who served in the Army Air Corps; that is, some things cannot be overvalued — and Cockpit USA's commitment, service, and the resulting jackets are among them.

  5. Genuine A-2 & Superb Service Review by William
    Quality
    Value

    I am a new Cockpit customer, having finally found a genuine A-2 (exactly like the one my father brought home from the Air Corps), after searching the internet seemingly endlessly. I called from Oakland, and made an appointment to visit the showroom on a recent trip to NYC. There I was treated like a friend, with more than one size brought in for me over two days to truly check the fit. The service was superb, backed by the owner's thorough knowledge of her products. I loved the entire experience. Fine jacket, excellent price, good people. (Posted on 12/14/2017)

  6. The Perfect A-2 Aviator... Review by Mark
    Quality
    Value

    Have tried dozens of leather A-2 jackets from a number of manufacturers. The Mustang, in my view, is simply the best A-2 on the market in terms of features, fit, material and build quality. Also, Cockpit USA offers highly-personalized and overall superb service and support.

    FIT:
    I’m 5’11”, 190 lbs., 44” chest, 34” waist, 34” sleeve length, broad shoulders, athletic build. The Mustang in size XL fits me extremely well. Snug at the waist, sufficient movement in the shoulder area, enough space to wear a sweater under the jacket, but fairly trim fit, not bag like at all. It’s worth noting that the fit is different than the fit of a number of other Cockpit USA A-2 jackets.

    MATERIALS:
    The Mustang’s fatigued goatskin is lightweight, tough, breathes well, and is nicely broken-in. The silk-like lining appears much tougher than the lining on most A-2 jackets from other manufacturers. The cuffs and waistband are tightly woven and rugged.

    FEATURES:
    There are two interior pockets that are deep enough and wide enough for a large wallet or iPhone 8 plus. The majority of A-2 jackets seem to only have one interior pocket. Like most original A-2s, there’s a metal hook at the throat area. Side pockets are cloth-lined at the front, leather in the back.

    All in all, the Mustang is better looking, better-built and offers better fit (for me at least) than any other A-2. Jacky and Stanley at Cockpit USA are wonderful. I appreciate that this jacket is made in the U.S. and yet isn’t much more expensive than all the A-2’s on the market made in Turkey or elsewhere. I could not be more satisfied with this purchase.

  7. Mustang A2 Limited Edition Review by Mike
    Quality
    Value

    It's pricey. And by the time it landed here in Alberta, REALLY pricey. over $850 CDN pricey. But I'll tell you what. It's worth every pricey penny! My Value rating is based on USD.

    It fits like a glove, looks amazing and feels great. The distressed goatskin is so light that I will even be able to wear it in warmer weather unlike my other leather jackets that weighed a ton. And it goes very well with my vintage fedoras.

    The interior pockets are huge and able to easily accommodate my fat wallet, smart phone, eyeglass case and fountain pen without making me look fat!

    Kudos on this one and I can't wait to get reaction when I actually wear it out and about. (Posted on 2/27/2017)

    Excellent quality, styling and appearance. I had contemplated replacing my brown leather jacket for a while and finally decided to do it and made a major step up. I love the history behind the jacket and have kept the story card and tag inside. Also, I am a larger man and cannot always find stylish products available in my size, so thank you for including us.

The way you look in the jacket will make you feel like a hundred bucks. if your looking for an amazing looking A-2 this is the jacket for you. (Posted on 1/2/2016)

  12. A-2 Jacket Review by Anna
    Quality
    Value

    I purchased an A-2 jacket from a distributor, and found the zipper to be stiff. While that company would not assist me beyond telling e that all those zippers were stiff, Cockpit USA stepped right in when I contacted them regarding my concerns. They sent me a call tag to return the original jacket to them, and I ordered an A-1 jacket (they promised to check the zipper firs) which arrived only a few days later.
    My husband is thrilled with the jacket! The feel of the leather is wonderful (not too thick and bulky), the distressed look is very realistic, and we could not be happier with their service and their product. (Posted on 12/26/2015)

  14. Best. Jacket. Ever. Review by Eric
    Quality
    Value

    I found one of your jackets in a museum shop at Pearl Harbor. It was a large, which was a bit too big for me, but I decided right there that I had to have a Cockpit USA jacket. I checked your site as soon as I got back to the mainland and I found this beauty. I own several leather jackets but they've all been retired after I put on the Mustang A-2. It fits perfect, it looks amazing, and it exudes that confident attitude. Thank you so much. (Posted on 12/8/2015)

    I love this jacket. I became aware of Cockpit USA while visiting Pearl Harbor, and decided right then that I had to have one of their jackets. After about a week of going back and forth on multiple jackets, I decided on the A-2 Mustang. The aged, vintage look, the fit, hell even the smell is amazing. It is exactly what I was looking for. I'll be wearing this jacket for the rest of my life. (Posted on 10/28/2015)

  20. Its what you bring to the jacket that counts Review by Diesel
    Value
    Quality

    Over the years I have learned that there are five things that a man looks his absolute best in; a real A2 is one of them. This Mustang A2 is a real one. If you look at the styling of the pocket flaps, the collar latch, the cut, the overall appearance of the jacket - its real. I have one and I can tell you that its not just looks, its made that way. And it has that thing - life-worn toughness, I suppose - that makes me look good in it. Until someone comes up with a way to bottle that feeling and that look, this jacket will do me just fine, thank you. If you want pretty, get a designer 'bomber'. If you want a well-seasoned second skin, this is it. What the jacket brings to you is important, but its what you bring to the jacket that counts. Bring it on. And wear it well.

  21. Thank you for reviewing our Mustang A-2. Review by Jacky Clyman
    Value
    Quality

    Dear Andy
    Thank you so much for the post on our jackets including the A-2 goatskin Mustang. It is important for us to get feedback on products so we can make them better. Would really appreciate getting an email with some more information as to your comments about quality and fit. This jacket is made of a very special goastkin which has been super distressed in the way we used to make our distressed jackets in the 1980s. Unfortunately, the distressing process is not scientific and may account for some of your complaints which is why more information would be welcome. Would you please send any additional comments to info@cockpitusa.com
    Best Regards,
    Jacky (Posted on 5/2/2014)

  22. Had to return it Review by Andy

    Quality

    I currently own 2 Antique Lambskin A2 bombers and 2 100 Mission A2 bombers. These are the best jackets I have ever owned. When the Mustang A2 came out, I had to have it based on the online picture only. However I was disappointed when it arrived yesterday. The fit and quality didn't come close the my other A2's. With my refund I plan to buy the Cockpit Classic Raider Jacket Next time I'm in NYC. I still love your products (except the Mustang) (Posted on 4/30/2014)

  23. authentic A2 Review by AJ
    Value
    Quality

    A great jacket. Always hooked on the look. Have wanted a jacket for nearly 40 years. Big fan of WWII movies and have thought the A2 as iconic as a Colt 1911 as a symbol of WWII. The jacket is authentic with the clasp collar and hook. I am 6'0 and weigh 170 lbs. The medium fits perfectly. The distressed goatskin has a unique look and feel. Five stars. (Posted on 12/18/2013)
