    Nice B-15A, looks like a very sturdy and well built jacket. The original fabric is a very nice touch, and the triangular tabs add to a very unique and good looking jacket. Lots of pictures of Korean War pilots and aircrew wearing these.

    There's a Buzz B-15A in my size on ebay right now for cheaps and I'm very tempted to pick it up. How much warmer is it than a B-10? Also, is the collar obnoxious at all?

    Hi Evan,

    It's slightly bulkier and likely warmer than a b-10 due to the heavier fabric and the sturdy wind flap. However the collar is surprisingly unintrusive, not obnoxious at all. That did concern me too!

    Agree fantastic jacket, I have an Eastman B-10 and it's superb. I think ELC do make the best B-10 & B-15 repros on the market.
