A: They are original, new, unworn and current.
Q: can you tell me the chest measurement on the 5xl?
A: The size 5XL MA1 jacket measures approximately 37" from armpit to armpit so suitable up to about a 70" chest.
Q: Where about on the jacket is that A logo stitched & is it on the black jacket?
A: The 'A' logo is on a small label about half way down on the left sleeve in line with the classic red 'flight tag' on the zip of the pocket.
Q: Hi does the black alpha ma1 come with a black zip or are they all brass coloured?thanks
A: All the black colour Alpha MA1 jackets we have in stock come with a brass coloured zip.
Q: why is the zip on the right hand side asap thanx
A: Alpha Industries is an American company, and American jackets zip up on the right.
Q: do you get sick of ppl asking stupid questions over and over again :)
A: Of course not, we love answering questions :-)
Q: Is it the original item from the Alpha Industries?
A: These are the genuine Alpha jackets with authentic labels attached.
Q: is the jacket 100% water proof ?
A: No, only shower proof.
Q: Does the MA1 Jacket in (sage green) have a silver zip as apposed to the gold zip as shown (on black) in the picture? Tried to buy same jacket from AS shop in Liverpool but they couldn't get my size in large. Reason why asking because this looks the exact same one and i've been after one for months.
A: The ones we currently have in stock are neither and the zip appears to be also green. However, there are slight variations where some are green zips but with a silver line running down the middle where the teeth meet.
Q: As this is a genuine jacket does it have the remove before flight label on the arm pocket?
A: Yes it does.
Q: Could you please give me the weight of the jacket in Kg? Also, would machine washing ruin the item as Nylon & polyester are versatile?
A: A size large MA1 jacket weighs approximately 960g. This jacket should be dry cleaned only.

Q: Does this particular jacket have the Alpha motif embroidered into the storm flap & the red removeable tag attached to the arm pocket?
A: Yes, it has both.
Q: Do all Alpha Industries Jackets have the zip on the right side, this is unusual for a mens jacket in the UK
A: Yes, as Alpha Industries is an American company, all their jackets zip on the right.
Q: Please can you tell me, on this the MA1 can you comfortably get your hands in the outer pockets and leave them there whilst walking? I have a CWU/45P Alpha jacket but these pockets are too high up to use comfortably.
A: Yes, the pockets on the MA1 are lower than on the CWU. The pockets were intentionally made high on the CWU to stop airmen walking around base with their hands in their pockets!
Q: Before I place an order can you advise on size. Is a large the standard uk large?
A: Many customers say that these jackets come up a little on the small side, so if in doubt go for a larger size.
Q: Are you sure that this jacket has a bright brass zip? On the picture it looks to be plastic. I wanted one of these jackets for riding a motorcycle but with a zip that will not scratch the tank! Do you have such a MA1 jacket that would meet these requirements?
A: It does have a metal zip pull, and it has an extra leather piece attached to it.
Q: I will wish to know if Alpha Industries MA-1 Nylon Flight Jacket exists in white?
A: No, sorry.
Q: Do the knitted waistband and cuffs go baggy after washing?
A: No, but in accordance with manufacturer's instructions, this item should be dry-cleaned only.
Q: Has the black ma-1 alpha jacket got a heavy duty BRIGHT brass zip or a dull antique brass zip?
A: It has a heavy duty bright brass zip.
Q: Does it have any inside pockets?
A: Yes, it has 2 inside pockets, in the same position as the outer pockets.
Q: Can you confirm what part of the cuff is used to get the 19 inch measurment, is this to the knitted cuff or to the end of the cuff?
A: It is to the end of the cuff.

Great jacket and service
I ordered a bomber jacket from amazon and it was only 15, bargain I thought, until it arrived. It wasn't what I ordered and it was too small not to mention very thin and just cheap looking (as you would think for 15) so I sent it back. I then looked on mean and green and and saw the MA1 alpha flight jacket and even though it was 110 I thought sod it im having that. I ordered it early hours on the 14th Feb and it arrived today the 15th! Outstanding quality and excellent service yet again from this site. I immediately put it on and went shopping and was asked twice in the supermarket where I had gotten it from. It's warm, stylish and very good quality. Think I will be wearing this a lot. I'm a slim guy and was worried it wouldn't fit properly but I ordered a medium and it fits perfect.
Pros: Fits well, Looks great, Warm, Fully reversible
Cons: none
Sizing: Feels about right
Would recommend: Yes

Quality far beyond anything else. A second to none jacket.
Having owned a replica MA1 in sage green for the past year and a half, I had for quite some time been wanting a genuine Alpha Industries MA1. Decided after much deliberation that the time had come to purchase 'the real McCoy' as I heard Alphas own MA1 jackets were unlike any other piece of military clothing found on the civilian market. I can say without a doubt that after receiving my Alpha MA1, it is perhaps the most durable jacket anyone will find on the market. The sturdiness of the jacket becomes instantly noticeable when you put it on and you feel how well built and durable an item of clothing it really is. In addition to the jackets evidently tough build, the quality is something as well which deserves special mention. To say that the quality of Alphas own MA1 is outstanding would be an understatement as almost everything about this jacket has been done to the highest possible standards. Everything from the stitching to the zips is of the highest quality and will definitely be noticeable to anyone who has worn one of the lesser quality replicas found in surplus stores. In summary, Don't feel tempted to buy a cheaper replica. Do yourself a favour and buy Alphas own MA1. You'll be glad you did!
Pros: Excellent fit, Unparalleled quality, Sturdy, Timeless look
Cons: none
Sizing: Feels about right
Would recommend: Yes

Very very happy
I'm totally happy with my jacket. Being female I found it really difficult to get a bomber jacket with proper proportions. I've gotten perfect fit on the body with sleeves that only a T-Rex would fit and perfect length sleeves with a body that belongs to a 6ft Man. It left me little faith when I'd see xs. My local charity shop must have wondered who the weirdo was constantly giving away brand new bomber jackets. Truthfully I got what I paid for this time, which is quality. I was twice as happy when it arrived super quick. Nice one mean and green :-)
Pros: Perfect weight, Looks and feels quality, Great fit.
Cons: none
Sizing: Feels about right
