The Type B-6 jacket was officially adopted in 1939. It did not need to be as cold proof as the Type B-3 but required maneuverability in small planes. Although the form is very similar to the B-3, the details between the B-3 and B-6 are significantly different. It was designed to enhance maneuverability by shearing the sheepskin shorter in the hems compared to the B-3 and giving action pleats to the rear. Both sides of the waist have zippers which can be adjusted for excellent fit.
