RAF Fighter Weight Sheepskin Bomber Jacket
This exceptionally thick shearling sheepskin flying jacket was initially built in 1937 for the Royal Air Force (R.A.F.) with open cockpit fighters in mind. Because their flight jackets were too heavy for the cramped, enclosed cockpits of the Spitfire and Hurricane, these pilots had them altered to shed more wool, which increased their range of motion. This short sheared sheepskin version, light enough to wear with a jumper or other layering items, is a new offering from Cockpit USA.
