Fun Facts about the CWU-45/P
Why are the pockets angled on the CWU-45/P?
When the jacket was designed officers realized the need for pockets from a functional standpoint, but did not want their pilots walking around with their hands in their pockets. Consequently, they asked that the pockets be angled and placed high on the front of the jacket.
