This is a reproduction of the first version MA-1 flight jacket, introduced in the 1950s and becoming the flight jacket of the US Air Force. This model is quite rare in the market. This MA-1 flight jacket is completely reproduced in the 1955 MA-1 flight jacket(SPEC. MIL-J-8279). It is made from a custom-made fabric that authentically replicates the celadon color and characteristics of the highly durable nylon material from that era. Utterly faithful to the original version in detail, even the size identification on the label corresponds to a different STOCK NO.
Nylon 66 was invented by DuPont Co. Nylon 66 is more flame resistant and durable compared to other nylon fibers. Bronson has studied the original Mil-Spec formula to replicate its yarn, density and weave.
