Thank you for your feedback.
Very well made and fit as expected.
Fits great, and has just the right amount of warmth.
That's the whole reason for a jacket like this--easy to reach pockets, move arms, etc.

Product Description

The b-15 is a classic flight jacket made tough to battle the harsh elements. It features a nylon shell and removable synthetic mouton fur collar. The alpha b-15 features button tabs once used by pilots to connect oxygen masks and headset wires. This style of flight jacket is our tight fit so we recommend you order one size larger than what you normally wear.

    Order took about a month to recieve and another month for a rep. to call back for a review of return? Really? Postage was covered by Alpha for return (thank God), and about another month to recieve a refund. 2XL does this jacket no justice, 2X medium is more percise. I'm about 6'2" tall not wide, and this thing fit just below my belly button? The sleeve came to about mid arm? If you're a plummer this is the jacket for you.
    Was this marketed for ...America?
    If you have Hobbits, nothing over the age of 10 will do.

    Some may find that they like to wear a big version of this, but the best fit is up above the waist at bottom and snug all around. That's the whole reason for a jacket like this--easy to reach pockets, move arms, etc. The B-15 is preferable, actually, to the MA-1 if you like a collar. I have both (several really--my Naval Air experience was with the MA-1). Actually prefer the B-15 style--you will too if you want to feel like Chuck Yeager flying X-1 in 1947 or so or like a spaceman in a Wally Wood EC comic from the 50's, 'cause that was the model for flight gear at the time. Cool. The sage green is the right hue, too.

    Love this jacket! Fits great, and has just the right amount of warmth. Only reason it got 4 stars is that the colar does not lay flat like I would like, but I'm sure that will sort itself out eventually.

    Bought this jacket as a winter coat in the Midwest. Love the removable mouton collar and the weight of the coat. It has kept me plenty warm in a 7-30 degree weather range. Do recommend buying 1 size larger than normal. I normally wear an XL but got a 2XL and it fits great over a sweater. High quality contruction and Alpha Industries reputation for excellent mil-spec products is well-deserved. Can't recommend the B-15 too highly. Grew up in an Air Force home and remember my dad wearing one of these for years!

    Not being able to decide between the heavyweight B-15 replica and this midweight B-15, I ordered both.

    The heavyweight "B-15 Replica" is SUPERB in every aspect. I am shocked to see Alpha has now discontinued it.

    About the second jacket, Alpha mistakenly shipped me a CWU45 instead of the $138 B-15 I'd ordered. The CWU is a nice jacket, but not the jacket I wanted, and they kindly replaced it (We're all only human and Alpha made good on their mistake).

    (Note that while the B-15 runs small, the CWU45 does NOT run small if you like the latter. I wear an "XL" B-15, but would wear an "L" CWU-45)

    I'm disappointed in the appearance of the $138 B-15's black fur collar (Alpha calls it a "synthetic mouton fur collar"). It looks cheap. The texture does NOT go with this jacket at all. I decided to unbutton and removed it.

    As Alpha states, both the "B-15 Replica" and $138 B-15 run small. I wear 16-16.5 inch neck shirts and LL Bean's generous fitting size "L" coats. The size XL "B-15 Replica" and $138 B-15 fit me great. A size "L" would have been too small.

    If I had to do this all over again, I'd still buy the green XL "B-15 Replica" for the "coldest" weather, and the black XL $138 B-15 for cold weather (removing the collar from the $138 B-15).

    If Alpha orders another run of "B-15 Replicas", make sure you get one while you can.

    Size: SmallColor: Navy Verified Purchase
    I ordered the small because I wanted a trimmer fit. I have purchased MA-1 from a different brand, that model was a medium and looked awful on me. This jacket is well made and I get compliments everywhere I go. The teal color of the "Navy Blue" is beautiful and unique. The fit is great except it rides up a tiny amount in the back. I am 5'11'' and around 150 lbs, if you want a trim fit that is more like what would have been standard issue, buy the jacket that Alphas size chart says to get. If you like baggy clothes and plan on wearing lots of layers, buy a size up.

    Loved this jacket and its heavy quality. Really feels as a genuine flight jacket, not like cheap crap from an outlet.
    Only it fits quit large so had to send mine back and order a smaller size. Hope it fits and is not too small.
