    We had a week of insane heat. 115/46.4 Degrees. Zero jackets.

    Just unboxed my latest BR First Pattern Tanker in a 42 from Japan. Makes for new 42s & 44s in both Patterns now. And the M41 and M1942 Para Coat... and all the flying jackets of course...
    Tianna won't take pics... Have another week at home. Will get the kids to grab a few pics..

    T shirt it is best option under A2 jacket imho but I like her so much that I walk in it as long as I can , most of the winter, but unfortunately at minus 10 and more it is impossible,
    in those days only irvin or B3

    I like both of those jackets. The 109 looks cool . For some reason not many seem to like the 109 jacket , it’s hardly ever talked about here.

    Just come to Austria :) I wore my B-3 to work today and even got a compliment from one of our pilots who asked me if it is what he thinks it is... Might have brought ELC a new future customer

    That’s a suggestion that definitely requires some consideration ;)

    Our western regions have started to evacuate certain villages while others are cut off already due to several metres of fresh snow... helicopters cannot fly anymore and roads are closed...and for tomorrow we have a forecast for even more snow...will be an interesting day at the airport tomorrow guess it will be an Irvin day tomorrow....

    Burt Griff was referring to AUSTRIA but not Australia . Actually - like he just described also we here in Germany have some villages which are planned to get evacuated due to the high amount of snow within the last few days ...

    It's nuts here Greg, I've worn an A-2 with a jumper and a C-2 knock-off on the colder days for the last few weeks. Nothing more apart from A-10 gloves and a scarf if there's been a wind. It's ridiculously mild. This winter I've worn my Irvin maybe twice and the same with the B-10 and this is where I usually have to have my modern Canada Goose parka for the bad days - the Goose is still in storage which is just unbelievable.

    Not that I'm complaining, who doesn't enjoy wearing an A-2 round this forum!
