    Cwu sizing question

    Sooo I finally got my valley apparel CWU 36/p L jacket. I'm on the fence about the sizing, on one hand, it fits me really well, the sleeves seem to be pretty good, the shoulders are the perfect size, the width/bagginess is perfect too, BUT the torso is definitely just a little too short. I mean...

    Cwu sizing question

    Ended up ordering a large valley apparel 36/p. Should be here in 1-2 weeks. When I get it, I'll post some pictures. Don't think I'll need to do a review because I'm sure theres plenty of you guys one there that already did one, but I will give the exact measurements I have on mine so people in...

    Cwu sizing question

    Yeah I've contacted a few sellers with large jackets, they all sent me pictures of them wearing the jackets and their measurements.. I think the large might not be too bad

    Cwu sizing question

    Thank you very much :) I found a deal on a large 09 valley 36/p jacket for around 90$. Will probably buy it, hopefully it fits, if not, I'll give it to a friend or resell it, but I think you're right, I'll need to trial and error this.

    Cwu sizing question

    I've been reading measurements online and the sleeves seem awfully short... Is that normal? Like even the xl ones have 24 inch sleeves but 33 inch length... Im so confused on which size to get haha

    Cwu sizing question

    Thank you for the anwser!! That was my biggest consern as well... But I feel like if I go xl it'll be too baggy :/ also what brand is yours? I see a lot of isratex jackets on great deals... I heard they aren't the best but im so so tempted to get one

    Cwu sizing question

    Okay I see, how does the large fit you? You think 6'2 would change anything?

    Cwu sizing question

    That's exactly the anwser I was looking for, thank you, I just needed some sort of reference. Do you think the maker of the jacket varies a lot or they should be pretty much the same, especially if they are milspec?

    Cwu sizing question

    This one is pretty simple, I have trouble understanding the perfect sizing I should take for a cwu 36/p. I found a few great deals on eBay for some "proper" cwu36/p jackets and a few "creative"... But no one lists the measurements... And when I write to sellers, rarely get an answer. For a 6'2...

    Worth buying an alpha cwu made in the us?

    Hahahaha thank you very much, I will definitely check it out then. Also any ideas if I'm allowed to post on buy sell? I read the rules, it said that I need to have 30 posts before being allowed to participate, but I'm not sure where to even see that? I went into my account, it only said how many...

    Worth buying an alpha cwu made in the us?

    Does the government still issue those? Like is it still possible to buy a brand new one? Or do you have to look for "someone" who knows a guy who can get you an original new one? Like is there a manufacturers website where I could order a brand new legit one. Because I wouldn't mind paying more...

    Worth buying an alpha cwu made in the us?

    Hmm okay then I assume I should just keep looking on eBay, keep looking in surplus stores and hope for the best. And I guess the prices I've been seeing are getting normal, because they are definitely more expensive than the prices I've seen people mentioning here. I'll stay on the lookout in...

    Worth buying an alpha cwu made in the us?

    Hello ladies, and gents. My thirst for a nylon jacket has only been temporarily extinguished by my last purchase... But I'm starting to understand that it'll never end . I'm back at it, looking for a descent cwu-45/p or 36/p. Unfortunately I'm in Canada... We rarely have any of those up here (if...
