    Nice looking jacket... :) VERY good for the new price I saw posted. How long will it be on sale?

    Keep Portland weird! :p (I lived in Sellwood, close to Oaks Park for around a year once upon a time)

    Very nice, I couldn't help noticing the different buttonhole type and pocket flap construction in comparison to your AN-J-3 and M422a.
    I'm assuming your A-1 variants are made elsewhere?

    Thanks Ken! Yes that is correct. Steve Sellers makes all the USN M-422's and ANJ jackets. The A-1, 37J1 and other models are not made by Steve.

    Sweet! I love it here. Skiing in the winter less than 1 hr away. Dual Sport Moto riding in the dirt all over the mountains in the summer. Plus the beach is less than 2 hrs away.

    The price listed on the website is the price, not the sale price. It won't be changing unless material costs increase.

    Regards,
    Jay

    Jacket looks great, Jay! I really like the mix of bits and the hide is perfect. It looks really comfortable off the bat!
    Well done, sir!

    Thanks! Yes it is comfortable and the pattern seems to distribute the weight well. This hide is 1.8mm thick but it sure doesn't feel like it when worn.

    Regards,
    Jay

    That's a very good price too if it's Made in USA
