Classic B-3 Sheepskin Leather Bomber Jacket



Classic B-3 Sheepskin Leather Bomber Jacket


This B-3 is the classic WWII sheepskin leather "Bomber" jacket.

    CREDIT: -$0.00

    B-17s and B-24s were not pressurized and the unheated cabins got awfully cold at altitude. This sheepskin jacket kept our bomber crews warm during their perilous missions in the skies over Europe.

    The B-3 bomber jacket is clearly a winner in both warmth and style. Even non-aviators like Gen. George Patton chose to wear a specially-modified version of the B-3 (instead of the standard tanker's jacket). You too can rely on this classic heavyweight shearling to keep you warm on the coldest winter day, and you can count on its enduring style to survive the fickle trends of fashion!

    This jacket is one of the most beautiful ones I have ever purchased! I purchased the brown one with white fur (looks more yellow which I prefer). The jacket is extremely warm and is windproof even when not zipped up. When zipped up, no cold could penetrate this jacket. Despite weighing five pounds, the jacket does not feel that heavy when worn. It is definitely still on the stiffer side right now, but it will be broken in with more use. Everything feels extremely durable on here too; the waist adjustments and belted collar are both very solid. If you are looking for a slimmer fit on this jacket, SIZE DOWN. I bought this in a size 38. For reference, I'm 5'8, have a 38 chest, and weigh about 160 pounds. The jacket fits well, but there is definitely some extra room. I probably would have ordered a 36, but the 38 is still great. The arms are on the bigger side as well, but the sleeve length is perfect. I would like to add that when I purchased this, a thread was coming out of the cuff. I contacted a Schott representative and they told me that someone most likely just forgot to cut the thread during the sewing process; since then, I cut the thread and everything has been good. This jacket is extremely stylish and practical (and makes me feel like Leon Kennedy!) so it is definitely worth the money. It is my first real leather jacket and Schott has done a great job with it. I am already eyeing other Schott jackets, If you're looking for a winter jacket, buy this!

    Absolutely love the b3. I will definitely do business again. I just can’t wait until it’s cold enough to wear it.

    I’ve always wanted a leather jacket that is warm enough to wear during the really cold weather in the Midwest. Now I have one I have been looking for and I am in love with it. I went with the black color because I thought it was unique and I look forward to telling people that I used to be a tie fighter pilot. The quality is amazing is second to non. I never thought I would say I am looking forward to the weather getting to 10°.

    While I did not need another leather jacket, and certainly not one this warm at the beginning of the summer, the B3 Sheepskin just looks so cool.

    With the sheltering in place, I had a lot of time to shop and compare/contrast. In addition to Schott, I looked at B-# versions from Aero, Eastman, and the Cockpit.

    The 257 was the best balance of quality, materials, modern improvements and historical authenticity

    It was difficult to pick the color (I ended up choosing brown, but I almost let Schott pick for me) and the quality of construction and materials are awesome.

    Hopefully the sheltering in place with end soon so I can stop shopping on line. Going to the schottnyc website is dangerous.

    This jacket is amazing! It is very warm, very comfortable, and the fit is perfect. I really won't need to wear layers underneath as it is very warm even at below zero (F) temperatures. I had my eye on another company's RAF Bomber Jacket, but finally the Schott Brown with Gold B-3 Bomber was back in stock and I purchased it. No regrets! For the record I wear a 44L sports Jacket and the size 44 fit perfectly.

    So Ive been wanting this jacket for the last two years and I just finally pulled the trigger on it last week. I love this jacket! The shearling is so plush and not only is it warm but I don't feel wind chill! It's awesome. I'm also pleasantly surprised because I thought that this jacket would be a lot heavier than it is judging by the images online. The craftsmanship is absolutely spectacular. I went with the brown and gold because all of the b3 jackets that I've seen are the brown and white. Just wanted to be a little different and I am glad I went with that decision because I get compliments on this jacket all day long whenever people see me in it.

    I love this jacket. Perfect size, perfectly warm, stunning style. Not unpleasant: now and then friendly interested glances from my fellow citizens.
    Regarding the size: My height is 174 cm, my weight 70 kg (male). Size 36 fits very good. Size 34 would be probably too small.
    Good to know: I ordered on Tuesday, and received the jacket two days later on Thursday.
    I ordered the jacket from Berlin/Germany.
