A great review from one of our Australian customers:

"(Avenger) G1 is very comfortable and well made, easy access pockets, comfortable woollen colour, not to heavy, Leather is not to hard, nice and soft, its like you’ve been wearing it for year’s like its already been broken into. If you haven’t worn one you don’t know what you’re missing. I wore it around my brothers place then I get a phone call from him the next day his mate has been looking for the G1 jacket for year’s so here comes more orders. I should open my own store over here in oz, they would sell like hot cakes. well done cockpit, great products.” - Garry 

MCM: The Montgolfier Brothers

Some of the first sky explorations took place as far back as the 1780s, though they weren’t with planes. The Montgolfier Brothers were the pioneers of the hot air balloon, who conducted the first untethered flights.

 

Joseph-Michel and Jacques- Étienne were born in France, the sons of a paper factory owner. The factory helped lead them to their discovery that heated air would cause a large lightweight paper or fabric bag to rise in the air.

Starting their discovery by raising just a balloon, they advanced a few months later on September 19, 1783 by sending a sheep, rooster, and duck into the air. The animal passengers stayed up in their balloon for 8 minutes landing 2 miles from the launch site. 

Then on November 21, 1783, the first untethered flight took place in a balloon that sailed over Paris for 5.5 miles in 25 minutes. Without the curiosity and heart of these early explorers, the sky would have taken another century to reach.
