B-3 & Sheepskin Jackets
The B-3 shearling bomber jacket was first issued to the United States Army Air Corps in 1931 and continued into WWII as an invention of necessity. The B-17 and B-24 bombers that were flown over Europe were not climate-controlled, so pilots and aircrew were exposed to extreme cold temperatures as they climbed to high altitudes. The heavy B-3 sheepskin bomber jacket with fleece interior provided much-needed relief and eventually became a fashionable choice as well as functional and organic.
At Cockpit USA, we make sure to maintain the same level of quality and craftsmanship that went into these jackets during WWII. We are proud to supply both the Air Force and civilians with genuine, dependable iconic B-3 sheepskin bomber jackets with the practical modifications made in the late 1970’s.
