Finally, after years locked away in the basement, our beloved eggheads from the tech department have come up with the summer version of the good old MA-1. We don’t know exactly how they did it because they’re MIT grads and we’re just a bunch of guys from the marketing, but they pulled it off. If we had to guess, it’s because they threw out all the warm stuff inside the original MA-1 and replaced it with, well, nothing. Now, all that stands between you and the summer breeze is the MA-1 VF LW’s robust flight nylon and a super thin lining that matches the outer material, save for some incredibly stylish contrast stitching. The flight nylon shields your body from all kinds of weather (mostly from wind and rain, though) and the jacket’s polished and this super shiny zipper adds just that extra amount of shiny. Oh, and the jacket is slim fit, so no crazy layering, friends. Long story short: the MA-1 VF LW is a great option for spring and summer days.
