Our Classic Sheepskin B-3 Bomber is a timeless heavyweight, modeled after the original WWII shearling jackets that kept American bomber crews warm in unpressurized cabins at altitudes over 30,000 feet. Made from soft yet durable genuine UK Merino sheepskin with a sturdy Nappa finish exterior, our sheepskin B-3 bomber jacket delivers unbeatable function and enduring style. Plush sheepskin continues throughout the body, the arms, and detachable hood and trims the roll-back cuffs and hem. Aged brass hardware, a sturdy zip-front closure, two hand-warming pockets, an interior zip pocket, and adjustable buckled side tabs complete this iconic winter jacket.

This coat is temperature rated to 1°F in moderate activity, such as walking.

Our iconic Classic Sheepskin B-3 Bomber jacket is offered in three lengths: Standard, Short, and Tall. The difference in both back and sleeve length between each version is 2". The standard length of this jacket is designed to accommodate heights of 5'8" to 6'1". For those over 6' tall with long arms, we suggest ordering a Tall size.

I am 5'5 170 lbs. 32 inch waist. Shorter arms. Wear a 42 baseball jersey. Sizing help for B3 bomber jacket?
Hello, I would say with your measurements, you may want to try our 42S. The short version of the classic bomber jacket will have a body length and sleeves length 2 inches shorter than the regular fit. It seems that this may help. You can find this style on our website here: I hope this helps! If you have any other questions do call our customer service line at 800-683-7526 and a friendly representative will be happy to help with more sizing questions and all other inquiries.

I'm 5'5, 208Ibs and 34" waist what size jacket fits? Do have short arms
The XL short will be the best option for you.

I am 5'4" and about 150 lbs. My suit size is 36 short but admiringly my pants went from 30 to about 33 inches so not as slim as I used to be. I assume I should stick with size 36 short? My sleeve length is 30". This question is in regards to the sheepskin B3. Thanks!

Nice but not perfect

4 5
Over all a nice jacket and great that it is available in short. The only things not so good are the pocket lining, I wish were a warmer fabric like flannel. Also the hood is so big it's unusable it comes half way down my face. I would need a 6" longer neck or head for it to fit. Haven't worn it outside yet but seems like it would be very warm. Still debating if I should keep or return?

Awesome jacket

This bomber jacket is THE BOMB! Love the color, ruggedness of the leather and warmth of the shearling lining. Smells great too.

Best ever jacket

5 5
Bought this as a birthday gift to myself (just turned 74). I always wanted a really warm bomber jacket - something for the cooler weather up here in rural New York and a jacket to make my motorcycling more comfortable when the temperatures drop. It fits really well - I am 5'7" and 140 lbs. got the small/short version. Perfect. It is a beautiful jacket, very high quality and very warm. Cosmetically it is a perfect match with my royal enfield classic 500 bike. Very impressive and worth the money (too bad it took me this long to invest in this) my wife thinks it is the best purchase I have made (I have several motorcycle jackets).

Very happy

The recipient was very pleased with the fit, quality, and overall appearance of the item. We tried a previous company called Merino Mood and we were unhappy with the quality, authenticity, and size measurements, and as such were ready to give up on buying a real leather jacket online. I'm so glad Overland came through for us.

There were more products catered to my size. I wear MedSH. Also, my wife wears petite sizes and would be a fan as well if the petite sizes are available.

I like it

5 5
It's a good jacket and I like it however it seems to be bleeding color. After wearing it for a day my hands are getting black. I hope this does not continue. The sleeves are also a little tight and tend to pull my shirt or sweater sleeves. I think this will adjust while wearing. That said I Have gotten compliments on its looks.
