The John Ownbey Leather G-1 USN Pilot's jacket is a military-style, cold-weather flight jacket. Originally called the M-445 flight jacket, the leather G-1 jacket was first introduced for use in the US Navy in the 1930s. It replaced the existing Army Air Corps A-2 jacket as the standard jacket to be worn by US Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. After a brief cancellation in the late 1970s, the iconic jacket was brought back during Desert Storm in the First Gulf War.
The John Ownbey G-1 jacket is made from goatskin leather, with a 100% cotton lining. The jacket has a form-fitting cut, with waist webbing for a great fit. The bi-swing back allows for easier arm movement, and a mouton-style collar keeps you warm and comfortable. The two front pockets have a button closure.

This jacket looks great on me - a first for me. Usually with a 46-48 in chest most jackets end up being slightly too long for my somewhat shorter arms; not this one - it fits perfect! The goatskin is soft but not flimsy feeling, and a beautiful dark brown color which I'm sure will fade in time just as beautifully.
The only (minor) gripe I have is I wish that there was some option to add side-entry pockets to the jacket. Other than that, it's amazing!

Friend loved his jacket and how quickly it shipped and arrived. Thank you
The young lady that helped me on the phone when I called with question had a very pleasant voice. She was so nice and helpful.
Jacket is awesome, just like the one I wore in the Marine Corps 50 years ago
