You are familiar with our Cape Buffalo Modern A-2 Leather Jacket. Now add some hand painted nose art to this jacket to make it your own. Hand Painted by in-house artist Jim Harley. Our Cape Buffalo Modern A-2 Jacket is made of leather from one of the toughest & most dangerous big game animals in Africa. Cape Buffaloes are one of the “big five” African game animals, but not categorized as an endangered species. Can weigh up to 2,000 lbs. Notoriously difficult to bring down. Our Buffalo leather is very unique and has that old world feel and look. Our tanning and antiquing process ensures that no two jackets will look exactly alike.
With this pedigree, it’s no surprise that our Cape Buffalo Modern A-2 Jacket is one of the toughest and most durable jackets we manufacture. Built like a tank and will withstand whatever adventures you want to take it on. Ideal for bikers, pilots, adventurers or anyone else who needs or appreciates an ultra-tough jacket. Though tough, it’s also a very refined jacket. The antique brown cape buffalo leather is wonderfully soft and rich looking, which makes it equally ideal for use in the urban jungle for those who are less adventure-inclined. Designed to age with wear. A great three season jacket. This jacket has the style, the look, and is a fantastic value. Great 3 Season Jacket! Import.
