Original Items: Only One Set Available. During World War Two the B-3 was a jacket designed specifically for the high-altitude needs of bombers. This was a bulky sheepskin jacket with a heavy-duty sheep-fur lining meant to keep men warm 25,000 feet in the air. For extra protection, the wide sheepskin collar could be closed with two leather straps. Far bulkier than typical flight jackets, the B-3 does not have a knit waistband and trim fit that made the other jackets famous. Rather its warmth and durability made it a hit, even with Army General George S. Patton. The B3 was heavy-duty jacket designed for the sub-freezing temperatures of high-altitude flying. Today multiple reproduction are produced and many cost well over $1000 because the B-3 is a great, time-tested option.
This size 44R WW2 manufactured B-3 Shearling bomber jacket is in good condition with original Brass zipper. There is a tear at the back of the collar and has original label tag. What is most impressive is the custom made leather Italian 760th Tank Battalion patch.
Also included is an IKE jacket and a named Class A Service Coat.
