When nothing but the real thing will do...this authentic Horsehide A-2 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 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! In Long version from 42-50.

HoT HorSE!
my favorite a-2 now! this jacket proudly proclaims on the lining, ''American Horse'': according to federal law no u.s. horsehide can come from anything else but natural death horses...no horses killed for hides, pet food, etc...so i do see the jacket as honouring the animal...for those who care about that... otherwise, the jacket is amazing...it has the squared off and trim fit of military spec sizing, and everything else on this jacket is all milspec! the sizing being military you must get one size larger to fit like your civilian size, and i''d recommend the long version...tho $30 more, these run short, like belt high almost... ...this jacket looks very authentic to ww2 styling and dimensions...it ...this is totally authentic to all milspec aspects and looks superb...as for horse vs. goat... horse appears to be a bit lighter weightwise, warmer, and of course stiffer/stronger requiring wonderfully a bit more of an enjoyable break-in period... this jacket scores 100+ out of a hundred!
