Product Details
Dreamed up in 1949, the MA-1 was the first bomber designed for pilots to wear year-round. Taking a page from the air force, we crafted this jacket from weighty coated satin with all kinds of authentic details (ribbed trim, zip pocket). It's a perfect this-season-to-that-season topper and small-batch style that will go, well, at the speed of sound.

Bomber Jacket

Bomber Jacket is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAUTIFUL BOMBER!!!!! LOVE this jacket! I normally wear a Medium, but reviews said it ran small and since Medium was sold out I got the large and am glad I did. It fits great and will be super in cooler weather. Great fabric and style. RECOMMEND TO ANYONE wanting this type jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!!! Beautiful jacket, has great features to it like the ribbing at the hem and the sleeves, the length is perfect, I also didn't find that the sleeves were too short, as the other reviewers stated, the quality is also very good. Nice transition piece. Will last a long time. Thanks Madewell this jacket is made well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality bomber! I've been wanting a bomber for so long and this one checked all the boxes for me! The quality of this jacket is so good and does not feel cheap whatsoever. The color is a perfect army green color that's not too dark or too bright. Not flashy at all. It has a nice satin finish. I actually got my true size in this. I am about 5'2", normally an XS, and I think it fits great. I love how this jacket has pockets as well. This will definitely be a staple piece in my wardrobe!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the jacket...almost 5 stars! I have been stalking this jacket for months! When I finally purchased it I had a little difficulty determining which size to get based on the other reviews. I got the size medium (for reference I'm 5'6 and 120 lbs). The only issue for me is that the sleeves are just a bit short. I'm sure the size small would have worked as well but, I was concerned about it looking too cropped. For me, based on my height the overall length of the jacket works but I would call it slightly cropped. The backside of the jacket kinda irritates me because it's a little bit puffy. The jacket is also much darker than shown in the photos. Other than that, I love it! It appears to be great quality and the lining is super soft and warm for those chilly days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs a bit small, but didn't size up. I usually wear a medium or small in Madewell depending on the style. I tried this in a medium and a large. They both fit, but I went with the medium. The large looked like a boyfriend jacket on me and the medium seemed like a "shrunken" style. I would have wished for something just inbetween, but as was, the large seemed too big, and had a lot of bulk around the middle, so I would say, get your normal size if you want something a little sleeker, and size up if you want a boyfriend kind of fit. Both work, and bombers are styled both ways too currently. I just liked it with less bulk, fits like on the model. I'm 5'1" and 135lbs average build.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket! Just got this jacket today . I ordered a small . I usually wear XS in Madewell jackets . This jacket hits top of hips like a military flight jacket . I would not call it cropped . Sleeves do run shorter if you have long arms size up . Very well made in quality .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect I was so excited when I saw this bomber online! I just wasn't in love with it when I received it. What I liked: I loved the color, fabric, ribbed trim, the warmth of the jacket was a welcomed surprise, and the pockets, including the small zip pocket detail on the arm, were all perfect! I also love that Madewell stuck to a modern yet classic take. The weighted coated satin makes this bomber chic and modern but very much a classic you could wear for years! But...I think what makes it not quite right are just a few minor details - the combination of the ruche sleeves, short length and puffiness (it slightly billows in the back and makes me feel a little like a marshmallow) all add up to a bomber that was almost perfect. If they got rid of the ruche sleeves and slightly reduced the billowing in the back, it would be amazing! I may purchase it back because the good notes were great! Though I'd love to see it back in the fall with some minor improvements. Fingers crossed!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from love the concept, but missed the mark This jacket looks good and seemed well made, but the zipper (which is too heavy & destructive to nice nails) got stuck and I wasn't able to move it again. I'm always a M in Madewell; this jacket runs small, sleeves are short & waist is too snug, but the chest & shoulders fit fine. The quilted lining adds some warmth, but overall this was a miss for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved it, but..... I wish Madewell had published a jacket length measurement in the description as this jacket is very short. I'm a Large or XL in Madewell and bought the XL- everything fit fine (and I often have issues zipping up jackets over the bust area!) but the cropped style was too short for me! I tried it zipped up and open, but as much as I loved it, I had to return. Too bad as the fabric and quality are great! If you're into cropped jackets, I'd recommend you give it a go!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Crop I would definitely consider this bomber cropped. A lot of reviewers mentioned that it's not, but I usually wear a size M at Madewell and purchased this jacket in a L and it only comes down to my upper hip. Feeling unsure about my purchase..feel like I would've liked it a lot more if I sized up to an XL. Also color and texture differ a tad from what you see on the model.
