The Type B-3 was standardised on May 29th 1933, and remained unaltered until it's discontinuation in 1943. Our versions is manufactured to exact Military Specifications for the 1942 contract.
It is in heavy Shearling Sheepskin 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. Available in original Seal Brown Sheep/Seal Brown Horsehide trim and Seal Brown Sheep/Russet Brown Horsehide trim or the rare "Redskin" shearling. Original Tripple Marked style Talon wide tape zipper with brass teeth, Alloy buckles recast from originals, yes, everything is just as it was back then!
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 over 50 years of wear. AAF Shoulder Decal optional.
