    I’m sure the sheep skin is far thicker and a heavier loft also on the LE. My arm goat skin shields seem to be getting a lot of character already after a week. I’m extremely satisfied with my LW and for the price, I better be.

    You are right. Eastman is lighter and the fleece is thinner. LW ANJ-4 is one of a kind. I sold one and I regret it.

    Yes I do too, i may be wrong but I suspect the an-j-4 cuffs were originally made long and wide so gloves can go inside them and the sleeves didn’t ride up when the arms were outstretched .

    Sleeves rolled up. I do this on my Lost Worlds but there is a wool cuff inside the LW jacket.

    Thank you. I believe the fur is the thickes on this all American made jacket. Even the sheeps are American.

    Here in the PNW my ANJ-4 doesn't get much use either but I can't talk myself into getting rid of it.

    Down here on the edge of a Dartmoor valley, that extra bite in the wind means I’ll be keeping my BoB Irvin. But I have always carried a hankering for an ANJ-4. To me it’s easily the best looking US forces shearling. Even if I didn’t wear it much, I still think one will end up in my collection some day?
    Speaking of the Irvin, it’s time to put it on for an early trip to town. Just nudging a wind chill temp of 0 outside. Brrr!

    I hope you mean 0 F not 0 C. 0C is bermuda shorts weather around here.

    The ANJ-4 usually comes out when air temps (not counting wind chill) dip below 15 F (-9 C). This morning it was 13 F in NE Ohio so mine got it's first wearing of the season. A couple winters back it seemed like I was wearing it nearly every day for a few weeks.
