A-2 Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldA-2 Flying Jacket - Manufactured by the Cooper Defense Contract Division for the USAF. Coopers obtained a contract in 1988 to supply a total of 53, 000 units and we understand this most famous WWII pattern also served with distinction during the first Gulf War. This example has been my personal jacket and was purchased new in 1992. It is in excellent condition and is only for sale as it is now a fraction small! It is sized at 42R (107 cm). No faults and a very wearable A-2, at a time when wartime examples are just too valuable to use on a regular basis.

It was initially equipped with Blenheims, but in 1940 converted to Hurricanes and Spitfires and fought with distinction in the Battle of Britain. The motto translates to "we fight by day and night".

Battle of Britain Period Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldBattle of Britain Period Flying Jacket - A superb and original 'Irvin' jacket as used by RAF aircrew in the early part of WWII. This example has the large panels synonomous with pre-war jackets before wartime shortages forced the economy of the multi panel designs, which although inferior in quality, made better use of available materials. It never appears to have had a label, so we don't know the exact date of manufacture, but the pattern and short cut pile sheepskin, make it early. The leather panels are unmarked and while the half belt shows some age wear, this is a true collector's jacket and is museum quality or better! Other than one zip puller tag missing and the other a later replacement, the jacket is hard to better. We consider this item too valuable to wear as it would be a disaster to damage the pristine leather, so it is for sale as a display example for the serious collector. This jacket is a decent size c. 41" chest (105 cm)

It would be hard to find a better example of this classic flying helmet which entered service with the RAF in 1944.
