Schott® Flight Jacket

The men's traditional leather bomber jacket arose from the need of flight crews to stay warm at frigid high altitudes without sacrificing mobility in the tight confines of the cockpit. This classic bomber, crafted in America by Schott—supplier to the US military for six decades—is crafted from genuine cowhide leather with a removable lining of warm, plush pile. The fleece-pile collar is removable, too, making this jacket even more versatile than the originals. Wind-flap-covered full-zip front closure with cut-brass zipper. Snap-closed cargo pockets; one interior pocket. Gusseted underarms and bi-swing back for full range of motion. Functional epaulets. Rib-knit cuffs and waistband. Men's leather flight jacket in brown. Genuine cowhide leather body with polyester lining. Professionally clean. USA.Regular even size: 40. About 27" long in size 44.

"I have more leather than some ranchers, including Vanson and other high-end cowhide and horsehide jackets, both for fashion and for riding. No jacket I own comes close to the fit, finish and functionality of this Schott masterpiece. It is the best riding and fashion jacket I have seen. It is my first Schott, and it is my new favorite."

"I bought this as a present for my husband based on my memory of my father's flight jacket he received while in the Air Force. It is just as I remember Dad's, and my husband loves the fit and feel of it. The removable liner and collar are a nice difference though. The only thing we both wish this jacket had was an inside pocket when the liner is removed. It is super soft and supple. I would recommend this jacket, even without the inside pocket."

"I really like the style and color. The removeable fleece collar is very plush and will be great in cold weather. The removeable liner is also nice for flexibility although when taking the jacket off my hand tends to catch on the edge of the liner and pull it (a little hassle but not too bad). I like the looks better than most of the leather jackets I have owned or looked at. The leather seems to be good quality although I am not an expert there.
The negatives are: since it is by specific size rather than s,m,l,xl- I wound up having to return it twice until I got the size I wanted. Another negative is that there is only one inner pocket and it is part of the removeable liner (and not very secure). It would be much better to have several usable interior pockets (at least 1 zipped and 1 regular). Lastly, it is a bit pricey. That will be OK if it proves to be durable and will last me a long time.
I can't review much more because it is too hot outside to wear it yet. I can't wait for cooler weather so I can really see how it does.."
