    Very nice! Would that be a G1? Vintage, repro, or current?

    I'm into flight jackets too, but mine are all modern (only one A2, a few CWU 45/P's, two in Nomex, one Breitling nylon, a Nomex CWU 36/P and three nylon MA-1's in nylon with embroidery commemorating Operation Iraqi Freedom (was in Baghdad for several months working construction on the new embassy).

    Been thinking I should add a G1 to the collection. Any advice?
    Regards, T Bone.

    It's an M422a, by Gordon & Ferguson, one of (IMHO) best manufacturers of these jackets-which are precursors of the more modern G-1.

    My advice would be to get an original, as they are still readily available at decent prices, won't be for long though.

    I run a forum on these jackets:

    Check it out-lots of great info there
