Inspired by General Dwight D. Eisenhower's favorite WWII jacket, Dickies' Insulated Eisenhower Jacket is known for its classic good looks, rugged durability and lightweight warmth. The exterior pockets, and the hidden interior pocket, create plenty of space to store your accessories. Thanks to the generous fit across the shoulders and chest, as well as the light feel of the jacket, it has become a customer favorite with performance, comfort and value guaranteed.
am a big fan of the 40s-50s leather motorcycle jackets. and despite being called an Ike jacket, this has pretty much the cut, look, fit and design of those classic jackets. so about 10 years ago i got this very jacket for a little bit less than the incredibly great price they still are. let me say, the first thing i noticed was how warm it was despite not expecting much from the very non-bulky insulation. i'm in L.A. but i ended up wearing it on nights that were actually chilly. the thing is comfortable, light and every bit as great looking as i'd hoped when i got it. i've got so many motorcycle, leather and military jackets i can't find a place for them all. but if i needed one inexpensive lightweight non-leather jacket for work to going out with jeans in weather from 60 to 72 degrees, this would be it. a great 3-season jacket in places like L.A.
I just bought the new red Eisenhower jacket, which I felt looks like James Dean's. Several people at work complimented me on it and asked where I got it since they'd never seen that color before. Gonna buy the light blue one next.
My 4th insulated Eisenhower jacked in 15 years. Always stylish, quality built. After this jacket gets old, it turns into my “dirty work” jacket. Will be buying these jackets for the duration of my life
