Who has the largest selection of Indy-style Jackets?


The Indy-style  jacket is known far & wide and is also an integral & significant part of a certain fedora-wearing, bullwhip-toting, tomb-raiding professor of archaeology. Whether dashing through the jungle or racing across the desert, the jacket protected this silver-screen icon from all the elements. US Wings offers the largest selection of these popular jackets in a variety of different leathers, including our Legend version (which is based on the specs of an original movie jacket) and an authentic kid-sized version. Regardless of which version you choose, our Indy-style jackets are not mere “fashion” jackets but are tough & rugged enough to stand-up to your real-life adventurers!

The Indy-style jacket was an integral and significant part of the makeup of the INDIANA JONES character.  Neil Cooper originally conceived the first pattern for the INDIANA JONES movies by combining features of the Air Force A2 and the Navy G1.  Eliminating the cuffs and waist band from the A2 and then adding the Bi-Swing back, small side gaps & side adjustment straps with rectangular sliders, the RAIDERS jacket was born. There have been multiple jacket manufacturers who have contributed to the four INDIANA JONES movies but it has been verified that the pedigree originated with Neil Cooper and He in fact supplied 8 jackets for the TEMPLE OF DOOM.  There are subtle changes to each jacket as the series evolved and the US WINGS 30th Anniversary LEGEND jacket is based upon the specs of one of the original movie jackets from three decades ago.  Whether produced in Featherweight Antique Lambskin, Texas SteerhIde  or Kangaroo, these aren’t mere “Fashion” jackets and are tough and rugged enough to stand-up to your real-life adventures.

US Wings has introduced a new Kangaroo Leather Indy style jacket that Indiana Jones aficionados have proclaimed the Indy jacket: “THE Indy jacket came last week! The jacket is from the US Wings Legend line inspired by the jacket Harrison Ford wore in the first Indy movie RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. The jacket is manufactured here in the US and is now available in Kangaroo leather and if Indiana Jones had been a real person, and he’d had access to THIS leather…THIS is the jacket he’d have gotten.  This is the jacket Indiana Jones would want to wear. It is nothing short of amazing!  The color is perfect, the leather is just as dense and tough as iron, everything about it screams Indy!  The thickness on the leather is astounding, I can’t believe how strong it feels as compared to its thinness!  And I can tell that it is going to relax and drape just beautifully!!! After one week this jacket has already started to soften up.  I am continually amazed.  It is forming to my body far faster than I thought.  Here are some pictures  below that show the jacket brand new, out of the box, and one week later.  It is simply amazing.
