For this plausible helicopter pilot jacket, we decided to blend nylon flight suits with MA-1 and CWU-type gear, in classic MF® fashion, to come up with the Helo Jacket. The ‘Space Age’ V-shape of the cuffs and the throat latch won't go unnoticed by the vintage clothing connoisseur.
For the shell we opted for a heavy mil-specs nylon twill and a non-emergency yet contrasting weather cloth lining. While the thick wool pile lining will guarantee warmth, the wool knit collar and wrist bands will help prevent the cold air from penetrating, making the Helo a heavy winter jacket of about 3 Lbs.
This MF® garment is designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in Japan by Sugar Cane Co.
