Shearling/Nappa B3 Bomber | Black
Cockpit USA. Made in USA.
Long missions and cold temperatures made the life of crewmen uncomfortable until the introduction of the Sheepskin B-3. With its warmth and wicking excess moisture capabilities the B-3 jacket became an essential staple for the crews of B-17 bombers. Cockpit USA’s addition of warm side entry pockets in 1978 adds to the practicality of this jacket.
Please note that the shearling is tanned to “antique” as you wear it, giving “highs and lows” in the colour so it looks as if you had this jacket since WWII. This will not affect the durability of this product.
Sheepskin varies from production to production but you'll always receive the same craftsmanship and warmth from Cockpit USA.
Note for Australian customers that this jacket is one size larger that what you would normally buy and as it is a bulky piece is it advised going down a size. Eg. if you normally buy a size 40" chest (size M) in jackets, then you could opt for the size 38" in this B3 Bomber.
