    • Water repellent 100% flight nylon with sateen rayon lining as per the original spec
    • Shoulder epaulets with snap fasteners
    • Two front flap pockets
    • Alpha signature utility/pencil pocket

    Product History

    Introduced in the early 1950s, the L-2B replace the L-2A. The flight jacket was issued to US Air Force and Navy pilots and ground crews for use in light-temperature zones. It was later replaced by the CWU 36/P. The L-2B has knit cuffs, waistband and collar and the utility/pencil pocket. Early versions had the oxygen tab and USAF insignia. Alpha started making the jacket for the military in 1960 and went on to produce it through the 1990s. In the 1970s Alpha offered the L-2B to the commercial market and added color variations and epaulets.
