Following the adoption of the B-3 Flight Jacket from which is takes many design cues, the sheepskin TYPE C-3 Vest was introduced in an unofficial capacity to the USAAF in 1936 as a layering piece to compliment the Flight Jackets in use at the time.
This model introduces leather piping to prevent the sheepskin from billowing around the front and brass reinforcements on the front pockets.
