First designed in 1934 the B-3 bomber became the military-issued cold-weather flight jacket.
Aviators who manned the B-17's and B-24's in the skies over Europe in WWII came to rely on their B-3 jackets as they often flew for 8-9 hours in unpressurized cabins, where air temperatures could drop to more than 60 degrees below zero. The bomber was vital to the crews comfort as the crimp of the sheep's wool created insulating air spaces, naturally retaining heat and absorbing excess moisture generated by the body. It remains one of the warmest and most insulating bomber jackets ever made. Protection against sub-freezing weather conditions.Own an Alpha Industries B-3 Flight Jacket at a great price!
