    Hello everybody,

    has anyone of you bought from Noble House Germany recently?

    They seem to have some interesting Luftwaffe flight jackets. I especially like Kanaljacke Winter Version, the blue cloth summer version and the Nachtjäger. Would be a nice addition to my US jackets.

    I have read one review over at FL that was not very promising but on the other hand that review is a few years old.

    Any thoughts or experiences with their jackets?

    Cheers

    Would be good to see them up close and personal as for the prices they look pretty good. Personally I like the Me262 and the Marseille jackets which they claim are based on originals, the latter of course probably only from pics. Interesting how they 'suggest' each is different due to what plane the pilot flew too!

    Yes, maybe I should take a day off from work and Go there.

    My favorite is the Uhu.

    OK for the price, OK if you want to disguise and use a gas mask .
    Far away from an original not even an immitation...a lot of room for improvement.
    See photos...
    Plus the repro Uhu smelled like a Soviet Chemical plant....
    I returned it.

    Thanks for the info - sorry to hear that. From the pictures on the website the jackets look ok. But: then it will save me some money for some other jackets. :)

    I my "beginnings" getting more and more interested in flight jackets I bought some stuff from Alexander (owner of NH) - his shop is a 1 hour irde from my home so I got to his shop to pick some stuff

    in general I wouldn`t rate his jackets as "repros" - maybe better call them "immitations" with a lot of details simply wrong or maybe would need some more care in getting even in the direction of being a comparable "reproduction" like other makers (ELC, AERO, ...)

    pricewise they are a interesting alternative to the already mentioned brands but: you get what you pay for - or: the difference in pricing is sometimes obvious on the jackets

    I own a "Hartmann Jacket" / "ME109" jacket in black / "BARKHORN" / A2 / IRVIN / B6 / UBOOT Coat

    My A2 as well as the B6 have been out of production trials which I got for a pretty cool price

    nothing better than seeing things in person so if you can pay them a visit, go for it. At the very least, should be fun!!!!

    Yep!

    Highly recommended!

    Alex the owner is a nice guy and always open for discounts if you visit him in his shop.

    Take your time to pick YOUR size coz sizing on his jackets is sometimes confusing.

    Good luck
