Designed according to the 1938 Irvin Airchute Co. pattern, the British Royal Air Force Sheepskin Flying Jacket represents the epitome of English heroism during WWII. Worn over London skies by English fighter pilots flying Spitfire and Hurricane fighters in air battles against Nazi forces, this bomber jacket provided the warmth and freedom of movement needed during com- bat. Crafted from hand cut, supple sheepskin pelts, this historical piece boasts original details including the leather belt closure, zippered cuffs, leather welted seams, underarm ventilation grommets, an interior canvas equipment pouch and a full frontal zipper over a wind flap. The jacket is completed with the modern addition of side entry hand warming pockets, which make it extra wearable and convenient in colder weather. Custom sizes can also be ordered. Proudly made in the USA.
