Untitled Document In the US military there were the more lightweight jackets such as the A-2 and the G-1, and for pilots who flew in the higher, sub-zero altitudes the warmer sheepskin/sheep wool jackets such as the B-3 or the B-6.
The main requirements of the jackets were that they needed to be durable, yet comfortable to move around in, and of course the sheepskin jackets needed to be, in addition to the first two requirements, also warm.
Many pilots enjoyed their jackets so much, that they not only wore them while flying, but also in their free time. Our jackets are manufactured after the original jacket patterns, and once you try one of our jackets, you will surely see why these jackets were so popular.
