The Cockpit Fighter Weapons US Navy flight jacket is similar to the summer weight CWU-36P flight jacket. Made from a tightly woven, but light weight nylon twill and lined with sheer nylon satin. This men's nylon jacket is proudly made in the USA and comes in a sage green shell.

So comfortable
Awesome looking jacket, I get unexpected compliments on it all the time. Bi-swing back makes it comfortable to move around in; it's actually the only jacket you'll ever see me drive in (I almost always take my jacket off in the car). It also does a great job keeping the wind out. I've found that it keeps me comfortable between 40 degrees (F) and possibly up to 65 (F), but I tend to run hot- I'm always warm- which makes this jacket perfect for fall/spring/chilly days. However, the lack of side pockets means your hands will get cold on a really chilly day (you can't really stick your hands in the front pockets). As for sizing, I'm 6' 2", 185lbs, athletic slim, long arms. I actually went with a medium as I don't have a bulky chest and the sleeves can be on the baggier side. It fits perfect, not too tight or baggy but I still have room for comfort. Sits perfectly below the waist. Haven't had issues with it riding up when I sit. I don't plan on layering; I'd need a large if I did. Overall, great quality, awesome looking and the most comfortable jacket I own.

Aviation historian
What is perhaps not mentioned here is that this particular (non-Aramid) iteration of the CWU-36 design has a bi-swing back feature, similar to the early Mil-Spec CWU flight jackets. This feature was eliminated after about 1980 on the Aramid military issue version due to potential fouling with aircrew flight gear, but it is certainly preferable to the subsequent issue that lacked this feature, in that it permits a greater range of motion. Unfortunately, due to its being non-Aramid, it is unsuitable for actual use in aircraft but still constitutes a useful, stylish 'wind-cheater' for ground use (as was pointed out by another reviewer). The price is about right, although still a bit steep for a pure Nylon design (typical of most Jeff Clyman's 'AVIREX' products), and although made from good quality material, the sewing can be a bit less than perfect. There seems to also be a bit of variation from production run to production run in terms of the size and capaciousness of the front pockets. The term 'Fighter Weapons Flight Jacket' is purely a 'COCKPIT' marketing gimmick and means nothing in military circles. Overall all, though, a good all around and stylish jacket for the budding 'Birdman' wannabe.

Mr
I have searched for a high quality CWU-36/P for quite a while only to find cheap knock offs. As a Air Force veteran who had the real thing I can tell you I could not be happier with the fit and quality. HIGHLY RECCOMMEND
