M-44 Pilot Jacket
Since 1941, the M-44 flying jacket
of the US Navy has been considered as the most beautiful flying jacket of all
After it was introduced, the M-44 instantly became the favorite of the sheep
wool jackets which were used by the bomber-crews. The M-44 is a great alternative to the R.A.F. Irvin and the B-3
jackets; without the usual wool trim at the sleeve cuffs and waist. It is the successor to the classic B-3 sheep
wool pilot flying jacket.
To secure some extra stability and an exclusive look, cow hide was additionaly
sewn onto the sleeves and pockets.
This classic flying jacket is a must-have for pilots and drivers of a convertible. The snap-flap pockets, which can be closed with a button, keeps your valuables
secure- this means that this jacket is completely compatible with aerobatics and stunt flying maneuvers. The collar can be tuned up and secured with a button-strap for extra wind/cold
If there is any doubt left, then the big sheepskin surface and the cowhide armor-plating
will convince you - as will the reinforced seams.
The M-44's design was well thought
out and fullfills all your wishes.
Because of the special fabrication,
this jacket is extremely oil and gasoline resistant.
- additional cowhide armor-plating on sleeves and pockets
- snap-flap pockets, closable per button
- reinforced seams
- extra wind/cold protection via collar
- oil and gasoline resistant
Vegetable tanned in a barrel: now
a days, this method is rarely used because it is so time consuming and takes
a lot of work.
For us, the vegetable tanning is still worth the results since this is the only
way the leather receives its authentic look and the
great touch sensation.
The jacket's high quality and great
price are ensured because we can produce it in our own tannery!
