This authentic B-3 jacket became the military-issued cold-weather flight jacket in 1934, and it is still the warmest and most insulating bomber jacket made. Aviators in WWII bombers came to rely on their B-3 jackets as they often flew their missions over Europe in unpressurized cabins, where air temperatures could drop to more than 60 degrees below zero.


Our B-3 is traditionally made from genuine sheepskin leather with a classic, aged look and deep-pile natural shearling along the body, sleeves, and collar. With double straps under the collar and straps at the waist that cinch to adjust the fit and keep out wind. Traditional leather welted seams and side-entry pockets are authentic details from the original. Made in U.S.A.


Not available for shipment outside of the U.S.


Made in the U.S.A. Weighs 5.0 lbs.


Men’s sizes M (38-40), L (42-44), XL (46-48), XXL (50-52). This jacket fits snugly at first but loosens as the leather breaks in.


Professional leather clean only.

I am a female, a mom, who bought three of these jackets, one for myself,(you can't get womens jackets like this) and one for each of my two young adult sons. I don't know why someone would say they are not well made, ours are perfect! The zipper is heavy duty, strong. The leather is substantial. The shearling is thick and soft. The details are perfect. The pockets are large and sturdy, I LOVE the buckels on the collar and hips, I can flip up the collar and buckle it around my neck, SO warm! I hate being cold, and when I wear this up north in the winter, where the snow is waist deep, I am always warm and comfortable. We have had these jackets for a couple of years now, and there have been no problems, no complaints.

Comments about Sheepskin B-3 Flight Jacket:

This is simply a CLASSIC and beautifully designed coat. When comparing several different purchase options (catalogues, etc) this bomber came in as one of the more expensive ones available.... However the quality and authenticity are far and away the best of ANY I have looked at. I am so glad I paid the higher price for this once in a lifetime coat, and I'll enjoy it for many years..... It's just that incredible!

    Comments about Sheepskin B-3 Flight Jacket:

    If you usually fit into large shirts, sweaters, and coats, consider ordering an XL in this size. I ordered the L and when it arrived and I tried it for fit, I found it to be tight and constraining. I exchanged it for an XL, and am very satisfied. My Dad wore one of these jackets on 35 missions over Germany as the pilot of a B-17G "Solid Sender", 423rd Squadron, 306th Bomb Group. I feel his presence when I wear mine.

        I love this jacket! Warm (-45 C in Alberta near the Rockies) & cozy wearing it in strong wind gusts that we get coming off the Rockies in the Foothills. I have lots of other great winter coats but for style, warm, & appearance they can't hold a candle to it. I get nothing but rave comments from perfect strangers all the time!
        The ladies love it frankly! Lol!

              This jacket lives up to it's name. Very high quality, very warm and VERY sharp looking. I have to disagree with the other two reviews...this jacket is NOT supposed to be packed, not meant to be stylish, it's meant to be worn. I have wanted one of these since I was a kid, and 50 years later...I have one. Can't say enough good things about it. No wonder the B-17 & B-24 crews liked it so much. It's absolutely COOL.

              First issued to Navy pilots during World War II, the G-1 flight jacket is still standard issue for officers and enlisted aviation personnel in the U.S. Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard. For civilians, the jacket might be best known as the signature look of Tom Cruise's character Maverick from the 1986 movie Top Gun.

              National Geographic performed an important service during World War II as we supplied maps to the Allies. Maps were often sewn in to the lining of the A-2 flight jackets in case the pilots were shot down over enemy territory. This is a reproduction of the historical WWII flight jackets, originally issued in 1931 and then worn by the allied pilots who flew perilous missions over wartime terrain, and the lining features a re-creation of the survival maps of southern France. A surface of vintage French lamb leather adds to the authenticity. Features include some of the customizations that pilots preferred, such as the wind flap, front zipper with storm flap, hidden snap-down collar points, knit cuffs and waistband, and flap-top and side-entry pockets. Imported.

              This goatskin leather jacket by Schott is a replica of the standard G-1 flight jacket issued to enlisted Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard aviators in the 1940s. Known to moviegoers everywhere as the flight jacket worn by Tom Cruise and his co-stars in Top Gun, it remains part of the uniform for officers and enlisted aviation personnel in the U. S. Navy.

              The first aviators adopted leather as their material of choice because of its durability, warmth, and good looks. This garment takes its inspiration from the G-1 Jacket that was standardized by the US Navy in 1940. The G-1 displaced the iconic A-2 style in the mid-1940s. In 1969, the US Navy Fighter Weapons School was established and only the very best aviators were invited try out the "Top Gun" course. Those who graduated represented the best of the best. These elite graduates adorned their issued G-1 Flight Jackets with military patches that reflected their personal accomplishments.

              Boteh, mango leaf, even Welsh pear—the pattern most commonly known as paisley in the West goes by many different names. The teardrop-shaped, abstract floral comes in infinite variations, and here they’re embroidered on a jacket made of raw silk. Features split sleeves that can be folded back. Fully lined.

              The swirling pattern of paisley—in Farsi called boteh, the word for a young flower or palm leaf—evolved from a traditional Kashmiri design. The Silk Road brought Kashmiri shawls to Europe where they became wildly popular. The Scottish mill that was first able to re-create the intricate design was in Paisley, Scotland, and gave the pattern its English name. This lightweight, 100% cotton, open-front jacket is made in India with an allover paisley pattern and hand-beaded accents. The greens, blues, reds, and pinks evoke the flowers in Kashmir's Shalimar Garden, built by 17th-century Mughal emperor Jahangir and famous for its nightly fountain displays.

              Wet and windy, dry and dusty, or perfectly placid, our water-resistant oilskin jacket is a rugged choice for outerwear no matter the weather conditions. This adventure-ready cotton canvas jacket is inspired by gear worn by miners and ranchers in the vast Australian outback, and treated with an oilskin finish that makes water bead up and run right off. The 12-ounce cotton canvas resists snags and has a broken-in softness from day one. Adjustable back tabs at the waist help tailor the fit. Features a poly-filled cotton lining for warmth, with nylon-lined sleeves. Two lined hip pockets, two zippered chest pockets, and an inner security pocket provide safe space to stash your travel essentials.

              The Taj Mahal in Agra, India, may be the world’s most ornate memorial, built in the 17th century by Shah Jahan for his wife Mumtaz. Inspired by the intricate inlay work found there, artisans hand-embroidered paisley patterns on the front, back, and sleeves of this flattering black silk jacket. No closure.

              New Delhi’s Lotus Temple is a landmark of contemporary architecture. The striking Bahál'í house of worship was built in 1986 as a dome that mimics an unfolding lotus blossom. Its white concrete “petals” are dramatically lit up at night, and the structure is surrounded by nine ponds and 26 acres of formal gardens.
