jonny2mad I used to collect wartime flying clothing mainly british, and have two pairs of the irvin flying trousers they have full length zips on the legs their brown long hair sheepskin with pockets normally they had braces to hold them up .

They are very warm and heavy when you have them and the jacket and boots and lifevest and parachute on you can hardly move .

Anyway a great find I collected this stuff mainly 30 years ago and it was rare ish then,

WWII aviators cold weather gear (pants) ?

I found a like new set of really heavy lined aviators pants in my local surplus store... I assume they are the ones worn by the B29 flight crews as I know they flew high enough that it was bitterly cold, and they could not move around much to keep warm

I have never seen anything that appeared this warm ...and I was in the sub arctic ( Greenland, Labrador & Newfoundland) 3 times on International Ice Patrol

they were pretty heavy to lift, not something I could run in, but I figure I could walk in them OK, or get into them when I stopped to rest.. seemed to me they would keep me as warm as the best sleeping bags

they had full length leg zippers so you could put them on easily over whatever you were already wearing

the owner was not in and the clerk did not know the asking price,, I expect they will be expensive, especially as they look like they have never been worn,,, no mildew, discoloring, or anything..
