The Vintage B-15 Flight jacket was the precursor of the MA-1. By the end of WWII the jacket was considered the premier USAF flight jacket. Made of water repellent Dupont Type 6-6 nylon flight satin outer shell, has a removable synthetic mouton fur collar, a tab for an oxygen mask, a utility pencil pocket on the left sleeve, and a welt slash front pockets with fasteners. Made by Alpha Industries, as it was made originally. The USAF Logo is printed on the label

  1. Great jacket Review by Lt. Col. Paul R. Jones

    I recently received the reproduction Korean War era B-15 with detachable mouton fur collar. It is great, just like the other jackets and apparel I've purchased from US Authentic.
    One suggestion: add a button hole to the top center of the fabric collar and add a button to the top center of the mouton. This will keep the mouton from flying away from the top of the neck when attached to the jacket.
    I am deploying to the Middle East in the near future. I've decided to wear the B-15 as its fiber filled batting makes it just as warm as the A-2, and it is lighter weight, making it easier to carry and store. Do you make a cloth or silk Desert Storm type blood chit? I have your leather blood chit, but it would not look right sewn on a fabric jacket. and would like to have a blood chit on my B-15..."just in case..."
    I took your advice about how to treat my oil soaked goatskin A-2 and tossed it in the dryer for a couple of hours. That dried it a bit and lightened the leather's color. It now it has an aged look. My goal for many years has been to have an A-2 that looked as "50 mission crush-ish" as the A-2 worn by Steve McQueen in the movie The Great Escape.
    Again you have my thanks for US Authentic's approach to workmanship; providing authentic aviation gear at reasonable prices. Be assured that once I return home I will be ordering whatever new products you have.

    Best Regards. God Bless America. (Posted on 7/28/10)
