40th Anniversary of Raiders of the Lost Ark

June 12, 2021 was the 40th Anniversary of the film Raiders of the Lost Ark. This blockbuster action-adventure movie  introduced us to the character of Indiana Jones.  His iconic leather jacket, fedora & bullwhip launched a franchise that spawned four movies.   A fifth movie is slated to be released in 2022.  As well a TV series, video games, theme park attractions, and more  have been created.  The movie was both a commercial & critical success. In fact it was the highest grossing movie of 1981 and is now considered to be one of the greatest movies ever made.  Its pop culture impact cannot be overstated.


The iconic “Indy”-style jacket is known far & wide as an integral part of the movie’s hero.  Worn by this silver-screen icon as he dashed through the jungle or raced across the desert. Since then, the jacket has gone on to become one of the most popular leather jacket styles over the past four decades. With its plain cuffs & bottom, pleated action back, and adjustable side straps, its style is both timelessly classic & practical.

Our Indy-style Adventurer Jackets are jackets for the true adventurer (or adventurer-at-heart) and we offer them in a variety of different versions. Included our US Wings Cooper Originals in Cape Buffalo, Goatskin, Striated Lambskin, and Vintage Cowhide, exotic leathers like Kangaroo (shown), and we even offer an authentic kid-sized version for your junior adventurers. Regardless of which version you choose, our Indy-style jackets are tough & rugged enough to stand-up to your real-life adventures while still being stylish enough for a night on the town or to wear as a dashing substitute for a sport coat or suit jacket! Check out our US Wings selection in our Indy-style Jacket Collection.
