When it comes to choosing a flight jacket, functionality is non-negotiable!
Since its introduction in the late 1930s, the G-1 has remained the standard issue gear for the US Navy. Returning to the G-1’s roots, Cockpit USA’s versions remain true to the jacket’s origins. Using the earlier military spec patterns calling for use of genuine muton fur collars and 100% goatskin leather, the Cockpit USA G-1 collection is proudly made in the USA. Our Z2108M G-1 has been updated for versatility. This modified style features a removable fur collar and side entry pockets for multi-seasonal wear.
Combining the perfect balance of heritage and style, featured here is menswear influencer Mustafa Kacar, who classically styles our G-1 here, both with and without the collar. Some of our G-1 styles may differ subtly, but they all have the following details in common: two front button flap pockets, a front zip closure, knit cuffs and waistband, and a bi-swing back built-in for added mobility. Whether flying high in the skies or grounded on the city streets, the G-1 Flight Jacket, with a removable collar, offers function and style but remains a timeless classic.
We have been making the "Mil Spec G-1" for over 48 years, supplying versions to US Naval, Marine, Coast Guard aviators, as well as allied naval forces. Our G-1 Collection is available to shop here! Order yours today!
