In 2020, the US Navy officially commissions the Surface Warfare Officer jacket, assigned to all Naval officers in training at the SWOS (Surface Warfare Officers' School) based in Newport, Rhode Island. The Legendary Newport Navy SWO jacket is designed in black 3.0 oz. (1.2mm) cowhide leather for daily use and abuse. Unlike the issue jackets, our Exclusive Legendary design offers civilian-friendly separate welted side entry pockets for additional cargo, and is available in Small-Medium-Large-XLarge sizes for civilian use. Very similar to the US Navy G-1 Flight Jacket, but with full leather collar instead of fur. All the other features of a G-1 are also included, such as bi-swing action back, underarm gussets for easier movement and wool knit cuffs & waistband. Hand cut and sewn in USA at the official contracted factory for the new SWO jacket.
