The "G-1" leather jacket, with its particular "V" design to avoid snagging on the cockpit joysticks, is the most widely used jacket in the history of the US Navy, making it prestigious in itself and desired by aviation enthusiasts.

History 

From the first applications of aviation (1910-1920), the flight uniformity of pilots in general was focused on combating the cold and the impact of the air, for it adopted the clothing used by motorcyclists, examples of this are the use of airtight glasses, scarves, scarves, gloves, hats and leather jackets.

But if it was cold on flights over land, in those over the sea it increased exponentially because of the humidity. For this reason, in 1938 the US Navy pilots adopted the m-422 jackets, made of goatskin, similar to the A2 used by the US Army pilots, but reinforced with a sheepskin collar. It also had a bi-swing at the back and at the beginning of the lower part of the sleeves, under the arms, to facilitate the movement of the arms and the placement of warm clothing underneath.

In 1947, the official flight jacket was renamed G-1, and this design has been maintained to the present day. The era of massive use of jet fighter aircraft, with the beginning of the Vietnam War, makes it unnecessary to use these jackets in flight, so they remain on aircraft carriers and air bases.
