The bomber jacket design was created during WWII to protect our pilots during the long bombing runs over Europe (hence the name "bomber" jacket). The style was adopted by post-war pilots of airlines.
The elasticized waist and cuffs on bomber jackets keep air infiltration to a minimum. The full-cut body is comfortable for long periods. Ample pockets and lining are also design features of leather bomber jackets. Click on picture for more details and ordering information.
