1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Jacket is in brand new perfect condition and has never been worn. The size is XL.

    This jacket is a B-7, designed for the airplane mechanics stationed in the Aleutian Islands…people who really needed something unusually warm.

    The hang tag included is for a different jacket, the M-444, a short style bomber jacket (as were all bomber and pilot jackets) made for high-altitude bombing. There were a bunch of different configurations, with different thickness and degrees of fur depending on the desired degree of warmth. Some were used by American pilots and some were used by the British RAF. But the B-7 was made for the American forces in Alaska.

    Edit: Sold.
