INSPIRED BY LOCAL HISTORY

A WWII-inspired, hard-wearing flight jacket built for the cold.

BUILT FOR THE COLD

We're a Canadian brand, so we know a thing or two about cold weather. We know what it feels like when the moisture from your breath turns to ice on your moustache, when the skin on your face feels as tight as a bongo drum, and your bones feel so brittle from the chill they could just snap.

That's why we built our MA-1 Bomber Jackets for the cold. Made with a heavyweight 100% sage nylon shell, double thick filling throughout, and a wind flap that sits behind the main zipper to block the wind, it's basically an advanced thermal outer-layer that looks like a piece of vintage fashion.

INSPIRED BY LOCAL HISTORY

Inspired by the 424 Royal Canadian Air Force Bomber Squadron (known as 'The Tiger Squadron') once headquartered at 275 James Street North here in downtown Hamilton, just around the block from the shop, the Cold Weather Bomber Jacket is an authentic take on a MA-1 combat flight jacket.

The most period-correct feature of our bomber is the high-vis quilted Safety Orange liner. Traditionally, when fighter pilots were downed in enemy territory, they would reverse their jacket to be better spotted by rescue aircraft from above. We chose to stay true to this history.

Adding to the jacket's authenticity, the over-sized embroidered Never Tamed chest patch harkens back to the days of white knuckled-dogfights and high speed patriotism.

BORN IN THE SKY

Prior to the invention of fighter jets, pilots wore fleece-lined leather jackets. But the new fighter jets flew faster and higher, subjecting the pilot to extremely cold temperatures. If the jackets ever got wet, heavy and icey, it was bad news for the pilot in such a cramped cockpit. Rather than bulky leather, a sleek, lightweight yet warm jacket was needed for the new jet technology.

Enter the MA-1 flight jacket, with a sleek knitted collar that wouldn’t get in the way of a parachute harness, a signature orange lining that could be exposed in the case of a crash and a cost-saving heavyweight nylon that was superior to leather in its ability to keep the pilot dry inside and out

MA-1 jackets later became popular in the 70s with punks, mods and skinheads. During the 80s, they had extensive exposure in style magazines and on runways. Today, many police forces use them in cold temperature climates due to their sturdy construction and hearty insulation.
