The aircraft carrier deck crew wore N-1 deck jackets during World War II and the Korean War. The thick cotton shell and alpaca or wool lining gave the deck crew the needed warmth and protection from the elements during extreme cold weather conditions. U.S. Navy produced the initial series in Navy blue to symbolize the Navy before changing to Khaki.
The U.S. Navy developed three “N” systems. In addition to the cold climate N-1, the N-2 system for rainy and the N-3 system for tropical conditions. Despite these climate divisions, old photographs indicate sailors rarely used these systems according to regulations, opting instead to mix and match to suit their layering need and preferences.
This is a reproduction of the 1940s U.S. Navy 3rd Type N-1 Deck Jacket. This version has no wool on the cuffs, no gun belt under the arm, contract number NXSX 70201.

Bronson do it again. Just superb. The fit is perfect in the chest but a little long in arms and perhaps a tad long but not by much. But that's me!
Only issue I had was the main buttons had be re stitched but I'm not bad with a needle and thread so no worries. All in all a great jacket.
Especially compared to the very expensive makes!
Probably one of the most accurate recreations of the iconic N1 jacket on the market today. The heavyweight corded material used in the shell is identical to the original fabric that was used in my original. I ordered the XL (size 42) and it fits me perfectly at 5' 7" 185 lbs. These do run a tad small, so just be mindful of that. Jacket is a bit weighty thanks to the 80% wool lining but it's warm as toast. I've owned several N1 jackets and this one by Bronson is by far the best. It's like getting a brand new original N1 right from the Navy storeroom. It was worth the two month wait.
Quality craftsmanship great reproduction.
Excellent quality, I would purchase more from the Bronson team in a heartbeat.
In terms of sizing, just get a tape measure. The size charts they've provided on the website are accurate to true measurements. Bronson does not vanity size their items, so just keep that in mind.
Very good transaction and good communication. Very happy with my Bronson N1 Deck Jacket.
This was the quality big jacket I wanted. In the past I have been stung with other brands but this Bronson N1 is the jacket I have been looking for for years.
Superbe veste ! Belle repro ! Matière robuste et semble chaude. J’en suis content et fier.
Je fais 1m77 et pèse aux alentours de 85 kg, la taille 40 est parfaite pour une coupe un peu ajustée. Merci Bronson MFG pour ce que vous faites ! (Thanks Bronson MFG for your work!)
Great jacket. Fits perfect. Can’t wait for the colder Melbourne weather to wear. It.
Exactly as described! Jacket was warm and made exceptionally well. Would order again.
My favorite jacket, perfect repro exceptional finishes
It was hard to find the right fit. 38 was too small, 42 is a touch too big. 40 would have probably been perfect.
I am however very happy with the quality. It is very warm, and this size allows me to wear additional layers to tackle colder weather in Spring and fall and even some winter temperatures.
Bronson's customer service was stellar. They were quick to respond, follow up with me and made sure my exchange happened flawlessly. For those of you in North America. Keep in mind that they have a return warehouse in the USA. Which makes it easier on your wallet for return fees.
I would and most likely will order from them again.
Thanks Bronson Team!
very nice quality jacket
Bought the faux fur N-1 in size 44. Liked it so much I ordered the wool version but in 42, as the 44 was a little too loose. The 42 fits just right (I’m 5’8” 185 lbs). Nice and snug over a long sleeved shirt, but not really enough room for a thick sweater underneath. It’s much warmer than the faux version though, so no worries.
Great jacket, very warm, well made. Think I could have gone for 40L.
I am medium UK. 5,9 and Weigh 71kg
Love the jacket.
Loving my N-1, Great quality and fit.
Nice alternative than finding a vintage one your size. For the price it is constructed really solid and accurate to the original. I found size 36 pretty good for to layer with a sweater or shirt/vest. As a women, a 34 may have been a lot better. But I can definitely later with this.
Shipping took about almost a month to get here. With COVID and delays, it took awhile to get to the US. But well worth it. Can’t wait to wear it until it’s beaten up.
Very accurate repo of original jacket . Very warm and very well made. It's a cool looking piece no doubt. Highly recommend
It’s very nice,good quality jacket
En general estoy encantado con esta cazadora, pero tbn es cierto que tiene detalles mejorables. Imprescindible reforzar las costuras de los bolsillos, en cuanto metes las manos, se deshacen. El forro interior es un pelín áspero, pero cumple sobradamente su función. La verdad es que merece la pena.
Great coat well built a and super warm
This jacket does not disappoint. Warmth, weight, and construction are all on point. Processing was great as well.
Now let's talk sizing - I'm 5'10"/160lbs and wear a size 38 suit jacket and I went for a size 40. I'm admittedly a big fan of the 'modern slim fit' and this size is perfect in my opinion - I've worn my denim jacket underneath and it was snug but manageable - though I could totally see sizing up to a 42 if that isn't your style.
All in all this jacket just looks and feels great. Do yourself a favor and get one.
Wasn't sure what to expect from a $175 coat but the quality has exceeded my expectations. Not big on buying stuff made in China but again I have to say it is a great coat for the price. I wore it today in 15 degree fahrenheit weather and it kept me toasty warm.
Love this jacket! Construction is of the highest quality and the fit is perfect. I am 120cm around the chest and the 44 fits nicely with a denim shirt underneath. Highly recommend!
Very nice jacket. If you like it a bit roomier, choose one size more than normal, runs small.
Material is very true to the original, processing is great as usual.
Hi! I really love this jacket. The only thing I didn't like is that both pocket materials broke. This was after wearing it a few weeks. I almost didn't want to believe they broke. Upon inspection the corduroy material is pretty thin. The original pocket material in original Navy jackets were thicker and more durable. I ended up finding similar thicker material and sewing new pockets in myself. The jacket fit pretty good and kept me pretty warm and toasty. I had thought there was an inner pocket to this jacket from looking at photos when I was deciding to purchase it. There weren't any, so I made inner pockets out of broken khaki colored pants. Despite the pocket material breaking, for the money to get a pretty good period correct looking Navy N-1 jacket I thought was. pretty good deal. I just wish the pocket material was made with heavy/thicker material that would last. Also some loose threads were showing up around the button holes and other. I know this isn't exactly made to military spec but when I see loose threads I kind of expect something to give/break. I do recommend this jacket to anyone wanting a descent repro of the Nave Deck N-1 jacket.
I probably would fit a Large better but my Medium is snug and warm and fits like a glove. I’m 5’11” 195 lbs and the length is great. I guess if you were 140 it’d fit like the model but I’m more than happy with it for winter wear.
Great Jacket very warm well worth the money
Great replica of the Deck Jacket N-1, fantastic material and really warm for cold weather.
I've bought the gift card at 150$ for a value of 180$ so i spared 30 bucks :)
I reccomended it for sure !!!!!
Tighter than expected. Still a good fit.
Well made and looks very cool. Fabric is stiff, but I expect it will loosen up with wear. Size up - I usually wear a 40, but it was too tight across the chest, so I returned it for a 42, which is just right.
Got this jacket a couple of months ago and it’s been *ideal* for the colder part of the winter - the lining is 80% wool and definitely keeps you warm. Build quality and materials are great too.
As for sizing these do seem to come up quite small; I’m usually somewhere between a Small and Medium and the 38 is perfect. I can’t fit a thick jumper under it (which is fine - there’s no need with the lining) but a sweatshirt or thick flannel shirt is fine.
Long story short: I’m really happy to recommend the N1, I can see it lasting a good few years and I’m not going to want to put it away come springtime!
I had the original version when I was
in the USCG back in the day
Love my N1. Great construction and materials. A very high quality product. Don't miss out. I'm 6' and weigh 185 lbs and I'm wearing a 42. It leaves a nice bit of space for my denim or a vest underneath.
Really nice Jacket. I recommend it for everyone!
Brought this for my son for Christmas. Really good quality, he absolutely loves it.
I have had my jacket now a few weeks and I love it. Very warm, comfortable and easy to wear. Well made, and fits your normal size when ordering. Good tracking service. No complaints at all. Would use this company again.
A very fine jacket at a reasonable price
It’s fantastic and I guess you‘ll also recognize the shirt :-)
Good Quality Jacket
Great jacket! Top quality for the right price. Highly recommended, but do size up.
Quality is very good, but it was just too tight across the chest. I am 5' 9" and 155 pounds, and I wear a 40 suit jacket and usually buy sweaters and casual jackets in Medium, so I ordered N-1 in a 40, but had to send it back. I may reorder a 42, but fear that the sleeves will be too long, as the 40 sleeves were just right.
Super smooth transaction, the quality of the coat is superb!
Very well made, everything about it is tough as nails!
Will definitely be a return customer!
First off, you really cannot beat this jacket for the price. Honestly. It is heavyweight for a repro - thick cotton outer and very warm 80% wool inner lining that goes all the way down the sleeves! Zip is good enough - brass.
If you want a 'modern slim' fit size up once.
If you want a more original 'Army workwear' 1940s fit size up twice.
I am a 36" chest at 5'9" slim build and went for a 40. Fit is great. Roomy enough to move in the shoulders with space for a jumper underneath. If I had gone for the 38 it would have been too slim to work in or for another layer. Plus the old school body fit matches my wider 40s cut denim.
Do check the measurements on a similar jacket you own before purchasing.
Note: The jacket is quite close around the pits with long sleeves. Sleeves are easily altered as the wool lining doesn't go past the storm cuffs.
Overall good job Bronson. You won't be disappointed by this good quality, heavyweight, warm jacket for such a good price. Keep up the good work!
Great build quality perfect
Very pleased with the Quality and fit. Arrived on time good value for the money.
Excellent product, identical to the original models that I have had, warm and resistant, serious company.
Item was exactly as advertised. It is just like the original which I owned for many years since WW2.
very easy pleasant experience ordering. Came quickly and the Jacket is as expected. It is a very good replica and to my eye perfect. I have a size 44 and it is a perfect fit snug and warm. I am 6' 1" and 170 lbs so it won't fill larger people. This is my third replica Navy Deck Jacket and by far the best.
Love the jacket but it does not fit. How do I get a larger size?
Should have ordered a larger size which wasn’t available anyway (48). It’ll make a cool present for someone else
This coat is ridiculously warm, but true to size. I had to get a size bigger. All lined in wool with accurate tags.
I’m really impressed how well this jacket is made. Super warm. Wish I had gone a size higher. Will buy from Bronson again.
Love the jacket. Just as I expected.
Size up! I'm usually a medium in other brands like J Crew and Banana Republic and a 42 (Large) fit me
big enough so that I can at least wear a shirt or sweater underneath comfortably. 40 was too small and I could barely fit it with a T Shirt so I sold it to someone else.
Other than that, great jacket. I like that the color of the wool is not too dark or light, just right in my opinion. Quality is good for everything at this point as well. For ~180 it's a good jacket.
Amazing jacket. Exactly as described on the website. Definitely worth sizing up. Seems to be very well made.
I love this jacket, exceptional quality, great fit and fantastic service from the Bronson team.
Would recommend sizing up, I’m 6ft , 180lbs uk medium, I ordered the 42 on Bronson’s recommendation...fits like a glove with enough room for another layer.
Shipping was fast ( 2 weeks delivery from time of order) and accurate. The jacket was accurately described online and identical to the photographs. It appears to be made of high grade materials and well fabricated. The outer material is a bit stiff but hopefully with use it will soften. Jacket is very warm at 20F. I am 6ft tall and 175lbs and the 42 fits perfectly. The wool lining is quite thick and extends through the sleeves leaving little room for an additional sweater if desired but as I said, the jacket is very warm by itself. Overall I am pleased with the purchase and can recommend this jacket.
- I’m 5,7. 150LBS. 38 chest.
- I wear a small Levi Trucker.
Was told to size up.
Ordered a 40.
The jacket out of the package fit well pit to pit. But overall the jacket was bulky. Big arms, long sleeves. Long shoulder seams. Ect.
I had put it through a machine wash cycle and dry. It fits perfect now. Would suggest doing so.
There is a big hole in the right pocket. QC could get better.
The jacket looks very good, I didn't test it outside because it's still summer but I'm looking forward to use it in the winter because it seems warm and comfortable. I bought a 36, with a t-shirt is perfect but with a sweater feels a little tight, it's a pity because the length of the sleeves is perfect and I think that a 38 would be too long. Consider going one size up especially if you will wear multiple layers under it.
It’s competitive with such a price, but could be better. All in all, it’s a nice deal.
Very good quality, the jungle cloth, wool blend lining, stitching, and the zipper, are all done well and feel durable. Size 40 is a good fit not baggy or too tight, I am 6’ and 165 lbs. The colour of the jacket is the same as the photos presented by Bronson.
tres beau blouon, tres bonne qualité de fabrication. taille 40 pour moi ( je fais 1,70 pour 75kg). je suis tres heureux de mon achat qui ne sera pas le dernier chez BRONSON !!!!
Excellent build and quality! Outstanding and responsive service in help with my delivery.
Fell in love with it.
Just take 1 size bigger look at the sizing reference
This is a fantastic garment. If you appreciate hard-to-find US Military workwear, you need this coat for cold and inclement weather. It is both utilitarian and fashionable. The jungle cloth outer turns water like a champ, and the wool/poly pile blend on the inner is the perfect insulator. A little puffy early on, but it seems to wear in very well.
Real Talk: Like everyone else says, it doesn’t fit like typical military over-wear. Don’t be like me and think you’re special. I wear a suit 38”, bought a 38” and it fits just like that. Great if you don’t want to layer ever, but that’s not how the navy sized these. Size up. I’m not returning mine, but just a solid heads up. Also, to that point, the chest runs tight. Decent room in the belly, but with a 38” chest, the neck would fit a 14.5”-15” a lot better than my 15.5” neck. Pocket seams aren’t meant much work. They’re sewn thin, and need some reinforcement with either stringer thread, or an additional fold over at the seam.
Bottom Line: Buy this jacket. Size accordingly. Note the shortfalls, but they are few. Thanks Bronson!
Good jacket and quality!!!

Well made and warm. Very good reproduction. I highly recommend its purchase to anyone who is looking for a good N1 deck jacket.
Excellent quality with reasonable price
Fantastic product, really well made. Great service, arrived promptly.
Great reproduction for a reasonable price. Swift shipping. Consider sizing up and check measurements carefully. Thick wool lining resulting in somewhat tight armpits and chest.
Jacket is fantastic, as noted in previous reviews, the sizing is snug so order a size larger. Quality is incredible, comfortable fit and great looks. Bronson is the "go to" online shop
Nice jacket , love it.
Very good service, sending a little long.
This jacket is warm and comfortable. Good reproduction of the USN deck jacket. Thank you
Warm and well made coat, looks just like the website. I’m wearing it everyday and I love it so much.
Love this jacket, really well made and super warm. I'm a UK large and bought this in XL and fits really well. Super service off the Bronson team
A very well made jacket. Consider sizing up one size if you plan to layer under the jacket. The wool lining is quite substantial.
Very good jacket. Good sending. And very good seller. Sending faster Will be more appreciate
Mr C H.
Great value repro N1 jacket. Well put together and very warm.
The measurements from the Bronson website are accurate, though I would say this fits slimmer in the chest area than a traditional N1 jacket would so be aware of that when ordering.
The jacket is everything I had hoped for, and more ! I am glad I got one size bigger, as it fits perfectly. Extremely warm ! Glad that I purchased it and having served in the Navy at one time, it brings back memories.
Nice product and good quality.
