What you see here is the real-life self-drying jacket as depicted in the sci-fi flick Back to the Future II. In fact, this isn’t the first.

Classic Flight Jacket Reimagined By COLDSMOKE And The Result Is Awesome

Flight jacket used to be a military pilot thing until (probably) Tom Cruise made it a fashion icon in the movie Top Gun.

Unlike the classic, the COLDSMOKE MA-1 Flight Jacket is a lot less ‘puffy’ and a tad body fitting – thanks to the emphasis on fit and overall tailoring which sees the outerwear receiving a slimmer cut, replacing the bulky arm pocket with a streamlined water repellent zippered opening suitable for media devices and ditching the traditional elastic bottom for tailored hem that offers the jacket a shirt-like feel.
