A mid-weight flight nylon with water resistance and scads of versatility, the MA-1 Navy fighter pilot jacket was the first military flight jacket to cross over into civilian fashion. Our nylon flight jacket includes knit cuffs, a knit collar and waistband, as well as a strong front zipper with storm flap for warmth. There are multiple snap-closure pockets as well as the utility/pencil pocket with the Remove Before Flight keychain. Our MA-1 jackets are reversible to bright orange, making them ideal for rescue missions and other times when visibility is imperative. This current version has been kept as close as possible to the classic specifications (dating back to the early 1950's) and also received several revisions during the 1960's. Alpha Industries was founded on the belief that the U.S. armed forces deserved protective clothing that was of superior quality and delivered outstanding defense against extreme climate conditions. From our start in October 1959, the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) awarded Alpha contracts to produce jackets for American service members, including iconic styles such as the N-3B parka and the MA-1 flight jacket. Alpha grew rapidly during the 1960s, as the Vietnam War led to a substantial increase in DOD production contracts. Lessons learned from intense battlefield experience also led to new technological advances in fabric and the manufacturing process. Alpha soon began producing infantry jackets, including the iconic M-65 Field Coat made legendary during the Vietnam War. Today, Alpha Industries is known around the world for its high-quality, military-inspired outerwear. We continue to produce the classic military silhouettes that are core to our heritage, as well as modern innovations in style and function. Our top sellers include the MA-1 flight jacket, the M-65 field coat, the Slim-Fit N-3B parka and the G-1 leather bomber. But no matter the jacket, coat, or bomber, one thing will always hold true, the Alpha three-bar label will always represent the superior quality that we base our very reputation on.

Columbia Platinum 860 Turbodown Hooded Jacket - Men's Bright Red, M
Color: Bright Red
Columbia used a combination of its synthetic Omni-Heat insulation and 860-fill hydrophobic goose down to make its Men's Platinum 860 Turbodown Hooded Jacket. The result is a puffy coat that won't let you down when things really start to get cold. Lying just below the down, the Omni-Heat insulation is designed to provide better breathability and pull moisture away from your body more efficiently than natural down fibers, so you get the best of both worlds. The Omni-Heat reflective lining reflects your body heat back to you, thanks to small shiny circles peppered through out the face of the fabric. The goose down is treated with a water-resistant finish, which helps it maintain its loft even if it gets wet, and the Modern Classic fit is a regular cut that lets you move without getting too big.
