The Charles River Boston Flight Jacket is a good lightweight nylon jacket, with emphasis on the "lightweight"
Posted by Wilson
The FJ Flight Jacket is a good lightweight nylon jacket, with emphasis on the "lightweight." It weighs 1 lb 2 oz, which is about 2 oz more than my Lands End 100% cotton dress shirt. So don't expect it to keep you very warm when the temperature is cold. But it could be helpful when the weather is just a little cool. There are two pockets for your hands on the outside. And like a traditional flight jacket there is a ".45" pocket inside the jacket. It will hold a medium sized 9 mm or something smaller if you are carrying. The fit was very good. (I'm about 6 ft tall and 170 lbs and the medium fit fine.) The jacket measures 25 inches across the chest. If you want to have a logo placed on the jacket, be advised that there the logo be embroidered and not stenciled.
A nice mild-weather jacket.

This is a pretty nice light duty jacket. No real decoration on it, just the two slash style pockets with a wide hem. I don't know if it's a real "flight" jacket style, but I think it's nice looking.The two front pockets are functional. I don't find them overly generous but they're adequate. The inside pocket is quite large.My husband says he likes the collar tapering down like that. Says it's comfortable. We got a medium and it fits him well. It's fully lined he says it blocks the wind very well, it's just not particularly warm so more suited to milder weather.
Perfect fit! This is my first "Boston Flight" jacket

Perfect fit! This is my first bomber jacket. I love this jacket as a fashion statement. It works well as a windbreaker if you pair it with a heavy flannel and/or sweater. If you're looking for something to spruce up your wardrobe, this is quite the fashion piece. It well suited for any season, even cooler summer days since it doesn't retain very much warmth, so you won't feel stuffy. It looks quite nice when worn unzippered.I personally love it. For me, it's a fashion statement and this jacket foots the bill. For warmth, I have other heavier jackets that will get the job done.5 stars.
Fits as expected and looks great

I received the Medium, green jacket. It is a lightweight jacket. It fits comfortably and is a nice style. It looks well-made and sturdy. It is 100% nylon inside and out. It's wind resistant. There is a pocket inside the lining along the left side of the chest. The pockets on the outside are closed only with a snap, so they are not highly secure. The zipper is fully metal and runs smoothly.

Perfect Spring jacket that looks sharp and fits very well...

To me this type of jacket is essential for late winter and spring. Truly there isn't anything better to grab on quick trips out of the house when it's windy or a bit brisk. This FJ jacket really checks all the marks when it comes to function, style, fit and comfort. It is completely nylon which in my opinion is ideal to have on during light spring showers. I've weathered this in the rain twice and it is very much water resistant. This won't keep you super warm when temps are in the 30s (F) but for anything in the mid 40s (F) and above range it is ideal.The fit is excellent and quite flattering considering it is a jacket. When you order this, order your exact size. Don't try and assume that it varies, it truly is what it says it is when it comes to size. Even the sleeve length is exactly where it needs to be. One of the best fitting jackets I've owned as you can really wear it and it doesn't wear you like other lighter jackets. It is also quite flattering to your body.It looks exactly as it does in the photo. It offers a sleek and understated look, a traditional piece that allows you to step up other areas of your look. It's worth noting that this is a traditional black and not one of the newer 'off blacks' or 'toned down black'. It really will go with any casual look.Some bonus areas with this include the pockets which have a single button that keeps your items securely inside. Also, the zipper works and won't get stuck on fabric as there is plenty of space for zipping. The jacket washes really well and comes out unfaded and without any change.This is a great jacket.
Looks very cool and is very comfortable

Great looking and comfortable. It's Green and It's Main assets are: it looks very very cool and it's very comfortable. It has a thin nylon liner and a somewhat heavier nylon outer shell. It's perfect for Florida winter weather.
A Flight Jacket which makes you want to take off into the wild blue yonder!

A really nice fitting jacket. I especially liked the cuffs as they snug up and keep the cool breezes out. The only down side was the zipper until I got the hang of it and then it worked just fine. The fit around my body was perfect and the shoulders were just right. Nicely made and good quality for the price.
Perfect Spring Jacket!!!

Really nice jacket. Fits true to size. Fits really nice actually. If you prefer a more fitted look I'd suggest going down a size. About the only knock I have on this jacket, is that I wished it had a zipper on the chest. Other than that this is the perfect jacket!
Very nice fitting, stylish jacket that matches the quality of higher-priced labels

I am very surprised at how nice this jacket is. Ironically, I got it within days of my wife bringing home a female version she'd paid 2x as much for, and the jackets were the exact same quality/design (except for the reverse zipper). The material is perfect for a rainy spring/fall day. It looks very stylish, and the elastic and seams are very well done. The pockets are exactly what you'd want in a light jacket like this.Again, great quality, nice jacket, and looks just like the pic...if the price is right for you, you'll like it alot!
