What Is The Difference Between Ma-1 And Ma 2 Jackets?
The MA-1 and MA-2 bomber jackets are both iconic styles with a rich history as both flight jackets were designed for use by the U.S. military. While they share some similarities, there are also some differences between the two jackets. MA-1 was originally designed for the U.S. Air Force in the 1950s for cold weather flight conditions while MA-2 was developed as a colder weather version of the MA-1 in the 1980s, intended for ground crew personnel.
Besides that, the MA-1 has slash pockets, while the MA-2 has cargo pockets. The MA-1 also has an elasticated collar, whereas the MA-2 has a fold-down collar, and it stacks higher on the waist for a trimmer look. Moreover, the MA-2 has no snap-down epaulets on the shoulders, nor does it have the small triangular flap pockets that clasps closed at the center front of the jacket. The MA-2 is also available in two weights and is still the active-duty flight jacket for the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy.
Are Ma-1 Jackets Waterproof?
Although MA-1 bomber jackets are generally designed to be water-resistant, which means they can repel light rain or drizzly conditions for a short period, however, they will eventually soak through if exposed to sustained heavy rain. Remember ! The key difference between waterproof and water resistant lies in their ability to repel water. Water-resistant materials provide limited protection and can bead up and shed water for a period, but they will eventually soak through if exposed to enough water or pressure. The Enhanced MA-1 flight jacket is described as having a water-resistant shell for improved functionality, a feature which makes MA-1 bomber jackets suitable for various weather conditions, including light rain.
