Product Description

CLEARANCE SALE - Limited Sizes/Colors. Sale is limited to units in stock. No Back Orders, No Rainchecks!

The Authentic Alpha Industries MA-1 Flight Jacket - often copied but never duplicated! This is the classic flight jacket made by Alpha for the military for over 40 years.

The Alpha Industries MA-1 Flight Jacket features a nylong flight satin outer shell with reflective nylon lining. It also 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.

This MA-1 jacket is reversible to bright orange, making it 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' first government contract for the MA-1 was awarded in 1963. They started producing the MA-1 flight jacket for the civilian population in the 1970s.

 Fun Facts about the MA-1

Why is the MA-1 orange on the inside?
In 1960, the MA-1 was changed to a reversible jacket with an orange lining instead of green. By reversing their MA-1 jacket to the orange side, downed pilots could easily be located by search and rescue teams.

What is the sleeve pocket on the MA-1 for?
This pocket was originally created to hold a pack of cigarettes.

Why is there a tab on the front of the vintage MA-1?
True to the original military spec, this tab was placed on the front of the jacket so that the pilot could clip his oxygen mask to it.

Why are the "pen bullets" sewn into the MA-1?
These bullets are sewn into the MA-1 to cover the tip of the pen when it is placed in the pen pocket, assuring that the ink does not leak on to the sleeve of the jacket.

Alpha Industries MA-1 Flight Jacket
  • Superior quality in material and workmanship.
    Marv's pricing and delivery is indisputably more attractive.
    A real good deal from a real good dealer.
    Thank You.
  • Pros: As Above.
  • Cons: None.
  • Excellent outer shell, great fit according to size.
    Inner lining is a little disappointing compared to the original MA1, which had proper dayglo nylon as opposed to this jacket's version of parachute-like orange nylon.
    However, the inner lining has pockets, which the former did not, making it more useful when turned inside out.
    Anyway, the inner lining is rarely used on the outside, which makes this kacket a super viable buy
Great Purchase
  • I don't pilot or anything, but from what I know this is a super quality jacket and it keeps me nice and cozy. I'd say it runs a tad big so I'm going to be returning my large for a medium.
great jacket
  • I originally bought the Knox Armory version of the MA-1. It was a cool jacket but I wasnt quite satisfied with the quality. So I upgrade to the Alpha version MA-1 is sage and man, what a difference! This jacket is so much better. The nylon is thick and the zipper is excellent. The cotton lined pockets are nice. It's now my favorite jacket. I had to order one size larger than I normally wear.
