Introduced from 1946 to 1949, the L-2 is the masterpiece of the light flying jacket, used mainly in warm weather and summer. The L-2 was the successor of the A-2, which was to replace nylon as the main fabric from leather. The design is based on the B-15, removing the mouton shearling collar, and replacing it with wool knit collars. The leather was replaced due to inconsistent sourcing and the evolution of jet engine aircraft. The L-2 was only produced for a short span quickly replaced by the L-2A making it a rare jacket in the vintage industry.

** 3 zones existed in pilot uniforms (Heavy, Intermediate, Light, classified with how high the altitude was and the temperature the pilots would be in during combat). **

The zippers are vintage CONMAR zippers from IDEAL. The main zipper and the sleeve zipper are copper oxide. The collar and cuff are from a wool blend(70% wool/ 30% acrylic), and the cuffs are tubular and have are no-seam rib-knit cuff.
