Tops Apparel MA-1 8279A Jacket

Price: $100.00 (used condition) — note shipping costs below
Fit: this jacket is a comfortable fit in the correct size
Shell: sage green nylon
Knits: original sage green wool
Thread: nylon
Zipper: original Conmar, and Crown sleeve poclet zipper
Size: Large

This is a very cool vintage MA-1 jacket from the 1950s. The jacket is from the A series, so the wind flap has a rounded top, but it still has the vox tabs, oxygen tab, and USAF stencil on the shoulder. The inner material of the shell pockets is sage green, too. The jacket is very solid, and the knits have held up well, with a few tiny holes in the collar only.

The shell and lining are very solid. The flat photo makes the front look a bit dirty, but it's not as much so, and the standing photos show the shell correctly. The zipper works well, as does the pocket zipper on the sleeve.

The jacket was used a bit, but it's not what we'd call beaten down, and has many year of use left in it. The Tops Apparel MA-1 contract is rather rare, as we've not seen many of them in our time of collecting flight jackets (try doing a search on this contract!).

The jacket is a bit smaller than what the wearer in the photos would fit best. Someone in the range of 5'9" to 5'11" and with a weight of about 170 would be most ideal for this jacket.
