    Thanks for this. I was looking at the French flight jacket in G&B's catalog and site, and even tried to find more info on it without much luck. I'm not sure if my screen/photos are different, but is it dark blue?

    A FRIEND OF MINE GET ONE AND I TRY HER , REALLY COMFORTABLE.
    IF I REMEMBER WELL, IT'S A KIND OF DARK GREY BLUE.
    SOME TIMES I SEE SOME OF THOSE WHEN I SEARCH ON EBAY FRANCE.
    WHEN I'LL SEE ONE, I'LL POST ON THE EBAY SECTION.
    IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IT CAN HELP.

    Yes, they're a dark blue. If you go to http://www.ebay.fr and go through 'collections', then ,'militaria', then type either 'veste' or 'blouson' they come up. They are a very comfortable and quite non-military looking jacket.

    UPDATE: Here's a link to one. It's a small or medium I think. http://cgi.ebay.fr/BLOUSON-CUIR-PILOTE- ... 286.c0.m14

    Unfortunately a lot of french stuff seems to come up as not permissable in your country. Dunno why .................

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, they do look interesting. It'd be nice to try one on and see how it feels/fits/looks. They may not be permissible here because of the difficulties of shipping/payments across an ocean.

    THESE JACKETS WERE ALSO USED BY THE BELGIAN AIR FORCE PILOTS IN THE 80'S AND BY THE "ESI"(kind of higher level swat,some kind of belgian GIGN)SOME HELICOPTER PILOTS STILL WEAR THIS JACKET IN DARK BROWN,BUT FOR MOST OF THEM THE CWU45P IS OFFICIAL FOR ALL FLIGHT CREWS

    Unfortunately this member has replaced all the photos in his Photobucket site with other pictures. This is one of the drawbacks of a forum that doesn't host its own photos.

    Here is the link to pilgrim632000's photobucket site.
