The Aviator Jacket
A sleek and contemporary re-design of the classic Aviator Pilots' jacket. Made for riding and a lifetime of everyday wear. *Shown with optional pin.
Hand-crafted from 100% Full-grain American Cowhide, the highest echelon leather available. Made in our Los Angeles studio. All cut from one hand-chosen cowhide.
Shearling collar option: There's no question why old-time bomber pilots sported real wool collars, the warmth and comfort it provides is unparalleled. Select the "Shearling Bomber collar" option to experience the luxury of a time tested material integrated into your jacket.
Weather resistant: Hand-applied wax seals out the weather to keep you dry during unexpected downpours
2 Way zippers. Allows for the rider to customize the bottom length of the jacket to suit any riding position. Prevents the jacket from bunching up while riding motos with aggressive posturing. We use American-made G2 Zippers By UCAN LA.
The best quality leather available. As you wear this jacket the high quality leather will naturally break in and fit your body like a glove, part of the beauty of full grain leather is the story it tells after years of wear. Our jackets are meant to last a lifetime. Free re-waxing is included with every purchase.

I have had my aviator for a while now and use it mostly for the bike rides. It is the best and most comfortable leather jacket I have ever had! It breathes and moves with you on the bike. Thanks for the great job! Gunnar K

Hi Vktre, Just put my order in 2 days ago. Will let you know what I think when I receive the jacket. Thanks, Gunnar
I made this purchase thinking it would make a great "city-only" jacket because normally leathers that look this good don't offer freeway/highway speed protection. Not the case! Fully loaded with the Knox armor they sell, this jacket feels like it can take on anything. With the supple leather used it feels like a second skin, very comfortable. If you're going to go higher speeds might as well ride with the armor, it's one of those flexible types that harden on impact like D3O, I say this because it integrates so well in to the jacket sometimes I forget it's even there. Huge fan of the double ended zipper feature, every motorcycle jacket should have one. It really comes in handy. The zipper is the best quality I've had on a riding jacket hands down. I wear this jacket frequently whenever I go out, bike or no bike. Only thing I can think of that may be a draw back is that the snaps need to be worked in a little, brand new they are tough to snap in and out. I noticed that after using it more the snaps seem to "work themselves in" and get easier. Weird. But its kind if a non-issue once I put some miles on the jacket. Looking forward to seeing more great gear from these fellows. -Daniel, Knoxville TN
Thanks for taking the time out to write a review, Daniel! Your input is much valued. As you mentioned the large snaps on the Aviator jacket will ease in over time. The metal used in these top quality snaps is much more rigid and durable than most, causing them to be initially harder to press, but the advantage is that they will eventually ease in and last a lifetime!
