Aviator Jackets are one of the most lasting winter coat styles for men that have survived the test of time and are still hailed as the best leather jacket to have in order to combat the harshest winter climates. The A-2 flying jacket design is living witness to the fame of the aviator jacket and is usually made from animal hide. You can order many flying jackets from online stores, and also purchase them to order. A flying jacket made from goatskin can withstand the cold of a height of 30,000 altitudes and were designed to offer warmth to pilots who were operating in unpressurised cabins in the war. The sheep’s wool lining contains properties that help to create insulated air spaces and thus helps you to retain your body heat naturally to take on even the harshest winter chill.
A Mens Aviator Jacket made from sheepskin is naturally costlier than a fabric or other leather coat, but they are worth the money as they have the ability to last a long time (if cared for properly). If you look after your sheepskin coat well, it can last for decades, and you can see this with people on the street wearing leather coats that are over 20 years old. Sheepskin jackets are also naturally water resistant as the fibres within the wool have strong water repellant protective layers that guard the core of the fabric against moisture. The core of each piece of woolen fibre can actually absorb as much as 30% moisture without feeling damp. With the external water repelled and the humidity absorbed, sheepskin naturally becomes a thermal regulating agent. However, it is important to remember that you need to shake your sheepskin jacket after you have been out in the rain or snow, and then brush it gently to ensure you are not left with water spots.

However, a black sheepskin gilet would be elegant and appropriate for both fashionable men and women, and the design will highly enhance whatever outfit the owners of the Gilet are wearing.
