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.

its pretty puffy and big. I have the maroon one in a medium and most likely gonna try to resell and get a small

>>10854231
rothco is cheaper and apparently very similar in quality to AI
>>
>>10854252
the reviews are so confusing. some say they run big, buy two sizes smaller. others say they're small, buy a size larger.
>>
>>10854252
I don't know about Rothco's bombers but their other jackets like N-2B are extremely puffy compared to AI

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.

I'm buying it because I like it senpai. I know they're trendy right now, but they've always been a good option.

i have a bomber from topman that was around $100. it fits well and seems fairly well-made. you should check them out.
>>
>>10854231
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.
>>
>>10857048
still can't tell lol.

is it browish / green depending on the lighting?
>>
>>10855205
how expensive would it be to get something like that professionally altered anyway

sleeves shortened and whatnot
>>
>>10857337
A coat? Expensive enough that it doesn't make sense doing it, might as well save that money and put it towards something that actually fits

don't know that I want dickies tho
>>
>>10857960
well I'm fucking small so most outerwear doesn't fit me in the smallest size because XS is actually for medium men
>>
>>10854252
In my experience these military jackets are typically oversized. So you buy a size smaller, especially with things like the M65 jacket.

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
