Abstract : Presently used Flight Coveralls (CWU-27/P) are sage green. New Coveralls were manufactured from blue aramid to provide for a choice in color. These suits were given a special evaluation by operational squadrons. Although the suits were made from a heavy gabardine (the only fabric available in blue at the time of manufacture) which was somewhat uncomfortable in hot weather, the Coverall in general was satisfactory. A proposal is now being evaluated to manufacture and retest Coveralls using a lighter weight blue fabric. (Author)
