  1. 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.

  2. 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 7/28/10)

  3. 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.

  4. 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 7/28/10)

  5. 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

  6. 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,

  7. 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.

  8. Wonderful jacket Review by Calvin Chue (February 2006)

    Got the goatskin A-2 jacket today and it looks wonderful! I'm sure our co-worker will cherish it for many years. The custom printed liner is just perfect.

    Thanks again for an excellent product and quick shipping!

  9. Great! Review by Scott Shoop (January 2006)

  10. Thanks for an outstanding jacket Review by James R. Dole (February 2007)

    I recently purchased and received my Russet Horsehide A2 jacket. I am very pleased with the quality to price ratio.
    I gave the salesman/owner my height and weight and the suggested size was perfect. It is a bit stiff (a good thing) and I am told that with increased wearing of the jacket the fit/feel will only get better. Thanks again for an outstanding jacket. I look forward to purchasing the Medium Brown Goatskin A2 next. (Posted on 7/23/10)

Beautiful Jacket! Review by Joe
I had ordered a russett horsehide A2 jacket size 44R and it arrived in 4 days. The quality of the jacket is obvious--very well built! This is definitely not a "mall jacket". Unfortunately i had to return it for a refund as i ordered a size to small and am now waiting to lose more weight before ordering the proper size. ---Joe (Posted on 9/19/14)
Very nice jacket. Review by Jan
I just received an A2 seal brown horsehide jacket and I must say that I like it a lot.
My e-mails were answered promptly and delivery to the Netherlands after ordering was very quick.
I would not hesitate to make further business with flightjacket.com.
