Amazing coat that is well made and fits true to size
The product is well made, fits well, has nice pockets, and is comfortable.
Each fit as expected and the one ordered in replica blue was a real navy color.

    Alpha Cwu 45/P Flight Jacket XL/Black
    Although the style and overall appearance of this flight jacket is impressive, the quality of the stitching and craftsmanship is poor for a $90 jacket. It's made in China, which perhaps accounts for the poor sewing quality. The "Remove Before Flight" ribbon on sleeve is cheap stenciled copy of the cotton embroidery product available separately on Amazon.

    The nylon fabric was badly wrinkled as if stored wadded up in its plastic bag and stacked on top of each other. I suppose "steaming" the fabric would remove these wrinkles, but for $90 I expected less wrinkles and not being wadded up and stuffed tightly in a box. I contend the jacket is worth $40 or 50, but not $90, especially with the poor stitching. Pls see attached photos.

    How nice this jacket is got tarnished for me when I found out the new Alphas are no longer made in Knoxville TN but in China. Seriously?? This is flat-out stupid. I would gladly pay extra to have a US military jacket made in the US. Is that too much to ask for? Are my expectations really that unrealistic? How pitiful.

    And yes they size small, and suit shorter stocky guys best. If you are tall and thin with a long torso, they will look too short on you - and if you get one that's long enough, it will be too baggy in the midriff. There are "Tall" versions available but they can be hard to find, in stock at least, for a CWU-45P.

    excellent coat, though a bit on the expensive size. fortunately i read the reviews before buying, and it is true that these coats run a bit small, so you should go up a size, or if you are on the fence, go with larger. otherwise, it is smooth on the inside, dries quickly when wet, and is quite comfortable currently in 60 degree weather. i could see this coat being comfortable with a normal t shirt underneath down to 48 degrees. Great product.

    I purchased the CWU-45P not too long ago to serve in colder weather because the landing leathers A-2 is not intended for very low temps and while leather is good for wind it does jack for cold. Alpha's website says the jacket is good to 25 degrees its actually good to lower then that I have been wearing it around in -12 here in Pittsburgh pa and can report its quite warm. The CWU-45P is also the 2nd most popular so called bomber jacket currently offered to civilians ( the A-2 is the most popular). Its still current issue to USN USMC and USAF pilots I'm not sure about Army aviation but I suspect they would follow suit. The Mil spec version is fire retardant nomex but seriously are we going to need that going to the store? I think not. Now on to the jacket itself I have a number of nylon jackets and this is by far the best of any its heavy grade and very smooth (puts me in mind of nomex) the only drawback is its shorter then it looks not that I find that a bad thing for work The second thing thats going to surprise you is no slash handwarmer pockets ( the A2 has them) there was some small stitching issues ( not uncommon these days) the tag is Velcro and will accommodate any Velcro backed tag (my N7 mass effect looks awesome on it) its doing a great job as my winter coat I'm glad I bought it after such a positive experience I'm thinking about the M-65 as well. I got the CWU for my USAF patches collection I'm hoping to put my Aliens colonial marine corps patches on the M-65 stay tuned for updates

    Since I received this garment it's very easy to have it as a favorite, it is very comfortable, keeps you warm, looks great and it's also very well constructed giving you this military looks but fashion at the same time. Lots of compliments on it. Love Alpha!

    Horrible stitching job making the jacket actually feel cheap and more like a fake.

    Does not even deserve 1 star. Military service men are turning in their graves. So disappointed as I have purchased jackets from Alpha before and I cannot believe that this passed QA?

    Just make these things in the USA please and Iwould gladly pay the extra amount!

    I've owned both the Air Force flight jacket or the Marine flight jacket and have had one for the past 40 years. These are one of the most durable, versatile, and comfortable jackets in existence. I have even had my department's shoulder patches and cloth badge sewn on for uniform wear. I will never go without one.
    My only complaint is that the jacket far outlives the cuffs and waistband.
