That's his immersion suit. His growbag is underneath.

It’s just his jacket , looks the way it does as it’s all bunched up. The flight was from Nellis to Cold Lake, so no immersion suit required. On a second look it could be a survival flightsuit, it would offer protection against the elements had he the misfortune of having to eject at this time of year in that area.

Ta. I hadn't twigged the Nellis-Ottawa route. Doh.
