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.
