The Signature Series Vintage Cowhide Indy-Style Adventurer Jacket is constructed from a very special pre-distressed cowhide leather. The Vintage Cowhide is handmade of grade A top grain leather, vegetable drum dyed, and hand inspected by American Craftsmen. The leather is from the same tannery that supplied the leather to the studio to create the on-screen jackets worn by the star of the 2008 movie featuring that famous fedora-wearing archaeologist. This leather, which duplicates the look of the movie leather, is a very soft chocolate brown cowhide and features a variety of graining, scuffs, range marks and distressing to give it an authentic “vintage” look. The Vintage Cowhide Indy-Style Adventurer Jacket are not churned out on an assembly line, but are handcrafted from handpicked hides to ensure the utmost quality. This is a jacket that any adventure-seeking archaeologist would be proud to wear and one that is truly rugged enough to handle your real-life adventures! A US Wings exclusive. Made in the USA.

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 Signature Series Vintage Cowhide Indy-Style Adventurer 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.
