A mid-weight flight nylon with water resistance and scads of versatility, the MA-1 Navy fighter pilot jacket was the first military flight jacket to cross over into civilian fashion. Our nylon flight jacket includes knit cuffs, a knit collar and waistband, as well as a strong front zipper with storm flap for warmth. There are multiple snap-closure pockets as well as the utility/pencil pocket with the Remove Before Flight keychain. Our MA-1 jackets are reversible to bright orange, making them ideal for rescue missions and other times when visibility is imperative. This current version has been kept as close as possible to the classic specifications (dating back to the early 1950's) and also received several revisions during the 1960's. Alpha Industries was founded on the belief that the U.S. armed forces deserved protective clothing that was of superior quality and delivered outstanding defense against extreme climate conditions. From our start in October 1959, the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) awarded Alpha contracts to produce jackets for American service members, including iconic styles such as the N-3B parka and the MA-1 flight jacket. Alpha grew rapidly during the 1960s, as the Vietnam War led to a substantial increase in DOD production contracts. Lessons learned from intense battlefield experience also led to new technological advances in fabric and the manufacturing process. Alpha soon began producing infantry jackets, including the iconic M-65 Field Coat made legendary during the Vietnam War. Today, Alpha Industries is known around the world for its high-quality, military-inspired outerwear. We continue to produce the classic military silhouettes that are core to our heritage, as well as modern innovations in style and function. Our top sellers include the MA-1 flight jacket, the M-65 field coat, the Slim-Fit N-3B parka and the G-1 leather bomber. But no matter the jacket, coat, or bomber, one thing will always hold true, the Alpha three-bar label will always represent the superior quality that we base our very reputation on.

Why I didn't give it 5 stars. 2 reasons, the jacket does seem a little puffy when I first wore it. I've had similar cheaper jackets like this in the past and over time some of the puffiness does go away and wears better. I hope it is the same with this jacket. I will post again and let you know after several wears. Secondly, it's dry clean ONLY. This will cost extra to have it cleaned. Has anyone tried washing it by hand or a gentle cycle?
As always, Amazon delivered in a timely manner. Thanks Amazon.
As for measurements. Me personally i typically wear a medium in jackets, t-shirts, sweaters etc. My actual measurement with a tape measure is 38 chest. I ordered a small because the sizing chart said it goes up to a 39.5 and it fit perfectly. I think it depends how you like to wear your jackets. For me the MA-1 jacket is not supposed to be worn like a baggy jacket. Most people would only be wanting to wear a t-shirt underneath due to it being so warm. So that is personal preference. I probably could have gotten away with the medium, but as i only wear a t-shirt under it, it fits well.
This jacket also comes with the red patch "Remove before flight." Outstanding jacket and I can't say enough good things about it.
I think that there is a fit size but with the chance of missing again do not think I will buy it again
