Leather Jackets - Forever Cool!


If you haven’t had the experience of wearing a leather jacket that made you feel very cool, it’s time to treat yourself. Redtail Air Adventures Store right on Main Street has an exciting line of stylish, high quality leather jackets just for you.

Women’s styles include beautifully tailored blazers, fitted contemporary jackets and ribbed puff leather vests. These sumptuous lamb jackets and vests feature special attention to stitching detail, and are offered in black, brown, nude, and rich red. Our men’s jackets come in a variety of styles in lamb and cow skin. Some feature zip out knit front chest protectors and collars, while others have detachable sherpa collars. The cotton linings of our authentic bomber jackets feature schematics of aircraft. We also carry vintage bomber jackets with genuine WWII insignias and patches.

A good quality leather jacket will become a dear friend as it is built to last and to age beautifully with you. Modernize your wardrobe! Wear one with jeans for casual events, or add it to the ensemble you wear to the most sophisticated event on your calendar. Appropriate for all ages, these jackets have a “cool factor” which has not decreased over the last 100 years.

Leather jackets have a long and complicated history, stretching from the first flight jackets of the early 1900’s through those worn by the stars of the silver screen and rock bands. During WWI, brown leather flight jackets were worn by the early military aviators. The first non-military style arrived in 1928: a motorcycle jacket designed for Harley Davidson. The bomber jacket, heavily insulated and warm, appeared during World War II. Women, including aviator Amelia Earhart, began appearing with their own leather jackets in the 1930’s. Between then and now, we’ve seen leather jackets everywhere from “The Wild One” to “Top Gun,” on motorcyclists as well as off-duty super models. Sometimes an emblem of heroism, sometimes of rebellion, both beautiful and functional, leather jackets are always cool! 

Come on in and see Redtail’s fine leather jackets. Our selection will make your choice easy! 23 N. Main Street, 435-686-2582. Open daily 9-8.
