  1. The highest quality jacket anywhere Review by Don Cisle (November 2008)

    Thanks for the wonderful jacket... and in record time too! You obviously had just that spec in stock! I've got to say that you guys make some of the highest quality jackets anywhere! While I don't have an Eastman leather jacket, I do have two of their fabric jackets; and while the quality is outstanding, for the money, you guys blow them out of the water! Thanks again, and keep up the good work.

  3. Fit and finish are excellent Review by Dennis Parry (August 2008)

    I've had my goatskin A2 for about a month now, and I love it! I have only been able to wear it around the house due to it being in the 80's outside, but the fit and finish are excellent,way nicer than the Cooper it replaced . I wonder why people spend hundreds more for other brands other than maybe authenticity (I guess I don't enough to speak to that). Thank you for a beautiful jacket and fast service.

  4. Very happy Review by Jason M. (May 2008)

    Just thought I'd let you know that I have been wearing my seal brown horsehide
    A2 jacket for a few months now. It is breaking in nicely as advertised, and I am very happy with it. I have had several people compliment me on the jacket, including one who was a retired air force colonel and wanted to know where I
    got it. Enough said. Thanks for a great jacket.

  5. More beautiful than I imagined Review by John Santiago (February 2008)

    The jacket is absolutely amazing!!!! It's much more beautiful than I had imagined, the details really touch my experience in VS21 and japan. Thank you so very much for the wonderful job. I will always treasure it!!!! (Posted on 7/28/2010)

  6. Superior in every aspect Review by James R. Bird, Jr. (February 2008)

    I have just received my horsehide seal brown A2. Its fits perfectly, close to the body as the wartime A2s did. The tex- ture of the horsehide replicates the WWII versions. in terms of "feel", I rate this jacket higher than Eastman! I have an Avirex and a Cooper A2, and your product is superior in every aspect. Your prompt service (2 days) is really
    appreciated.

  7. Exceptional fit and finish Review by Eric (January 2008)

    Received Horsehide Seal Brown A2 recently. Top notch quality and well worth the fair price. The thickness and quality of the horsehide is exceptional. Stitching and finishing is excellent. True military fit so I'd better not pack on the pounds! Thank you for such a quality product! (Posted on 7/28/2010)

  8. One of a kind Review by Brett Carter (August 2007)

    got my a2 today in the mail it looks fantastic fits well and will be the only one of its kind in the country the badges look great too it was well worth the money and time some people spend thousands on Italian leather jackets
    A2 jackets are not cheap but at the end of the day your getting a much stronger jacket then one from a fashion house and I think they look better as well and their a piece of history that has never gone out of fashion thanks again for a great job

  9. Amazing quality!!!! Review by Barry Franklin (April 2007)

    Just a note to let you know my custom A2 arrived safe and sound. Amazing quality!!!!!

    The custom pockets are really well designed! I suppose that the "purists" would not be too thrilled about modifying the venerable A2, but
    it is the definitive flight jacket and ex Canadian Air Force officers like mefor some reason always want a sleeve pocket. The inner pocket is great too, accomodating cell phone, wallet or even sun glasses.

    Thanks again! And here are a couple of photos of me with my A2 after I took it for its first plane ride.

    Cheers! And thanks again,

  10. Very authentic jacket Review by Jonathan Vigier (December 2006)

    I purchased an A2 horsehide seal brown jacket from you a few months ago. I have only recently had time to compare its details to those of the originals from the '40s : it comes out pretty well!
    What with the quality of the product and the excelent service provided by US Authentic I believe the jacket to be very good value for money.

Vintage Goatskin A2 Review by Eric
I was lucky enough to obtain a vintage goatskin A2 jacket in the sale section of the website. Thanks to Shaul's advice, I can say that the fit is perfect. The vintage goatskin is extremely supple and drapes beautifully right out of the box. The color and texture of the leather is awesome and the stitching is spot on. The delivery time was exceptionally fast and the customer support was great. This jacket compares very favorably with other more expensive A2 jackets that I have owned. In summary,I am very happy with the quality and customer service. Thanks Shaul!! (Posted on 8/7/2015)
Vintage A2 Goatskin Worth The Wait Review by Missileman
I recently purchased the A2 in Vintage Goatskin after trying the A2 in horsehide and sending it back. The goat was everything I was looking for - particularly the "vintage" color. The thing to remember with the reproduction A2's is that the cut is different than a modern issue A2, or CWU-36/p. My other A2 is a recent USAF issue in 46R as is my CWU.The WW2 A2 is a 48 to get approximately the same fit.

The quick order fulfillment is also a huge plus. I ordered it on Thursday afternoon and had it on Friday (to Connecticut).

I looked at all the repro A2's out there - even had a spreadsheet to compare and contrast - Goodwear, Lost Worlds, G&B, Eastman, etc. and selected US A for the value.

From my perspective as a former USAF Captain (Combat Crew Commander) we wore what we were issued. Some guys had new stuff, some not so new. The truth is that even issue grade jackets were different - even from the same manufacturer. So all the A2 jacketeers who count stiches/inch, size of the grommets, and other goofy stuff would do well to take a breath - I'd have no problem recommending a US A A2.

Best of the Best Review by Randy Jones
I've been a U.S. Authentic customer since their beginning, around 1998. It started because my uncle was a WWII AAF and later USAF B-24 and C-130 navigator. My sons are USAF & Army flyers. I've collected flight jackets from all makers, since I was 12. Some were well made; some cheap, expensive, or fairly priced, I didn't care. They were leather, cotton, nylon or Nomex. Again, I didn't care. I've love(ed) them all. My mother tossed 'em when I moved out; my wife said they cluttered the house & my sons stole them to give to their girlfriends. I love U.S. Authentic the most. Why? It is the best - has the most variation of types and kinds (A-2; B-3: etc), & will modify any & all for you: they make special orders, do anything you ask...not for the money but for your satisfaction. Their attention to detail & 'period' accuracy is truly "Authentic." They are the last of a dying breed, where the customer really does come first, no questions asked. I will be buried (but not too soon I hope) in a U.S. Authentic A-2!. Save yourself time, $$$ & headaches. Don't shop around, just shop at U.S. Authentic. You will always be completely satisfied.
