Details

Alpha Industries' B-15 is a classic flight jacket made tough to battle the harsh elements. It features a nylon shell, removable synthetic mouton fur collar, and button tabs once used by pilots to connect oxygen masks and headset wires. This jacket has more room in the stomach area. If you prefer a tight fit it is recommended to order down a size.

Introduced in 1944, the B-15 jacket replaced the earlier B-10, and was used throughout the late 1940s by US Air Force pilots and ground crews. Designed for cold temperatures, the jacket had a Mouton fur collar and 100% wool knit waistband and cuffs. It also featured tabs to hold the pilot's oxygen mask, and to keep the headset wires in place. The jacket went through various revisions throughout its service life.
