Wow.... Should be interesting . Would like to see a picture or design of one as well.
( I can’t believe they called it a “ Bomber Jacket” :rolleyes: Now they’ve given the term legitimacy )

From a quick look, the bomber jacket is to be like the two other jacket options being introduced, all in a darkish green/brown color called "heritage green". All soldiers will have the option of wearing a leather bomber jacket as outerwear. The bomber jacket will have gathered knit cuffs and waistband, though with no shearling trim. Timeline for release isn't clear due to COVID-19.

I also saw it called a "Marshall bomber style jacket". Perhaps someone here might understand that specific jacket reference.

....Not counting the US Wings version that was discussed here months ago.
Wasn’t that the Naval Surface Warfare jacket that’s we discussed back then. It resembled the AN-J3 jacket I think. Is that the one you’re talking about Ed?
I don’t remember discussing a US Army leather “bomber jacket”.
