High Quality Leather Flight Jackets

Our selection of leather bomber jackets run the gamut from historical WW II designs, to law enforcement, airlines and motorcycle jackets in a variety of hides. Check out our leather flight jackets today.

The rarest and most beautiful original A-2 jackets were made from russet brown goatskin. While the Air Corps specified horsehide before World War II, contractors made a few A-2s from goatskin. Most are now in museums, amazingly, these original, 70-year old A-2s usually need only minor repairs because the leather is still in excellent condition with a warm, rich patina.

The Gibson & Barnes Mark 31 is a tribute to this rare, historical A-2. It is made from large, grade-A, vegetable-tanned goatskin that has been drum-dyed and pigmented the original Air Corps russet brown color. It is then lightly glazed. Goatskin is incredibly comfortable and light-weight, but also strong and tear-resistant. A-2s made from these hides have the same rich, warm look as the original goatskin jackets.

The Mark 31 A-2 also has the other features of the goatskin A-2s issued in the early 1930s, including a one-piece back, box-stitched shoulder straps, 1 3/8-inch wide storm flap, gracefully curved pocket flaps, and collar stand.

The pockets and collar are secured with size 4 black oxide nipple snaps and the neck with a nickel hook & eye. Under the storm flap, the jacket zips up with the required “interlocking fastening device”, now commonly known as a zipper.

The knit cuffs and waistband are comfortable and durable, made from pure worsted wool. Gibson & Barnes has even reproduced the original A-2 label design, complete with Air Corps contract number, and has marked the lining with the Air Corps insignia and authentic inspection stamp.
