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.

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.

    Sleeves a little short with arm down but just perfect for riding with my handle bars. They fit down over the tops of my gloves.

      Have had several sheepskin coats. One custom made by Russian immigrant
      This coat is every bit as good in quality and fit
      Love the authentic detail and added pockets
      Looked at 3 manufacturers of B3 , including old co in UK
      Glad I chose this one
      Expect to have this coat for many years

      Comments about Sheepskin B-3 Flight Jacket:

      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 is a great Jacket if you want the warmest Sheepskin Bomber Jacket out there. Very warm, windproof, OK to wear in moderate temps and like it better than other Goose Down jackets I have for winter wear.

          Comments about Sheepskin B-3 Flight Jacket:

          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.

            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.
