TAD’s MA-1 Flight Jacket Is A Tactical Tribute To The Mil-Spec Original

Dec 16, 2019

Category: Style

In the 1940s, one of the most iconic military garments of all time was birthed. The MA-1 Flight Jacket, which was issued to Air Force and Navy pilots in light of ever-increasing flight hours at higher altitudes, became a staple of the war’s most notorious airmen, and it wasn’t long until civilian companies started to mimic the style for a more casual consumer base. Now, the utilitarian minds at Triple Aught Design (TAD) have introduced their own take on the iconic outerwear piece.

The company’s MA-1 Flight Jacket arrives as a limited-to-300 collector’s piece that’s sure to spawn additional colors and styles in the coming years. Much like the original, the modern classic boasts a relaxed, concise silhouette that’s been outfitted with a slew of functional storage compartments, fully-zippered pockets, and ribbed elastane cuffs for unparalleled comfort and utility. A DWR-treated outer shell, moisture-resistant Polartec Power Fill insulation, and heat-regulating mesh grommets give the jacket a powerful orientation that’s characteristic of Triple Aught’s alternative garments, while a midweight nylon composition ensures hard-wearing longevity that doesn’t fall short in the realm of aesthetic prowess. The first run of the MA-1 Flight Jacket is available now via the TAD’s website for $295.
