- First designed in 1934 the B-3 bomber became the military-issued cold-weather flight jacket. Aviators who manned the B-17s and B-24s in the skies over Europe in WWII came to rely on their B-3 jackets as they often flew for 8-9 hours in unpressurized cabins, where air temperatures could drop to more than 60 degrees below zero. The bomber was vital to the crew’s comfort as the crimp of the sheep's wool created insulating air spaces, naturally retaining heat and absorbing excess moisture...

price. The sleeves are a little long, perhaps by design, since
they easily roll up. Good price for what it is: stylish,
warm, well-made, comfortable but with no
bells and whistles beyond the collar straps which obviate a
scarf. The leather-lined front pockets are the only ones in
the coat but barely accommodate gloves.
There's one thing: I usually take a large - when I received this large size - it was somewhat tight around my chest. (Remember this is thick inside with the sheepskin) So I had it return and got the extra large - it fitted perfect with any type of clothing I wore. So I recommend go up one size.
Yes the sleeves are a bit long but I rather have them long than short. Overall this bomber jacket is the next best jacket after a Cockpit Bomber jacket (which is way too pricey)! At least its affordable to buy. I strongly recommend to buy this bomber jacket from Alpha Industries. Enjoy!
