1940s USAF F-2 Electrically Heated Insert Flight Trousers


F-2 Electric Hated Flight Pants 

The electrically heated suit assembly is designed to maintain top body efficiency during routine flight, training or combat flying for all temperature conditions to 40 degrees below zero regardless the flight time.

The USAF research teams did  all they could to provide soldiers, sailors and airmen with the best equipment and clothing possible. The F-2 heated suit was one of those welcomed improvements. From the bulky and heavy shearling leather pants and jacket to a heated slick unifrom

This suit showed up on the front lines in early 1944 – 303rd Bomb Group

Some signs of storage marks and wear, but overall in very, very good condition.
