First introduced in the early 1960s these jackets remain state-of-the-art in regards to design and quality. The A-2 Deck Jacket is the direct successor of the iconic N-1 Deck Jacket and has been issued to sailors for the harsh conditions of Navy deck work. Compared to the N-1 model the A-2 was significantly updated to fit modern standards, using lighter and more functional materials, e.g. the lining was updated with a soft yet super warm nylon pile made changes to the collar, and added a breast pocket and hem adjuster. In addition, Later versions until the 1980s were made in satin fabric similar to the M-65 jacket, color OG107, and the pocket flap was changed from a triangle to a flat flap. Long story short: the A-2 Deck Jacket amalgamated the best features from the past with modern standards and became one of the U.S. Military’s most comfortable and useful jacket designs.
