Among the many types of flight jackets the MA-1 is considered the most popular. The development started in the early 1950’s and B-15 series as formal flight jacket were based since this time. It has been appreciated for many years for its functionality and comfort. The MA-1 didn’t develop overnight, years of research and know-how went into its development. The adoption of the MA-1 was evidence of the arrival of the “jet age”. It was developed to work with the updated aircraft equipment. The first MA-1 issued in 1957 was popular with U.S. Air Force aircrews. It was replaced in 1976 with CWU45/P. Modification of the MA-1 continued in a search for perfection. The MA-1 is now a strong influence in the world fashion market and sales for civilian use have surpassed military sales.

Tight fit, the Japanese producer has mostly  kept the original sizing specifications and also tried to reproduce it as close as possible to the original.
