These very heavy, but also very warm suits were originally intended for the crews of biplanes. They were too large to be worn in the the narrow fighters, but were used extensively by the crews of large aircraft on long-haul flights over Scandinavia, Russia and the North Atlantic until the end of the war.
They were very popular - they kept warm for hours, even when the heating failed. A Very nice flight suit that is complete and in Very Good Used condition. There is a period repair on one leg.
