The overall style of Alpha Industries’ L-2B Hooded Flight jacket is slick and of obvious quality make. The fabric and lining are 100% nylon, and the cuff is acrylic, while the collar is a mix of acrylic, polyester and spandex. It is very comfortable and fitting for a jacket, loaded with several features and pockets, and of course, dynamite aesthetics. The left breast is fitted with an Alpha Industries patch, which can be removed to represent whatever you would like; which is where the American flag would naturally go if you are part of the military.
Other features include pocket at elbow length, which comfortably keep your hands away from the elements, and on the insides, there are two inner pockets of about the same size; each closes with a button. The left bicep has the traditional zipper pocket with two thin and long bullet pockets. Beyond the traditional look and feel, and fit of the flight jacket, this edition includes a cotton hood that can be removed at will.
