Cockpit USA B-3 Authentic Sheepskin Bomber Jacket Black
Brought into service around 1934 and a firm favorite among bomber crews during WWII, the sturdy B-3 bomber jacket was originally designed for both open cockpit and high altitude flying in the 1930s. Crafted from thick supple shearling skins with a nappa leather finished exterior developed by Jeff Clyman in the late 1970’s and based on the originals issued in WWII, the Original Cockpit Bomber B-3 features leather welted seams, a heavy duty frontal zipper over a wind flap, authentic custom made metal buckles built for hard wear. In 1978 Cockpit USA added side entry hand warmer pockets updating the jacket to contemporary standards.
Long missions and cold temperatures made the life of crewmen uncomfortable until the introduction of the Sheepskin B-3 leather jacket. With its warmth and wicking excess moisture capabilities the B-3 leather 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 the men's B-3 jacket. Please note that the shearling is tanned to “antique” as you wear it, giving “highs and lows” in the color so it looks as if you had this jacket since WWII. This will not affect the durability of this product. Order this real sheepskin jacket today!
