About the MA-1
The Military MA-1 Bomber Flight Jacket was designed by the United States Air Force to be a more comfortable and less bulky pilot jacket than the leather flyer jacket they were using. 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 if they were shot down.

Standard issue. True to size. Does the job. Good quality and warm. Form fitting. If you are a dude with a beer belly, I would not order this jacket.
The quality of this jacket is unreal. I wore this same jacket in the USAF and can’t believe I found it at the price I paid. Extremely warm for winter use only.
