A+ This classic A-1 is made with a very tight grain hide that blocks 100% of the wind. Though not made for the coldest winter days, I’ve found it perfect when correctly layered down into the 20’s Fahrenheit!
Wow! Bronson does it again. This leather A-1 flight jacket has just become my favorite piece of outerwear. Superb quality and perhaps my nicest fitting jacket in my closet. I've got a 42"-43" chest and ordered the "XL" (42") size. I was afraid it might be too small but instead the fit is just perfect. It's snug but in a form-fitting, complimentary way. I already own three Bronson nylon flight jackets and this one is a great, and perhaps the best, addition to the collection. The quality of the leather (and even the smell of it) is great. I can tell this is going to age beautifully and I look forward to any opportunity I have to wear it. I'm so happy with my purchase. Thank you once again, Bronson. Keep 'em coming!
I've been wearing this jacket constantly since the beginning of fall and have loved every inch of it! The quality is outstanding and I love the design. Very well made and built to last!
I love it!
Beautiful materials, modern cuts and attention to detail, congratulations Bronson!
