The B9 Sheepskin Bomber Jacket from Cockpit
The B9 Sheepskin Bomber Jacket was a favorite of many P-47 and P-51 fighter pilots because it was made to go Zoom! With its closed zippered sleeves and versatile by-swing back there is no taking a back seat to anyone. And this one is made by Cockpit and in the USA. There was a reason for the slight change in pattern from the normal issued B3 Bomber Jacket. The cockpit in fighter aircraft was still narrow, so the pilot had to fit into was much smaller, with an absolute confined space.
The B9 Bomber Jacket was made to fit the need of the fighter pilot working in a small place. It not only met the need for comfort and warmth in high altitude cold air, but furnished the requirement of movement in a small space. The B9 Bomber Jacket was used by B-26 bomber air crews as well.
The B9 Sheepskin Bomber Jacket was such a pleasure to wear, soft and supple that is also made a strong appearance in heavy and light bomber crews.
It’s still great for anyone riding on a Motorcycle, or ATV, ---even a Swamp Boat. The B9 Bomber Jacket works great with anything that features an open cockpit. With its standard zippered sleeves the cold just stays outside and not up you arms. It keeps back the wind and the cold like nothing else will.
Made of 100% American Shearling (Shearling means the pelt has never undergone separation such as splitting), its protection from the cold is unsurpassed and has been routinely celebrated since it was first made during World War II. This is the highest of Quality, none better!
Comes with side entry pockets and a buckled leather collar strap. The sides can be narrowed with the waist belts for that customer fit, especially for motorcycle riders. Heavy duty Side Entry zipper slash pockets and zippered sleeves. All the advantages of a B3 in a tighter B9 jacket fit. Made in USA by American Craftsman.
