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. The initial series was produced in Navy blue to symbolize the U.S. Navy before it eventually changed to Khaki.
This is a reproduction of the 1943 version of the 1st Type N-1 jacket. The cuffs are wool, with gaskets and a gun belt under the arm. The wool lining is light brown. These are details that remain true to the original.

Nothing really beats this jacket when it comes to value. I recommend following the size guide and compare the measurements to another similar item you already have. I prefer to layer this one and it works great
This is a coat with good materials and good workmanship. So warm, it seems to be wrapped in a blanket and suitable for the winter in Northern California. This time I ordered size 40. Make sure there is enough space in the chest area. If the sleeve is one inch shorter. It will be perfect.
The N1 is really amazing. Good tight. Relly warm. The size is smaller than the normal, but the balance price/product is unbelievable.
One of my best shopping ever!

I'm 5'10" 175 lbs, 39" chest, 33" waist, 29" inseam. I already reviewed the Heavyweight 15oz Selvedge Jeans. As for this N-1, wow. This is easily as nice as a 400$ Made in USA varsity jacket I own. The details are incredible. The jungle cloth shell is heavy duty and windproof and the wool-poly lining is soft enough to wear with a T-shirt. Living in Southern California, I don't have much use for it but I wear it every chance I get. This thing is warm into the low 40s with just a T-shirt; I imagine with layers, it would keep me warm down into the teens. As for fit, the "one size down" advice is kind of right. I'm between a 38 and 40 in my suit jackets, so I can wear either one depending on the cut of the jacket. This thing fits like a slim fit if you buy it true-to-size, probably a regular fit if you buy it one size up. I like a slimmer fit on my jackets so I went with a size 40 and it's great. Also, being heavy cotton and plush wool, over time the cotton will soften up and the wool will get more and more packed down, loosening up the jacket about a half size. Bronson has a really strong design aesthetic and this things fits right in. If you like what you see on this website, this jacket is for you and will serve you for a long time.
Nice item, far smaller than described.
Bronson 1943 N1Deck Jacket. This one came much earlier then expected via DHL, Ordered it Nov 2, on Amazon, arrived in 8 days I'm like wow! waited a month for the first N1 3 but I paid express shipping this time since I had a coupon, Jacket is once again amazing great work Bronson team, wore it as soon as it arrived, fits a slight shorter on waste and arms same size 38 like the N1 3rd, already ordered a flight Jacket will post when it arrives next, keep up the excellent work Bronson.
very satisfied customer
Fantastic Jacket! Sized up from my usual size 36 to a 38 as recommended. The fit is great, and as the wool lining is so thick I doubt much layering will be needed. If you want to layer with a thicker sweater etc underneath, consider even sizing up x2.
Great jacket, great fit. Good price. Be sure to order one size up your regular size, even two sizes if you prefer roomy fit with plenty of room for your thick submariner woolen sweater.
Fantastic jacket ! Love it.
Looks great, amazing quality, will definitely be a returning customer
so good...I bought another one !!!
Very satisfied with the product, very good quality and very warm jacket.
A lot of models of N1 jackets on the market but for me Bronson is the best.
