The Warmest Winter Coats Online!

When shopping for coats and jackets online, it can be difficult to determine which coats will be very heavy and warm and which jackets are light and more suitable for warmer weather. To help you pick the best coat or jacket for your needs, we have put together our 'Cosy Coat' Scale - to give you a better idea of the warmth of our coats, jackets, parkas and raincoats. All coats and jackets are marked out of five, with 1 being the lightest, summer or warm weather jackets and 5 being the heaviest, winter and cold weather coats and jackets.

Alpha Industries Flying Tigers MA-1 Vintage Fit Bomber Jacket in sage. This awesome Alpha Industries retro patch MA-1 Vintage Fit bomber jacket features iconic military insignia associated with the Flying Tigers Air Force Squadron and commemmorates their bravery and exploits during WWII.

The jacket features US embroidered shield badge to right sleeve, Wing and Star badge to lower left sleeve and Japanese Rising Sun embroidery to the right side of the chest with Flying Tigers tagline. The piece-de-resistance is the Flying Tigers nose art embroidery to the reverse. This back embroidery is accompanied by Air Force Squadron and Flying Tiger USAF signatures. The intricate back embroidery kind of reminds us of Sylvester Stallone's Tiger Bomber jacket in Rocky II.

This stylish Mod Revival badged blouson fit flight jacket comes in classic sage green. Featuring the iconic Retro orange lining. The original Alpha Industries MA1 Bomber Jacket was developed as a lightweight alternative to the leather flight jacket as the dawn of the jet engine aircraft placed new demands on pilots. Designed for better manoeuvrability at altitude and in more confined spaces, the MA1 Bomber Jacket has since also become a staple of Mod Revival Clothing. Great scooter wear with traditional Retro Bomber Jacket credentials. Re-worked form their own original design, this is the Alpha Industries Flying Tigers MA1 VF Bomber Jacket in a Retro slim fit style. Designed in the 1950s, still going strong today - The MA1 VF Bomber Jacket from Alpha Industries.

The Alpha Industries MA-1 VF is the winter version of the Alpha Industries MA-1 bomber jacket, padded and quilted for extra warmth. 

The Flying Tigers also known by their official name, First American Volunteer Group (AVG) championed some of the most daring battles of World War 2. The Walt Disney Company actually designed an insignia for the Flying Tigers. The design features a tiger with small wings emerging from the V for Victory sign (and is similar in style to the tiger on the back of this fab jacket).
