US TYPE MA-1 FLIGHT JACKET 8279D-MODEL 3color [JJ169YN]
MA-1 is replacement of B-15 flight jacket series which this series were intermediate zone issued during the 50s.
There were 7 modifications made and were issued until the 80s.
At first liner of this jacket was grey, it was equipped with the same oxygen tab of B-15 (MOD) and ISC tab.
However, in the mid-60s the liner was changed to Blaze Orange for high visibility during rescue. When CWU-45 P was adopted in the late 70s, the color of the liner became the same color as the shell, Sage Green and it was mostly worn by air crew and ground worker. Our model is based on the Blaze Orange lining color MIL-J-8279D model, with smaller armhole and slim silhouette.
Like the genuine jacket, our product does not use polyester for batting, our batting is composition of 58% cotton and 42% pile, reenacting the ambience and cold resistance of the genuine jacket.
