The Cockpit B-3 Sheepskin Bomber Jacket will keep you comfortable in the most extreme weather. Brought into service by the Army Air Force in 1934, this men’s B-3 shearling-lined bomber jacket was originally designed to keep bomber pilots warm in unpressurized cabins at altitudes over 30,000 feet where temperatures were well below freezing. Made with 100% real sheepskin leather with genuine shearling lining, you’ll be able to stay warm all winter long. Featuring adjustable buckles on the standing collar and waist sides, this men’s sheepskin aviator jacket will help you retain heat. Additionally, it is designed with a heavy-duty front zipper over a wind flap and two side entry welt pockets, providing even more protection from the elements. Available in Regular and Tall (Long) lengths, you’ll be able to find an option that best matches your climate needs.
The sheepskin (shearling) pelts are hand selected for uniformity, then sewn together twice - once by a loop stitch, then covered with a leather "tape" and sewn again, providing a windowpane effect. The addition of these reinforced tape seams helps prevent rain or wind from seeping into the American-made jacket.
Constructed with a breathable, moisture-wicking leather, the Cockpit B-3 leather bomber jacket can be worn in a wide range of climates. The sheepskin exterior is also lightweight, ensuring you remain comfortable for extended periods without having to worry about the jacket feeling heavy or overbearing. As the men's sheepskin jacket is worn, the authentic leather panels will distress to a suede finish, which will provide that weathered, battle worn look over time.
