What woman hasn’t pretended she was Amelia Earhart, a romantic daredevil playing it her way in a man’s world. This tribute to her bold spirit is an authentic copy of the jacket she wore during her aviation exploits of the 1920s and 1930s. Detailed with Amelia’s traditional patch pockets, side entry pocket, knit cuffs and waist, and trademarked full-zip collar, this supple Amelia Earhart Lambskin Flight Jacket is hand-fashioned from imported, vegetable-tanned lambskin. Brass zipper. American made by Cockpit USA. Sizes S, M, L, XL.
Each time a plane or space vehicle takes off, the wonder of its feat seems brand new.

Indulge your appreciation of early trailblazing aviators, whose pioneering planes, flight jackets, and other personal items are exhibited in our National Air and Space Museum.
