First introduced in the early 1960s these jackets remain state-of-the-art in regards of design and quality. The A-2 Deck Jacket is the direct successor of the iconic N-1 Deck Jacket and have been issued to sailors for the harsh conditions of Navy deck work.
Compared to the N-1 model the A-2 was significantly updated to fit modern standards, using lighter and more functional materials, e.g. the shell changed into a Heavy Cotton Back Satin while the lining was updated with a soft yet super warm nylon pile.
With regard to specifications, the A-2 Deck Jacket incorporates the basic details of the N-1, such as the button and zipper closure for the fly front and the hidden rib-knit cuffs. However, the A-2 deck jacket made changes to the collar and added a breast pocket and hem adjuster.
