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 developed and issued. It was said that the popular film, “Top Gun” may have influenced the new A-2. The first Air Force A-2 contract was awarded to Avirex, but all subsequent contracts from 1988 to 1998 were awarded to Neil Cooper USA, now U.S. Wings of Ohio. 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.
This is a great jacket!!!!!

Dear Sergeant Hack,
I’ve received the jacket, first class, very well made and I am picky (well being French!), first grade leather and timeless design, should last years and years. Not as sophisticated as my PN from the French Arme de l’air but surely the same quality. Thank you again for making such good products at a more than reasonable price. Best to you and your outfit.

I received my size Large, Modern A-2 today. It is a PERFECT FIT. I am 5″ 11″ tall and 160 lbs. This jacket is top quality, from the lining to the leather. All at a reasonable price. So glad I bought a U.S. Wings jacket.

WOW ! I ordered this jacket as a gift for my husband and we both could not be more impressed. The fit was perfect and the quality is second to none. Thank you so much for the free gifts; we will wear the hat with pride and cannot wait to read your book.

Received a few days ago the Modern A-2 I ordered for my son. What a beautiful jacket — and a free hat to boot! Thanks, and Merry Christmas.

I just received my Modern A2 jacket and to say I am pleased is an understatement.
1.) The jacket fits perfectly.
2.) The high quality is U.S. made not Asian junk.
3.) The leather and sewing quality is fantastic.
4.) This jacket will outlive me.
5.) I am a Vietnam era vet and it feels like a military issue jacket. Not a dollar store reproduction.
6.) I travel over 100,000 miles per year and this jacket will be my friend in all climates.
I am a customer for life. Thanks for a great product. I will be ordering an Indy-style soon.

Just received my jacket (Modern A-2) today and I wanted to thank you for the help in sizing over the phone (I think his name was Mike). Between the sizes and types of jackets I have purchased in the past from you, he nailed the sizing dead-on on this A-2. Super jacket, super quality, super value and most important… super fit! Thanks for all your help.

I just received my new modern A-2, and am very pleased. It seems to be very good quality (materials and workmanship), the price was very reasonable, and it was delivered exactly on time as advertised. Thank you!

Just wanted to let you know the Modern A-2 my wife ordered arrived today. My wife and I both looked at a lot of different jackets on line and in retail stores. This is by far the best of any that we looked at, and the price was great. Thanks again for a great product.

I’m really happy with the quality of the jacket I ordered from your shop. I was in the USAF for 23 years, on the flight line. I know quality gear and this is it, right up there with the 1911 slabside and C-130 Herk. Will do business with you in the future.

I have received my Modern A-2 jacket, belt, Atocha Jewelry, Cap and book. Australian culture rarely permits accolades, but in your case… Awesome. This is the finest made quality Jacket I have ever owned. The Cap is the best quality cap I now own, I have a few so-called brand names but this beats them all easily and it was Free. The Belt was more than expected. Awesome. I would have liked to have shared with you my Daughters response to the Jewelry. Even the shipping packaging was top notch and arrived on the day you said it would. Quality, quality. For the first time in my 42 years I firmly believe that I have had the best shopping experience. This was achieved through your web site. Best I’ve been to in every detail. Service was prompt in all aspects and spot on with advice and best quality items I have ever owned and all this from a distance of over 12000 kilometers away with prices that can’t be beat. Awesome. I eagerly look forward to my next package of goodies coming my way in the next couple of weeks. But I’ve got a new book to read while I’m waiting, thank you. Your Defense Service Personnel are spoilt, but good on ya mates.
A couple weeks ago I received your Modern A-2 Jacket. I must tell you that I believe the jacket to be quite the value. The workmanship is outstanding, the jacket fits great and looks wonderful. I have been looking for an A-2 for several years and have never found a quality jacket at a price I was willing to pay. Thanks for providing a great jacket to me with outstanding delivery service.

Dear Sgt HacK,
Just wanted to say that my recent purchase of a modern A2 goatskin leather jacket was the best decision I ever made. I served in the USAF as an air crewman from 1970 to 1980 and I never did own a leather A2 jacket . I was totaly blown away about the jackets quality and workmanship. Ive recieved some very nice comments from current military and ex military about the jacket and even from civilians as well while in movie theaters and other establishments when I wear it. When they ask me where I bought it, I reply GOOGLE US WINGS on the web and be prepared to be staring at some of the nicest quality military jackets to be found anywhere for hours. A jacket for every budget too !
As a matter of fact, while searching for my A2 jacket, I had several web sites saved on my pc searching for that perfect coat and deal. Then I found the US WINGS web site. NO CONTEST AT ALL !!! ( I deleted all the rest ) Even the US WINGS site was set up in a manner that was complete with very detailed description of each product you carry with very nice pictures of each skew you offered. Whom ever designed your web site did it right !
There are certainly some COPIES of A2 and G1 appearing in the market now and from a distance the may fool a few onlookers but Ive seen them up close and the MADE IN CHINA label inside says it all. Not to slam the Chinese but if the US WING jacket rates a 10 as an example, the imported knock-off would rate a 6 at best. Im not even sure what kind of leather is used in the Chinese imported products. ( Im a little afraid to even ask too )
Im so happy with my purchase sarg that Im going to convince the wife that theres a terrific G1 NAVY jacket on your site in my size and fits my budget . My father was a NAVAL AVIATOR from 1946 to 1972 and flew thousands of hours and gave me his old G1jacket and its beyond restoration as to the leather is totaly dried and partially rotted. I cant even save the old squadron patches sewn on it as to their totaly faded. Besides, I grew a bit larger than dad and the coat wouldnt fit anyway. Im going to locate as many of my dads old squadron patches as I can since many companies make reproductions now. By the way, dad is still living at 87 years old and would certainly be pleased of me wearing a beatiful US NAVY G1 jacket with many of his old squadron patches neatly attached to it. My father even commanded a submarine hunter squadron during the cold war so he was in a sense a real hero that in some small way contributed to our nations security so a personal salute to his career would not be appropriate in a CHINESE KNOCK OFF PRODUCT.
A US WINGS JACKET WILL MAKE ANYONE WEARING ONE FEEL RED, WHITE AND BLUE ALL OVER !!!
Thank you Sargeant Hack for your time. Steve Z. Virginia Beach, Virginia
