During WWII, the A-2 jacket was primarily associated with US Army Air Force pilots & aircrews (the Air Force was part of the US Army until 1947), but the A-2 was also worn by non-aviation US Army personnel including officers serving in the 82nd Airborne and the 101st Airborne; even Gen. Douglas MacArthur was known to wear an A-2 jacket. But whether they were the pilot of a B-17 with 25 missions under their belt, a P-51 Mustang fighter ace, or a member of an elite parachute infantry regiment, those who were authorized to wear the A-2 wore it like a badge of honor.
The A-2 has been a perennial favorite among our customers for years and this newest rendition will no doubt prove to be just as popular. It’s made from the finest mil-spec cowhide available and is manufactured to the highest military quality standards and specifications. Based primarily on the current-issue USAF goatskin version (but with a few small differences like slightly more narrow, tapered epaulets)
