Description

The Alpha B-15 Slim Fit is the classic B-15 with a slimmer fit throughout the body and sleeves. Like its counterpart, the B-15 Slim Fit has a flight nylon, water-resistant shell with nylon twill lining and 100% polyester fill. It also features the removable faux mouton collar and tonal color lining. The nylon web oxygen tab and headset wire snap tabs pay homage to the original military B-15 bombers mil-spec features that helped pilots secure their oxygen masks and headset wires during flight.

Introduced in 1944, the B-15 Flight Jacket predates the famous MA-1 jacket by 5 years. It was introduced after General Henry H. Arnold decided he had wanted something more modern for the next generation of fighter pilots, and after a brief period of wearing the B-10 jacket. The improved B-15 was born. Featuring various different shell materials like nylon and a cotton-rayon blend, opposed to the cow and horsehide leather that was found on the A-2. The B-15 was also the first pilot jacket to feature the pen pocket that’s now considered a staple among pilot jackets since.

These particular Alpha B-15s are a slim fit for those who don’t care for the somewhat bulky look of the original Alpha B-15s.
