The Southern Heritage Air Foundation CWU-45P Nylon Flight Jacket

Provided By: US WINGS and THE Yankee Personal-Style Traditional Apparel Quarters Company

The CWU-45P Nylon Flight (CWU – Cold Weather Uniform) Jacket has been upgraded  from the original nylon flight jacket that came out just after WWII. This CWU-45P nylon flight jacket is ideal for those seeking water-repellent construction, warmth, and authenticity. It is the currently issued to the USN & USAF; manufactured to US Military specs, with all the details of the original military issue jacket with the Southern Heritage Air Patch showing the P-51 Mustang (Charlotte’s Chariot II) on the left crest, as shown in the featured image.

Fit: Normal Sizes in both Men and Women: S, M, L, XL, 2XL, and 3XL.

The Model in the featured image is wearing a Medium size CWU-45P Jacket that had a perfect fit and look.


The CWU-45P Nylon Jacket has a water-repellent nylon outer shell for maximum comfort and dryness. The mid-weight jacket is suitable for mild to colder weather climates, ranging from 25° F to 40° F. With all the style and warmth you could want and has the features and durability of the original jacket!

At CHECKOUT, you will have an option to personalize your flight jacket with patches professionally sewn onto the jacket for that personal touch to show your military service, company affiliation, personal name, or your support for the 2nd Amendment, or a motorcycle patch (i.e., Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycle) sewn onto the back panel of the jacket. This CWU-45P Nylon Flight Jacket makes an excellent motorcycle jacket, as well.


NOTE: If you select to add a name tag to your jacket please limit the characters 18 including spaces and submit the name(s) to Email


This also makes for a excellent promotional jacket for your business, customers, service awards, or your organization, like The Southern Heritage Air Foundation has done. Except for the left crest area, the right crest, left and right upper sleeves area, and back panel can include your company logo patch that you can supply us to have sewn onto the jacket, like I have done for my company CWU-45P Jacket.

This is better than a neon sign to promote your business or organization that no ad agency can provide you or your company that comes with its own spokesperson, YOU, your employee or your customer.


If you don’t have a logo patch but would like to have one made we can take your PDF File and have one custom made to your specifications. There is a one time setup fee for digitizing your patch. Please submit you PDF File to my Email:

This is a great weekend jacket to wear for attending sporting events, air shows like the one that Southern Heritage Air Foundation puts on, or during the weekend for working around the house or farm. It is comfortable with plenty of shoulder and chest room to move. It serves as a dual jacket for warm and dry weather with a water-repellent outer shell. This is great for wearing in lieu of your A-2 leather flight jacket for outdoor projects. I use mine for working on my farm or walking the dog.


OPTION to CUSTOMIZE YOUR OWN PERSONALIZED A-2 LEATHER JACKET with ADD-ONS– Chose from military unit or Branch of Service patches, tags identifying you and/or your organization, or send us your own patches you want sewn-on, either for the right or left chest panels or sleeve of the jacket. You can’t make a better statement than with the classic look of leather that will leave a lasting impression to your commitment to getting it done.
