Product Details

The B-15 is a classic flight jacket made tough to battle the harsh elements. Features a nylon shell and removable synthetic mouton fur collar. The Alpha B-15 features button tabs once used by pilots to connect oxygen masks and headset wires. Comes in Black, Sage and Navy (please note that the original color 'Navy' ordered by the U.S. Military has more of a teal shade to it...rather than the darker 'navy blue' traditional jackets are known for). This jacket has more room in the stomach area so if you like a tight fit order down a size.

Product History

The B-15 jacket was first introduced in 1944 to replace the B-10. It was used throughout the late 40's by the U.S. Air Force pilots and air crews. Designed for cold temperatures, the jacket had a Mouton fur collar and 100% wool knit waistband and cuffs. It also featured a tab to hold the pilot's oxygen mask as well as a second one to keep the headset wires in place. It went through many revisions including one that started using nylon. Alpha started making reproductions of the B-15 bombers in 1993 and today produce them to the B-15D specifications including the nylon, tabs and Mouton collar.
