Top Guns: The Best Men’s Bomber Jackets to Buy Right Now

The new year is the perfect time to upgrade and refresh your outerwear rotation, especially with a silhouette as classic and time-tested as the bomber jacket.

Originally made for the military before working its way into civilian life (thanks in large part to the first brand on this list, Alpha Industries), the bomber jacket is prized for its functionality and durability.

We think the best men’s bomber jackets of today provide those same qualities in spades, yet with an added dash of modern style and winter-ready fabrication. There’s something for every style and price point on our list. See for yourself, below.
