Pike Brothers 1965 CWU Jackets
The 1965 CWU Jacket („Cold Weather Uniform“) of Pike Brothers does not over-egg the pudding, especially when it comes to weight. It was developed in the early 1960s by the US Army and the US Air Force to protect troops and pilots from chill. New forms of insulation with technical fibres were used to make the jackets warmer nd thinner a the same time. Thick, padded polyamide is light as a feather insulates very effectively. The 1965 CWU was originally intended as an underjacket for military gear, but it can as well be worn under the leather jacket on the motorcycle to provide extra warmth, or simply as a sole jacket.
