  1. First leather G-1 jacket Review by Rusty
    Quality
    Value

    Bought this forrestal from another site just because its $20 less.
    Got the plain (no patches). Here at cockpit site, it is describe as regular fit, site that i got it from says "military fit". So, i read the reviews and there's not much around, some bought their regular size and its snug, some suggest that if you're wearing other than
    regular t-shirt (thin sweater, long sleeve shirt with tie), then go up a size. Read a review that says 160lbs, 5'10" and bought a size 38 and says that it just fit right (not too snug). So, i decided to go up a size
    coz i always wear a shirt and tie. I wear a size 40 suit and i went with the 42 jacket. AWESOME JACKET !!!!! I'm 5'10", 190 lbs and the jacket fits great. I would say that the jacket is a normal and not
    slim/ military cut. Sleeves would be maybe about an inch 1/2 longer than i would prefer but it is ribbed knit anyways so its good.
    Quality of leather and stitching are great, leather smells good, soft.
    Be aware that this has no side pocket just like the original g-1, and
    it has that hint of worn-out (not to worn-out) look. Bottom line....,
    love the jacket and would buy again. Highly recommended. (Posted on 3/18/2018)

  3. Best Leather Flight Jacket I've Owned! Review by HarleyD1259
    Quality
    Value

    This is the best leather flight jacket I've ever owned. I love it! The Navy G-1 I was issued 32 years ago in the Marine Corps was awesome but the USS Forrestal Carrier Pilot's Flight Jacket from Cockpit is the one I'll be wearing for years to come. I have purchased other flight jackets but none come close to this one.

    The highest quality materials and top notch workmanship, plus MADE IN USA!

    Recommend contacting Cockpit regarding the fit. G-1s seem to fit on the slim side so you may want to go one size larger, i.e. Size 44 if you normally wear a Size 42...ask Stanley at Cockpit USA if you have questions.

    Cockpit's customer care is second to none. Stanley has been great to work with. Jackie is one of the sweetest ladies there is! I will definitely be back to buy one for my son. (Posted on 10/4/2016)

  4. Superb G1 jacket Review by Paul
    Quality
    Value

    Being the proud owner of The cockpit Avenger G1 jacket I felt the need to purchase a G1 without a wool collar for milder weather. The Forrestal Pilot fit the bill. This jacket is truly phenomenal it is the best of both worlds a cross between the A2 and G1. Having The bi swing back is what sets this above the A2 in comfort. Just make sure you order the correct size as this jacket is size different than my Avenger G1. Jacky was truly helpful with my sizing issues. You don't need to look any further than Cockpit for the best American made jackets.

  6. Outstanding Jacket!! Review by Shawn
    Quality
    Value

    Cockpit has done it again with the classic looking G1 flight jacket! Top quality leather and timeless design of the USN G1 without the fur collar which gives a more sleek and clean look. The jacket is superb with jeans and khakis and always gets complements when I wear it. It is a toss up between the A2 and G1 so I have one of each! I hope you never change Cockpit!!
