The B-15 jacket is among those with the longest history of continued service in the USAF, a service history of almost 20 years. The emergence of the jet age in military aviation prompted a need for a new, more modern flight jacket. The B-15 was the USAF replacement for the previously bulky, leather flight jackets of the WWII era.

The design of the B-15 introduced many new features, which can still be seen on flight jackets today. Including, a pen pocket on the arm, diagonal slash pockets, and a place to clip the oxygen mask.

The B-15 was the first jacket to incorporate a side pocket for the specific purpose of holding pens. Another feature is the addition of two straps under the armpit that were were used to secure the pilots headphone wires.

This jacket fits both guys and girls.

When Marilyn Monroe went to Korea to entertain the soldiers she arrived in a B-15 Flight Jacket.




1959, Knoxville, Tennessee. The United States Department of Defense recruited Alpha Industries to revamp its military jacket. As the jet age took flight to greater heights and ground troops encountered trickier terrain, the technological needs and real-life demands of our soldiers changed. Simply put, but not simply achieved, Alpha reengineered outdated designs. As better fabrics were developed and tested, Alpha made better jackets for the troops - better designed, better produced, and more reliable. Alpha garments were ranked as warmer, more comfortable, more durable and designed to meet any climatic challenge.
