Anyone bite the bullet and buy a Pop's Leather (Korea) A-2. They have a thinsulate lining option and I'm wondering how much warmth it provides. Plus the general fit and finish of the jacket. Thanks in advance!

Pop's Leather is not in Korea. They're in Adana, Turkey which is next to Incirlik AB.
And per their website they're currently closed because of the pandemic.

But, I do have an A2 jacket from them and have found that with the thinsulate liner it would keep me warm in temperatures down to about 20 degrees F no problem.

I knew that, but I misspoke.  Good to know that it makes it a warmer jacket. I have an unlined A-2 and it's barely a fall jacket.

Second that. I've had one about 4 years now. I bit the bullet and it wasn't cheap but definitely high quality. I carefully took multiple measurements on the custom form and it fits great. Got all the features I wanted. I'm planning on wearing this one around for many years.

They're currently closed due to the pandemic.
There also may be internet connection problems due to the Government of Turkey intermittently shutting down the internet too.
