Item #: Z2102M Availability: In stock
Previously provided with outerwear which kept very little body heat, the sheepskin B-3 bomber jackets were introduced in WWII to ensure that crewman were kept warm while flying at high altitudes in unpressurized cabins. Cockpit USA has perfected the long lost leather finish once used and added side entry hand warmer pockets updating this jacket to contemporary standards. 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. This jacket is also available in Long sizes. Sheepskin varies from production to production but you'll always receive the same quality and warmth from Cockpit USA Not sure which size to get?

B-3 Love Review by James
Quality

When my father was in England during WWII, he was in the 8th AF and flew in B-24s. One of the photos I have of him is in his B-3. It has been a dream of my life to own a jacket like that. This year I decided that it was time to fill that dream. I didn't want an overseas-made knock-off of the B-3, this had to be the real thing. I looked for a long time at many different sources. I thought the offering from Cockpit USA looked the best. However, I had some questions about the product and am not located anywhere near their showroom . This means that there was no chance to look at it, feel it, or try it on. so, I would have to trust the folks at Cockpit USA to be my eyes and hands. I traded several e-mails with Jacky Clyman. Responses came quickly and were right to the point. The final question involved the look of the jacket because I had seen a photo that raised a question about the color. Jacky went to the showroom floor, pulled a jacket in my size, photographed it, and sent the photo to me. That was what I needed and sent in my order. The order was placed on the Friday before the Labor Day weekend. The jacket was delivered to me on the following Thursday. It is beautiful and everything I hoped it would be. (Posted on 9/25/2017)
Words can barely describe!!! Review by Jack

I went and picked up the package from the port office today and as soon as I pulled the jacket out I was blown away. When I put it on the sleeves we're snug on my arms, the torso perfect around me. The fit was dead-on! The staff were so accommodating when dealing with my measurements. I usually get jackets in size 36 as I like a nice, fitting look. But I'm glad the 38 was suggested to me! It fits absolutely perfectly. And the look! Oh, the look. It looks absolutely perfect. The quality is such a compliment to the designers/crafters eye for detail. Worth the wait, and worth every penny!

Excellent Review by John

I really love the B-3 Bomber Jacket. The quality is excellent. Fits well. Details are right on to expectation - period correct. The lambs skin and wool are the highest grade. Really nice. Its everything I was hoping it would be. Now I need some really cold weather!
Thank you, John L. (Posted on 3/27/2017)
Great winter jacket Review by Fredrik

I like the bomber style jacket and prefer high quality products. It is well made, but it's not perfectly symmetrical in all the details. It is a warm, comfortable jacket and it is (literally) as walking around in a sheepskin.

I measure 38" around the chest, but as I have an athletic build with a 30" wais and didn't want it too bulky I ordered the 36" size. That fit me quite well and I still have room for a sweather underneath. (Posted on 12/15/2016)
My dream jacket! Review by Tommy
Quality

This is something I was chasing for a very, very long time, even while living in Florida for years. I never quite pulled the trigger on a real shearling, though, obviously because the Florida heat made such a purchase questionable at best. But believe it or not, an even bigger reason is that I am the fussiest person on the planet when it comes to how my clothes fit. I didn't just want a shearling, I wanted a shearling that looked like it was made especially for me.

Fortunately, I left our nation's swamp and moved up to more civilized climates. But now I needed a real winter coat. Ah, shearling time! But it still had to fit!

Enter Cockpit USA, and their unbelievably patient and accommodating staff. I can't thank them enough for allowing me to come by the showroom and try on every single shearling they sell, in several different sizes. Finding the right fit wasn't an issue, though...having to choose which one of the many amazing jackets was! After agonizing over the choice between an RAF and the Genuine B-3, I finally went with the B-3. No better place to start than with the classic, right?

Now, how does it hold up? Incredibly. You will not be cold in one of these. Rain doesn't seem to trouble it. knock it around, scrape it against stuff accidentally, and it just ends up looking even cooler.

This is a jacket with stories to tell, and I want to hear them all.

Sizing: I like my clothes to fit me stylishly. I cannot stand loose fitting jackets. I am 5'11", about 175 to 180lbs, and like a snug fit. For me, size 34 was absolutely perfect. Tight enough to wear it with just a t-shirt underneath, or a sweater if it is really brutal outside and I want to get real snuggly and insulated. If you prefer a looser fit and like to layer, and you are about my size, a 36 would probably do it for you. (Posted on 2/8/2016)
Look forward to finally having a great looking winter jacket! Review by Phil

As someone who lives in NYC, winter months limit me to enormous coats the err on the side of function over form. I have yet to wear this in appropriately cold weather, but really looking forward to finally having the chance to have both!

This jacket is a military fit, so you'll likely have to size down by a lot. I'm a 40/42 with affordable European brands (e.g. Zara) but this jacket was a perfect fit at size 36! 38 for some of the other sheepskin jackets.

The finish on these will vary so use the images on the site as a solid reference, though they don't do the real thing justice. No pleather here!

This goes out to those who live in NYC or those who are traveling to NYC - but go to the store, and figure out your size. The good people behind Cockpit USA are extremely helpful and accommodating. Email/Call ahead with styles and size, and enjoy the showroom full of items for sale, and for show. (Posted on 9/29/2014)
