The Women’s Army A-2 Jacket is fitted specifically for women! An authentic reproduction of the WWII A-2 made for the Women’s Air force Service Pilots, WASP. When worn by women, the standard Men’s A-2 can be ill-fitting. Our Womens Army A-2 has the modifications most wanted by women. It’s roomier where it needs to be and features shorter sleeve and body length.
For the first time in more than seven decades, the Women’s Army A-2 Jacket will make its triumphant return to active duty to the US Army and will become an officially issued jacket once again! For authorized personnel, the A-2 will be an option to go along with the Army’s new WWII-styled service uniforms. US Wings, who is already an official supplier to the US Military, will also be one of the suppliers of this jacket to the US Army!
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.
