10 Bomber Jackets Under $50

10 Bomber Jackets Under $50

Last updated April 14, 2017

Fall is here, and that means it's time to start wearing one of the manliest pieces of garb available, the bomber jacket.

The bomber jacket was created when the U.S. Army started the Aviation Clothing Board in 1917, and started releasing clothing to be used for military men in World War I.

Because planes didn't have enclosed cockpits at the time, pilots needed a heavy duty jacket that could keep them warm at high altitudes for long periods of time. So they invented the traditional bomber jacket, which was made with leather, high collars and lined with fur.

The bomber jacket has evolved over the years, and have been in and out of pop culture with movie stars sporting them, creating immediate demand for these iconic jacket. They're a symbol of honor, adventure, and come on... they just look cool.

Here are five jackets we've found that look great and won't break the bank, all under $50 (and many under $30).
