I like this jacket a lot. It is lined without being super heavy, so great for transitional weather. It is cut very narrow. I have broad shoulders and narrow hips and while the Medium fit my shoulders I couldn't get it zipped, so I went with the Large. Not as fitted across the top as I might like, but not so baggy as to be sloppy.

I purchased this jacket at my flight school during my pilot training approximately 15 years ago. The current version is exactly the same and has been for generations. Although stylish this jacket is extremely practical since the fit and materials make it easy to move around being strapped into a seat and not having a lot of excess getting in the way. The ability to reverse the jacket to safety orange is useful during outside preflight and in situations where being highly visible is required. Owning this jacket and wearing it hundreds of times has shown little wear and it always comes out of the washer looking great. You really can't go wrong with this jacket.

This jacket is so comfortable and cute. I was worried that it would be boxy or baggy, but it fits really nicely and can either be worn with a thin t-shirt underneath, or a sweater if you have to layer up. The green is a nice pop of color.

the snap on one lower pocket apparently caught on something when the jacket was packed and tore the fabric; it doesn't bode well for durability when that snap needs to be pulled every time the pocket is opened. the jacket was returned

Best deal on alphas you're going to find. No other flight jacket compares. if youre skinnier go with a slim fit, as the regular fit is on the puffy side.

This seems to be a really well constructed camo jacket. A very similar prototype to an actual military issued jacket, with great details. My only issue is for those of us with athletic, muscular backs and shoulders, it doesn't have any stretch. So if you are smaller but broad shouldered, even a medium without the stretch can be restrictive. Will be fine for wearing around. Is medium weight as opposed to lightweight. I'll still give 5 stars because it does say it's cotton twill so they didn't mislead.

Great!!! except the string to close the buttons frayed and I can’t close it anymore. Major bummer! Zappos said they would replace it however, winter is almost over now and Zappos never got another one in stock to replace it. ????????

Great looking jacket. Classic field coat. Although the one I received had a slight tear in the front. Not the quality I expect from Alpha. Probably a lemon. Either way, Zappos made resolving the issue easy with the return. Thanks.

Awesome timeless design. Good quality overall. Made for bigger frame. If you are a skinny guy or more into modern fit then do yourself a favor and get the Alpha Industries MA-1 Slim Fit (sizing down on these will only make it fit tight on all the wrong places). These jackets are based on military specs and are made to be worn over lots of layers.

Great looking jacket with timeless design. The coat is surprisingly warm. Material is a sturdy canvas and doesn’t feel cheap like some generic brands. Sleeves fit tighter than traditional M-65 jackets but they still run about a whole size big. Too bad I normally wear XS and they don’t make this jacket in XXS.

Great Jacket overall. I had the jacket for years & they still shine. Awesome original look of MA-1 flight jacket but with modern fit. Love the way it doesn’t my arms don’t swim around inside. In terms of size don’t be afraid they are “slim fit” I normally wear XS/S & these jackets fit more like S. So my recommendation is to not size up unless you wanna look silly. Get em right. Get em tight. My friend is 6 160lbs and he can wear my XS as well.

Best parka ever. I’m 6’0 175lbs and a medium fits perfect even when layered with a sweater. Plenty of pockets and great style. We had sub zero temps for over a week and wind chill of -34 degrees and I was comfy.

I’d been eyeing this jacket for some time and finally bought it. When I first tried it on, I was more than a little skeptical. It felt boxy and I felt like I couldn’t pull it off. I almost returned it. I decided to give it a try the next day and thank god I did, because I have absolutely fallen in love with it. It I super comfortable, keeps you so cozy and adds instant, effortless style to jeans and a T shirt. If you’re on the fence, I’d recommend buying it and letting it sit with you for a while. I don’t think you’ll regret it.

I am very pleased with this coat. I am 5' 5'' and average weight and I couldn't decide between purchasing the small or medium but ended up picking the small (olive color), which fits perfectly. This coat feels well made and has a nice weight to it. I like it so much that I am considering purchasing the camo, too.

Very nice looking jacket but i wouldn't recommend it to anyone w wide shoulders or an athletic build. Im about 5'5'' 140lbs, and the length was ok but i could not raise or move my arms comfortably amd had to return. I will try the regular fit instead
