Details

Love the look of cinematic pilots, or were you once a pilot yourself? Alpha Industries' CWU Pilot jacket boasts the same silhouette/trims of the original CWU 45/P. Stay cozy with the 100% nylon outer shell and quilted nylon liner. Keep your belongings secure in the signature Alpha utility/pencil pocket and battle the elements with Alpha's CWU Pilot jacket’s lined cargo pockets/front zipper closure with storm flap.

While the nylon fabrics of flight jackets provided ample warmth for pilots, they were found to melt when subjected to the flames encountered during a cockpit fire. The requirement for a fire retardent uniform led to the development of the CWU (Cold Weather Uniform) 36/P and 45/P in 1972. The jacket was made of a fire-retardant NOMEX fabric and featured high patch pockets, knit waistband and cuffs, zippered utility/pencil pocket and fire-resistant threads, drawstrings and zipper tapes. The bi-swing back of early jackets was done away with once it was determined that it interfered with safety equipment. Today Air Force pilots are still issued the CWU 36/P and 45/P. Alpha started producing the jackets for the military in 1995 and went on to make them for more than five years.
