Type B-2 :: Eastman®

CAP - Flying Winter Type B-2 Eastman®

North American sheepskin
Veg-tanned Steerhide shoulder
Mil-spec woven

Standardised on April 21st 1939 as the regulation winter flying cap, the B-2 proved to be immensely popular.

Like the B-6 and D-1 jackets, it is made from a 1/4 inch fleece depth shearling, with a polyacrylate dark brown lacquer on the outer. The stiff leather peak is trimmed with leather hide.

This is timeless cap that looks as good today as it did then, and one that so typifies the stylish image of the American airman - a true classic!

Just like the original, ours is made from 1/4 inch fleece depth shearling and has a stiff leather peak which is trimmed in Horsehide.

It is constructed to the authentic 5 panel plan and each seam has the correct zig-zag cover stitch adding strength to the overall construction.

Available in size: 7(XS) - 7 1/2 (XL).
