I'm looking for a lightweight bomber.
I like the ones from alpha industries but the sizing is confusing, and the particular one I was looking at didn't have any reviews. any recommendations on good bombers?
I'd like to spend less than the alpha industries ones, ($115-145) but recc what you can / know to be good please.
They're fucking huge. I'm a fat fuck and a medium is gigantic even for me, two sizes smaller sounds right. They look like complete shit without alteration, but what I did to make it look better is take out all of the padding through a small cut on the inside of the sleeve.
Huge improvement, if you don't mind it being not warm. They're cheap enough that it's a fun project even if you hate it.
thanks pham, have you bought one in khaki by any chance? it doesn't really look khaki to me.
Literally can get this(dickies team jacket),same as a bomber, will be warm and not at all puffy. With dickies order a size or two up they tend to be slimmer fitting. They sell it both lined and unlined and costs like $50. Ive always worn dickies for work and love it.
I have this, the color is darker than the regular sage green on issue MA-1s, OG-107 yank uniforms, or the usual ODs used in surplus garment.
This is not that light tho, it's heavy (for your heart)
im 6'1 180 lbs and have ops bomber in a large. its completely fine, not too puffy and if i went any smaller it would be super short and unwearable. not sure what everyone is talking about itt
