Have no fear because our Nomex Flight Jackets are the real deal!
Earlier Nomex Flight Jackets offered no real protection against flames and would tend to melt onto pilots during fires.
In 1972, the need for flight jackets that were fire-retardant produced the Cold Weather Uniform or CWU. Made of NOMEX fabric, a Dupont product that is well known for its tremendous thermal, chemical, and radiation resistance. The Nomex Flight Jackets is still being issued to USAF pilots to this day. These jackets are made to US Military specifications. If you purchase a Nomex Flight Jackets, it is made of flame-resistant material used in garments worn by military pilots, tankers, firefighters, race car drivers, and many more.

The military had a problem with earlier nylon jackets. The material offered no protection against flames and melt onto the pilot during fires. They needed a flight jacket that was fire-retardant. In 1972, the need produced the CWU, Cold Weather Uniform, in two different weights. The 36/P, summer, and the 45/P, winter, flight jackets. Made of NOMEX fabric, a Dupont product known for its outstanding thermal, chemical & radiation resistance. The Nomex Flight Jackets are still being issued to USAF pilots today. Alpha began supplying the military with the CWU in 1995 and continued to do so for more than five years. Then produced a commercial version of the CWU-45/P for the civilian market in 1998 and a leather version in the late 1990s.
