At the end of WW2 jets replaced propellers in airplanes and in 1950 the leather bomber jackets pilots wore all during the war were succeeded by the sleek MA-1 made of nylon . The old jackets especially, the shearlings, were too big for modern cockpits crammed with equipment. The new one was lightweight with a slim insulation. That made the jacket more practical for year-round wear and helped shed water as pilots walked out to their planes. The all wool navy flyers cap still remained popular, but a newer version in the same gunmetal nylon began to appear. Here it is. All Gunmetal 100 percent, 5 oz., Nylon Cap with Durable Water Repellent Finish. 3 Firm Visor. Leather Sweat Band. Adjustables are Leather Strap with Bronze Buckle.
