Great jacket; well cut and super-comfy! It's a much warmer jacket than my B-10s, and will keep me toasty with just a Pendleton underneath in sub-zero temperatures!
This jacket is one of the best WWII reproduction values you will ever find. The Bronson B-15A is very accurate and constructed with high quality materials at a price that is $800 less than other brands. It is lined with a wool blend pile which is almost as warm as the alpaca pile in the originals but at a fraction of the cost. It also washes and dries nicely in the washing machine and dryer.
You can’t go wrong with this jacket.
This is the first item I've ordered from Bronson, and I am very pleased with it in every way. Materials and craftsmanship are excellent, the feel and fit are perfect for me, and it has been a warm and comfortable jacket for me in the coldest weather of this past winter. I look forward to wearing it for years to come. And, it looks great, too!
Wow, the quality of materials and craftsmanship looks impeccable. I just picked the jacket up so if stitching and materials hold up as well as it looks, double wow!
I was inclined to telling people stay away from this brand...
because I've been waiting for this jacket's restock for months. And now I'm telling you, it worth all the wait. Great quality, great details, vintage cut, affordable price, what else can you ask for?
Excellent jacket - very warm, very well made. Pure value for money.
Excellent quality jacket from Bronson and very warm too.
Exceptionally well made jacket. Bought it as a birthday gift for my oldest who is both a USMA grad and in AF flight school. She loves the fact that it’s an Army Air Corps coat.
Comme d'habitude, excellent rapport qualité prix, coupe ajustée, parfaite reproduction du blouson WW2
This is an excellent jacket and I would unreservedly recommend it. The fit is great, it's very comfortable, and I can tell it will be warm when winter arrives. Anyone who likes vintage militaria will appreciate it. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that it has one small failing, which is that the mouton collar is awfully thin (in terms of thickness, not width) compared to other mouton-collared jackets I've owned. It is in no way a deal breaker and this is still a fantastic jacket for the price, but I hope that Bronson will incorporate this feedback in the future, since this would be such an easy mistake to fix.
Excellent quality and fit. Fast shipping. Extremely happy with this purchase!
Fantastic jacket, superb quality cut & materials. I have had a number of jackets from Bronson (MA1, B15C, deck jacket) and they have all been fantastic, the only thing I would say is as a European I order 1 size above minimum to get a nice fit. I would highly recommend these guys.
The construction is superb, the materials first rate, and it feels very nice. The look is exactly as seen on the website, and it has weight to it. The fit is essentially a US large, or 44 Regular. It feels a bit snug, but that is due to the lining, which is very good, and it should work well with a thin sweater or long sleeved shirts underneath. The zipper and all of the snaps work easily, requiring little effort to open or close. I am very pleased with this jacket, and am looking forward to my next purchase, once the items are again in stock. I give this a ten out of ten.
