When nothing but the real thing will do… this authentic russet brown Horsehide A-2 men’s leather flight jacket will meet your requirements. Horsehide was used during the 1930’s and 1940’s by the USAAF when hides were abundant. Manufacturers changed to Goatskin in later years, but Horsehide ’til this day has always remained the preferred choice for discerning pilots. Nothing wears like Horsehide; as it ages it develops a patina for a rich antiqued look. It is also extremely durable and will provide years of wear – many Horsehide A-2 Jackets from WWII are still around today!
