CWU 45/P Flight Jackets


The CWU 45/P Flight Jacket

The CWU 45/P Flight Jackets were originally developed to replace the nylon flight jackets used since the 1940’s, such as the MA-1. The CWU 45P became famous after the movie “Top Gun” was released in 1986. It is still issued to USAF and Navy pilots today.

Different variations of this jacket were made, including our CWU 45/P NOMEX, which is made from Aramid (Nomex), a fire resistant material, and engineered to exceed incredibly tight tolerances and military requirements.
