USAAF Type B-3 Arctic Issue

The Type B-3 was standardised on May 29th 1933, and ours, of course, is manufactured to exact military specifications.

This heavy duty Arctic issue jacket has untanned Shearling Sheepskin exterior with extra strong Horsehide sleeve and seam overlays for extra protection, single map pocket on the right hand side and heavy leather straps with 3-way stud collar closure for use in foul weather to enable the jacket to provide added protection to the lower part of the face.

We also use the spec weight, shorter shearling for the cuffs, waistbands and windflap. Original Triple Marked Talon wide tape zipper with nickel teeth, Alloy buckles recast from originals.

Although the B3 was discontinued by the USAAF on the 23rd of May 1943, the Aero Leather version of the original jacket is still made to the same specification and standards as the Army Air Corps garments, many of which are still going strong after 70 years of wear.

Standard size range is 34" to 48" inclusive, other sizes are available by special order
