Military Flight jackets were created to keep the pilot protected from harsh weather conditions due to exposure in an open cockpit. Later, the military faced the issue of early bomber jackets melting in the event there was a fire in the cockpit. To solve this issue, the CWU (Cold Weather Uniform) was created due to the thermal resistant, fire-retardant capabilities. This jacket was originally made in 1972 to replace the MA-1 Jacket. The military continues issuing these jackets today. Manufacturers have created a nylon version of the CWU-45P and it remains a popular jacket in the fashion industry.

The fit is waist length and what we would call a correct fit, not meant to be baggy. The jacket is a bit what you may call puffy in the arms and body so a proper fit is best. If you want it a bit longer or larger you may choose to go up a size but most of our customers find it comfortable as is.
