I’ve been looking to buy another jacket. There is one of each of these for sale in my area. The LL Bean is their older A2 style American made with the one piece back and the Schott is their take on the G2 Raider. I own an LL bean jacket from this era so know they’re a pretty decent jacket. I know very little about Schott jackets other than what I’ve read. Would the Schott be worth spending about double for.

No. LL Bean is a solid jacket for the price.

This surprises me. From the reviews I’ve read I thought id Be told to go for the Schott, it’s about $100 more. I have a Bean jacket with the one piece back and know it’s a solid jacket. It has thinsulate lining the one I’m looking at doesn‘t. That’s why I’m interested in it. The one I’m looking at says Flying Tiger Jacket, the one I own doesn’t. will that make a difference in quality?
