    Product Details

    This jacket is part of our collaboration with Palladium boots. The limited-edition City Explorer MA-1 flight jacket has all the great features of our iconic MA-1 flight jacket but has a special look to complement the Pampa Hi Zip MA-1 and Baggy Zip MA-1 boots. The colorblocking brings in the sage, navy, black and maroon so that it complements any of the boot variations. The sage colorblocking on the back of the body and sleeves of the jacket symbolizes the silhouette of a plane which pays homage to the shared military aviation history that is inherent in both brands. Palladium’s rubber patch is featured on the sleeve and a co-branded ribbon is featured on Alpha’s signature utility/pencil pocket. The jacket is available at both the Alpha and Palladium websites and in the U.S. exclusively at Urban Outfitters retail locations.
    • This special MA-1 variation has knit collar, cuffs, and waistband.
    • It is water resistant to keep moisture out.
    • The flight jacket is 100% flight nylon with 100% polyester lining and fill.

    Product History

    Collaborating with French company Palladium made perfect sense for Alpha since, like us, their heritage is rooted in the military. Founded in 1920, Palladium was originally a company that manufactured tires for the aviation industry in Europe including planes that fought in World War II. They later transformed into a footwear company bringing their expertise in hard-wearing materials to the creation of boots, the first being the Pampa boot. The Pampa was so durable that it became the footwear of the French Foreign Legion. The Palladium x Alpha collection includes limited-edition versions of both Palladium’s Pampa Hi Zip and Baggy Zip boots, as well as, Alpha’s iconic MA-1 flight jacket.
