Description

You'd be hard-pressed to find a more authentic military jacket available on the commercial market. That's because this nylon MA-1 Battlewash Flight Jacket from Alpha comes with a traditional blood chit sewn between the shoulders.

A blood chit was a notice sewn into or onto flight crew jackets, bearing the American flag and often written in several languages. If a plane was shot down in an allied region, the blood chit identified its bearer as friendly and asked for assistance.

Alpha began making the MA-1 in 1963 for the U.S. military. To get a jacket any more realistic, you'd have to enlist.
