For sale is this Aero M422a size 42 which fits a little more like a size 40. Measurements are Waist: 20". Chest: 22". Sleeve length: 25, Shoulders: 19.25". Back Length: 26". Made by Greg (at Aero Leather) of extra thick goat-hide by special request. The inside is heavy cotton drill as opposed to rayon, in order that it be even more durable. The knits are double knit all wool A2 knits, for even more durability as opposed to the single knits of normal M422a's. It has a vintage brass Talon zipper. It's in perfect condition, and was never worn (aside from for pictures). Ships in its original box from my smoke free home. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Thanks for looking!

I'm looking to get $1000.00 US. I'm open to offers. I accept paypal.



USN Type M422a


Not to be confused with the vastly inferior current issue Type G1, this is the real thing, just what Commander Richard Byrd had in mind when the first jackets were commissioned back in the late 1930's.

This is an original pre-war spec US Navy Type M422a goatskin flight jacket, just like the ones supplied to the legendary American Volunteer Group better known as "The Flying Tigers"! Made from tough, thick, vegetable tanned Dark Brown Indian Goatskin, like the originals, with that unmistakable hard wearing fine pebble finish that, for most jacket makers, is just a distant memory or an un-obtainable dream.

Made exactly to the original specifications, two button down pockets, the left containing a hidden pen pocket, bi-swing back, underarm gussets, genuine US made Brass Talon zip and a choice of Rust or Dark Brown Mouton collar with throat closure under the collar for extra wind protection.

Our jacket has a lining with an original style compass pocket with stud fastening inside the left hand facing
