B-9 Down Parka
- Temp Rating
An Eddie Bauer Original. First created for the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II, the B-9 Parka and matching A-8 Flight Pants made up what the USAAF called the "Cold Weather Buoyancy Flight Suit"—their first that was down insulated. Today we've given it a cotton/nylon shell with StormRepel® DWR finish to shed moisture, 650 fill Premium Down insulation, and underarm gussets for extended mobility.
NOTE: Temperature ratings are based on a controlled laboratory test, using low and moderate activity levels. Also consider: your sensitivity to cold and wind-chill; time of exposure; activity level; and use of layering.

They really understood how to make things in WW2! None of this cheap plastic junk you find in everything today. The brass zipper works unlike the junk your competitors sell. Plenty of pockets and the shoulder loops are useful, too. Don't ever discontinue this product. Keep it just the way you made it in WW2.
