  3. Great jacket and great customer service Review by Chris Begley

    I recently ordered a horsehide A-1 jacket from you, and wanted to write and comment on the jacket and the customer service.

    First, the jacket -- it's great. I am an archaeologist, and I use the jacket to work in, so it takes a lot of abuse -- walking through briars in the woods, a lot of dirt and mud, and a lot of wear from carrying equipment, packs, etc - similar abuse as if worn while working construction. The horsehide is tough as nails, and while stiff for the first few weeks, it loosens up where you move, but stays tough and very resistant to scuffs, scratches, etc.

    I would advise potential customer to order your an A-1 in your normal suit jacket size or a size smaller if you are of athletic build, because the jacket seems to be a little roomy - perfect for use at work.

    As much as I like the jacket, the customer service is even better. I had to return a size 44 for a 42, and Mr. Dover took care of everything with great courtesy and enthusiasm, even expediting the shipment of the second, smaller jacket before the first jacket had been returned to him -- he knows how to treat a customer. You truly can order from US Authentic with no-risk -- that's why I'm ordering again from them. That kind of service is as important to me as the jacket.

  4. Amazing quality Review by Brendan Mills

    I received my A-1 yesterday I was amazed at the jackets quality . I ordered the goatskin version and was very happy with the thickness and texture of the leather.
    This is an outstanding reproduction of a transition era flight jacket right down to the button loop on the wool collar.
    I was also very please with the help U S Authentic Representative gave me over the phone and the internet. my next Jacket will be a sheepskin B-3 . or may be an RAF Ir*** Jacket !

  5. Perfect Review by Troy Hoehne

    Received my A-1 in record time and can confirm that it is everything it was advertised to be. Pity the army isn't bright enough to still issue it. (Posted on 7/28/10)

  8. My new favorite jacket!! Review by Anton Revenaugh

    Just now got the jacket, in record time too and I am breaking it in as I write this note.
    You are a pure genius! The A-1 is beautiful in everyway, in every detail. I look forward to test driving it hard and starting the long road to breaking in the horsehide. Though I suspect my grandchildren's children will still be using it. Absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for the beautiful button work. As authentic as it gets! WOW!
    My new favorite jacket! I am so glad the rain is coming I can not wait to put it through its paces!

    Thanks Shaul, You are a true artist! (Posted on 7/22/10)
