B-7 Aleutian WWII Sheepskin Parka
- Product Review (submitted on February 17, 2020):
I had been debating about buying a B-7 sheepskin parka for 4 years now and finally pulled the trigger on this a few days ago. This thing is stunning! First, delivery was fast...got it in 4 days. Second...I currently own several shearling parkas and peacoats from Aston Leathers, and two B-3 sheepskin jackets from Alpha Industries and Cabelas. This coat is by far my favorite piece. It looks well constructed and the material isn’t skimpy either...has some heft to it. Like one of the other reviewers wrote, this thing is warm. On sizing...I typically wear a 44R but bought this in a size 42 as suggested by Cockpitusa. The 42 was spot on but if I had planned on wearing a bulky sweater, sport coat, or suit or underneath or even if I had a belly, I think that a size 44 (my normal size) would have been a better fit.
I more than likely would have purchased this coat years sooner had there been any video reviews released because the photos on the cockpitusa site don’t do it justice. Give it a shot if you’re on the fence.
