Originally designed in the 1950s by the U.S. Air Force, the mid-weight MA-1 Flight Jacket has since become an American icon. From Cold War operatives to tough guys like Steve McQueen – it’s been a favorite of servicemen and civilians alike. At the NRAstore, we’ve taken this classic and transformed it into your new favorite CCW garment!
The features that separate our version from the rest are the left and right concealment pockets that nicely mask your self-defense sidearm. The pockets’ Velcro® linings adapt to the included holster, which can be custom-positioned for your most comfortable, rapid draw. Snap closures keep your firearm secure during daily duties.
The rest of the design remains true to the original. A premium, water-resistant nylon exterior with a poly fiberfill lining makes up the meat and potatoes of the NRA MA-1 CCW Flight Jacket. Just like the original, the NRA version includes left sleeve utility pockets, a beefy brass zipper and knit collar, cuffs and waistband. We added an Old Glory patch on the left sleeve, and we even kept the hi-visibility orange lining as an emergency locater.
Come on over to NRAstore to check out this updated classic. Brand new for the fall, it’s sure to be your go-to CCW jacket!
