The Spirit Leather Flight Jacket

You'll love the warmth and vintage style of our leather flight jacket.


The leather flight jacket was a vital piece of high-altitude survival gear. Cut for ease of movement in the tight confines of the cockpit, the flight jacket also needed functional details, such as easily accessible pockets and the ability to insulate without being bulky. Our genuine leather jacket pays tribute to aviation's pioneers, with a rugged, antiqued finish and a removable genuine shearling collar. The pure cotton twill body lining and polyester sleeve lining provide an easy fit over any outfit. Rib-knit cuffs and hem. Five exterior pockets, plus slots for pens; two interior pockets, one with button closure. In brown. Professionally clean. Imported.
Sizes: S(34-36), M(38-40), L(42-44), XL(46-48), XXL(50-52); about 28" long in size large.

    What I hoped for - 12/8/2014

    This leather coat is exactly what I was looking for. I conducted an extensive in-store and on-online search. Medium thickness of leather for lighter weight. Could be a bit thicker. I found the coat to be full size. Plenty of room for thick sweater. I am 6', 243#. I just received the coat recently but find no fault. Looks great. Very comfortable. Medium to cold warmth but light enough to wear in 40 plus temps.

    It makes even me look good - 12/8/2014
    By: from Abilene, TX

    I've wanted a classic flight jacket for years, and kept getting more and more enticed to order one with each new Orvis catalog. So I finally did. I love this jacket. It's just dang near perfect. Weathered but not overdone like some other ones are. Soft but sturdy leather and quality construction with a heavy duty zipper. I love the shearling collar. This jacket is warmer than you think it will be on cold days. After reading all the reviews I ordered a medium, although I typically wear a large. The medium fits perfectly....looks almost tailored to fit me (I'm a 44 regular). For those concerned about the Orvis logo on the sleeve, it's no longer good move Orvis. I'd recommend this jacket to anyone who needs to go from office to field and back again while looking "professionally rugged" in both settings. It looks great with Orvis ultimate khakis (which is all I wear by the way).

    a cool flight jacket - 12/8/2014

    This jacket is everything described in the catalog description. The leather is very soft. The jacket is very warm. A neat feature is the detachable fur collar. I feel like I should be flying an airplane.

    Glad I waited - 12/4/2014
    By: from Western North Carolina

    Wanted a weathered flight jacket for a long time. Wanted to buy this jacket last season but they were sold out of my size (XL). Opted for the Spirit leather vest instead. Love the vest, so this season I ordered the jacket. Glad I waited because Orvis nixed the logo on the shoulder with the new version, which I did not want anyway. Runs true to size.

    This jacket is perfect for anyone with a career/lifestyle that is constantly changing from being in a corporate conference room to an aircraft hangar to a construction site visit to meeting clients for cocktails. It can be dressed up or down as needed and looks cool in all those settings.

    perfect when flying plane - 10/22/2014
    By: from Concord, CA

    My son just received his pilots license. He was overjoyed when he opened the Orvis gift box and tried on the flight jacket. He flies a small plane and says the comfort is ideal and that the pockets are easily accessible as stated in your description of the jacket. He says he feels like an Ace. Thank You Much
