The G-8 jacket (the stock jacket in the image is made of medium brown goatskin) was introduced into the service in the late 1920's as the official flight jacket of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corp flyers. The details on this jacket were an inspiration for many famous designs introduced through the movie industries.

But only one jacket is true to the original with all its fine details which includes: Double gussets under each arm provided for ease of movement in places which had notoriously small cockpits. Two large single-entry (double-entry available for no extra charge) button flap pockets, with radiused lower corners and a gently curved flap. Diamond shape patches on the arms, for double protection in the small cockpit. Side panel with strap and tab for better fit adjustments. Zipper-cuffs provides a snug fit that required in order to block cold winds in the open cockpit. Heavy duty #8 brass zipper, and wind-flap with the "USN" perforation. 100% Bemberg rayon lining will keep you warm in the air and on the ground (Thinsulate layer is available).
