10MA1203-005: “The Ultimate Bomber”
Our first product is the classic MA-1 Bomber. We kept the essence of the MA-1 the same, but made sure that each component was upgraded. For example, our Matte Black fabric is bonded and backed with a rubber sealant for water resistancy. The rib used is a variable poly mesh that when stretched, opens up for heat release and breathability. We are using Talon Zippers – the same used on the original MA-1 as well as the Apollo astronauts space suits. We also repurposed the nylon oxygen tab to be a functional pocket – a detail found on the original – perfect for AirPods. Our snaps are machined puck like flat snaps, for easy one handed closure. We also completely redesigned the cuff to have an optional ergonomic glove, perfect for gripping bike handlebars.
Like the original MA-1 ours is completely reversible. In place of the Safety Orange lining, we opted for a Matte Black Half Tone Camouflage, that is Iridescent Reflective. We love riding bikes, but safety is our biggest issue – more importantly not being seen on the road at night. Our solve was to use this Reflective Camo as a way to be super visible and instantly communicate to other motorists on the road. The Iridescent Reflective is bright and mimics those warning signals found in nature.

Lastly, we needed to create a location for your most sacred every day carries – but didn’t want to create a feeling of busyness with over designed pockets. Our solution was to create a hidden utility pocket found on the Camo side, that covered your three most essential items. Phone, wallet and keys. So we added a D ring, water resistant zip and large pocket for the ever growing phones. As a bonus feature, we added a reversible zipper to the utility pocket allowing you to “tuck in” the jacket to create the perfect travel pillow when you need it.
Classically understated and packed with details that are incredibly subtle yet sophisticated.
