"Let me just say its the best fitting A1/A2 jacket I have owned. The quality of the leather and the cuffs and buttons are strong. As a comparision to the other high end A1's I have owned , I struggle to find any difference (other than the price !!!!) The knits - collar and cuffs and the lining are as good an offering as the top jacket makers.
"My jacket arrived this morning and I am extremely impressed. The accurate slim fit, the construction, and the quality of the knits are all excellent. And the leather! I knew it would be a soft leather, but the contrast with my horsehide A-2 is incredible. This A-1 feels like a second skin, and I can't wait to wear it in."

"I just received my Goatskin 37J1 flight jacket and I have to say that the quality is fantastic! The Seal brown color is a virtual match to some of the vintage USN jackets I own, and the graining is very nice. The stitching, knits and label are top notch as well. Thank you guys at Headwind Mfg Co for making an outstanding USN 37J1 reproduction."

"WOW! This jacket is much better than I could have ever imagined! I looked it over carefully and couldn’t find a single problem. Stitching, button holes, alignment and sizing… all perfect! I think you have captured and duplicated every single detail of the jacket. Amazing!
From my experience with this jacket, I would place Headwind as an equal to the highest tier of custom jacket manufacturers.
Thanks again for working on this custom project."
"Received the jacket today. It is perfect!! You nailed the fit. I am extremely impressed with the quality of materials, fit and workmanship. This is one of the most comfortable leather jackets that I have. Very supple capeskin and no restriction of movement. I feel this is the best fitting/looking jacket that I own. Thanks again!"
