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 color 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.
This jacket is the LONG version.
We usually only suggest the LONG versions to customers who are 6’3” and taller.
