Here’s a modern twist on the classic B-15 flight jacket. With an inner bib with a knit collar, the outer shell features a removable faux fur collar and contrast lining, zipper tabs and pulls. The B-15 Air Frame has two oversized patch pockets, a zippered chest pocket, and a unique screen print detail on the zippered utility/pencil pocket.
The B-15 jacket was first introduced in 1944. It was used throughout the late 40's by U.S. Air Force pilots and air crews. Designed for cold temperatures, the jacket had a Mouton fur collar and 100% wool knit waistband and cuffs. It also featured a tab to hold the pilot's oxygen mask as well as a second one to keep the headset wires in place. The jacket design went through many revisions before a version was produced using nylon.
