Rothco N-2B Flight Jacket

A flight jacket is a a garment that was originally created for pilots, but has since become a valuable and popular apparel item among civilian cultures. It is sometimes referred to as a bomber jacket or bombardier jacket.

It's purpose was to keep the pilot warm, because many airplanes did not have enclosed cockpits at the time. It's heavy insulation and sturdy design set it apart from any jackets they used until the invention of the "flight jacket". Many military forces adapted this style jacket, including the United States Air Force sometime around 1917.

N-2B Features:

  • 100% nylon
  • Heavily insulated
  • Pile-lined hood with synthetic fur and zipper divider
  • Zipper closure with storm flap
  • Left sleeve zipper pockets with pen slots
  • Not a replica! The real authentic deal!
  • Hand warmer pockets
  • Knit waist and cuffs
  • Weather resistant
  • Available is multiple sizes
  • Rothco approved

Original models of the traditional military flight jacket included the A-2, G-I, and MA-1. The N-2B is not temperature rated, but some have said to have worn these military issued jackets in temperatures as low as -50°. This may have been special circumstance and still bitterly uncomfortable, as well as other factors in play, but it goes to show the quality of this outer wear.

Recommended Uses for the Flight Jacket:
  • Police force
  • High altitude living
  • Military applications
  • Snow storm preparedness
  • Cold weather hiking and backpacking
  • Extreme winds
We don't expect you'll be going on any bombing raids in the near future, nor will you be flying in a jet with a rather strong breeze pulling your body heat from the core. But it's feasible to think you might experience drastically cold temperatures and blazing winds at some point. A standard coat or little leather jacket won't keep you sufficiently warm. We promise the N-2B will satisfy your need for warmth.

New Navy style parka for the 'alpha man' coming soon! Similar products may include aviator jackets, cold weather parkas, and shearling flight jackets.
