* Required Fields

The B-6 short sheared sheepskin flight jacket was first introduced in 1939 and used extensively in the Army Air Force training command when pilots flew open cockpit training planes but needed a lightweight jacket for ease of movement. Light enough to wear with a sweater and other layering pieces; it is an incredibly contemporary piece of clothing designed by artisans years ago but an easy piece for the field or street.

  1. Living HIstory Review by Bryce

    I have purchased a few different jackets from Cockpit over the years. Their attention to detail is above and beyond most. The quality of materials and stitching is just amazing.
    Often times I have found bomber jackets, especially shearlings to be a bit bulky. This jacket is trim in a good way. The leather is perfect and soft. It fits and moves nicely when wearing.
    You can tell the design team paid careful attention with holding true to the original B-6. The insignia on the left shoulder is faint enough to not draw too much attention, but just enough to capture the history just right.
    This jacket looks great with dress clothes and when just throwing on some jeans and a tee. It will keep you worm on those cold windy days.
    I am 5 ft 11 inches and about 175 lbs and the 42 fits great. The good kind of snug!
    If you want to wear thicker garments like sweaters I would go a size up. The staff at Cockpit are very helpful in determining size and are good at getting back to your questions. (Posted on 3/13/2017)

  2. Amazingly Comfortable Review by David

    I have been in the Navy for 24 years, 12 years active duty and 12 reserves. I had a Navy G-1 issued to me probably 15 years ago, and I never thought another flight jacket could replace it. I read a couple of reviews about the products on Cockpit USA, and decided to give it a try. I wanted flight jacket I could wear with both my uniform and civilian clothes. I talked to someone at Cockpit USA after calling the number on the website; I was worried about the sleeves being too long. I am a 42 short. I don’t know the name of the guy I spoke to, but he was helpful and straight up with me, which I appreciate. He sold me on the B-6 after answering all my questions. I got the B-6 quickly, and I hate to say it, but I like it more than my Navy issued G-1. It is so comfortable, I can’t wait for cold weather just to wear it. Now… I am going to put my Navy patches over the Air Force decals...maybe below to honor my grand dad, but I got an old school name tape I am having put on soon. I’ll send you guys pics if you care to see when complete, and I attempt to wear on base in uniform! Thank you so much for the quick and easy delivery. Being an E-6 your jackets are a little pricey for me, but well worth saving up for. I know I will again make a purchase from you guys. LOVE your site, and hope to one day come into the store. THANKS!!!
