Wonderful A2! Review by CRJ Driver

I have been an A-2 fan for a long time. Received an incredible seal brown horsehide A-2 for Fathers Day and I am thrilled! Wonderful attention to detail and flawless craftsmanship. Authentic WWII cut. Look no further for your A-2. US Authentic is the real deal and made in the USA! (Posted on 7/1/2017)

Sent my flight jacket in to have a new lining and zipper. Came back in like new condition in less than 8 days. Was amazed in the quality of the repairs but the speed was impressive. 8 days for repairs and shipping from New York to Arizona. (Posted on 6/28/2017)

Jacket is Great! The color is darker than I expected. At least it's not seal brown but it was close. Otherwise everything is good. (Posted on 6/26/2017)
It will outlast me! Review by Glenn

I bought one of these in horsehide years ago. It was certainly awesome looking, authentic and original spec, but just not as convenient as the other jackets I owned. I got a very reasonable quote to retrofit it with an inside pocket and side pockets and sent it back to them. Quick turnaround time! It went from being a "closet queen" to becoming my go-to jacket (it is now my favorite, and I've owned a LOT of leather jackets over the decades). It retained the trim look, but is now much more functional. Highly recommended. (Posted on 6/6/2017)
Good and bad Review by JustaJeepGuy

First, the service Shaul provides is excellent. No complaint at all there. I bought a horsehide seal brown A2 in a custom size. It fits well, but the leather is soft and squishy as though it's made for someone who is too lazy to break in his own clothing. I would not have purchased the jacket had I known the leather would be like that as I prefer to break in my own jackets. If I could count on a different leather treatment, I'd buy from US Authentic again. (Posted on 5/1/2017)
1998 Horsehide A-2 is DURABLE Review by Paul
Quality
Price

I ordered my Russet Horsehide A-2 from Shaul back in 1998. It is not perfect in that the epaulets are a bit too wide and the shoulder seam is directly over my shoulder which places the epaulets too far forward. Also, back in those days, a Scovill Gripper zipper was used. It's a great, durable zipper and works perfectly to this day, but doesn't quite look the part. It does seem that these issues have been addressed in current stock.

The jacket itself is super high quality in construction and materials and fits perfectly still. Of course, after all this time (pushing 18 years as I type this) the leather is fully broken in and supple with all kinds of wrinkling and graining depending on panel thickness and the part of the jacket the panels are located. The various hide parts are quite inconsistent which I actually like. It gives the jacket character and makes it more authentic.

The cotton liner was a dark brown color, not the lighter, orangey color of today's versions. It has since faded into a nice tobacco brown shade. It does have some small tears in it around the neck and waist, but I don't what to replace it yet due to the nice fade it now has.

The knits have held up nicely. There are some very tiny holes on the inside rear of the waist knit; I think it must have snagged something on occasion.

Shaul confirmed the hide is chrome tanned and the top coat is super durable. I've worn this jacket in the rain multiple times. In fact, it's the jacket I wear when I know it's going to rain. No problems. It remains supple as always. I've not treated the leather in any way and simply clean it with a damp towel.

I may have the epaulets made more narrow and moved rearward over the should seam (some vintage contracts were like that) just to satisfy my nitpickiness. A more accurate-looking zipper mod wouldn't hurt either, but the stock Scovill is still perfect serviceable.

In summary, this is the best jacket I've ever owned. (Posted on 1/12/2017)

I was in the market for an A-2 jacket for reenactments and almost went the "really cheap" route. I am so glad I didn't. This jacket is amazing quality and the service was absolutely great. This jacket is such high quality, comfortable, and looks great that I wear it all the time. I added the 101st patch and my own personal leather name tape as part of the order and they look great. I also added my own 506th patch above the left pocket and it looks perfect. Thank you all so much and I couldn't recommend this company any higher. (Posted on 1/4/2017)

Super Customer Service Review by BvT

I ordered the goatskin A2 around 5pm on the day before Thanksgiving and wore it on the Saturday after Thanksgiving (Yes, two days if you don't count the holiday). The leather is supple and of higher quality than my much more expensive USAF-issued A2 (current model, issued in 2009). The fit of the jacket is superb. It's not the baggy jacket that you usually find on-line, but it's also a little more forgiving than the tight, original WW2 A2.

Backing up, I wasn't sure which size to order so I called. The rep answered the phone on the second ring and with a couple of questions put me in the right jacket. I highly recommend this company. (Posted on 11/28/2016)
