 CWU History

First of all the military had a problem with earlier nylon jackets for the reason that the material offered no protection against flames.  They needed a fire retardant Flight Jacket.  Hence in 1972 the introduction of the CWU  Cold Weather Uniform.  It is available in two different weights, the 36/P summer, and the 45/P winter.  It is made of NOMEX (r) fabric, a Dupont product with outstanding thermal, chemical & radiation resistance.  Finally as a result the NOMEX jacket is still issued to USAF pilots today.  Nomex is a flame-resistant material used in garments worn by military pilots, tankers, firefighters, race car drivers, etc.
