Alpha's MA-1 flight jacket with 'Blood Chit' sewn on the inside lining was a type of flag that contained a message in several languages identifying an airman as a U.S. Aviator if they were shot down, to aid the airman in avoiding capture and in being returned safely to U.S. Forces. A reward was offered for this assistance. This is a classic flight jacket made for the military for over 40 years and features nylon flight satin outer shell with reversible orange nylon lining with the Blood Chit sewn into it, front closure storm flap, knitted collar, cuffs, and waistband and Alpha signature zippered utility/pencil pocket. The "Battlewash" line features a wash effect to give it that Battleworn look.
