B-15 Cordura Flying Jacket

The "B-15" jacket is based on the popular flying jacket of the U.S. Air Force and the Army Air Force. It was issued and worn until the late 1950's. In today's time, the jacket is liked and worn by men and women as well.

Sometime between 1942 and 1945, the first flying jacket made out of nylon was developed, and introduced in 1947. The "Type B-15" was an instant success with just about every pilot who encountered one, and even favored over the leather jackets which were worn up to then. The "B-15" was not only just as durable and warm as the leather jackets, it was less bulky and more comfortable to wear in a cramped cockpit. The jacket was light weight yet warm and usually had a removable synthetic fur collar to reduce neck chafing. The nylon also added a safety feature: the smooth surface prevented the pilots from getting stuck on switches or buttons in the cockpits, which just kept getting tighter from all the additional gadgets which kept being installed.

Our B15 version is made with real Cordura (!!!). The same material is used in motorcycle jackets. When cordura is manufactured, the polyamide fibers get respun and interwoven. Since it is more tearproof than conventional nylon, it is used in the manufacture of motorcycle safety clothing, webbings, high quality sports bags, backpacks, etc.
