Our US Wings Cape Buffalo Leather Vest offers excellent protection from the elements during temperate fall, spring or summer days while still providing the desired panache of a leather flight jacket.
The vest is based on our Cape Buffalo G-1 Jacket and features two front button-flapped cargo pockets with side-entry handwarmers, a pleated bi-swing back for freedom of movement, a full front zipper over a storm flap, a satin nylon lining with an inside pocket, a knit waistband, and a detachable vintage-style honey-colored sheep fur collar that can easily be put on or taken off depending on your mood or changing weather conditions. And because the vest is made from our antiqued Cape Buffalo leather, it has all the luxury, style & toughness you’ll ever need. Available in regular or long sizes.
CAPE BUFFALO G-1
Our US Wings® Vintage Cape Buffalo G-1 Jacket is the ultimate version of this venerable USN/USMC/USCG jacket! Iconic fur-collared flight jacket of naval aviators. Widely popular due to the 1986 movie Top Gun. Made of leather from one of the toughest and most dangerous non-endangered big game animals in Africa. With this pedigree, it’s no surprise that our Vintage Cape Buffalo G-1 is one of the toughest & most durable jackets we manufacture. Making it ideal for aviators, bikers, adventurers or anyone else who needs or appreciates an ultra-tough jacket that’s made from a truly unique leather. But as tough as this jacket is, it’s also very refined: the antique brown cape buffalo leather has rich & varied graining and is wonderfully soft and rich looking, with a weight that makes it a true three-season jacket. This jacket has the style, the look, and is affordable. Great 3 Season Jacket!
