Product Description

USAAF B2 leather cap

 The B2 cap is made with genuine "shearling" sheepskin. The WWII B2 leather cap worn by our allies has a one-piece fold up flap around the sides and back which can be worn up exposing the shearling wool or worn down to cover the ears and the back of the neck. 

The USAAF B-2 winter flying cap was popular in WWII with American aircrew and can be seen on many original USAAF movies and photographs of aircrew.

Officially called the "Cap, Flying, Winter, Type B-2" it was issued and standardised in April 1939. They where issued to U.S.A.A.F. aircrew including bomber crews.

All sheepskin garments with a 'leather look' have a sprayed on finish. This is true of every brand available on the market, and the finish will wear to a suede-like appearance over time. This finish is colourfast under normal circumstances. However, certain solvents on hands or surfaces can slightly damage the dark brown finish in a way that the colour could run. These solvents include: Leather seat treatments, hand creams, perfumes, petrol, oils, etc.

Available only in black 12mm shearling.



  • Stiff leather peak is trimmed with 100% steer hide.
  • 100% Leather outer.
  • Genuine 12mm sheepskin shearling.
