    I've never seen the triangular type panels on a genuine flying jacket (I'm pretty certain this isn't Irvin made) and I don't like the zinc zip and collar buckle either. Not for me, there's better out there.

    ISWright recently had a German Helmet on ebay which I was interested in to start with, well at least until I got more pics. Only ever got one question answered from them and they never replied after that, or sent more pics. Never put a bid on because things didnt add up but someone put $700+ on it......

    About the jacket, well I havent seen anything like that either, seems very stylized or trendy to me
