The N-2A flight jacket was first introduced in the 1950s for specialised usage during the Korean War for members of the US Air Force operating bomber and reconnaissance aircrafts, designed specifically for the freezing temperatures of the Korean winter. The jacket features many mil-spec utilitarian features, including: A split-zip hood which allowed the easy fitting of parachute harnesses and freedom of movement when wearing a helmet, pass-through pockets to access interior garments and a zippered utility/pencil pocket (also called the cigarette pencil pocket).

The outer shell is made from 100% nylon, rendering it windproof and water-repellent, with a faux fur hood trim for warmth. The jacket is also fitted with a padded lining in order to keep the user warm. All these features made the jacket very popular amongst its users and the design was only slightly updated for its successor, the N-2B Flight Jacket.

CONDITION:
Used and in very good vintage condition with light signs of wear. The cuffs and waistband have a few holes, there are some scuff marks, and there is a mark above the cuff on the back of the left arm (as worn). An iconic bit of kit that is very hard to come by in this condition, especially considering its age of circa 70 years. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
