01.22.2024 | Balmonts | NEWS

Winter flying is in full swing, which means it’s time to dress in a few extra layers and prepare for the colder days. Not every jacket is suitable for the cockpit, but that's where we come in - to help you choose the one that's right for you. We'll break down every jacket we sell, focusing on weight, fit, durability, weather resistance, and warmth. These jackets are designed for cold conditions, whether you're flying a hydroplane or chopping firewood in the backyard. Its rugged exterior keeps out the elements and can withstand just about any abuse it can throw at it. The jackets are comfortable on the inside and tough on the outside, with a quilted lining and Sherpa-style accents to keep you warm. This is the bomber jacket for the modern aviator. On cold and snowy days, opt for a reliable option - a classic leather bomber jacket. These jackets are updated to replicate the classic bomber jackets from World War II. Both are crafted from supple goatskin and feature a full cut for a relaxed fit.

Modern leather bomber jacket
This updated design was created to replace the classic A-2. Officially known as the AN-J-3, this modern jacket eliminates the epaulettes and adds a double-swing backrest and underarm gussets for easier movement in the cockpit. Crafted from dark brown leather, it's cut throughout for a relaxed fit.

Classic Leather Bomber Jacket (A-2)
The U.S. Air Force introduced the original A-2 as a "standard model" more than 90 years ago. Since then, it has become a cultural icon, worn by World War II aces and Hollywood stars. Our beautiful A-2 (pictured above left) was built to original Mil-Spec #A2-98 as our guide, but updated for today's pilots.

Wing jacket
Looking for a jacket that's warm without the bulk? The Airfoil jacket does just that. Designed for comfort in cooler conditions, it's the packable adventure jacket you've been looking for. At less than 1 pound, this jacket is lighter than most sweatshirts yet sturdy enough for your next trail mission. It's insulated and quilted for comfort, and has a water-resistant coating to repel light rain and snow. This versatile jacket can be worn as an inner or outer layer, blending classic aesthetics with technical features.

MA-1 hooded bomber jacket
This bomber jacket is perfect for lovers of retro style with a modern edge. With its sleek, lightweight and waterproof design, the MA-1 became the uniform of jet jockeys in the 1950s. Although the MA-1 is designed for colder conditions, it remains comfortable in warm weather if left open. The latest version features a drawstring hood as well as a knitted waistband and cuffs to keep out cold air while adding comfort. Includes two welted slant pockets with snap buttons, zippered pencil/cigarette combo pocket on sleeve, and wind/waterproof exterior. High-rise design provides sitting comfort.

M65 Classic Field Jacket
Originally designed for the U.S. military during the Vietnam War, the M65 Classic Field Jacket has become a favorite among pilots and aviation enthusiasts. Unique four large front pockets help you stay organized while preparing for the plane and flying. The waterproof exterior makes it a great choice for all seasons, and the removable lining helps keep you cool during the warmer parts of the year.

MA-1 jacket
For those looking for an authentic military flight jacket, the MA-1 has you covered. This jacket is manufactured to the strict requirements of the United States Air Force. It features a 100% nylon shell that is reversible to high-visibility Indian Orange for use in harsh conditions. Although the MA-1 is designed for colder conditions, it remains comfortable in warm weather if left open.

Cotton A-2 jacket
This handsome jacket shares the same time-honored silhouette as the leather A-2 flight jacket that has been a favorite among pilots since the 1930s. The lightweight 100% cotton fabric makes it a great multi-season jacket with proven style and performance.

Flight gear lightweight jacket
Bulky jackets can get in the way in tight cockpits, so lightweight, simple jackets are ideal for smaller aircraft. Lightweight jacket offers the perfect combination of warmth and weight. Pilot-friendly features extend beyond the high-quality construction, including a hood that folds up and hides in a special pocket sewn into the collar. The cuffs at the ends of the sleeves are adjustable with Velcro and are stretchy to help keep out wind. Two side pockets have zippers to prevent items from falling into the cockpit.
