Similar to the jacket worn by the star of the 2013 action movie The Last Stand!
The Signature Series™ Antique Lambskin G-2 Bomber Jacket is our reproduction of a lost classic! Developed in 1943 by the USAAF as a replacement for the venerable A-2. It was a joint venture between the Army and the Navy (AN) to create a standardized aviation jacket (J), but was never officially adopted by either service. The AAF ultimately abandoned leather flight jackets in favor of cloth and nylon flight jackets until the A-2 returned to duty in the late 1980s. Our ANJ-2 differs from the ANJ-3 in the lack of an outside wind flap and inside snap map pocket.
Although the ANJ-2 (G-2) style was never officially adopted for military service, it is still an outstanding flight jacket! In many ways, it is very similar to the USN G-1, but without the mouton fur collar. The premium New Zealand lambskin leather is soft & supple and is designed to age rapidly as you wear it so it will only look better over time! The lack of a fur collar makes our G-2 the ideal three season jacket and the ideal jacket for those of you who like the styling of a G-1 but prefer a leather collar.
Our Signature Series Antique Lambskin G-2 is an outstanding jacket in every way, and its uniqueness sets it apart from the typical A-2s and G-1s that most people are familiar with. The G-2 is a lost classic indeed… but thanks to US Wings, it is not forgotten! Made in the USA exclusively by US Wings.
