    Yep. The grab-hatch on the back is something I have not seen on a jacket, nor anything outside of Cvc gear-- and although I do have a nomex aircrew jacket (which is just a lopped flight suit)- there's no insulation in mine. Not like this. I've been around. This is unique-- well done!

    That's not a flight jacket.

    It's an armored vehicle crewman jacket.

    The back slot is for pulling an injured tanker out of a hatch.
