Details

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 made from an amazingly soft and supple genuine sheepskin 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.

"authentic B-3 jacket "

A bit heavy but understandable as it is an authentic vintage leather jacket. It rather warm, good for outdoor less for city trips. Very cosy to use when driving motorcycle or cabrio. Always wanted one as I admire the US Air Force.

"Low Quality"

Pros: the jacket has a nice design, warm and very soft interior wool/shearling lining. Con: The leather is of poor quality, very thin (so it will be easily damaged or punctured), extremely stiff. I've had over 30 leather jackets of varying costs and quality, and for the price, the leather on this jacket should be soft, pliable, thicker than 2-3 mm. The leather feels like it could easily crack as well, meaning it was chemically treated with low cost chemicals/dye. I should have listened to the 2 negative reviews, but I ordered the jacket because of the 10+ good reviews. I can only deduce that those good reviews are from customers who have not felt what quality leather/ sheepskin should feel like. Very disappointed and surprised that National Geographic would sell this product on their catalog.

"Excellent quality and construction."

I purchased this for my husband after buying to slightly inferior quality jackets from a rival brand and what a difference in workmanship. The leather is beautiful and shearling plush and deep. It is very soft and warm. Husband has worn this out in 20f weather with just a t shirt underneath...yes a T shirt and still felt warm and toasty. Is it a little on the expensive side? Yes, but worth the investment and american made. The other two I bought before were imported from another country and poorer quality. Shipping was also prompt.
