Cold Weather Uniform - pilot jacket to withstand the cold:
CWU is an abbreviation for Cold Weather Uniform and as the name reveals, it is made to withstand the cold that pilots could be exposed to. With a shell that withstands both wind and water, you get a strong repellent ability for cold in the shell itself. Then the jacket has a thick and airy padding, which provides a warm insulation against the body.
This is how you have a jacket that can withstand colder weather.
Water and wind repellent shells:
The jacket has an outer fabric in tightly braided nylon and which has been treated to withstand both wind and water. This is necessary for the airy padding in the lining to be able to hold the insulation of the heat against the body. The nylon fabric is also a very thick and durable fabric.
