B-3 Authentic Sheepskin Jacket
Long missions and cold temperatures made the life of crewmen uncomfortable until the introduction of the Sheepskin B-3 leather jacket. With its warmth and wicking excess moisture capabilities the B-3 leather 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 the men's B-3 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. Order this real sheepskin jacket today!

How do I clean my sheepskin jacket?
We really don’t recommend doing anything to sheepskin jackets unless you get it very wet in which case you may need to use some natural product to rehydrate it after it dries. Most products will just accelerate the color coming off which will happen naturally as you wear it so you want to be careful. If you dirty the inside make sudsy water with woolite and clean the wool lightly. Damp cloth to remove soap and let it dry. You can then use a brush to brush it out.
