CWU-27/P Flight Suit
Government issue, brand new, fire resistant
100% nomex, Brass zippers.
At some point in the 70s or 80s, we figured our pilots might not want to be on fire. So we made a nomex flightsuit for them. We kept the same shape as the previous all-cotton ones, but there were some minor changes, mostly pocket placement and closures.
These have one shoulder pocket, two chest pockets, two thigh pockets, two calf pockets, and a knife/strapcutter pocket on the inner thigh. All of these have zippers to keep your skittles from going everywhere in-flight. There are also velcro closures at the cuffs and a little belt to show off just how much cardio you do. The collar is also a very stylish shawl. The legs also have zippers at the bottom to allow this to be put on over boots without having to take them off.
The big thing is the material: Nomex is crazy comfortable in the heat, incredibly comfortable, and very lightweight. Wash it a few times and it feels like butter. In a good way, not a weird way.
These are all brand new from the Government.
Sizing: Size is based on your chest size in inches. No need to size up or down, though there is about a size-worth of play up or down for different fits. The length is based on your height, but if you have a particularly long torso, you'll want the long. Trust us on this one.
