    I have been a loyal customer for many years and I mean many. I had the honor of meeting up with Jeff and jacky. At the American Air Muesum on memorial day.
    They were the best. But back to A-2 in black it came in faster then I thought. And was pack perfect. And when I open it the smell and feel was outstanding. Jacky was nice to let me know they made one in black. Now my closet is set from A-2 to my B-3 and let's not forget my G-1. Now my flying is complete. As a pilot you need the best. And also as a none pilot it is a addition to your wardrobe. Listen you want the best. They always say you get what you pay for. Well people they are right. So before you go else where. Your first choice is THE COCKPIT. Service is a 10 and Quality is outstanding. (Posted on 6/10/2016)

    A beautiful goatskin jacket, made with dedicated skill and craftmanship. Not a single loose sewing thread, all sewings are straight and flawless. I'm very happy with this purchase. I already offered one to my old man a few years ago. Now, it's my turn. Congrats to the Cockpit USA team for offering such amazing products. (Posted on 3/8/2016)

  6. American Made Amazing Review by Chad
    Quality
    Value

    The A-2 I received from Cockpit is simply amazing. The jacket was packaged with care for shipping. The construction is superb from the quality of the hide to the beauty of the stitching. I have owned a Cooper made A-2 for the past 24 years and the Cockpit is far and away the better constructed and more beautiful of the two. My only minor concern with the jacket is the material the cuffs and waistband are woven from seems less durable than the rest of the jacket. However, even this minor concern is not enough to diminish my immediate amazement for this jacket. Cockpit USA is keeping "Made in America" something to be proud of. Thank You Chad K.

  7. Love my A-2 since the moment I opened the box! Review by Andreas
    Quality
    Value

    I have several A-2s from before from a number of manufacturers. Depending on the manufacturer they range in size from 42 Tall to 48 Tall, stopping at many sizes in between. As the A-2 type has been around since 1931 and in different patterns, and people now tend to be larger than during WWII, anyone knowing something about A-2s is that sizing can be quite a hassle.

    I was very worried about the sizing, but Stanley Slovak at Cockpit USA took his time (he was downright patient) and ensured that the size would be good. At the end it turned out to be a standard 44.

    I loved my A-2 jacket since the moment I opened the box!

    While I am very happy with all my other A-2s, this is one of my absolute favorites!

    The jacket fits absolutely perfect! The seams are flawless and quality of leather is top of the line! The color is beautiful (very dark brown). It is a very robust jacket. The feel wearing it is super!

    Considering it all, the ratio of quality versus price is absolutely at the top level!

    Very pleased with my A2, very much better quality than cheaper imitations. The leather (goatskin) is wonderfully supple, very comfortable to wear. The updated version that I bought, with the pen pockets, two inside pockets and external 'handwarmer' pockets makes it very practical too. It will get a lot of use! (Posted on 10/8/2015)

  14. Cockpit! Where have you been all my life? Review by Idaho Flyer
    Value
    Quality

    I shudder to think of the thousands I've wasted on A2 jackets over the years, from overpriced Avirex mall jackets to way overpriced Ralph Lauren models. I've even owned a couple of vintage A2s that were actually affordable back in the 1970s.

    None of them compare to the 21st Century A-2 that just showed up at my door. Everything I disliked about the others is now history. Cockpit! Where have you been all my life? (Posted on 8/25/2015)

    I recently sent my 21st. Century A2 jacket back to Cockpit U.S.A. to have the cuffs and waist band replaced. This is an older jacket that I have had for a while. I was in contact with Stanley Slovac, of customer service, and I asked him if they could also add the hook and eye closure at the collar. He said it would be no problem. The jacket arrived home today and it looks great! Customer service is awesome with this company and so is their product line! Did I mention the factory shipped my jacket back to me free of charge?

    This is my 2nd jacket this year. I guess after getting the first one (Antique Lambskin A-2) the bug bit me for a 2nd one. I turned this jacket around in less than 24 hours to have a WWII Pacific scene painted on the back to honor my father & uncle. Great jacket, will be glad when I get it back. Thanks Jacky.

    A superbly handsome and well-tailored jacket, recently purchased as a wedding gift for a very demanding (historically-savvy) older brother.

    Delivery, packaging and customer service were all immaculate (thank you Jacky ;) ).

    Unpacking, the overpowering smell of new leather was extremely satisfying. Adding to the mix a very happy brother, I have to say I have been impressed. Not a single point of complaint in sight.

    Thank you! (Posted on 6/5/2015)

  18. Very Well Made Jacket Review by Scott
    Value
    Quality

    I purchased the brown version in-store, and had such a great experience and loved the jacket so much I decided I "needed" the black version. Molly was very helpful both visits and overall, Cockpit is addicting!

    Both jackets are very well made and the leather is strong; it feels like it will last through the elements and any bumps, brushes and snags that may come its way through the years. I have several other Cockpit jackets, this one is cut much fuller but doesn't look sloppy. Great for wearing a sweater and scarf underneath. (Posted on 6/2/2015)

  19. Superb! Review by Christopher
    Value
    Quality

    I have owned a Cooper A-2 for 25 years, and I got great service from it. However, it never did fit quite right, and I finally decided to upgrade. My gripe with my Cooper jacket was that it was just too short in the back and in the sleeves. I am 6-1, 175 lbs, and my Cooper (with the standard "Turkish Mod") was size 40R. With this in mind, I was prepared to order the Cockpit USA jacket in size 40Long. I sent in my sizing sheet to Jacky, and she talked me out of my plan and I'm glad she did--the Cockpit USA jacket is cut much fuller and longer than the Cooper design (a full 3.5 inches longer in the back, for example), so the correct size for me ended up being 38 Regular. My new Cockpit USA jacket feels slightly heavier than the Cooper, but then again, there is more material. The goatskin leather appears to be higher quality than in the Cooper, and is buttery soft to the touch with very fine grain. The color is DARK--when I first opened the box, it looked almost black until I got it into the full light. Viewed in person it is a dark chocolate color. The details of the sewing are flawless and robust. In summary, this was a very pricey jacket, but I'm happy with my purchase because as I get older I find I'm less tolerant of substandard kit!

  20. excellent Review by Neely
    Quality
    Value

    This is my second A-2. The first was lambskin; it was cut fuller and - because it was softer - just a little too prone to catch on things. I live in West Texas and occasionally brush up against a briar, which doesn't penetrate the goatskin and sort of slides past. Additionally, the leather seems to breathe better: I can wear it in the morning when the weather is fairly cold, and in the afternoon the jacket is still quite comfortable. A primo piece of equipment: lots of pockets and fits great. (Posted on 3/26/2015)

  21. Impressed !!!! Review by Burt

    Quality

    I was truly amazed at the superb quality and fit of the U.S.A.F. 21st. Century A-2 Flight Jacket. From the first call that I made to Cockpit right down to the delivery of my fine jacket I was impressed with the way in which I was treated. A genuine interest was taken in gathering all the correct measurements information to assure a proper fit. The staff at Cockpit is Top Notch. I am in love with this jacket and will cherish it forever. I am a veteran having served in the Air Force, and believe this jacket to be superior than my original issue from back in the early 70's.

    Quality

    This is my second A-2 jacket, with my first being from Avirex (Brown), and my most recent one (Black) from Cockpit U.S.A.. In comparing the two models, I must say that my Avirex model is much more substantial in the weight of the leather, but the modern cut of the Cockpit model is more suitable for my taste. The leather is tough/rugged, and the zipper/buttons are well made. I am already considering my next purchase. Overall, this is one of the best possible Aviator jackets you can find.

    Great jacket, top notch materials and workmanship. But a word of caution - if you have a muscular/athletic physique, you may want to order a size down. I ordered this jacket in my usual jacket size - 44, based on the descripton. The jacket fits great in the chest and shoulders but is sloppy/loose in the body and waist. (Posted on 1/26/2015)

    Quality

    I just purchased my 2nd 21st Century A-2 from Cockpit USA and am again delighted with the quality. If you are looking for an A-2, I highly recommend the 21st Century with the extra pockets. Much better utility than my old standard A-2, and nobody would ever know from the outside that the jacket is the updated version. The goatskin leather, tanning and stitch work are also top notch! I gave this new jacket to my son as a high school graduation gift since I rarely got to wear my own because he always has it on! Shipping was fast even though the jacket was out of stock when I ordered it. Just over one week from the order date. (Posted on 6/25/2014)
