The British RAF MK2A Quilted Waistcoat is an excellent example of specialized equipment for aircrew in the Royal Air Force. These soldiers need to be kept warm yet traditional jackets may interfere with operations inside of an aircraft. The solution that the Royal Air Force fielded was this waistcoat which is lightweight, quilted, and a sleeveless design. All aspects of this waistcoat make it ideal for layering or it can be worn stand alone where you'll enjoy the same tactical advantages it gives airmen in the British Royal Air Force.

The quality of the product is excellent, but it is definitely sized incorrectly. Order at least two sizes LARGER, unless you plan to lose twenty pounds before next winter.
The vest runs pretty small. I wear L - XL. I ordered an XL. It was more like something between a US-medium. The buttons were 3" from the button holes when I tried it on It won't button. I should have ordered and XXXL. The vest is flat and not really fluffy but it would be fine to wear under a jacket if it were the right size. Just order your 2 sizes bigger than your US size.
