The B-15 became standard issue to the USAAF after 1943, replacing the venerable A-2. After some initial objections to the change, pilots and aircrews eventually embraced the B-15 and recognized its virtues. It’s lighter in weight, while still being warm. The fur collar reduced neck chafing while scanning the skies for bogeys. Made in the USA.
