The G-1 jacket was introduced by the U.S. Navy during the 1930’s. The G-1 bomber jacket has a mouton collar fur, and features a bi-swing pleated action back that allows for a greater range of movement. Quickly achieving the same notoriety as the Army Air Corps A-2 jacket had, the G-1 bomber jacket was for a time discontinued by Congress because its commercial popularity had become so immense that it overwhelmed the supply. The G-1 flight jacket’s popularity didn’t fade, however, as it still caught the public eye in movies and television, with Cockpit USA’s own jackets being featured prominently in 1986's Top Gun. This enduring popularity has remained to this day.
Guaranteed to make a statement, this jacket is an original Cockpit USA interpretation of a G-1. This jacket is decorated with an array of embroidered emblems on the chest, sleeves and back including the "Sky Warriors", eagle and anchor, "Air Transport Squadron" and other decorative patches representing different task forces and groups. The interior features stunning silk-screened and embroidered "The Nation Salutes You" certificate specially designed by Cockpit USA.
