Lighten things up with this contemporary variation of our classic MA-1 flight jacket. The bomber features a trans-nylon, water-resistant shell with nylon lining. The nylon-web oxygen tab with contrast stitching is a unique detail that pays homage to the original mil-spec MA-1 that had the tab so pilots could clip their masks to it. 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.

You get what you pay for: The jacket is more expensive then most brands that make bomber jackets, but the quality is far better and includes custom stitching. For the price tag, I do wish that the red zipper chain was an authentic stitched "remove from flight" chain rather than a cheap one. Otherwise the jacket is superb.
I am 5'8", 170 lbs with broad shoulders. I ordered a medium.
The jacket is slightly longer than a typical bomber jacket since it is a "rain jacket" (similar length to a shirt).
Shoulders/chest are very tight when zipped up which can be uncomfortable when moving your arms. I did not/do not plan on wearing it zipped up since I wear it as a fashion statement. If you plan on using the jacket when hiking/running/biking, etc, then I'd recommend going up a size.
Arrived earlier than expected.
Also expected there to be a bit of a liner, this is strictly a shell.
The quality seems great although the material makes a loud swishing sound when moving.
