Hope everybody is having a great day....I just picked this up at a base thrift store. Looks like a current style flight suit, but the fabric looks significantly different. I tried to research the contract number and couldn't find any info. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Interesting CWU-27P flight suit....

off the cuff I would say this is not an issue item, no NSN, contract number is wrong, tag is wrong for an issue CWU-27/P.....having said that....
the 5% Kevlar is is kinda cool...maybe an example of a experimental suit ...

I believe it may be experimental also....Just too close to the current style. I'll try to get better pictures for comparison. Thanks and have a great weekend.

Wouldnt write this one off as private purchase so fast. It could very well have been from a small contract of flight suits used for testing/trials.

I just saw that you purchased this from the BASE thrift store...I shoulda read the OP closer...you might have an experimental suit/ test suit...
I have been to several base thrift shops...they generally have a good selection of flight jackets and suits

I agree...I love the Base Thrift store. I also picked up a pair of Vietnam Bivouac Booties made by Converse the other day. I would say that's a good week...
