AKA Chairman Mao suit. An early and somewhat strange attempt at the layering system produced the CFJ and I believe, an equally natty set of trousers. Green, nylon, with no neck, 4 big round buttons and a very thin, but obvious square padded battern. Like a very very thin horsy-chick stable jacket. CFJs have no insulation value, are large when folded up, make you sweat and are stiff and uncomfortable. Beyond initial training a CFJ has never made it out of the box in the loft, nevermind on to exercise or ops.
