The Half Belt is the classic zippered civilian jacket. From the start of the 30's, when the fist zippered leather jackets were made, to end of the 50's when supplies of good horsehide became scarce, half belted horsehide jackets were produced by countless local producers across North America.
The fact so many of these jackets still exist today, in eminently wearable condition, is a tribute to their manufacturer and the fact that they were made using US Chrome Tanned Front Quarter Horsehide.
Aero continue this great tradition by choosing the finest US Horsehide and equalling, even excelling the manufacturing standards of the 30's and 40's. We have taken the best elements from the countless jackets that have passed through our hands over the years.
The Aero Half Belt features a pleated back with false half belt and side adjusting straps. A brass central zipper and a zippered breast pocket, with two slash hand warmer pocket. (Inside pockets available as an optional extra). It has typical American storm cuffs provide extra protection against the elements.
