Pilots used to sit in an open cockpit and were therefore exposed to all kinds of weather. However, the pilot jacket offered them good protection from wind, rain and cold. At www.genxtreme.de models are available that pick up these practical features and therefore offer you outstanding comfort.
Pilot jackets - a development from the early days of aviation
When inventors and scientists made their first attempts at flight towards the end of the 19th century, no special equipment or even work protection was necessary. The altitude and speed involved were so low that everyday clothing was perfectly adequate. But over the course of a few years, aircraft became more and more powerful. This exposed the pilots to severe stresses such as extreme temperatures. Therefore, good protection in the form of a work jacket was indispensable. Initially, long leather coats with a fur lining were used for this purpose. Although these provided a lot of warmth, they restricted freedom of movement, making it difficult to steer the aircraft. After World War I, therefore, short leather jackets, as work jackets, became increasingly popular; until then, they had been particularly common among motorcyclists. In 1927, the U.S. Air Force had a new jacket developed that was based on it. To provide better thermal protection, it used knitted cuffs at the sleeves, waist and collar. The A-1 is considered the original model of the pilot jacket for men. It provides optimal thermal protection, but its short and wide cut still ensures excellent freedom of movement.
Modern designs of flight jackets for optimal comfort
Over the decades, the Luftwaffe repeatedly developed new pilot jackets. While the basic design remained largely unchanged, there were major changes in the materials used. Instead of leather, nylon was now used more frequently. This material was not only cheaper, but also significantly lighter. Nevertheless, it offered excellent protection against wind and moisture. The flight jackets soon found their way into casual fashion as well. Their high functionality makes them comfortable and convenient, and their striking design ensures that they also make an excellent visual impression. Modern designs differ from their predecessors in many ways. While the cuff at the waist remains as a characteristic feature, it is no longer present in many models on the arms and collar. The materials used are water-repellent and breathable synthetic fibers.
Pilot jackets men - The comfortable work protection
Pilot jackets or bomber jackets are classics and are indispensable as leisure and work jackets. Thanks to modern materials, the work jackets are mostly water-repellent and robust. Thanks to their inner lining, they keep you especially warm. The lining of the Molnson pilot jacket for men, for example, consists of quilted lining with special polyester, which warms better than cotton and is still breathable. Especially as a winter jacket, these jackets are ideal and are used in many craft professions.They offer high functionality in addition to a comfortable fit. Bomber jackets are equipped with many pockets and inside pockets, various zippers and some with removable sleeves. When choosing a new work jacket, the area of application as well as fashion aspects should be taken into account. Here at GenXtreme everyone can find the right flight jacket.
