The center piece of the "Survival School" story, the "Bailout" MA-1 is a everything we've come to expect from Mister Freedom: thoroughly authentic and wholly unique. Made with long time collaborator Buzz Rickson, it's produced like a historical reproduction, but with its own new story to tell. Famously, fifth generation MA-1's featured an high visibility orange lining designed to allow pilots to attract the attention of rescuers in the event of shoot down while still evading capture with the help of its green outer shell.

The Mister Freedom "Bailout" reverses MA-1's layers, making the orange side the main side, while the sage green stick to the inside. Of course, just like the original, its completely reversible. The main difference is with the "Bailout," the orange side features the two hand warmer pocket, and sleeve pocket while the green side has the inside pockets.

While a horse of a different color, the "Bailout" was still made to the rigorous standards of Buzz Rickson's authentic reproductions, with vintage Mil-Specs heavy 2×2 grade nylon twill on both A (orange) and B (green) sides. The jacket is lined with period correct Wool/Cotton blend (60/40) fiber interlining like those of the 1960s.

The slide fasteners are vintage-style aluminum model of Coats & Clark Crown zippers. Crown was a was a division of Coats & Clark, now Buzz Rickson owns the trademark and has worked faithfully reproduce the Crown zippers.
