Item #: Z2102BM Availability: In stock
Long missions and cold temperatures made the life of crewmen uncomfortable until the introduction of the Sheepskin B-3. With its warmth and wicking excess moisture capabilities the B-3 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 this 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. Sheepskin varies from production to production but you'll always receive the same craftmanship and warmth from Cockpit USA Not sure which size to get?

MY OPINION Review by MANUEL

As I said on FB, during 29 years I kept my first sheepskin jacket bought from avirex! I took it everywhere under any temperatures and conditions, always happy to wear it! It is still ok but older and tired.... I finally decided it was high time to get a brand new one. it's done! After 1 week of transit from US to France, I received it. It fits perfectly to me, (quality, standards, color, size) like from the first day in 89....I recommand Cockpit USA and special thanks to Jacky Clyman who helped me so much!

Very cool jacket but some things you should know Review by jay

This jacket is thick, heavy, comfortable, and super cool. On first impression i would give this jacket a five star rating. Now for the things that you can't see in the limited selection pictures.

1) There is a very thick seem on the inside of the sleeves. The seem allowance seems to be a bit inconsistent and if this was better I don't think that this would be and issue.
2) The sleeve opening on my jacket is not identical from the left to the right sleeve, also the seem does not land in the same place on both of my hands meaning that the seem is not straight on both sides. On my left hand it lands in front of my thumb bone and on my right it lands behind. kinda annoying.
3) There is some sort of manufacturing defect on the inside of the left cuff but it is a huge pain to send the jacket back so maybe I will deal with it, at the same time it is a $1000 jacket. Customer service has been mediocre. It really depends on who you talk to. It will take a week to send back and up to two weeks for them to inspect it and send out a new one. I don't really want to send it back for a month right before the cold gets here.
4) The leather strips that covers the seems are not a single strip of leather. There are small seems where the leather has been paired.
5) I really wish cockpit would provide more information on the manufacturing of these jackets. There is no information on where the shearling is from, or how it is processed.
