Those who love the CWU 45/P jacket's classic shape will love our faux Nomex McGuire 45/P flight jacket. This nylon coat is faux Nomex, which we specially treat in order to give it the look and feel of genuine NOMEX fabric. Our faux Nomex McGuire also includes a quilted polyester lining, a removable, tonal Velcro patch, and fully lined, doubled-stitched cargo pockets that close with Velcro. Looking cool and staying warm has never been easier.

Review: I finally purchased one of these jackets (McGuire 45/P flight jacket, sage green) after retiring from the U.S. Navy recently. Having served aboard an Amphibious Assault Ship (WASP CLASS LHD) for 3 years near the end of my Naval career, I always wanted one. BUT, the Navy was too cheap to supply these jackets to its medical officers, even though we were constantly working and living in an environment surrounded by jet aircraft and helicopters, which were constantly landing and launching 24/7. Go figure. Anyways, I got my jacket at the beginning of the Winter in 2013 and couldn't be more happy with it! The quality is superb, the warmth is great, and the fit is awesome. Through out my Naval career I always wore uniforms and uniform-coats/jackets of the size 42-REGULAR, which usually translates to a "LARGE" size in clothing that comes in sizes of small, medium, large, etc., so I purchsed a LARGE (instead of going up one size as recommended by Aplha Industries), and the jacket fit very nicely, like it was tailored to me! There's even room for a medium weight sweater (such as one of the commando type sweaters we wear in the Navy) to be worn under the jacket. I'm 5' 10", weigh 170 Lbs., have a 33" sleeve length, 17" neck, and a 42-REGULAR torso, so if you're similar to these measurements....LARGE is the size for you. In any case, you will not be disappointed! If you don't know the difference between this jacket and the NOMEX version, then you won't be able to tell either, it's that GOOD! And if you don't need the NOMEX version for it's fire retardancey, then don't spend the $600 bucks (Sorry Alpha). Add a hat, gloves, scarf, sweater and you are "good to go" for those blistering cold windy days. This jacket is also perfect for those "not so cold" days in the 50's-60's without sweltering to death. And gentlemen...your gonna look real sharp for the ladies in this jacket, see for yourself! Not to toot my own horn, but, this jacket turns heads and will get you some very nice compliments (thanks Alpha). I know I sound like a commercial for Alpha Industries, but I'm that pleased with the jacket and so will you! BTW, this jacket is made to the same MIL-SPECS as the NOMEX version, even has the MIL-SPEC tag, just not fire retardant. If any of you retirees still have your leather name plates from your old uniforms or flight suits, they fit great on the velcro chest patch and add a touch of authenticity too!

Review: I bought mine 2 years ago and couldn't be happier. Well made, warm and looks great. I'd love to buy a BLACK McGuire but you don't make them. I'll probably go for the CWU 45/P: hope it's as good quality.

Review: This is my second jacket from Alpha, my first was the Authentic Injector (see review). As expected, the jacket is stunningly beautiful. The material feels good to the touch and the double stitching on the pockets is practical and aesthetically pleasing. The pockets are large enough to stow your phone, gloves, and whatever else you wish to carry (within reason). I did notice the sleeves are a bit long when compared to the Injector, so those of you with T-Rex arms, be advised. I'm not a pilot and I've never served on an air-wing unit, but flight jackets are the bomb. The quilted interior is a nice touch and it'll keep you warm in the California fall/winter. I left the ribbons on the sleeve as a lure for hot chicks...I still haven't caught any, but I'm sure I'll snag a lunker. SEMPER FI to my Marine brothers on our 237th birthday, November 10, 2012. Also, never forget our Veterans and those still fighting on the front lines. Veterans Day November 11, 2012. OORAH.

Review: I just purchased this jacket and I wasn't sure what I was going to get. Well, it's no joke. The look and feel of the jacket is extremely close to real Nomex without the pricetag. Now I have a place to put all of my patches!

Review: Having severed in the Air Force this is the closest to the real jacket without spending the $450 for the nomex which I did not really need.
It looks and feels like the one I used when serving, excellent and well worth the money.
Thank you Alpha for making this jacket the best I have ever had and by far closest of all to the Nomex version.
