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. US Navy produced the initial series in Navy blue to symbolize the Navy before changing to Khaki.
The US 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 N-1 Deck Jacket is from the sub-brand(Non Stock). It differs from Brand (Bronson) in its thinner outer(11.5 oz jungle cross fabric) and more cost-effective polyester inner.

Great as, always by Bronson. Got a size 40 (I'm 185cm/75KG) and it's bang on for me. To be honest, the acrylic lining is not even noticeable as any different to the "authentic" lining so why pay more? Top notch.
This N-1 is bang on fit-wise (size 40 fits me at 185cm/75kg) and and always, the quality and attention to detail is perfect. Most of my repro wardrobe is Bronson and it all sits next to the authentic vintage wonderfully. 100%
Well made and looks great. Fast shipping and awesome quality for the price. Fits true to size but slim fit as per the original design so size up one size if in between sizes.
They are all cool jacket. Made with excellent workmanship and quality materials. Even though I already had the L2A and N-1 deck jacket(navy blue), I couldn’t resist ordering them again.
Nice thick and warm coat, great for the cold days in winter. I like the collar that you can be raised to protect your neck from the wind. I am 1.83m (6'), and weight 61kg (134 lbs) and it fits correctly. However it maybe miss an inner pocket, to store your phone or wallet.
I love this jacket! In "generic" sizing, I wear a large. I have a 44" chest and got a size 44 with the help of Bronson customer service and it fits great!
Every thing is great but the zipper would be great if you could get a more robust zipper like in a Carhart — it’s just like my foul weather jacket that kept me warm on the USS Nantahala AO-60 in a North Atlantic crossing winter of 1966

As usual, an excellent jacket that fits perfectly well and a must have for a workwear style. I recommend!
Quality is spot on. As is the style and fit. Extremely pleased with all of it. Well done. And thank you.
Great jacket. Not very heavy and not very thick. For 180 cm/ 78 kg size 42 fit perfectly. Many thanks Bronson team for support and quick shipment.

I had an actual N-1 in the '60's, loved it, wore it to death.
I have tries a few other, more modern "clones", but they were disappointing. One had light, way too light material for a shell, another was similar but with short comings on the inside.
THIS one, since it is high summer here, hot and humid, remains untested, BUT! The fit seems great, the outer shell is substantial, and the linings will keep me warm in the cooler times of year. Even the in-sleeve cuffs are spot on!
I am looking forward to cold weather. *I* will NOT be cold! This is what I have been looking for.
Jacket is good fit, good quality and extremely warm for the weight. Very happy with it.
New favourite autumn and winter jacket. Sized up so I could layer it. Have my eye on the navy blue version for next winter. Amazing quality as has come to expect from Bronson.
Merci à vous tous
Absolute quality jacket... superbly made and is rugged and durable.
Check your size though as I had to go one size down from my assumed size.
Amazing price for a jacket that should last a lifetime.
An absolute great jacket, amazing quality, beautifull details, looks and feels absolute authentic.
And do use the chat function if you feel insecure about the size to buy.
I can recomend this jacket it is a very good buy.
Sleeves are way too long ,they should be a little more trim. Not everybody have very long arms. That's the only thing I didn't like about it. As far as quality and construction of the jacket both of them are great. Customer service was excellent. Neo was really helpful through the whole process,from the beginning to the end.
This is a great jacket! Very warm during our Northern Michigan winters and has been holding up well. My only complaint is the zipper is not the best but does work alright for now. Just disappointing in a jacket of this quality and price to have such a cheap and clunky zipper.
Ho fatto il marinaio a la Maddalena dove ho conosciuto il giubbotto di navigazione americano e italiano, fino a trent'anni fa si usava.Dalla seconda guerra mondiale agli anni 80 era quello il giubbotto dei marinai imbarcati. Sono sempre stato innamorato di questa "giacca da ponte". Ho scoperto per caso la Bronson mfg e devo dire che fa dei giubbotti che sono la fedele riproduzione del deck jacket n1.
Anche se io lo ricordo solo color kaki a me è piaciuto il blue navy.
Quello che indosso è taglia 38, mi sta un po' troppo giusto. Sono alto 1,80 cm per 80 kg di peso.
probabilmente avrei dovuto prendere la taglia 40 per poter mettere anche un maglione, ma va bene anche cosi con una maglia fine sotto.
Prossimamente comprerò, quando saranno di nuovo disponibili, anche gli altri colori.
Bought as a present for my partner. I initially purchased the wrong size, but exchanging it for the correct one was really straighforward. The quality is amazing (especially having seen some off the shoddy knock offs on the market) My partner LOVES the jacket and practically lives in it.
Love the look , very warm ,received great comments from my friends,also they wanted site to purchase their own ,I ordered a 44 but I’m now going to order a size 42 (44 a little big) in olive when they get in stock
Ottimo negozio giacca perfetta ne comprerò un altra prima o poi
Loved the coat. Bought for a gift. Great service
Took awhile to get here but my Dad loves it.
Really like the jacket, so much that I ordered a real wool version. Quality is great for the price. Size was a little big (I ordered the 44, I'm 5'8" 185lbs) but it shrunk down a bit after a wash and dry. Ordered that real wool in size 42 as a result. Covid shipping was slow (six weeks from purchase to Toronto) but it was shipped immediately after order, so can't blame Bronson for that. Would recommend.
Best Jacket I now own!

Excellent, great value for money, tracked delivery, would definitely order from this site again
Looks wonderful, even with the faux fur instead of alpaca. It’s warm, fits well (size up for sure) and remain patient. Shipping comes from China to some distribution center first, then you’ll get tracking from there. I’m enjoying it!
I have the N-1 jacket in Khaki,
Size 42. It fits great and I’m very happy with it.
Thank you, Jim
Great jacket for nice price
Great coat! Excellent fit!!!
Very well made , arrived quickly and was just as advertised .
Very nice quality jacket-repro of original. Maybe size up a bit. These were originally made for men in 1940 age 18-24. We’ve gotten bigger!
Need i say anything? This is my second one!
Very pleased with this super comfortable and beautiful jacket. Way above my expectations. Bronson MFG really nailed on this one.
I love It. It is very well done even if the zipper doesn't look strong.
Now for the size scale up I normally wear a medium size, I got a L that is the 40.
Great looking jacket, feels very warm and comfortable to wear!! I ordered another one for a friend. Just make sure you order up a size.
I wish the tailoring on the sleeve opening were better crafted. Nonetheless the overall look is great and I would order more from these guys. Warm. Good value.
Pretty fast shipping, given what is going on right now. Jacket is beautiful, being 5'6", the 38 Size is good, just a tad snug in the chest, I might order the 40
Over all the jacket is great, love the old school look!
Arrived far quicker than expected (esp, given the global situation). Great fit and quality. Now just to wait 3-4 months until it’s cold enough to wear it. This will hopefully do me for years to come.
Great jacket looks great good quality and fits great.
great jacket thanks
Well made jacket. Nice and warm. Great value and ordered a second one
Good product. Strong ans comfortable.
Very nice jacket,for the price...The shape and quality fabrics are great...
That jacket is awsome!
Nice working of this jacket, I thought the external shell particularly was done well. Nice & warm
