Coldsmoke MA-1 Bomber

The history of modern day bomber jackets can be traced all the way back to WWI. While ground troops were caught in trenches, countries relied on their air-force to gain higher ground on the battlefield. In turn, those pilots relied on their flight jackets to keep themselves warm in the open cockpits. Like so many things the military pioneered (GPS, the internet, SPAM), the jacket made its way into civilian life where it has thrived as a fashionable piece of outerwear for decades. Few brands, however, do the bomber justice like Coldsmoke has with their MA-1.

In many ways this American made jacket retains the look of the classic G.I. bomber. It has the telltale nylon outer, olive color-way, and heavy duty zippers – but what sets it apart is the way in which the Venice, California based brand managed to optimize it for daily wear in an urban environment. Along with using a tough Japanese DWR nylon and Polartec Alpha insulation for warmth, they gave the coat a slim and form fitting cut, included an internal media pocket, and used a custom knit and dyed shawl collar. All things said, it’s a truly stand out offering that’ll stave off tough weather and leave you warm and dry year in and out. Prices are set $340. [Purchase]
