Loaded with seven different patches and featuring plenty of pockets for collected treasures, this classic flight jacket gives the junior aviator in your life a well-traveled appearance. The soft and comfy collar can be unbuttoned and removed for a more traditional look, while the knit cuffs and waistband keep your co-pilot snug and cozy; and cold air currents out. With a standard youth silhouette and fit, it sits above the hip.
The B-15 jacket was first introduced in 1944 and used throughout the late ‘40s by 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. The jacket design went through many revisions before a version was produced using nylon.
