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 U.S. 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 is a reproduction of the 1940s US Navy 3rd Type N-1 Deck Jacket. This version has no wool on the cuffs, no gun belt under the arm, contract number NXSX 70201.

Another quality item from Bronson!
I’m 5”10 and 202lb and chose a 42… it’s most comfortable with a single layer under but I can get a sweatshirt in too but why would you..
this jacket is warm!
Can not be happier great jacket fit 100% read up on reviews on lots of over makes but so glad I went for this one and delivered in less than 2 weeks bring on the cold weather
Couldn't be happier with this purchase!! Awesome addition to my wardrobe
My favorite jacket, perfect repro exceptional finishes
Loving my N-1, Great quality and fit.
This jacket does not disappoint. Warmth, weight, and construction are all on point. Processing was great as well.
Now let's talk sizing - I'm 5'10"/160lbs and wear a size 38 suit jacket and I went for a size 40. I'm admittedly a big fan of the 'modern slim fit' and this size is perfect in my opinion - I've worn my denim jacket underneath and it was snug but manageable - though I could totally see sizing up to a 42 if that isn't your style.
All in all this jacket just looks and feels great. Do yourself a favor and get one.
Very nice jacket. If you like it a bit roomier, choose one size more than normal, runs small.
Material is very true to the original, processing is great as usual.
Well made and looks very cool. Fabric is stiff, but I expect it will loosen up with wear. Size up - I usually wear a 40, but it was too tight across the chest, so I returned it for a 42, which is just right.
Love my N1. Great construction and materials. A very high quality product. Don't miss out. I'm 6' and weigh 185 lbs and I'm wearing a 42. It leaves a nice bit of space for my denim or a vest underneath.
First off, you really cannot beat this jacket for the price. Honestly. It is heavyweight for a repro - thick cotton outer and very warm 80% wool inner lining that goes all the way down the sleeves! Zip is good enough - brass.
If you want a 'modern slim' fit size up once.
If you want a more original 'Army workwear' 1940s fit size up twice.
I am a 36" chest at 5'9" slim build and went for a 40. Fit is great. Roomy enough to move in the shoulders with space for a jumper underneath. If I had gone for the 38 it would have been too slim to work in or for another layer. Plus the old school body fit matches my wider 40s cut denim.
Do check the measurements on a similar jacket you own before purchasing.
Note: The jacket is quite close around the pits with long sleeves. Sleeves are easily altered as the wool lining doesn't go past the storm cuffs.
Overall good job Bronson. You won't be disappointed by this good quality, heavyweight, warm jacket for such a good price. Keep up the good work!
Great build quality perfect
Excellent product, identical to the original models that I have had, warm and resistant, serious company.
It’s fantastic and I guess you‘ll also recognize the shirt :-)
Size up! I'm usually a medium in other brands like J Crew and Banana Republic and a 42 (Large) fit me
big enough so that I can at least wear a shirt or sweater underneath comfortably. 40 was too small and I could barely fit it with a T Shirt so I sold it to someone else.
Other than that, great jacket. I like that the color of the wool is not too dark or light, just right in my opinion. Quality is good for everything at this point as well. For ~180 it's a good jacket.
Amazing jacket. Exactly as described on the website. Definitely worth sizing up. Seems to be very well made.
I love this jacket, exceptional quality, great fit and fantastic service from the Bronson team.
Would recommend sizing up, I’m 6ft , 180lbs uk medium, I ordered the 42 on Bronson’s recommendation...fits like a glove with enough room for another layer.
Shipping was fast ( 2 weeks delivery from time of order) and accurate. The jacket was accurately described online and identical to the photographs. It appears to be made of high grade materials and well fabricated. The outer material is a bit stiff but hopefully with use it will soften. Jacket is very warm at 20F. I am 6ft tall and 175lbs and the 42 fits perfectly. The wool lining is quite thick and extends through the sleeves leaving little room for an additional sweater if desired but as I said, the jacket is very warm by itself. Overall I am pleased with the purchase and can recommend this jacket.
Fell in love with it.
Just take 1 size bigger look at the sizing reference

Well made and warm. Very good reproduction. I highly recommend its purchase to anyone who is looking for a good N1 deck jacket.
Great reproduction for a reasonable price. Swift shipping. Consider sizing up and check measurements carefully. Thick wool lining resulting in somewhat tight armpits and chest.
Very good service, sending a little long.
This jacket is warm and comfortable. Good reproduction of the USN deck jacket. Thank you
Warm and well made coat, looks just like the website. I’m wearing it everyday and I love it so much.
Love this jacket, really well made and super warm. I'm a UK large and bought this in XL and fits really well. Super service off the Bronson team
