The MA-1 was designed by the United States Air Force. They needed a more comfortable and less bulky pilot jacket than the leather jacket they were wearing at the time. The Ma-1 Flight Jacket was first issued about 1949 to the Air Force , Navy pilots and their flight crews. The jacket was made to be reversible with an orange lining so that down pilots could be seen. There are 2 inside hand pockets that were made to be used when you reverse the jacket and serves pilots as inside gear pockets to keep items safe. On the arm is the signature flight jacket pencil/pen holder along with a small zipper pocket for a map or notes. We find this very useful and give the flight jacket its notable look.
The MA-1 is a comfortable year-round jacket, it has had several modifications through the years, but the basic design remains the same. Although the United States military no longer issues the MA-1, it remains a favorite and has become fashionable worldwide. Customers find that this is a great jacket for cool to cold weather.
