Flying jackets, a superior aviator watch and a mini fuel bowser
Modelled on the WWII sheepskin jacket, this real leather flying jacket is lined with synthetic fur (main body) and trimmed with fur at the cuffs — fine for normal wear but beware of synthetics in aircraft (see ‘Safety Matters’, p.77). It has two external side pockets and one inner zipped pocket, with two belt buckle adjustment straps at the waist. A full length metal zip (which can be tricky to catch at the bottom) helps keep everything cosy.
Designed for men or women, adult sizes run from Small to 3XL. There is also a kids’ jacket in five different sizes (priced at £75.00). The jackets are available only in dark brown leather.
