Having had a few of these style jackets as my size has changed over the years, this one comes true to size. A very good thing as many don't.

The jacket appears well made but all of this style I have had in the past are goatskin and as such are much softer, and this does not say anything about what kind of leather and it does not feel like goatskin, but it is still very nice.

The other reviewer's comments about the front pockets are correct. For some reason the manufacturer has put these pockets way around from the front (unlike the pictures of the A2 jacket from the same supplier), and they are too far back to be of any use for hand warming unless you are some sort of contortionist. My older US g1 jacket had the pockets right in front. And I don't agree with the comment that this is the way it is supposed to be.

Other than that this jacket seems to be an exceptional value for the price... if the leather holds up. I am very hopeful that the leather isn't "painted" that will wear off in a few seasons like some less expensive leather items I have had (and even many painted leather car interiors these days). Even if it doesn't wear like the original I would buy another for this price I could get several and still not spend what my old one cost. I am also hopeful even thought the leather smells "processed" that it will diminish after a bit. But again, the last US G1 I had smelled like an old baseball glove, like leather should.

The jacket arrives a bit smashed in the box with a few creases that I hang out eventually.

All-in-all if this wears well and holds its deep brown color after a few years, it is a tremendous value as my last US-made G1 was pushing $500.

Update 12/27/12 - all the wrinkles disappear after a few weeks worth of use. It is holding up nicely so far, I am pleased.

I am a private pilot and have had a jacket like this on my wish list for a while now. I ordered the large size and it worked out fine. I was even more pleased when they had a special on this size, so my price went down to $99, unbelievably good value. This is real leather, nothing fake with this. The leather aroma and the weight tell you that you are getting the real thing. It is a Christmas gift for 2012, but I did put it on once before my wife wrapped it up to make sure it was a good fit. It seems like it is better adapted for cold weather, under 45 degrees I would say was best. Casual wearing in warmer weather I think it would be too too warm. It arrived in just a few days. No problems to report at all. I was worried given the price tag that I might be disappointed, or the quality might be lacking, but that does not seem to be the case. For the money it deserves the five star rating.

I have owned many of these jackets over the years. I purchased this one about one year ago and it is my favorite in cold weather months when I'm oustide. It's not very comfortable inside (you may perspire a lot) because it's made for colder weather outdoors or high up in the air where it can get cold. If it's below 40 degrees outside then just slip on a turtleneck (to keep your neck warm) a muffler and wear this coat over both of them. Many hats go well with this jacket; baseball caps, driving caps, knit winter hats, ski hats, etc. It's my favorite in colder outside weather. Many complain about the side pockets being too far to the side. That doesn't bother me because I enjoy wearing either tactical gloves (black by Under Armour) or just simply black baseball batting gloves (Under Armour or NIKE) because each of such gloves fit snugly which allows you to perform many outdoor tasks and even driving in colder freezing winter weather. You can always wear heavier thicker gloves if you are going to be seated outside at a stadium or watching a cold outdoor weather parade. The classic look of this jacket goes well with dress, casual or even sweat pants. The leather in this jacket is well constructed and well worth the price. In the past I have paid more than twice what this leather bomber jacket cost that were not made of this quality of leather. You will not be disappointed with this coat unless possibly you insist on always placing your hands in your pockets. These pockets are smart and snug and you can place small objects in them. The cuffs on the wrists are my favorite style because they are knit and fit snugly. If you do buy one then make sure to place your name in it somewhere because this jacket will be liberated if you set it down somewhere and expect to find it later. The jacket looks exactly as it does in the photo. It was well packaged and arrived in excellent new condition. You will enjoy this for yourself or also as a fine holiday gift for someone on your gift list. I ordered size XXXL because that is my size in an outdoor winter coat to be worn over a turtleneck and a scarf. Mine arrived true to size.

This jacket is so worth the price! The quality is there. - It costs 3 - 4 times as much on other websites.
I have an A2 (Army Air Corp) and always wanted the G1.
This is very nice G1 WW2 Navy style (even has the USN perforated on the windblocker) pilot's jacket.
The fit (for me) is true to size. (I am an XL - I do prefer my jackets loose.)
The handwarmers work when the jacket is zipped, so I somewhat disagree with some of the previous reviews.
The "smell" is leather treatment and not all that strong (as suggested in some reviews).
There were some creases in the leather from being shipped in the box, but they will smooth out over time.
For $99.99 how much more do you want?
I am VERY pleased (to say the least) with this purchase.

I don't know they can deliver such a nice leather jacket at this price. Love the fur collar! Very military look with the American flag featured prominetly on the lining. I had this same jacket last winter but now had to repurchase another one 2 sizes smaller. Makes you feel like a WWll veteran. I'm happy. Can't go wrong with this one.

Just like a lot of others, I read the reviews and decided to jump on this great deal. I am glad I did. The coat arrived yesterday. I unpacked the jacket and stripped off the protective paper and plastic, unzipped the coat and slid one arm into the coat and thought to myself, so far so good, then I slid the other arm into the jacket and pulled down on the front of the jacket and felt pretty good by this time. But I was still not sure if I had made a good choice to buy this thing. So I zipped up the jacket and walked up to the full length mirror and looked, and looked and looked. I couldn't believe it, this jacket is perfect. It is what I have been looking for. For more than 30 years, I have been looking for a Navy leather jacket like they sold on the ship and finally, here it was on line at Amazon. I have purchased a lot of "so called" Navy leather flight jackets, but ended up disappointed. But this time, I hit the gold ring. This is a great jacket and it is one that I can put the patches on.

If you are wondering, if I work for this company, the answer is no. I am just like you guys... I work hard and I expect the best for my money.

If you're on the fence about getting this one because you are worried about quality or the fit, then don't wait too long, because once the word gets out about these jackets being great, they will go quick!.

I followed the size chart and the jacket that I got fits perfect.

My dad is a retired WW 2 Naval pilot and one of the items on his "bucket list" was to go up in a plane like he flew in the navy. A dear friend has graciously offered to take him up in his restored SN-J in a few weeks just before his 90th birthday. I wanted him to look dashing and be warm, too. I took this jacket to him yesterday and he put it on and I was blown away by how good it looked on him. He was so excited and said it was the nicest jacket he has ever owned, and was beyond his wildest dreams!. The quality and details are amazing and he loves that the Navy wings ensignia and American flag are inside. I am so happy with this purchase and I know he will feel like he is back in the Navy for a little bit that day!

The picture looked good, but these jackets must run smaller than normal, since my size in all other jackets and coats is Large, but this one didn't fit at all. The front pockets are sewn too far on the side, and it is difficult to put your hands in them comfortably.

The jacket fit perfectly. It did not have any crease marks from shipping that were noted in other reviews. It appears to be well made and I am looking forward to wearing it this winter.
