Limited Edition – Back By Popular Demand!
We last manufactured our Kangaroo Leather Bomber Jacket Modern A-2 more than 10 years ago. We are offering the jacket once again, but only for a limited time! Besides being a rather rare and unique jacket material, Kangaroo-hide is outstanding for its practicality. Lighter than goatskin, horsehide, lambskin and cowhide (which is the most commonly used leather types for A-2 jackets), but much stronger and more durable. Leather is between 0.7 to 0.9 mm thick. Over time, the hide ages to become even more beautiful than when it as bought. With proper care, the leather will last a lifetime or more. Limited production run. Made in the USA.
Handmade by our skilled artisans using the finest Kangaroo leather. Tanned using old-school dying and finishing techniques, which accentuate the full grain, color variances, and natural imperfections of each hide. The hides will display naturally occurring scratches, scuffs, and other range marks which adds character to the jacket. This leather is regulated and certified by the Australian Government.
NOTE: Due to the size of the kangaroo skins, sizes Large and above may have a two piece back panel.

The Modern A-2:
The A-2 leather flight jacket is an American military flight jacket. Originally invented and developed for the World War II U.S. Army Air Forces pilots. After a brief period of not issuing jackets to pilots, the modern A-2 was issued. It was said that the popular film, “Top Gun” may have influenced the new A-2. The modern design differs from the original design in several ways. With a looser fit, made from goatskin in seal brown, side entry pockets, and an inside wallet pockets.
