Manufacturer Info

In November 1959, Wynn helped Alpha take over the sublease on a small factory space on 11th Street in downtown Knoxville from the Levi Strauss Company, a space which had been previously used by Dobbs Industries. After Wynn helped Gelber arrange for the lease of sewing equipment and skilled operators, Alpha Industries was ready to begin production. While Samuel Gelber began to bid on Department of Defense contracts for Alpha, Wynn arranged a subcontracting agreement to manufacture the MA-1 flight jacket so that Alpha's 35 employees would have immediate work. It was only one month later, in December 1959, that Alpha Industries received its first Department of Defense contracts.

Details

The CWU 45/P flight jacket is ideal for those seeking durable construction, warmth, and authenticity. The CWU 45/P jacket features a water repellent nylon outer shell, paired with two layered quilted nylon/polyester interlinings. The knit cuffs, waistband, and front zipper closure with storm flap ensure that you'll stay warm and dry. The CWU 45/P flight jacket silhouette is still issued to USAF and Navy pilots today, although the current Mil-Spec 45/P model comes in fire resistant NOMEX material. Alpha now offers a 45/P Hooded X version with removable fur hood liner.
